Sep 10 Update: British Airways introduces Lifetime Gold Elite Status, tons of new Aeroplan bonuses, SAS Bonus for Hilton stays

Another busy day here at Rewards Canada!

News, Tips & Tricks

You may recall that yesterday we posted a couple of targeted Air Canada flight bonuses, well it turns out Aeroplan had incorrect terms and conditions on the systemwide bonus of up to 15,000 Bonus Aeroplan miles. This offer is actually open to all Aeroplan members.You can find out more details in the bonus offer section below.

British Airways Executive Club
is introducing Lifetime Gold Elite status for members that have earned or will earn 35,000 life time tier points. Full details can be found here

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club has improved their award ticket cancellation policy. Previously you would forfeit 25% of the points if you cancelled 7+ days out and would lose all the miles if cancelled within 7 days of departure. Now the rules state:

 If for any reason a flight reward is cancelled by the Member outside 24 hours of departure, 100% of the Miles will be re-credited to the member’s account. A cancellation fee of £30 for changes to flights originating in the UK, US$50 for changes to flights originating in the US or local currency equivalent of US$50 for changes to flights originating in any other region will apply. If for any reason a flight reward is cancelled within 24 hours prior to departure, no Miles will be refunded and no fee will be charged. If you change the original travel date (within 24 hours of departure) and later decide to cancel your flights, you will forfeit the mileage used for the reward. Once travel has commenced Miles cannot be refunded. Except as expressly stated in these Flying Club Terms, Miles are not refundable and changes or revalidation are not permitted in case of no-show.

This is a welcome change for those in the Flying Club program!

    America has a new credit card with interesting new features such

    as waived change fees. The 15,000 points sign up bonus is just ok

    especially given the $149 fee but the reward redemptions to SEZ and PPT

    look good.
