    I was thinking about switching off my Visa Aerogold card because I don't think the $120 annual fee I'm paying for it is worthwhile. Are they any decent cards out there that offer any worthwhile rewards with no annual fee?

    I was looking at the AMEX deals but do you ever have problems with AMEX not being accepted in many places?

    GM VISA - if you're planning on buying/leasing a GM car anytime within the next few years

    AMEX Air Miles Card - good way to collect those air miles, 'specially if you go to the liquor store often.

    i heard a rumour about the air miles program being cut off soon.
    apparently some airline (i'm guessing air canada) was bitching about having to give away almost 1200 free trips a day. So they might be pulling out of the program soon.

    Not the "AIRMILES" program. We buy our tickets off of anyone who makes the trip but right now Air Canada is one of our biggest suppliers.

    The program your thinking of is "Aeroplan" which was Air Canada's own loyalty program. Its been found to actually provide the airline with next to no benifit in most cases.

    is that Air Miles or their own Aeroplan? There are a lot of people getting free trips out of the Aeroplan memberships, but I don't think that many people get free trips from Air Miles (it takes a while to actually accumlate the points)

    AMEX is accepted at pretty much all places, some smaller, independent stores/restaurants may not. but i'd say you will be covered for 99% of the time. but not in Cuba - they don't even accept AMEX travellers cheques.

    I haven't heard anything about Aeroplan's success, but this does cause concern when I have enough for a couple free airline tickets. I'd hate for them to cancel the program and not get to use them.
