January 14 Update: Amex Platinum AIR MILES now coding correctly for Tim Hortons reloads, Amex Centurion & Escape Lounge open in Phoenix, StayVancouver Visa Reward Card offer


Thanks to Rewards Canada reader Harry B. for alerting us to an issue he encountered with his American Express Platinum AIR MILES Credit Card. The card as many of you know underwent some changes last November (read about them here) and one was the enhanced earning of 1 AIR MILE Reward Mile per $5 spend on eats and drinks. He noticed that when he went to reload his Tim Hortons card online those transactions were not being awarded the 1 mile per $5 but rather the base earn rate. He had no luck with Amex customer service so he reached out to us to let us know. We reached out to our Amex contacts and are happy to report that American Express has fixed this issue:
(we) have now made the necessary updates to ensure Amex Platinum Air Miles Cardmembers will receive 1 AM for every $5 made at Tim Hortons, whether it’s online or in store.


Last week saw the newest American Express Centurion Lounge open up in Phoenix. This lounge is in Terminal 4 where both Air Canada and WestJet fly out of so this is great news for the whole slew of Canadians who escape to the PHX area! We'll be travelling their later this year and will provide a review (as long there is space in the lounge as they are extremely popular and tend to get crowded. For those who don't have a Platinum Card or Centurion Card there is also a brand new Escape Lounge right next to the Centurion Lounge which can be accessed with both of these cards or by paying an one time entry fee. Learn more about the Centurion lounge here and the Escape Lounge here.

Not sure if I missed this earlier (I believe I did as I remember seeing something about it) but an email from Sandman Hotels let us know that the StayVancouver Visa Gift Card promotion is on right now. When you book a hotel via StayVancouver with the promo code VISA you will get a $75 to $125 Visa reward card for the first night and a $50 card for each additional night. This promotion runs until April 30. Find out more here.
