October 2 Update: Alaska Airlines & American Airlines gut partnership, more confirmed American Express Multiplier Locations & get elite status with a paid airline membership


Alaska Airlines and American Airlines are gutting a major portion of their frequent flyer partnership. Effective March 1, 2020 you will not be able to redeem miles from either program for award flights on the other airlines, ie redeeming Mileage Plan miles for flights on American. You will however still be able to earn miles, albeit in a limited fashion, on the other airline's flights. Lounge access for each airline's elite or lounge club members will remain intact as well. Learn more about these changes here.
 What's changing, effective March 1, 2020:
  • You will no longer earn Mileage Plan miles on American Airlines international flights.
  • You will no longer be able to redeem miles for award travel on American Airlines domestic or international flights.
What's not changing:
  • You'll continue to earn a mile for every mile flown on eligible domestic American Airlines flights with an Alaska Airlines (AS) flight number to select key destinations in the Midwest and eastern US and Canada.
  • Alaska Lounge members can still access over 50 Admirals Club lounges worldwide when flying on an Alaska Airlines or American Airlines flight.

We had another good sized update to our Confirmed Cobalt Multipliers resource! We should probably rename it to Confirmed American Express Multiplier seeing that the AIR MILES Platinum Card will soon offer 1 Mile for $5 on Eats & Drinks and the fact the Platinum Card from American Express earns 3x points on dining. This time we give thanks to FM for a big list of Vancouver locations, one Calgary restaurant and some more travel multipliers. Visit the feature here.
Here's what was added:
Chambar (YVR)
Japanese Village (YYC)
Colony Bar (YVR)
Incognito Coffee (YVR)
Noodlebox, Gabi & Jules, Fresh Slice Pizza, Elephant Garden, Ugly Dumpling, True Confections, Kissa Tanto, Grapes and Soda, The Farmer's apprentice (all YVR)
Cathay Pacific
Alaska Airlines
Pinnacle Hotel


Over on our global site, Frequent Flyer Bonuses, we highlighted a paid membership portion of TAP Portugal's Miles&Go called Club TAP Miles&Go. This membership club has you pay an annual fee and in return in you receive bonus miles (redeemable & status) each month plus extra miles on flights (TAP does fly from Toronto) and if you buy the Platinum level you'll receive Silver Elite status which you could then use to try to status match with other airlines.
