Jun 17 Update: AIR MILES introduces Stage Pass, Costco Canada Car Rentals, KLM WOW is Zagreb from $799

Here is your middle of the week update!

News, Tips & Tricks
AIR MILES has launched a new member benefit called Stage Pass which seems somewhat similar to American Express' Front of the Line benefit. According to the landing page, Stage Pass will offer the following:
  • Reserved ticket access Get tickets to some of your favorite artists. Sometimes we'll even have tickets to select sold-out shows.
  • Music is better when you bring a friend Get discounts on tickets and other special offers
  • Special perks at select shows at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.
  • Social media surprises Make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
  • VIP contests and experiences that only your AIR MILES® Collector Card can unlock!
Unlike Front of the Line where you can use cash or points, the AIR MILES Stage Pass benefit only appears to be miles only in terms of payment. For example the One Direction Concert in Winnipeg has a pair of tickets for 2,250 miles. At the time of posting you could also get tickets for One Direction or Kelly Clarkson in various Canadian cities or Ariana Grande in Ottawa or Toronto. Find out more here.

Not sure if this is really new but it is new to me so I'll pass it along. Costco Canada now has a rental car booking site like the U.S. Costco! I haven't tried out the booking engine yet but if the discounts are anything like the U.S. Costco travel services then I would recommend adding this site to your list as the Costco discounts can be significant. I have used the U.S. version on several occasions to save money on rentals. See the site here.
