Earn up to 10,000 Cathay Pacific Asia Miles for Hertz rentals - exact amount depends on how far you drive!


OK so we've seen lots of great bonus offers lately for car rentals (SAS, Iberia, United) and all are based upon the number of days you rent. In fact almost every car rental bonus we have posted in our 15+ year history is based on days, car group size etc. but now we have an offer that we can't ever recall seeing. This bonus is based upon how many miles you drive (and has day/car requirements) That's right, the farther you drive the bigger the bonus you get. No matter what they'll start you off with 2,000 miles. A decent amount of miles even if you only drive 1 mile. Hit 5,000 miles and you'll get 5,000 miles. Hit 10,000 and you'll get 10,000 miles. Drive between 2,000 and 10,000 miles and you'll get that amount of miles as your bonus. Driving 10,000 miles on one rental? Really may only happen if you are doing a long rental to drive all around Europe or perhaps across Australia. Maybe New York to LA and back? I don't think many will get to 10,000 but hey if you are one of those people, good on you!

Offer details
Earn up to 10,000 Asia Miles
when you rent with Hertz for 3 or more days in in USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand or Asia. Full details Book by Jul 31 for rentals until Aug 31, 17 Rentals in Europe must be booked and picked up from 10 May to 25 June 2017.
Bonuses as follows:


Miles Driven Asia Miles Earned
1-1,999 miles 2,000
2,000-10,000 miles 1 per mile driven
(e.g. 5,000 when you drive 5,000 miles)
10,001 miles or above 10,000

May 30 Update: Why you should still consider the SPG Amex, 4x AAdvantage Miles for Choice Hotel stays, Qatar Airways 48hr Sale

News, Tips & Tricks
Quiet day on the news front in the world of rewards in Canada so we thought we'd remind people of one tip  that ties in nicely with our latest Earning Stories on the SPG stay below. That tip is Why you should still consider getting the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. While SPG may only be around for another 12-16 months or possibly less the sign up bonus alone is worth a hefty chunk of change and can be used for some great hotel stays over the next few months. Be sure to check it out. For the Earning Stories stay we mention below we actually used the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa card since it has no foreign exchange fee and earns 5 Marriott Rewards Points per dollar for Starwood stays.

Earning Stories: Starwood Preferred Guest - 45,946 Starpoints for one stay by utilizing several promotions


Welcome to the next post in the Earning Stories series right here on Rewards Canada. For years we have provided you with the details on earning points and miles (both regular earning and bonus opportunities) and these stories show the actual offers in action.

This story revolves around a family vacation to Maui back in February where we had more than just our gang of four travelling so we actually booked a two bedroom suite for the Family Day break. Needless to say since we weren't able to take advantage of our usual booking source for up to 50% off (Maui Hawaii Vacations) we ended up paying a decent amount but as you'll see what we got in return helped subsidize the cost somewhat.

The stay was at the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas and was booked with the idea of taking advantage of several promotions that Starwood was or is offering to offset the higher cost of the rooms then we normally would pay.

The first is an offer they run almost every year and that provides up to 35% off, double Starpoints and 5th night free offer for stay at their hotels in Hawaii and French Polynesia:
Double Starpoints, Up to 35% Off and 5th night free for stays in Hawaii, Tahiti or Bora Bora. Full Details & Online Booking Until Dec 31, 17
When booked there were of course no other promotions available but I had a good feeling the next systemwide bonus would be available soon and it was. The promotion was SPG's Double Take:

This offer provided Double Starpoints on all stays Worldwide. I wasn't 100% sure if we would get double Starpoints from both offers but as I always state you should register for every offer out there even if you may not use it or it may not work for you but just do it just in case. Well seeing that Double Take was provided by SPG and not the hotel (or hotel region like the Hawaii offer) all bonuses posted. Not to mention the elite bonus for being Gold and taking the points as the Gold amenity:

Screen shot of the Starpoints that posted with this stay:


This main SPG offer actually ended back in April but is a good example of taking advantage of each of Starwood's systemwide promotions. However now SPG have launched their next promotion "Take Three' which is live right now and you can take advantage of it for stays over this entire summer:
Earn up to Triple Starpoints for stays of 2 or more consecutive nights at participating Starwood Hotels Worldwide. Weekday stays (Mon-Thu) earn double Starpoints while Weekend stays earn Triple Starpoints. Full details, online registration & booking (Register Online)  Register by Aug 30 for stays May 27 - Sep 4, 17
At the outset of the stay we ended up earning the 13,056 base Starpoints plus 32,890 points from the two bonus offers and the elite status bonuses. 45,000+ Starpoints is a huge amount of points. Yes this was not a cheap stay but by taking advantage of the various bonus offers a lot points were earned that could be calculated as a rebate at nearly C$1,500, of course that is  dependent on what hotel(s) those are redeemed for.

