Feb 5 Update: Lots of great bonus offers, oneworld elite benefits enhancement, Voila Hotel Rewards in Canada

Lots of great bonus offers added today to RC plus some good news for oneworld Emerald elite members and Voila Hotel Rewards adds Canadian properties

News, Tips & Tricks
The oneworld Alliance announced two more top tier benefits on January 31st that oneworld Emerald members will be able to take advantage of:

An extra checked baggage allowance, above the standard limit for the cabin class in which they are traveling - either one additional item where the piece concept applies, or an extra 20 kg (44 lbs) where the weight concept applies - when they fly on any oneworld member airline.

Use fast track lanes through security when flying from select key airports worldwide on select oneworld member airlines.

Last week when I mentioned the St. Regis deal for Voila Hotel Rewards members I had to dig deeper into the program as roughy a year ago they had no hotels participating in Canada and only one in the U.S.. A quick check shows that VHR now has 14 hotels in the U.S. and 2 in Canada. The two in Canada are the St. Regis in Vancouver of course and the Lexington Inn & Suites Windsor. Nice to see another hotel loyalty player enter the Canadian market in regards to properties and though small I'm sure those hotels have loyal visitors who will welcome the addition of VHR.
