TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2015 /CNW/ - Today, American Express is opening the doors to allow people to experience the access that American Express Invites and the Front of The Line program have to offer Cardmembers– even if they don't currently have an Amex Card.

"Not a Cardmember yet, not a problem" is the tagline of the campaign.  Non-Cardmembers are given a chance to experience one time access to a special event, and pre-sales to some of the biggest concerts going on sale this Fall.

Starting today, Canadians who visit will have the chance to enter a contest to get on the guest-list for special dining and film events and get a one-time use promo code to access pre-sale tickets to some of the hottest concerts this Fall. Concert announcements to follow.

Events include an advanced screening of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and an exclusive dining experience at one of Canada's Best New Restaurants as determined by Air Canada enRoute magazine. Further details provided below.
