Amex 2021 changes to their card line in Canada combo thread
Feel free to add info/rumours as they come available to you.
Changes to Cobalt Card happening in mid-August, as discussed on the Cobalt thread, are an increase in the AF (from $120 to $155.88), the addition of streaming services as a bonus category, and the ability to transfer MR-S to Aeroplan (rumoured to be at 1:1 though nothing in writing yet from Amex confirming that ratio).
Changes to My Choice Card have it going away and being converted to the re-launch of Green Card in Canada. Green Card, the traditional entry point of the Green-Gold-Platinum-Centurion ladder, will have no AF, and earn 1 MR point per $1 of spend.
RFD contributors have noted that Amex phone reps have said changes will be coming to Gold Card later this year. What these are is not yet known, but maybe a metal card like in the U.S., and maybe higher bonus categories on dining out (perhaps like the 4% earn in the U.S. version?) and perhaps a higher AF (U.S. Gold Card AF is $250 and the Canadian version is $150)
There is speculation that Platinum Card might also undergo an earning and/or benefits tweak in coming months.
This thread just will present a place to discuss the 2021 changes, rather than the in-depth discussion of each card's benefits and history, which is best handled by the individual threads specific to that one Amex card.
This thread can discuss things across the Amex card line up, including compare and contrast with different Amex cards and how the changes will improve things, or not.
