Editor`s Review:

The Scotiabank Platinum American Express® Card is definitely not your average Scotiabank card. This card has a high annual fee. However, the rewards are simply exceptional.


First of all, this card gives you 4 points of Scotia rewards for every $1 you spend on dining, entertainment, groceries and gas. Second, it offers you some exquisite travel privileges. Third, you get 30,000 points the moment you make your first purchase.


This card costs $399, with the supplementary cards each costing $99. The interest rate for this card is the regular one, with 19.99% for purchases and 22.99% for cash advances.


In terms of features, the Scotiabank Platinum American Express® Card offers you the following:


- Premium concierge services

- Priority pass when travelling and access to 600+ VIP lounges all across the globe

- Leverage the American Express Invites program to be the first one to discover unique events and experiences happening in your city

- Use your VIP pass to gain priority entrance at worldwide events

- Use the Scotia rewards advantage to enjoy new offers

- Capitalize on the Hertz club membership for improved services

Scotiabank®* Platinum American Express® Card is a premium credit card with exclusive benefits and 7 types of insurance coverage.

Aside from its high return rates, the Scotiabank®* Platinum American Express® Card provides an impressive list of purchase and travel insurance benefits that justifies the annual fee. The best credit card for insurance coverage in Canada, it provides peace of mind and comprehensive protection on the road and the longest extended warranty and purchase protection.
