Jun 3 Update: Scene Visa bonus doubled, Air Canada & WestJet update PED policies, up to 4x Aeroplan Miles for Shangri-La stays

Another full day here at Rewards Canada with Credit Card and Airline news plus lots of new bonus offers!

News, Tips & Tricks
In the world of non travel rewards, The SCENE® VISA card from Scotiabank has had its sign up bonus doubled to 4,000 points (4 free movies) for all accounts opened by October 31, 2014. Find out more here.

Much like the pages we have for some other brands of credit cards we have now made a dedicated page to sign up bonuses for mbna credit cards. You can view it here

In the department of odd redemption options comes this offer from JAL Mileage Bank. It is not for Canadian JAL MB members but it really intrigued me as I haven't seen a redemption like this before so I thought I would pass it along! Feel free to comment with other odd or weird redemption options you've seen before!

WestJet announced yesterday that all Personal Electronic Devices (PED) can be used during all phases of flights including taxi, take off and landing as long as they are in a non-transmitting or flight mode. (Source WestJet). Air Canada instituted the same policy last week on May 28th. This is perfect timing for both airlines as they are both in the process of or will shortly be introducing inflight Wi-fi.

Travel Deals
WestJet has launched a new Summer Seat sale with savings on fares for their flights in Canada and the U.S. You must book by June 4th for travel June 9-25 and July 6-23. Find out more here.
