News, Tips & Tricks

Accor Hotels is enhancing some of the benefits for the elite status levels of its Le Club program. The changes take effect on Oct 10 and include complimentary internet access, late check out/early check in, welcome drink, and lounge access. The benefits afforded depend on your status level. See this list for details:

I received an email from Air Miles which offered a 10x Air Miles Rewards Miles coupon for shopping at Rona this week however when I clicked through to get the coupon it only comes up as 5x the miles. Still better than nothing I guess. Here is a link to the coupon if anyone is shopping at Rona until Oct 1.

The following offer has ended
The $10 Statement Credit for the TrueEarnings Card from Costco and American Express is back

Air China is expanding their code share partnership with Air Canada on select domestic routes out of Vancouver. Could be good for Phoenix Miles members in Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Winnipeg. (Source Airline Route Updates)

Also added today is one of the biggest 'free' miles offer we have seen in awhlle. It came in an email early this morning from Etihad Guest for their Etihad BusinessConnect program. Technically you should have a business and two separate people with Etihad Guest accounts but there are ways around this. As Gary from View from the Wing mentioned, it seems to be very easy to join Etihad's BusinessConnect. I will sign Rewards Canada up and have two employees that can join so legitimately but would love to hear if any of you have success without acutally having a business. See the bonus offers section below for more details.
