American Express Canada is excited to announce that several of its products were awarded in Rewards Canada's 11th annual ranking of the Top Travel Rewards Credit Cards in Canada. Most notably, the American Express Cobalt Card has been ranked the Top Overall Card for the second year in a row for its strong earn rate, bonus points for new Cardmembersand well-rounded insurance benefits. Cobalt also won the Top Hybrid Credit/Charge Card for its flexibility when redeeming points for travel.

"We are thrilled that our Cobalt Card has once again been recognized by Rewards Canada as the Top Overall Card in the country," said Megan McKee, Vice President & General Manager, Consumer Products & Partnerships, American Express Canada. "This Card is truly unique and reflects how American Express is committed to delivering best-in-class products and offerings that reward our Cardmembers for living life to the fullest." 

Launched in September 2017, Cobalt was designed with the social lifestyle of millennials in mind - a generation whose spending habits reveal a passion for food, travel and entertainment. The Card rewards Cardmembers for simply living their lives and doing what they already do by offering 5x the points on eligible eats and drinks, 2x the points on eligible travel and transit, and 1x points on everything else. Plus, with Cobalt Perks –the product's offers and experiences program – American Express Cobalt Cardmembers can receive regular bonus reward offers and access to great events. 

The American Express Cobalt Card also gives Cardmembers flexibility when it comes to redeeming their points through the company's Membership Rewards program. Whether it's using their points to book travel or paying for purchases they've already made on their Card, Cardmembers have plenty of options when it comes to point redemption. 

"For another year in a row, the number one card in Canada has been the American Express Cobalt Card," said Patrick Sojka, Founder, Rewards Canada.
