Mar 4 Update: WestJet offers new Fare Bundles, Last day to book SPG Awards at old rates, Aeroplan sign up bonus

Welcome to another week here on Rewards Canada! As always watch for a whole bunch of program news, travel deals and of course bonus offers over the course of the week. I should also have a post coming to you about a topic that has been in my head for years and I am finally writing about it, it won't be a huge post but one that should interest most of you. Biggest news over the weekend was the WestJet launch of a new web booking engine and remember today is the last day to book SPG awards at the old rates. In the bonus offers check out the extension of the Aeroplan sign up/first flight bonus, I doubt many of you can take advantage of it but who knows maybe one of you reading this is not an Aeroplan member yet.

News, Tips & Tricks

WestJet has introduced a new online booking engine that has a new fare bundle (pricing/ticketing structure) for their flights, multi city options and more. I found this while checking out Hawaii flights yesterday and see that WestJet's VP of Communications posted it to FlyerTalk on Saturday. The new fare bundles are as followed and it is assumed that the highest fare category will be their 'Premium Economy' fare as it offers access to the first three rows where WestJet is installing their Premium Economy seating.

Just a reminder that today is the last day to book Starwood Preferred Guest Award Nights before the 2013 category changes and also the last day to book Cash+Points at the old rates!
