The highlights for today are some nice hotel stays bonuses!

News, Tips & Tricks
Don't forget to enter our contest to celebrate the launch of Aeroplan's dExclusives! You could win 5,000 Aeroplan Miles! Find out more here.

In the bonus offers section we have the latest Aeroplan bonus for Marriott stays this summer. We usually sees some sort of varation of this promotion every winter and summer. This summer version seems to entail a lot more properties than usual here in our home country but does also come with a minimum 2 night requisite with one of those nights being a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The offer definitely caters to the lesuire traveller versus the business traveller unless you head out for work on a Sunday. As always to be able to enhance your stay you could get yourself the Marriott Premier Rewards Visa card which comes with automatic Silver Elite status which will get you slightly better treatment like late check out for your Marriott stays.



If your travels are taking you to Latin America this summer you should check out this SPG promo for Aloft Hotel stays. If you need to stays in any of the five cities  participating or better yet two of the five cities then you should definitely book or move your stays to these Aloft properties as not only will you get double Starpoints on each stay but when you complete stays at two of the participating properties SPG will throw in 10,000 more Starpoints!

Aeroplan introduces dExclusives rewards for Distinction members - tell us which one you like for a chance to win 5,000 Aeroplan Miles!

Yesterday Aeroplan announced and launched the latest benefit for its Distinction members, dExclusives. What is dExclusives? It is an new reward option that will allow Distinction members to bid on or redeem Aeroplan miles on a wide variety of one-of-a-kind rewards.  This new reward option reminds us of SPG's Moments where you bid Starpoints on similar money can't buy experiences and is the first to be offered by a Canadian based loyalty program. This definitely can be a good reward option for those members who have more miles than they know what to do with, especially on the high end items like the FIFA World Cup or Grand Slam Tennis final offers!

From yesterday's press release:
dExclusives will offer everything from access to professional sporting events, tickets to sold out concerts and once–in-a-lifetime trips that are curated to offer some of the highest quality products and  some of the most in demand experiences from around the world.  dExclusives rewards include:

Escapes – Once-in-a-lifetime trips such as a trip to the world soccer championships in Brazil, and weekend getaways, such as a trip to the PGA Championship or a wine-tasting weekend in Napa Valley.

In the City – Amazing tickets to some of the best events in town such as: Sold-out concerts or exclusive access to sporting events. 
Money Can’t Buy – Building on Aeroplan’s Money Can’t Buy reward category, members can bid on a variety of truly priceless, highly coveted items such as a customized guitar signed by musical artists such as Alanis Morissette or Nickelback, or signed sports memorabilia like PK Subban’s autographed Team Canada Olympic jersey from Sochi.
 
Here is how it works:
Browse – Distinction members can check out all the rewards currently available for auction at the dExclusives auction site: www.aeroplan.com/dExclusives.
Bid – Place an entry or maximum bid on the site.
Win – If you’re the highest bidder when the auction closes, you win.  Miles will be automatically debited from your account and you will be contacted by an Aeroplan dExclusives representative about the next steps.

In addition, Distinction members will also have a chance to bid on ‘Redeem Now’ opportunities whereby special rewards will be offered in limited quantities and at a fixed amount of miles, giving members the thrill of accessing their dExclusives reward instantly.

For more information, or to place a bid, please visit www.aeroplan.com/dExclusives


Contest portion!

Now we want to know what auction you would bid on from the current list and/or would items you would like to see in the future! Aeroplan and Rewards Canada have teamed up to see what Rewards Canada readers and subscribers would bid their miles on by having you comment here on the blog. What do you stand to win? One lucky entrant from all the entries on the Rewards Canada blog will be picked at random and awarded 5,000 Aeroplan Miles

Here is how you can enter the contest:
Leave a comment below on what auction you would bid on (you don't actually have to bid, just tell us about the one that interests you the most) and/or tell us what type of items you would like to see in future dExclusives auctions!

Void where prohibited.  No purchase necessary.  Winner will be required to answer a skill testing question.

Now live - Latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Offers (Valid for stays until July 31)


Despite the recent change in the terms and conditions of PointsBreaks, it is still one of the best redemptions in the hotel loyalty program world.  The new rules state that a member can only book up to 2 reward reservations per hotel participating in the individual offer (ie 2 at Pointbreaks hotels and 2 at Last Minute Reward Night hotels). What this means is that if you want to book a Pointbreaks offer at a hotel you can only have two reservations. No longer will you be able to grab 3, 5 or more reservations (one reservation per night) as some people did to make sure they got the nights at the low award price, plan a trip for some of those nights and then cancel the rest. This change is both good and bad. Good in that more members should be able to grab award nights at the lower levels but bad if you truly want to plan 3 or more trips at one location and have no plans on 'working' the system by cancelling some of those nights. My tip to get around this would be to book 2 reservations with one IHG Rewards Club account and then have your spouse book 2 more etc. Of course this is dependent on both accounts having enough points to redeem for these awards.
The latest set for stays until July 31st, are now available for booking via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.

