Hilton Honors members can to save up to 25% on stays across the entire Asia Pacific region when you book by February 2, 2019. The offer for non-members is only up to 15% off so it really makes sense to join Honors to get the additional discount seeing that it costs nothing to join the program.

Stays must be booked by February 2, 2019 for stays until September 30,  2019. Remember that you should also be earning up to Triple Points on these stays with the current fall Hilton Honors promotion that runs until January 3 and from January 4th you can earn 2,000 bonus points per with the Points Unlimited promotion. Find these and all other Honors bonus point promotions here.

Discount varies from 5% to 25% off Flexible Rate (BAR) or Breakfast Included Rate (B&B) across all participating properties. Hilton Honors members will receive an additional 10% discount for bookings outside of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

December 20 Update: SPG Amex will have 15 elite night credit added early in 2019, United adding Toronto-San Francisco flights & more!


Earlier this year when the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express underwent some changes due to the complete integration of SPG and Marriott Rewards into one program it was noted in a letter from Amex that the card would soon offer qualifying night credits. When it was first announced it wasn't stated how many nights but at that time we assumed it would probably be 15 just like the extinct Chase Marriott Premier Visa card offered. Well there is now confirmation that the card will offer those 15 nights starting sometime early in the New Year and it will be an annual benefit. (Source Reddit)

United Airlines will be adding new service between Toronto and San Francisco. The flights that start on March 31, 2019 will operate twice daily and offer good connection times to United's Asia and South Pacific flights. Of course their Star Alliance partner Air Canada also serves the route and additions are always good for looking for routes to redeem miles for from Aeroplan, MileagePlus or other Star Alliance programs.

Earn 100% Bonus Aeroplan miles for flights booked today and tomorrow. Good for travel Jan 9 - Apr 3, 2019


Air Canada has come out with an early Boxing Day offer of 100% bonus Aeroplan Miles (double miles) on all eligible flights that are booked today and tomorrow. The offer is good for flights flown between January 9 and April 3, 2019. Once again the terms state only the first person on a reservation gets the bonus (come on Air Canada, that's the worst term and condition possible, even worse than the New Bookings only that we see with all their promotions) so if you are booking for more than one person you'll either forego the miles for the rest of the people on your reservation or have everyone book their own flights.

Find out more about this offer here.

