Rewards Canada Daily Update: July 18, 2012

News, Tips & Tricks
Today saw somewhat of an evolution at Rewards Canada as we stepped outside of the Travel Rewards realm to launch a Cash Back Credit Card comparison chart. For some boring reading on why I did so, please visit the Rewards Canada blog otherwise you can go straight to the Cash Back Comparison Chart

SHORT NOTICE BONUS OFFER: Earn up to 30,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for flights between Canada and London. Earn 15,000 bonus miles for flights in Tango Plus or Latitude fare class, 30,000 for Executive Class. The catch is that you have to book by July 19 for travel until Aug 31, 12. So hurry up and book if you know you are heading to London this summer! Full details are here

For bonus offers, there were quite a few nice offers but two should be noted other than the AC offer above. The first are the bonuses that Aegean Miles & Bonus members can earn for flying on Air Canada between Athens or London and Canada. Some of you may not have even heard of Aegean but with this bonus we have officially added the airline to Rewards Canada bonus offers section since Aegean is a Star Alliance member and you can earn Aegean Miles & Bonus miles for Air Canada and any other Star Alliance flights. An interesting tidbit with Aegean Airlines is that their Miles & Bonus program provides the easiest way to achieving Star Alliance Gold Status with a 20,000 tier mile requirement (1,000 of which can be earned for just joining the program). Rather than go into full details check out this detailed thread on for the low down on this short cut to Star Alliance Gold Status. Unfortunatly the bonus miles for these Air Canada flights do not count towards that 20,000 mile requirement. The second offer is Club Carlson's Asia Pacific offer which provides enough bonus points for a low tier free reward night after completing a 2 night stay.
