How American Express is Helping Canadians Get One Step Closer to Their “Happy Place”


Most popular


After a slower travel period, many Canadians are daydreaming about their next trip and eager to vacation again, anticipating that moment they’re finally able to get back to their “Happy Place”. 

And there’s more to exploring new places, trying new cuisines and enjoying moments of relaxation than we might think. New research conducted by Amex Canada found that 85 percent of Canadians say travel makes them happy and brings them joy, while 83 percent agree sharing travel experiences with friends and family have a positive impact on their wellness. 

With travel on Canadians’ minds, American Express Canada has teamed up with beloved actor and comedian Will Arnett to shine the spotlight on its redesigned suite of American Express Aeroplan Cards. Whether Canadians are travelling now or daydreaming about their next getaway, the Cards offer unique value and travel benefits to enhance every step of the travel journey. 

Amex is encouraging all Canadians to begin thinking about their “Happy Place” as inspiration for future travel as narrated in Arnett’s new social video series.  Whether your “Happy Place” is rooted in the anticipation and excitement of booking a highly anticipated trip, or if it’s reminiscing on past memories of experiencing a new city with family and friends, one thing is certain: you’ll reach this destination sooner thanks to American Express and Aeroplan. 

“After 18 months of TV binges and many painfully awkward video calls, I want nothing more than to begin creating travel memories again”, said Will Arnett. “I love the fact that with the American Express Aeroplan Cards, everyday spending like work-from-home takeout lunches can help you rack up points to put towards your next adventure.”
