Living The Notable AmexUNSTAGED Experience

We were lucky enough to be able to experience first-hand what Amex Unstaged offers and believe us: the benefits are more than notable.

If you were following our twitter feed last week, you would have seen some of the highlights we experienced at a very intimate and special concert by country icon Tim McGraw that was filmed by award-winning director Bennett Miller.

800 screaming fans at the renowned Hammerstein Ballroom with a musical legend?

It simply doesn’t get better than that.

This collaboration represented the 15th installment of the innovative live stream music series, “American Express Unstaged” and although the show happened in New York and most of us were not able to make it in person, American Express gave everyone access to tune-in from home on YouTube and get the front row experience – exactly like we did.

Missed it live? Don’t worry; Amex knows that as young professionals, we don’t always have time to do everything we want, so they’re doing the next best thing and keeping the looped rebroadcast on on demand.  

So even if you weren’t able to make it to NYC, you can still tap into your inner cowboy.

We guarantee that after watching what we did last week, you’ll want to keep an eye out for upcoming UNSTAGED experiences

Conveniently, it’s the getting to part that AMEX also excels in.

Here’s how it works: since we flew from Pearson, we were able to take full advantage of the Cloud 10 benefits Amex provides. Select Cardmembers can enjoy benefits including:

– Access to fast-track airport security priority lanes in both Terminals 1 and 3

– Access to the Plaza Premium Lounge to relax before our flight

– A designated taxi and limousine line located at the arrivals levels

– Complimentary valet services

– 15% parking discount at Express Park in Terminal 1 and Daily Park in Terminals 1 and 3

And for those who are not Cardmembers yet, you’ll still have access to the following: 

– Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the airport

– An American Express sponsored resting area after clearing security

Did we mention we had access to the Plaza Premiumlounge at Toronto Pearson upon departure? We won’t lie and say we didn’t enjoy being spoiled – especially during airport rush hour.

Simply put, this is why American Express is the young professional card of choice.  

They’re fully committed to providing their Card members with exclusive opportunities to experience premium entertainment that they may not otherwise have access to. And beyond that, they provide a superior level of service from start to finish.

So what are you waiting for?

Grab that glass of wine, put on your comfiest pants, and tune in to experience Tim McGraw’s world-class live show from your favourite camera view (seriously, you can choose from three) at
