Given this is a travel card from American Express there are a few extra perks available on this card. While the perks are not as generous as the Best Travel Card Canada it is pretty good for a no fee travel card.

None that we could see. But if you have feedback/experience with extra fees on this card please add your feedback in the comments below.
The fact that this is a free travel card makes it very appealing for people looking to accumulate travel reward miles. The rewards rate is pretty good at 1.25/$1 spent. The redemption rate is also pretty good at $0.01/mile which can be used to offset all sorts of travel costs put onto the card.
The other feature of this card is that is very accessible for every day users. The requirements are quite low at only $15k/year in annual income. It’s not necessary to have a high income to get access to this travel card.
The welcome bonus makes this card very attractive as well. At 10,000 points this is the equivalent of $100 in travel expenses.
The last feature of this card is the American Express customer service. It is probably one of the best in the industry (I say this from personal experience). If you have issues with your card their support staff are easy to get a hold of and pleasant to deal with. No getting lost in endless levels of customer support.
The only downside of this credit card is that American Express tends to have a smaller network of merchants who accept the card. This limits its ability to be the primary/only credit card.

For someone who wants easy access to travel rewards/benefits then the Blue Sky Credit Card from American Express is an excellent choice.