Terms of this offer:
  • You must be an Aeroplan Member. If you are not an Aeroplan Member, you can visit the Aeroplan website (www.aeroplan.comExternal site which may not meet accessibility guidelines.) and enroll today. Membership is free.
  • 100% Bonus Aeroplan Miles for eligible flights flown will be awarded for new bookings only made between December 21 and 22, 2018, by 19:59 Eastern Time inclusively, for travel on eligible flights between January 9, 2019, and April 3, 2019.
  • To qualify as new, the booking must have been created for the first time during the eligible promotional period with a new reference number. Any booking made prior to the start of the promotion that is subsequently changed to include travel dates within the qualifying travel period will not be considered a new booking that is eligible for the promotion.
  • The Bonus Aeroplan Miles for this offer will only be credited to the first passenger with their Aeroplan Number listed (appended) on the reservation. Should this passenger cancel his/her flights, the Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be awarded to the next passenger with their Aeroplan Number listed, which is now the first listed on the reservation.
  • Only valid on eligible scheduled direct flights within Canada, from Canada to the U.S. and from Canada to sun destinations operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Express® and Air Canada Rouge®, for travel between January 9, 2019, and April 3, 2019.
  • To qualify for the 100% Bonus Aeroplan Miles, the eligible round trips or two one-way segments must be travelled in the following eligible fare options:
  • 100% Bonus Aeroplan Miles  Economy Standard; Economy Flex; comfort; Economy Latitude; Premium Economy lowest; Premium Economy flexible, Premium Rouge; Business Class lowest; Business Class flexible.
  • For example, for itineraries booked in an Economy Flex fare option, 100% of the bonus mileage will be assessed for every two segments. When booking an Economy Flex fare option and travelling from Vancouver (YVR) to Toronto (YYZ), basic mile accumulation amounts to 2,078 Aeroplan Miles per segment, for a total of 4,156 Aeroplan Miles per round trip. Based on the 100% Aeroplan Miles promotion, a member would earn an additional 4,156 Bonus Aeroplan Miles, which is based on the accrual percentage when purchasing an Economy Flex fare. For more information regarding earning Aeroplan Miles, please click hereExternal site which may not meet accessibility guidelines..
  • 100% Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be applied exclusively towards miles earned based on the distance flown as per the fare mileage accrual rule. The class of service bonus miles and miles earned in conjunction with Altitude® Bonus Select Privileges are excluded. 
  • To be eligible to receive the Bonus Aeroplan Miles, you must provide your Aeroplan Number when completing your purchase.
  • A minimum of one round trip or two one-way segments is required to earn and qualify for the 100% Bonus Aeroplan Miles promotion.
  • Valid on published fares and Flight Passes that are eligible for Aeroplan Mile accumulation. Offer is not valid when travelling on an Air Canada Unlimited Flight Pass.
  • Not valid on published fares that do not allow for Aeroplan Mile accumulation.
  • Bonus Aeroplan Miles are not Altitude Qualifying Miles and do not count towards Air Canada AltitudeTM status.
  • Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be credited up to three weeks after the qualifying flights are completed.
  • Upgraded flight segments (eUpgrades, Last-Minute Paid Upgrades, Star Alliance® Upgrade Awards, etc.) will be tracked for this promotion based on the eligibility of the original fare purchased. 
  • Aeroplan Flight Rewards are not eligible for mileage accumulation.
  • Bonus Aeroplan Miles cannot be sold and are non-transferable. They have no cash value and cannot be converted to cash or refunded if unused.
  • Offer is subject to change at Air Canada’s sole discretion without notice; other conditions and restrictions may apply.

Air Canada opens new Maple Leaf Lounge at St. John's International Airport


Air Canada opened a new Maple Leaf Lounge at St. John's International Airport yesterday. The new lounge is larger than the lounge it replaced with a capacity bump of 77%. The new lounge can now accommodate up to 84 people at a time. It is located in the newly expanded departures area of St. John's terminal and it provides views of Signal Hill and the ocean. This is the third Maple Leaf lounge that Air Canada has opened this year.
The space features a self-serve bar, offering a wide selection of beverages, including Canadian wines and Lavazza specialty coffees, a selection of light snacks, a business centre and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac. Business travellers planning to work on site may also take advantage of a cyber counter equipped with PCs and colour printing, complimentary Wi-Fi and access to more than 7,000 digital newspaper and magazine content via the PressReader app.


Here are some key points about the new lounge provided by Air Canada:

  • Only lounge available at YYT and 3rd Maple Leaf Lounge unveiled this year, offering premium travellers more comfort
  • Just steps from Air Canada's gates in the recently expanded departures area of the terminal building
  • Air Canada is the only carrier operating year-round international flights to London-Heathrow from St. John's

And some photos of the new lounge (courtesy of Air Canada)







Here's our call out to the Rewards Canada community! If any of you are travelling through St. John's in the near future and can access the lounge we'd love to have to do a review of the lounge (and we'll pay you for it too!) If you are interested please contact us info@rewardscanada.ca.

Meet the Collectors: Frequent traveller retires, learn how he and his wife fund their travels now!

 Today we bring you our latest Meet the Collectors feature. These are interviews with our readers, who are everyday Canadians like you, on what they are doing with their loyalty programs.



What happens when you have been a frequent traveller for the better part of your life thanks to your work and then retire from that career that saw you globetrotting? You look for other ways to earn those points and miles and that's what Rewards Canada reader Jim Marchbank describes for us.

