December 7 Update: Amex Cobalt Confirmed Multiplier Locations (help us build the list), Alaska Airlines & Air France KLM part ways, IHG Accelerate Returns

Alright Cobalters! We need your help! Rewards Canada reader Hossam M. asked if there is a published list of merchants where you can earn the 5x (10x for this month) multiplier with the American Express Cobalt card. We know that Amex doesn't publish one so based on Hossam's question we created a page to track the locations where you can earn the 5x, 2x and 1x points. We need your help to populate the charts! Simply comment and let us know who the merchant was, where the merchant was located and what the multiplier was and we'll add it to the charts and keep it going as a master list! You can access the article and chart here.


Thought of the day - on our global site we have saying that asks "Are you bonusing?" - well I think here in Canada we should be asking "Are you Cobalting?" especially with this 10x multiplier!

Bad news from Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, their partnership with Air France KLM is coming to an end on April 30, 2018. Seeing that AF KLM have a pretty big presence in Canada this is definitely a blow to Mileage Plan members here. Although availability was sparce on AF KLM from Mileage Plan it was an optoin I know some of you used or were planning on using. Overall though there are lots of other great options to use Mileage Plan miles on especially airlines like Cathay Pacific, Qantas, LAN and more. If you want to redeem on AF KLM you can use Flying Blue, Delta SkyMiles (or virtually any other SkyTeam airline) and of course the newest option WestJet Rewards. (Source Alaska Airlines)


We're going to keep this reminder going in each update until Christmas:
Check out the Give A Mile Flight Hero campaign! The charity can really use donations of miles to help provide flights to those who otherwise would be unable to travel to visit terminally ill or critically sick family and friends. Rewards Canada has pledged to raise 100,000 miles and we are half way there! We are putting the call out to all of our fans, readers and even new visitors, if you can give please do so. It can be as little as 1,000 miles! You can find out more and donate here.