Did you take advantage of Starwood's Double Take, have you used the SPG Hawaii offer before or are you looking to push the limits with the current Take Three offer? We'd love to hear how you have maximized these offers! Leave us a comment below or submit your own earning story to be featured here on Rewards Canada.

Tips for Hotel Stays
- Watch the rates that include bonus miles/points - If there is a bonus most of my stays do earn those extra points but a lot of hotel offers for bonus points also come with higher rates so be sure to check other rates like AAA, Senior Rates, etc. as those could be a better deal than the paying for the extra points. Systemwide bonuses like those provided in this post are typically not associated with higher rates. For a complete list of hotel bonus offers see this page on the main Rewards Canada site.
- Read the fine print - When a bonus offer is available be sure that your stay meets the criteria. Those criteria can include certain rates, select days of the week or multiple night stays.
- If you are staying at a hotel/hotel chain that isn't your primary program chain you may be better off posting that stay to a preferred airline rather than earning the hotel points. You'll still have to join that hotel chains program but set your earning preference to your preferred airline.

Earning Stories: IHG Rewards Club Spring Bonus - 4,832 Points for a negotiated group rate stay


Welcome to the next post in the Earning Stories series right here on Rewards Canada. For years we have provided you with the details on earning points and miles (both regular earning and bonus opportunities) and these stories show the actual offers in action.

This story revolves around another hotel stay for our kids activities. This time for a dance competition we completed a stay at Holiday Inn Express & Suites.

The stay was at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lethbridge and was booked on a group rate provided by our daughter's dance studio. This stay was booked way back before Christmas as the studio only blocked off several rooms at the time and the hotel was the closest and primary one for the dance venue so many studios were booking it. When booked there were of course no promotions available yet for May but as time got closer IHG released the Winter Accelerate offer but that ended mid-April but then they released the Spring Bonus Offer for the one month period from April 16 to May 15:

Knowing that we had only this one stay booked I tried to register for the Stay 2-3K offer and I did successfully register for it and it did pay out for the stay.


This offer actually ended a few weeks ago but is a good example of taking advantage of IHG's systemwide promotions. The Spring Bonus offer was a stop-gap promo IHG ran until they launched the next Accelerate promotion which is live right now and you can take advantage of it for stays over this entire summer:
IHG Rewards Club Accelerate: Earn 500 to 30,000 or more Bonus IHG Rewards Club Points when you complete stays at IHG Hotels Worldwide. Bonus varies by member  Full details, online registration and booking (Registration is required) Until Aug 31, 17

Screen shot of the IHG Rewards Club Points that posted with this stay:



At the outset of the stay we ended up earning the 1,832 base IHG Rewards Club Points plus 3,000 points from the Spring Bonus offer. Not a huge amount of points but still the bonus nearly tripled what we would have earned if there was no bonus. Not to mention we were awarded these points on a negotiated group rate that a lot of times do not earn points so I'll take whatever we can get! The 4,832 points is almost enough points for one free night during the quarterly IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks offers that only cost 5,000 points per night.

Did you take advantage of IHG's Spring Bonus or are you looking to push the limits with the current Accelerate offer? We'd love to hear how you have maximized these offers! Leave us a comment below or submit your own earning story to be featured here on Rewards Canada.

Tips for Hotel Stays
- Watch the rates that include bonus miles/points - If there is a bonus most of my stays do earn those extra points but a lot of hotel offers for bonus points also come with higher rates so be sure to check other rates like AAA, Senior Rates, etc. as those could be a better deal than the paying for the extra points.

May 26 Update: New Nordstrom Rewards Visa from mbna, more lounge access for Amex Platinum cardholders and more!

News, Tips & Tricks
Nordstrom has a big enough presence now in Canada to offer a credit card for their Nordstrom Rewards program. With 5 stores open, one more coming and more than a dozen Nordstrom Rack stores planned the need for extra loyalty to their program is evident. The new Nordstrom Rewards Visa card with MBNA earns two points per dollar spent at Nordstrom and one point per dollar on all other purchases. With 2,000 points equaling $20 at Nordstrom you can see that you get 2% back for the Nordstrom purchases and 1% back everywhere else. You also get a bonus $20 Nordstrom Note when you make your first purchase on the card. We'll be adding this card to our comparison charts soon but from what you can see the card is pretty average unless you shop a lot at Nordstrom to get the 2% back with no annual fee. You can apply for the card here.


Lounge access via the Platinum Card from American Express just keeps getting better everyday! Now holders of the Platinum Card receive free entrance for themselves and up to 2 guests at any of the 3 Escape Airport lounges in the U.S.. These lounges can be found in Minneapolis, Hartford and Oakland. Find out more here.
