Aug 29 Update: Amex Air Miles Platinum sign up bonus increased, VIA Rail Preference Bonuses, Fall Best Western promo released is our last update for August!

News, Tips & Tricks
Two of the American Express Air Miles cards were updated today. The American Express Air Miles Platinum has had its sign up bonus increased to 1,500 miles while the Air Miles Reserve has dropped from 2,500 to 1,700. Both cards still have the same spend requirements to earn those bonuses. Of course the Air Miles Platinum comes first year free so those 1,500 Miles are essentially 'free miles' as long as you use the card on spend that you were going to complete anyways. See the bonus offer section for more details.

The latest set of Air France KLM Flying Blue Promo Awards are out but once again there are no offerings from Canada. Their are options out of Detroit and New York which are possibilites for those of you in Ontario/Quebec. You could drive to Detroit or fly to NYC on a 9,000 Avios British Airways Executive Club ticket (see here for more details on that latter option)
