June 12 Update: Alberta ban on points for prescriptions suspended, great Shangri-La hotels promo, KLM Flash Sale, Air Canada London 120K bonus offer

Primarily a bonus offer day however there is news from the Loyalty Points ban on prescriptions in Alberta

News, Tips & Tricks
Last week the Alberta Superior Court temporarily suspended the proposed ban on loyalty points being issued on prescriptions that was supposed to take effect on June 10th. This means points collectors in Alberta can rejoice and continue earning on prescriptions until at least early 2015 when there will be a judicial review. (Source: Financial Post) Tip of the hat to Randy M once again (the Rewards Canada fan who is fighting hard in B.C. to have their ban removed!)

Air Canada will continue to offer their St. John's to London flights throughout the year rather than just in Summer although it will drop from daily service to three times weekly during the cold winter months. (Source Airlineroute.net)

I was recently interviewed by Airline Miles Experts for our Global site, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com. You can read the interview here and get my take on the differences between the Canadian and U.S. credit card markets.

The best news out today is the announcement of a great Aeroplan promotion for Air Canada flights to London! Read our post here or see the link below in the bonus offers section.

Also out today is a great promotion from Shangri-La Hotels Golden Circle for up to Triple Points and Double Elite Qualifying nights. Granted for most Canadian's you probably don't care but with locations in Vancouver and Toronto plus many other locations Worldwide this is definitely a promo you should look into for your summer travels! See our post on Frequent Flyer Bonuses for more details.
