Feb 19 Update: Targetted WestJet $100 Bonus for Elite Members, Delta on-time baggage offer, multiple stay Accor Hotels bonus

Today is a WestJet day on Rewards Canada:

News, Tips & Tricks
If you took advantage of the WestJet Rewards Status Match offer that ran until the end of January and ended flying on WestJet already you may be getting an email letting you know that WestJet has deposited $100 into your WestJet Rewards accounts. The $100 is meant as a booking incentive as you need to use it on a WestJet booking made by Feb 28th otherwise the $100 will disappear on March 1st. This offer reminds us of those that Melia Mas Rewards have now run for a few years where you click through your link in the email and they deposit 10,000 points in your account but those points need to be redeemed within 24 or 48 hours. Definitely a great marketing tactic to getting you to use the program and for making a booking that more than likely will cost more than $100. (Source FlyerTalk)

Also on the WestJet news front, Air France has expanded their code share routes on WestJet to tie in with their new YVR-CDG flight. Air France flight numbers will now be applied to WestJet routes between Vancouver and Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Winnpeg (Source Now we just need for WestJet to add their code onto the AF YVR-CDG flights (and their other Canadian routes) so that we can start redeeming our WestJet dollars on them!

Delta Airlines has launched a new on-time bag guarantee. Pretty much taking it out of Alaska Airlines playbook, if your baggage doesn't arrive in 20 minutes or less on a U.S. domestic flights they'll award you with 2,500 SkyMiles. The offer only runs until March 31st and is only good for domestic flights so I would assume only those of you flying within the U.S. could perhaps take advantage of this since the flights out of Canada won't count. As to a connecting flight within the U.S. that may be a different story as the terms do state that as long your last leg is on a Delta Airlines flight you'll be eligible. (not Delta Connection or a codeshare). Find out more here.
