Mar 19 Update: JetBlue Status Match Offer, Coast Rewards 50% off redemption sale, Etihad Business Class sale out of YYZ

The loyalty world is more active today with the Marriott changes, 50% discounts on Coast Hotels redemptions and the JetBlue status match offer

News, Tips & Tricks
If you missed it earlier today, we detailed the Marriott Rewards 2014 Hotel Category Changes. Over 25% of their properties in Canada are moving up to a higher award category which means they will cost you more points. Read all about here.

There is a great Elite Status Match and Fast Track to Elite Status offer from south of the border. The offer is from JetBlue and while they do not fly to Canada if you happen to hold elite status with any of the 6 major U.S. airlines you can get 2014 Mosaic status with JetBlue. This can come in handy if you fly within the U.S. or from the U.S. to the Caribbean. The offer also provides a fast track to Mosaic status in 2015 by simply earning 3,750 TrueBlue base flight points within 90 days of registering for the offer (that 3,750 points requires US$1,250 in spending on flights). I don't believe too many of you will take advantage of the Fast Track offer unless your work has you jetting around within the U.S. quite a bit. Still this is an offer worthy of a mention for the Status Match as there should be quite a few of you who hold status with the big 6 U.S. airlines. Click here for complete details on the offer

Air Canada has suspended flights to Venezuela due to the unrest happening in the South American country. If you have tickets booked to fly on AC to Caracas you can call them up for a full refund.
