July 29 Update: Loyalty Points ban on Prescriptions in B.C. struck down and 8 new bonus mile/point offers

We're back to a full week of travel rewards and loyalty program coverage here on Rewards Canada!

News, Tips & Tricks
Over the past year or so we have been bringing you updates in regards to the issue surrounding the ban of loyalty points on prescriptions in Alberta and B.C.. Currently the Alberta ban is on hold until an upcoming court date but that could all be affected by last Friday's court ruling in B.C.. That ruling came out and it is great news for us points collectors as:
Chief Justice Erik Hinkson found the only proven harm of the ban was on consumers, prevented from obtaining pharmacy services and prescriptions at the lowest price.
Which means the ban has been struck down and should be lifted soon if it has not been already. (Source CBC)
