RBC Offers adds two more promotions that provide discounts for Herschel and H&R Block


The RBC Offers program has added two new promotions and extended another over this past week to bring the complete list to 26 offers.

Be sure to login to your RBC account right away to load these offers (if required) or get the promo codes if required. Personally I received these offers on the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard but most if not all should also available for RBC's most popular card the RBC Avion Visa Infinite Card and most other RBC cards.

Flair Airlines offering a 100% discount on their base fares for travel in February (Must book by Jan 27)


 
Thanks to Davidd418 for alerting us to this pretty awesome seat sale from Flair Airlines. Their Free Base Fare in February sale is just that - the base fare is free, you simply pay the taxes and fees (and any add ons like baggage). The sale is good for any Flair destinations and the flights must be booked by January 27 (or while seats last) for travel in February. As David pointed out to us there are some flights that are available for as little as $14 round trip.

Earn 1,000 bonus points + Double Elite Night Credit per night for stays at Marriott Hotels in Canada & Worldwide

 
Marriott officially unveiled their next global systemwide promotion today and it’s a pretty good one. The offer provides 1,000 bonus Bonvoy points and double elite night credit per night stayed at Marriott Hotels across Canada and Worldwide. The promotional stay period is February 8 to May 4 but you can register for the offer and book your stays now. You must register prior to your stays to be able to earn the bonus and registration is only open until April 20. I like that you can get the bonus on a single night (compared to Hyatt’s offer where you need to complete two nights) and that there is an elite earning component (Both Hyatt and Hilton’s offers are non-elite qualifying).

HSBC introduces a new no fee credit card - the HSBC Travel Rewards Mastercard



HSBC is expanding their credit card portfolio for the everyday Canadian with the launch of the HSBC Travel Rewards Mastercard®. We say everyday Canadian as up until a few years ago most of their credit card offerings were limited to HSBC customers or those with high net worth. That changed when they launched the awesome travel rewards HSBC World Elite Mastercard and then followed it up with the low interest rewards card the HSBC +Rewards Mastercard. As of this week they have now added a third card that is open to anyone applying for it and it also marks the bank's entrance into the no fee rewards card space.
