November 27 Update: Aeroplan contest winners, 40,000 bonus Be Well points at Rexall and tell us your Mobile Device Insurance stories Earlier this month we ran an awesome contest to celebrate the launch of the new Aeroplan program and wanted to thank everyone who entered the contest as well as to Aeroplan for the prizes!

Some cards offer unlimited access to select airport lounges, while others offer limited access each year. Figuring out how many times you will be travelling in a year may dictate which card you choose.
In Canada, the three ways you’ll typically access airport lounges through your credit card are Priority Pass, American Express Centurion and traditional airline-specific lounges, such as Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge and the Mastercard Experience Lounges…
