May 2 Update: IHG Rewards Club Stay X Get Y bonuses return, CIBC introduces Aerogold Visa Infinite Privilege, Triple Aeroplan Miles with Delta & Coast Hotels

The week comes to a close with the return of the famous IHG Stay X Get Y bonus offers!

News, Tips & Tricks
You can earn up to 10x the Air Miles at Rona until May 7th with this coupon. The offer is for 4x the Air Miles is you just use your Air Miles Card, 10x if you pay with a Rona card.

The IHG Rewards Club 'Stay X Get Y' bonuses have returned for the Summer! Although they are not called "Stay X Get Y" as that was a moniker given to them by the frequent traveller community, the "Reel Summer" promotion as it is called is just that. Technically these are targeted promotion codes but IHG keeps them very loosely targeted as most if not all members should be able to register for one of the offers. The list was compiled from the Flyer Talk thread discussing these promo codes. Definitely partake in these offers if you can!

CIBC let me know that the CIBC Aerogold Visa Infinite card has had it's insurance benefits updated (finally after many years of being weaker in that category!) to match many of its competitors and of course it's brethren card from TD. The card will now include purchase protection and extended warranty benefits (although this does not show on the CIBC website yet)

Also from CIBC is the second Visa Infinite Privilege card in the market, the CIBC Aerogold Visa Infinite Privilege card which matches the TD version of the card. Same sign up bonus, same benefits on Air Canada (Priority Boarding, Priority Check In - which if you fly certain routes will be a lot of people, I swear on my latest YYZ-YYC flight more than half the plane had priority boariding!) Find out more here. The card will be added to our comparison charts over the next few days. (Thanks to loyal RC reader Bernard for the heads up!)

  1. It's funny you say that "I swear on my latest YYZ-YYC flight more than half the plane had priority boarding!". Try LGA-YYZ where my experience is that all but maybe 1 or 2 people get up when they call for priority boarding. It is crazy!
