Sep 18 Highlight: Canada.com Travel Site of the Week, 2x Dividend Miles on all US Airways flights and more!

News, Tips & Tricks
Next week is going to see the launch of one of the new travel reward credit cards that I previously hinted at. The launch party is on Monday the 24th and unfortunately I cannot attend but hopefully I'll have the details on the card at the same time so the Canadian's masses can find out about this card that is being highly touted as a big points earner!

I was pleasantly surprised to see Rewards Canada as Canada.com's travel website of the week last week and the author made some interesting notes in particular about my 'News' and 'Articles' section. He correctly states that most of them do end up here on the blog so you might as well just follow the blog. I'll be the first to admit that I have done a terrible job of keeping up on the 'Articles' portion of Rewards Canada. I guess time constraints with all the other features, charts, bonuses etc. on Rewards Canada has kept me from writing proper articles and focusing more on quick posts on the blog. I would like to know if you, my readers, find or could find value in an updated articles section or are you fine with the way things are run with most of the 'article' type stories being simply posted here on the blog. Let me know by commenting below!

Some American Express cardmembers including myself have been receiving targeted offers for referring friends to American Express. One of my readers, Randy received an offer of 15,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for referring friends or family to an AeroplanPlus card while I received an offer of 10,000 Bonus Membership Rewards points for a Gold Rewards Card referral. If anyone is interested in my referral you will actually get 20,000 Membership Rewards points if you spend $500 in the first three months (that sign up bonus is 5,000 more than the regular offering for the card and the highest offering yet for this card). If you are interested please send me an email at info@rewardscanada.ca. If you are looking to be referred or you received an email to refer people feel free to comment in my post on the referral bonuses

Watch for some travel rewards articles to come out soon in Metro Toronto, Halifax Soar and the Ottawa Citizen as I recently completed some interviews for them.
