I can’t even begin to count the times my American Express card has provided me with VIP access first thanks to their Front Of The Line Program.
I’ve been able to book restaurant reservations, secure concert and theatre tickets before the general public, just for being an American Express Cardmember. I love being able to get first pick at a choice selection of seats. It’s one of the reasons why I became an Amex Ambassador and why my Gold Rewards Card is so much more than just a Credit Card.
One of my more recent memories was being able to access an exclusive Amex lounge at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. Not only did I get the best seats in the house because of my Front Of The Line access, I was able to access more benefits once I arrived at the lounge. It was a relaxing space carved out just for Cardmembers and I didn’t have to shuffle through the crowds to get a drink. A well-staffed and dedicated bar inside the lounge made the whole experience that much more relaxing.
As a Cardmember, I get unparalleled access to concerts, delights packages and experiences throught the Front Of The Line program. The initiative has been running for 25 years and it all started with ticket sales to The Phantom of the Opera in Toronto. American Express has gone on to build strong partnerships with LiveNation, Mirvish, Ticketmaster and Massey Hall for even better access for Cardmembers.
We’re helping American Express Canada celebrate the 25th anniversary of their Front Of The Line Program! American Express will be giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner every day for the rest of the month.
