This Is How We Roll In Gold

This is a hip + urban sponsored post.

The HUG website focuses on five categories: Food, Travel, Life, Style and Events. For almost two years now, our team has been eating our hearts out, jet-setting around the world, offering life advice, sharing style tips and covering the hottest events in Toronto. When we discover a goodie, you are the first to know. And that's why we can't stop talking about the American Express Gold Rewards Card and how it fits so neatly into the lives of hip + urban girls.


Redeem gift cards to popular and fine dining restaurants in the GTA anywhere from 3,000 to 30,000 points.

Lisa and I are quite different but one thing we always agree on is having our monthly meetings at restaurants. Can't make big decisions on an empty stomach! So we've been redeeming our Membership Reward points for dining gift cards to Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants, Colborne Lane, Bymark and The Keg, etc.

I've partied my way around the globe and not to be biased, but I still think Toronto has some of the best nightlife in the world! So when a few Vancouver friends popped by, I took them to Spice Route for girls' night out.


The Card lets you enjoy the flexibility of transferring Membership Rewards points to a wide range of loyalty and frequent flyer programs including Aeroplan and Starwood Preferred Guest.

Next stop for me? I transferred my Membership Reward points 1 to 1 for Aeroplan miles so for 75,000 points, I am in Thailand and Japan for the next 4 weeks!


Life is all about sharing so I love using my Membership Rewards to treat family and friends. The Catalogue is stacked with all sorts of experiences, products and services - there is something for everyone, even Aunt Mildred.

This past Christmas I surprised my sister-in-law with ski passes to Whistler Blackcomb. One to five day adult lift ticket can be redeemed for 10,000 to 40,000 points.


Treat yourself to great shopping without feeling guilty! The next time you reach into your wallet, pull out that gift card instead of cash. Membership Rewards points can be exchanged for retail gift cards starting from 3,000 points.

Lisa's style is casual chic so she mixes and matches by trading in her Membership Rewards points for gift cards at Banana Republic, The Gap, Roots and Holts, etc.


Did you know the average person spends at least an hour waiting in line or being put on hold every day? In a lifetime that is equivalent to five years!

Well you won't be left waiting behind the velvet rope with Front Of The Line benefits. Every American Express Cardholder gets first dibs on select concerts and special events.

For us, American Express is more than just a credit card. It's a world of Yes where you can travel wherever and whenever you want, trade in points for cool stuff and experiences, and get access to all the best places in the city.
