I love experiences! Whether it’s a cool new restaurant that just opened in the city, travelling to a different country to explore, or heading to a concert to listen to one of my favourite artists perform. I live for new experiences and I’ve found the perfect credit Card that rewards me for just being me.
I’ve had a credit card since I was 15 and have tried a few different ones over the years. In the past I have used them to pay for dinners, shopping, groceries and travel but collecting points was challenging, making it hard to save up enough points to redeem for anything worthwhile. My mindset was that all credit cards were created equal… until I was introduced to the American Express Cobalt Card. Initially what drew me to the Card was how it easy it was to earn points. I earn 5X the points on eligible eats and drinks purchases that I was already making – going for brunch, enjoying a nice dinner or even grabbing my morning coffee! I also earn 2X the points with my American Express Cobalt Card on eligible travel and transit, whether I’m taking the streetcar to work, using a rideshare app across the city or booking a hotel for a weekend getaway. For everything else, I earn 1X the points for every dollar I spend! Redeeming points is also super easy with the Fixed PointsTravel Program, you can redeem for trips with any airline, at any time!
It doesn’t stop there, as an American Express Cobalt Cardmember, I get Front Of The Line access to pre-sale tickets, special offers and access to events around the city. Over the summer, I was given the opportunity to watch Mary J. Blige and Nas perform at the Budweiser Stage. It was such an amazing and elevated experience from start to end. Entering the venue through the American Express Cardmember entrance was a breeze, we beelined it straight to the American Express Lounge to relax and enjoy a couple drinks before the concert. With Front Of The Line access, we were able to score amazing seats, not that we were sitting anyway, we were way too busy dancing! :).
Earlier this month, the Jonas Brothers were back in Toronto for their Happiness Begins Tour and of course, I HAD to go! With Front Of The Line access, Cardmembers get access to pre-sale tickets and some of the best seats! It was like Nick Jonas was singing to just me, sorry Priyanka, haha. It was such a Cool experience and I am now a Sucker for earning points ;).
The American Express Cobalt Card was designed perfectly for my lifestyle. From earning points to special access to great events to travel benefits, my American Express Cobalt is the only credit Card I need. Thank you Amex Canada for rewarding me for being me!
