Aug 29 Update: Priority Club MasterCard adds Platinum Status, bigger sign up bonuses for MBNA Best Western & Choice Hotels Cards, 25K Points for Country Inn Stays

News, Tips & Tricks
Today's news is pretty much reserved for Hotel Credit Card market in Canada!

If you are current holder of the Priority Club® World MasterCard® from Capital One or are considering getting the card, I have good news for you. As of September 17 the card will offer Priority Club Platinum Elite Status instead of the current Gold Status. Members will retain the Platinum Status for the life of the account (ie you cancel your credit card, you lose status). What does Platinum Elite Status get you? 50% Bonus Points on all IHG stays (Gold is only 10%), Complimentary Room Upgrades subject to availability, and guaranteed room availability if you book at least 72 hours in advance. See all the Platinum benefits here, to apply for the card please visit Capital One

In other hotel credit card news you may have seen my post from earlier today for the MBNA Best Western MasterCard that now comes with a 50,000 Bonus Rewards Points sign up bonus for a limited time and as of tomorrow, the MBNA Choice Privileges MasterCard will come with a limited time 24,000 bonus points sign up bonus although it appears the page is already up here.
