Jan 27 Update: 100 Free Hyatt Gold Passport points, IHG PointBreaks released, Voila Hotel Rewards Facebook contest

The last Monday of January proves to be one filled with lots of news and bonuses!

News, Tips & Tricks

The Rewards Canada crystal ball is telling us that next week an exciting loyalty program/hotel booking partnership will launch that will be of interest to Canadians. It is also telling us of another new travel rewards credit card launching in March. As always stay tuned right here on the Rewards Canada blog and/or or our Twitter/Facebook feeds for all the details!


Congrats to Phil and Bale who won the two Air Canada OnBoard vouchers we were giving aways. As before thanks to our reader Leo G. for donating them!

Voila Hotel Rewards
is running a contest for liking them on Facebook. Grand prize is 250,000 VHR Points and there are weekly prizes of 10,000 points. Enter here.

IHG Rewards Club
will in fact offer free Internet to all their members Worldwide as of this July. As we previously reported the terms of the offer stated that only Elite status members would get free Internet in Europe but that will change this July as the offer is expanded to all IHG Rewards Club members.

There is small but free Hyatt Gold Passport points offer that has been making the blogosphere rounds since last week but we wanted to test it first to make sure it works as it is supposed to be targeted. Good news is the points posted for us so go ahead and try for yourselves! The offer is slated to end on Feb 15 but I would jump on it sooner than later as once these go viral they tend to be pulled early. See our bonus offer section below for the details.

  1. Is the new credit card referenced here the now launched Amex cashback (which is not technically travel reward?) or is something new on the horizon. I'm still waiting to see if Amex is making good on launching a premium AP credit card.

  2. Yes it was the relaunch of the Amex Gold Cashback. We thought it would the new AP card from them but that one is still behind closed curtains (they are being very tight lipped about it right now!)
