Sep 10 Update: SPG App to open hotel doors, targeted TD Aeroplan banking offers, Virgin Atlantic Reward Ticket sale

SPG App technology update, lots of new bonuses and more today! All coming from a very snowy YYC where we lost a beautiful tree overnight from the weight of the ice and snow! This happened even with us being diligent and shaking the trees every few hours before going to sleep! To say I am not happy with Mother Nature would be an understatement!

News, Tips & Tricks

Starwood Preferred Guest is rolling out an electronic room key that will open rooms via their SPG App. This is on the heels of Hilton announcing this same technology. SPG is running a pilot program right now and you can visit this link to see if you are eligible to participate. (Thanks to long time Rewards Canada reader Bill W. for passing this along)

Continuing on with our updates on Air Canada's new 787 routes lets us know that the new Dreamliners will ply the Vancouver-Seoul route as of next March.

TD is once again running some targeted Aeroplan offers to acquire new banking customers. The offers seem to be as high as 115,000 miles. To see if you qualify input your Aeroplan number on this page.

Virgin Atlantic has launched a Reward Ticket sale and their soon to end Vancouver route is included. If you have Flying Club miles to spend and are in the Vancouver area you could jump on this flight until October 11th. See more in the bonus offers section.
