American Express Cobalt Card Confirmed Multiplier Locations


Share this feature:



One of our readers asked us a question via the comments on our post Two months in and the American Express Cobalt is living up to its name to see if there is a published list of where you can maximize spending on the Cobalt card via the 5x Multiplier locations (10x during the month of December 2017)

We replied that there is not a published list but would be willing to put one together with the help of our readers. You can help by commenting below to let us know what category a merchant falls under based on your spending! We split the chart below in the three earnings categories so that you can see what points you can expect to get with the card. Please note that merchants may change at any time so while a merchant may be listed in one category when you read this page it is entirely possible that they switch categories before we are able to update it.

You can also check American Express Canada's Shop Small website - it lists all their independent merchants where you can use your American Express cards at. It doesn't tell you what category they fall under but in most cases the restaurants, bars and grocery stores should fall under the Eats & Drink category.

American Express Cobalt Card resources on Rewards Canada:

Card details:

• In your first year as a new Cobalt Cardmember, you can earn 2,500 Membership Rewards® points for each monthly billing period in which you spend $500 in net purchases on your Card. This could add up to 30,000 points in a year.
• Earn 5 points for every $1 spent on Card purchases at eligible restaurants, bars, grocery stores and food delivery in Canada
• Earn 2 points for every $1 spent on eligible transit & gas purchases in Canada and eligible travel purchases. That’s 2X the points on purchases that get you from point A to B
• Earn 1 point for every $1 in Card purchases everywhere else. We won’t tell you where to spend, we’ll just reward you on your Card purchases
• Get advance access to tickets to some of the hottest concerts, shows and events through Front Of The Line® by American Express Invites® and advance screenings to blockbuster movies. Plus, more great perks.

Please Note:
In addition to commenting below to let us know about mulitpliers that don't show up American Express Canada has asked the following of all cardmembers:

It’s best for the Cardmember to call customer service for bonusing related issues. We need the Cardmembers data to be able to source the transaction in the back end to determine if the multiplier worked.... without Cardmember data, it’s hard to determine what would have happened.

This way American Express can make sure everything is working properly and if not they can get it fixed.
