Aug 25 Update: Targeted Aeroplan Bonus for Air Canada flights, Cathay Pacific Business Class sale, Targeted Hyatt stay bonuses

Rewards Canada is back after a week of vacation where we disconnected, literally. The cabin we rented on Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho had no Internet access and no TV just sunshine, an amusement park, fun watersports and more! Other than a few hits of WiFi at Starbucks in Sandpoint is was really nice to fully disconnect from work and the world of loyalty. Now we are back and there is some news and bonus offers that came out in the last week that we will catch you up on today and throughout the week and of course bring you all the latest news and offers that come out each and every day.

News, Tips & Tricks
American Express is going to give you some more time on their latest offer of earning Aeroplan Distinction status on the AeroplanPlus Gold Card. The offer has now been extended to September 2nd (from August 31). You can apply for the card here

Air Canada sent out some emails last week for an Aeroplan bonus on your next flight. The offers of up to 6,000 bonus miles are targeted to select members but you can try to register to see if it may work for you (no guarantees however!) See the bonus offers section below for more details.

Hyatt is also running a targeted stay bonus with the emails coming out last week. The bonuses are varying, I received the 'up to 6,000 bonus points' offer but some Gold Passport members have received offers where they can earn up to 50,000 points. Once again see the bonus offers section below for details.

Shangri-La Golden Circle has introduced Instant Dining Awards where you can use your GC Award points to pay for your dining at a Shangri-La hotel. 
"From now on, your GC Award Points can be redeemed instantly with 10 GC Award Points covering every USD 1* of your bill. There's no minimum point use and point redemption is as quick as paying the bill would have been. Just show us your GC membership card and we'll take care of the rest."
If you took advantage of the up to 1,200 free points offer last fall that we detailed right here on Rewards Canada and don't think you'll use those points towards a stay this can be a good way to use them at their properties in Toronto and Vancouver (no stay required) Find our more here.

If you still haven't flown on Air Canada's 787 Dreamliner you have another route option to fly on the newest plane in Air Canada's fleet. For a few months this fall the plane will fly between Toronto and Copenhagen three times per week. (Source

British Airways has introduced an option to hold onto a fare for 72 hours for a $10 fee. With that fee BA will hold onto to the tickets for you with the promise that if the fare rises you won't have to pay the higher price and if the fare drops you'll get the lower fare plus you won't lose those seats. If you end up buying the ticket the hold fee is refunded and of course if you don't end up buying you lose the fee. This option is only available for flights being booked at least 21 days in advance. Find our more here.

Travel Deals
Cathay Pacific is offering up to 35% off their Business Class fares for flights between Toronto and Asia. Fares start at $4,723 all in for travel until Feb 28, 2015 that is booked by August 31. Full details.