I am a retired CEO of a cultural organization. I have been an Aeroplan member since 1987 and a Hilton Honors member for about 20 years.  When I was working I undertook a lot of business travel and flew Star Alliance most frequently and stayed mostly in Hilton properties.  I was a Diamond member of HH for many years and an Air Canada Super Elite member for almost 15 years.

Upon retirement I realized my substantial Aeroplan and Honors balances would deplete and, with only leisure travel, would eventually disappear.  Until then I had never churned a credit card.

Continue reading the interview here!

December 18 Update: Air Italy launching Toronto-Milan flights, InterContinental Ambassador enhancements & Word of Hyatt changes for 2019




Air Italy (nee Meridiana) has announced that they will start flying between Canada and Italy. The airline will fly between Toronto and Milan starting on May 6th. The 4x weekly service will be operated with an Airbus A330. The loyalty program for the airlines is still Meridiana Club, whose currency is Avios (same as Iberia/BA) however you cannot move the Avios in this program to/from the others like you can between BA and Iberia. Toronto falls into their Zone/Area 7 for redemptions which requires 30,000 Avios one way for Economy or 60,000 Avios one way for Business Class. (Source Routesonline)



InterContinental Hotel's Ambassador Elite program is getting an update for 2019. This is the program that is separate from IHG Rewards Club although one of the new benefits does tie the two programs together. These are the changes to Ambassador and you'll see the connection is the automatic Platinum Status in IHG Rewards Club. Find out more here.
• Platinum Elite status in IHG® Rewards Club
• Up to USD20 restaurants & bars credit for every stay***
• Ambassador Benefits Guarantee to ensure you make the most out of every stay
• E-delivery of complimentary weekend night certificate
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS FOR STAYS IN GREATER CHINA ONLY:
• One complimentary breakfast every night you stay
• 15% discount on restaurants and bars

World of Hyatt has also announced some further changes to their program for 2019. If you hold WoH Globalist status you are going to lose the lower re-qualification threshold of 55 nights versus 60 nights if you didn't have the status. Now all members will have to complete 60 nights to qualify or re-qualify for Globalist status. Then as of March 1st the program is adding Milestone Rewards to the program that reward you sooner and more frequently based on milestones you hit as you travel. Find out more here.

Here is a sampling of some those additional rewards being added:

Summary of global hotel systemwide bonus points promotions - December Edition

One of the easiest ways to rack up lots of hotel points is to take advantage of the systemwide bonuses that come from many of the big chain programs and also from the lesser known programs. In fact, right now it should be rare for you NOT to earn a bonus. Unless you are staying at a boutique hotel or perhaps an independent hotel most other hotels out there have a bonus. So take advantage of it! These systemwide bonuses simply require you to register beforehand and they do not affect hotel pricing as long as you book a point eligible rate which are most rates out there. Of course booking through a third party site like Expedia or Rocketmiles does not count as most chains only award points on bookings that are made directly with them.  Without further ado here are all the current promotions that are available to everyone:

BMO Rewards® Business Mastercard® - First Year Free, 35,000 bonus points and $100 Travel Credit (up to $470 value)


Yesterday BMO came out with some refreshed offers on two of their cards. The first is on the personal BMO World Elite Mastercard which we mentioned on our social media where the current sign up bonus of first year free and 35,000 bonus points remains but they have added in a $100 travel credit as well. We have this up on our main BMO page and blog post for the personal card will follow soon!

The second offer which we are covering here is an updated promotion for the BMO Rewards® Business Mastercard® . This is essentially the business version of the World Elite Mastercard minus some travel benefits (business class lounge access etc.) but it also now offers a $100 travel credit on top of the first year free and the 35,000 points sign up bonus. Right now this is one of the stronger business card welcome offers in the market. That means with this offer you are inline to score about $470 in value strictly for spending on the card. Remember though if you do plan on cancelling the card before you have to pay the annual fee in 12 months you'll want to use up your points beforehand.

