Feb 23 Update: IHG PointBreaks coming on Feb 24, Choice Hotels Stay 2 Get 1 offer returns, Update on targeted WestJet $100 offer

Here is the start of the week news and bonuses for you!

News, Tips & Tricks

IHG Rewards Club's PR team let it's slate of website and bloggers on their mailing list know last night that the next set of IHG PointBreaks will be released on Tuesday Feb 24. From the preview list of 7 hotels, we know at least one Canadian property is participating, the Staybridge Suites West Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Keep an eye out right here on Rewards Canada for the entire list of hotels on 24th!

Choice Hotels has launched their latest systemwide promotion and it is the same one we see over and over again! The offer awards bonus points so that you reach the 8,000 Point level so that you can redeem at over 1,500 of their locations Worldwide, lots of which are here on our home turf. I know there are a lot of our readers who frequent Choice properties here in Canada so I thought it best to highlight it up here in the news and tips. Find out more here!

I had the luxury of speaking with WestJet about the targeted offer that select WestJet Rewards Gold members have been receiving and wanted to clarify who got it and how they got it.
  • Members were strictly targeted based on the Status Match promotion only.
  •  It was not based on having any flight history with WestJet. 
  • Members who earned status the hard way with WestJet weren't targeted. 
  • If you did do status match and didn't receive the offer there is a good chance you didn't opt in for communications from WestJet Rewards when you joined the program so you wouldn't have been on the list. 
  • There isn't anyway you can get the offer after the fact if you opt-in now. So if you didn't get this offer sent to you make sure opt-in for future opportunities and this applies for all reward programs not just WestJet.

Don't forget about our Exclusive Offer with Kaligo offer 2,000 Bonus AAdvantage/MileagePlus Miles or 3,000 Bonus Avios! Almost half of the 50 bonuses are already taken!