Why are IHG Rewards Club Point Breaks such a great deal? Because they offer reward nights at participating IHG hotels Worldwide for only 5,000 Rewards Club points. For those of you not to familiar with Priority Club, normal redemption rates for Rewards Club reward nights run from as low as 10,000 points for some Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations to 50,000 points for ultra-luxurious InterContinental locations and even these locations can participate in Point Breaks. So as you can see you can receive a discount of 50 to 88% off the regular redemption rates. You may be thinking that the high end hotels won't participate but they do depending on the time of year! Please note that like most loyalty promotions these offers are capacity controlled so I advise to book sooner than later to ensure you get the Point Breaks rate. These offers are now bookable via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.

Here is the list of hotels participating this time and as you can see there are only 7 Canadian locations versus the 9 we had during the last PointBreaks.

May 26 Update: Alitalia MilleMiglia targets flyers aged 14-25, US Airways buy miles bonus extended, Aeroplan bonus for Starwood redemptions

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend

News, Tips & Tricks
In the bonus offers section we post new bonuses from Alitalia MilleMiglia that targets flyers aged 14-25. In many of my discussions with various levels of employees at loyalty programs I have often mentioned that there are two markets generally ignored or underserved by the programs and those are the youung person market and the old person/baby boomer market. Looks like Alitalia has taken noticed of the first at least with the MilleMiglia Young program which not only has the bonus offer listed below (2,000 of those miles are totally free) but thay also offer everyone in that age group 20% off award tickets. So you earn up to 4,000 miles for joining, you get a 50% bonus on all your flights and a 20% discount on award tickets? That's the way you should target a market! You have a group that cannot afford to fly as much (of course the ~14-18 year set probably have to rely on their parents) so what do you do? You award them more miles on their flights and a discount on redemption, this way that group of flyers who would normally take many years to earn enough miles for an award ticket (or perhaps even never!) may actually have a hope of a redemption and as anyone in the loyalty industry knows that once a member has actually redeemed for a reward, they are more likely to continue using that program and remain loyal as they actually feel the program provides them with value. So if you are in that age group or have kids that age get them to join now at least for the 2,000 miles that come totally free and then work on earning more miles if you are an Alitalia flyer!


The US Airways Dividend Miles up to 100% bonus on buying Miles has been extended to May 31st (you can ignore our post on the weekend stating the 'last day' was the 25th) Read more about this offer here.

Last Day for the U.S. Airways up to 100% on buying Dividend Miles

Today is the last day to take advantage of this promotion and since we don't know when Dividend Miles will be integrated into AAdvantage this may be the last time we see this (doubt it but you never know!)

Earn up to 100% Bonus Dividend Miles when you buy or gift Dividend Miles. Full details Until May 25, 14


Buy/Gift Bonus
10,000 - 19,000 Miles 50%
20,000 - 29,000 Miles 75%
30,000 - 50,000 Miles 100%

The promo allows you to buy up to 50,000 miles (so 100,000 in total with the bonus) at 3.5 cents per mile (effective rate is 1.75 cents per mile) plus taxes of $131.25 for total of $1881.25 (1.88 cents per mile). Considering that can get you an International business class ticket with this many miles between that can cost a lot more than that, this is a good deal! We do advise to only purchase however if you know you are going to use to miles soon as it is never good to sit on the miles for a long time due to possible program devaluations that can come at any time. Since US Airways allows 3 day holds on award tickets you can always find the award flights you want before you buy the miles and therefore you don't have dole out a hefty chunk of change just in case you cannot find availability for your preferred award flights.

May 23 Update: Utilizing British Airways for awards flights to the U.S., KLM Africa sale, Airmilesshops 10x bonus

Final update of the week!

News, Tips & Tricks
We got around to updating our popular post How to get select Canada to U.S. award flights faster by utilizing British Airways' Executive Club with the US Airways flights options now that they are a oneworld airline and of course a partner of British Airways. Be sure to read to article to see how you can fly in North America for as little as 9,000 Avios round trip.


In the bonus offers section check out the Virgin Atlantic offer of a 20% bonus on their Miles Booster feature. This is the option that allows you to 'buy' more miles when you fly on Virgin Atlantic. Miles Boosters allows you to essentially double or triple the miles you earn on flight, when you go for the triple miles route you are buying the miles a 1 pence a piece but with this offer you get 20% more which means you are buying the miles at 0.83 pence (about 1.4 US cents / 1.6 CDN cents). Considering the recently launched Flying Club buy miles bonus of also 20% will have miles costing 1.31 pence (2.2 US cents 2.5 CDN Cents) this is a great deal. Add to the fact that Virgin Atlantic is also running the 50% bonus + 2 Tier Points on economy class flights you should really be able to rack up lots of Flying Club miles on your upcoming VS flights! (this is mainly for those of you thinking of using VS's flights out of YVR)

Delta brings Calgary into the mix for its fight in Seattle, nice Aeroplan bonus for Delta stays and more!

News, Tips & Tricks
If you follow our global site, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com you'll know about the fight going on between Alaska Airlines and Delta. Delta has been making a move in the Seattle market adding many more flights, bonusing up those flights and Alaska responded by ramping up flights at Delta's hub in Salt Lake City and also offering lots of bonus mile offers for flying. The good news for consumers for the time being at least, is more flights, cheaper prices and of course bonus miles. The latest news appears that Delta will launch Calgary-Seattle flights this fall as part of this Seattle expansion which means there will be three airlines serving this route, Alaska, Air Canada and Delta. There aren't many details of the flight yet but you could expect a SkyMiles bonus on it when it launches along with WestJet codesharing on the route.(Source: Skyscraper Pages)