A reminder here is how the points earn and burn format works with BMO Rewards® Business Mastercard® :
  • 140 points = $1 of travel booked via BMO Rewards (Old rate was 100 points = $1)
  • Earn 3 points per eligible dollar spent on gas, office supplies and cell phone/internet bill payments - giving a 2.14% return on those purchases.
  • All other spending will continue to earns 1.5 points per dollar - giving a 1.07% return on those purchases
Here are the details of the current offer for this card:

New WestJet video with Gerry Dee takes a stab at Air Canada and Aeroplan

Earlier this month WestJet Rewards released a video collaboration with Canadian comedian Gerry Dee about the uncertainty of airline travel reward programs:

While not specifically implied, you can tell they are taking a stab at Air Canada and Aeroplan and what is going to happen to the program come 2020. We all know Air Canada has bought Aeroplan from Aimia (while not entirely complete the deal should go through) and many people are wondering what is going to happen once Aeroplan gets folded into the new Air Canada loyalty program. Will there be a devaluation? Where will we be able to earn miles? How will you be able to redeem and so on. With that sentiment WestJet see these as an opportunity to promote the WestJet Rewards program.

A blank orange loyalty card - we all know what program uses that colour!

What do you think of the WestJet Rewards video with Gerry Dee?

Save up to 25% on Hilton stays in the Asia Pacific Region!


Hilton released one of their biggest APAC sales today to close out the year! Honors members will be able to save up to 25% on stays across the entire region when you book by February 2, 2019. The offer for non-members is only up to 15% off so it really makes sense to join Honors to get the additional discount seeing that it costs nothing to join the program.

Stays must be booked by February 2, 2019 for stays until September 30,  2019. Remember that you should also be earning up to Triple Points on these stays with the current fall Hilton Honors promotion that runs until January 3. Find that and all other Honors bonuses here.

Discount varies from 5% to 25% off Flexible Rate (BAR) or Breakfast Included Rate (B&B) across all participating properties. Hilton Honors members will receive an additional 10% discount for bookings outside of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

Earn 10X Aeroplan Miles for Amazon.ca purchases until December 30!

https://www.aeroplan.com/estore/prodAmazon.html

Starting today and running until December 30, all eligible Amazon.ca purchases made via the Aeroplan eStore will earn 10x the miles! The regular earn rate is 1 mile per dollar so that means you will earn 10 Aeroplan Miles per dollar. This is even better than the Black Friday offer of 5x miles (read our related post on how many miles were earned during that promotion!) This bonus is perfect for those last minute gifts that you may need to get for Christmas! If you have Prime you can most likely even be ordering as late as this coming Thursday to get those gifts under the tree.

Offer details
10x Aeroplan Miles on all eligible Amazon.ca purchases made via the Aeroplan eStore. Full details. Until Dec 30, 18

And remember that right now you can earn 10x points at Amazon as well by using the American Express Cobalt Card from the 17th to the 19th. You can then convert the American Express Membership Rewards Select points to Aeroplan via Marriott, which equates to a minimum of 4 Aeroplan miles per dollar spent on the Cobalt card from December 17 to 19. So if you make your Amazon.ca purchases via the Aeroplan eStore and pay for it on your Cobalt card you should be earning a minimum of 14 Aeroplan Miles per dollar for  the first $1,000 spent!

December 14 Update: 20X PC Optimum Points at SDM tomorrow, 20X AIR MILES for Apple.ca purchases and the Amex Toronto Pearson Duty Free offer returns!

You can earn 20x PC Optimum Points on purchases of $100 or more at Shoppers Drug Mart tomorrow. Find out more here.

Check your email for another exclusive American Express offer. From Friday, December 14, 2018 to Monday, January 14, 2019, when you spend $200 (CAD) or more using your registered American Express Card at a participating Duty Free store at Toronto Pearson International Airport below you can earn a $50 (CAD) statement credit.

It's the season of giving! Help support Rewards Canada's Flight Here campaign for Give A Mile. Help us reach 100,000 miles to provide up to 4 flights of compassion. Find out more here!
