Book Thru AMEX Travel & Save This Month

AMEX Canada is offering bonus AMEX points when booking through the AMEX Travel website.  If you book a short haul flight (YYZ to NYC), you're looking at 15K points MINUS 5K that will be given as a bonus back later, plus $128 in taxes (though you could use your points entirely and fly for free, but that's not a great use of points). See below!

Fixed Points Travel Program

From March 1 – 31, 2018, earn up to 10,000 points when you book a flight using the Fixed Points Travel Program1.

Earn 5,000 bonus points when you redeem between 15,000 and 50,000 points for flights using the Fixed Points Travel Program for destinations such as Canada, U.S., Alaska, Bermuda, Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii and Mexico.

Earn 10,000 bonus points when you redeem 60,000 points or more for flights using the Fixed Points Travel Program for destinations such as Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, and South America.

Compare that to Aeroplan:
They had no availability for the return date I had chosen if I wanted to fly at the fixed mileage rate of 15K Aeroplan points, so I changed the date to see the final price.  They want 15K Aeroplan points PLUS $194.51.

At least for this month, using AMEX Travel makes more sense!
