Top 5 Travel Rewards Currencies for Canadians

Here are the details from our press release from today:

Not every travel reward program is created equal. With more than 125 travel reward programs available to Canadians, it is little wonder consumers are left scratching their head when trying to determine which is best. Picking the right program is combination of matching individual needs with value.

To help make it easier, Rewards Canada (rewardscanada.ca) best known for our annual ranking of credit card offerings, has determined the overall value of each travel reward program by evaluating Ease of Earning, Ease of Redeeming and Dollar Value. The full feature with complete rankings and background can be found online at www.rewardscanada.ca/top5trc

The top 5 travel reward currencies are:

America Express Membership Rewards Points. Program cannot be beat for its earn and redemption flexibility

Aeroplan Miles. Has something for everyone but really takes flight when converting miles into business or first class flights

RBC Rewards Points. Must have RBC’s Avion card product to get value but rewards can be up to 2.3% of spend

Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints. Only frequent guest program to make top five but with redemptions values as high as 7% can you say “room service”?

AIR MILES Reward Miles. Canada’s largest frequent shopping program would have ranked higher but recent flight redemption increases knocked it down.

“It’s no secret Canadians rank among the world’s most active travel reward program participants,” said Patrick Sojka, of Rewards Canada. “But determining whether the effort is worth the prize is often an exercise in frustration and worn out calculator keys.”

“This year’s ranking of Canada’s top travel reward currencies attempts to simplify the evaluation process and make it easier to determine a program that’s best for you,” added Sojka.

About RewardsCanada.ca

Launched in 2001, RewardsCanada.ca is regularly featured in the Canadian media and is considered to be Canada’s premier frequent flyer and travel rewards resource. Updated on a daily basis, the website features news, articles, program information and bonus offers for over 80 travel reward programs.

I'd love to hear your comments on the Top 5 Travel Rewards Currencies for Canadians!

Sep 29 Update: New Aeroplan Marriott stay offer, Delta MQM offer for Hilton stays, is Diners Club returning soon?

Welcome to another week of travel and loyalty rewards here on Rewards Canada! Today may be a little quiet but that doesn't say much for the rest of this week! Stay tuned for some major items to be released over the next few days!

News, Tips & Tricks
Good news for SkyMiles and/or SkyTeam flyers in the Vancouver area, Delta Airlines will be flying the Vancoouver-Los Angeles route year round instead of the previously planned Christmas/New Years service only. Flights will operate twice daily. (Source Airlineroute.net)

Marriott Rewards has added Turkish Airlines as their newest airline mileage earning/points transfer partner. You can now earn Miles&Smiles for your stays or convert Marriott Rewards points into Miles&Smiles miles. Find out more here. (Source: LoyaltyLobby)

Gary Leff at View from the Wing points out that Diners Club cards are now available for applications in the U.S however there still isn't any word about the Canadian cards opening for new applications. We have been watching this closely for the past 5 or so years and eagerly await to see what happens for us Canadians as their current offering here with the 'Professional' consumer card would shake up the rankings in our Hybrid card category if they keep the card the way it is (or if they make it better then the shake up will be even more noticable!)

In the bonus offer section, three major promos of note are the Aeroplan Marriott stay offer, the latest set of IHG PointBreaks and the Delta MQM offer from Hilton. Be sure to look into both of these offers!

Bonus Offers

Air Canada / Aeroplan
- Earn up to 4,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you stay at Marriott Hotels Worldwide. More... Until Jan 31, 15

Today's Daily Update has been brought to you by

IHG PointBreaks now live - Award nights for only 5,000 points for stays until Nov 30

Although it recently had some changes made to it, the best hotel redemption offer continues to be IHG Rewards Club's PointBreaks. Once again there are not that many Canadian properties participating and internationally there is only one InterContinental Hotel participating but of course that does not draw away from any of the hotels on the list as this is a good deal for all of them.

The new PointBreaks list we mentioned last Friday are now open for booking for stays from  from September 29 to November 30, 2014 (subject to availability) Each Reward Night at these participating hotels will be only 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points during the above mentioned dates. Remember the new PointBreaks rules that a member can only book up to 2 reward reservations per hotel participating in the individual offer (ie 2 at Pointbreaks hotels and 2 at Last Minute Reward Night hotels).  My tip to get around this would be to book 2 reservations with one IHG Rewards Club account and then have your spouse book 2 more etc. Of course this is dependent on both accounts having enough points to redeem for these awards. Also be sure to book these ASAP as once the allotted nights are booked at certain locations those hotels will fall off the list.

There are only 3 hotels in Canada and 161 other hotels participating in this set of PointBreaks and they are as follows:

Sep 25 Update: The easiest route to Star Alliance Gold comes to an end, Air Miles Jiffy Lube bonus

Big bad news from Aegean Airlines Miles&Bonus!

News, Tips & Tricks

We have touched upon this topic a few times here on Rewards Canada but never fully detailed it. What is it? The easiest way to Star Alliance Gold Status via Aegean Airlines Miles&Bonus. It is was quite simple earn 1,000 miles for joining, earn another 3,000 with 12 months and get their Silver Status (Star Alliance Gold) add another 16,000 on top of that within 12 months of reaching Silver and boom you have Gold Miles&Bonus status which equates to Star Alliance Gold and you could keep that status just with one flight credited to Aegean every 3 years.. Rumours had starting going around last week that this was all about to change and the email from Aegean Miles&Bonus yesterday confirmed it. This easy way to keeping Star Alliance Gold status for life has come to an end. Well not really yet, the changes go into effect on November 24th so you could still potentially take advantage of this with one long haul Business Class flight credited to Miles&Bonus.

I myself started this challenge earlier this year but took a harder way, crediting some Air Canada domestic flights to Miles&Bonus, I got Miles&Bonus Silver already but don't know if I'll make it to Gold by the time the changes take place. I'm not happy about neither are thousands of others who have used this surefire method as a fast track to Star Alliance status but that is also the reason why this great method is coming to an end. As with most fast tracks, tricks and other ways to work the frequent traveller system, many of them meet their end sooner or later. Now they have made the qualification requirements harder but they are still not that hard to achieve when you compare to some other programs and if you achieve that status it is relatively easy to retain (especially if flying on Aegean or Olympic, somewhat harder if only flying Star Alliance.) You can find out all about the changes here.

American Airlines and El Al are ending their frequent flyer partnership on November 1st of this year. Find out more here.

Tunisia's Syphax Airlines is converting their Montreal-Tunis service from year round to seasonal as of Oct 30. If you have travel booked with Syphax this fall/winter you should check with them to see how they will accomodate your planned flights. (Source Airlineroute.net)
