May 28 Update: Air China to launch Montreal-Beijing service, Rocketmiles 5k Miles booking bonus, 100% bonus on buying Hilton HHonors Points

A much later in the day update for you!

News, Tips & Tricks

Air China opened up reservations for their newest
Canadian route, Montreal-Beijing! The flight will operate 3 times weekly
and being a Star Alliance member provides yet another great option for
Aeroplan members in Eastern Canada to get to China as Air China is one
of the airlines that you can avoid high carrier surcharges on (See our feature on Avoiding Fuel Surcharges)
A the time of writing this however we couldn’t find these Air China
flights on Aeroplan’s booking engine so you may have to call in to
Aeroplan to see if they can get seats. Chances are online availability
should start showing up within a few days. (Source Be sure to also check out our Air China Phoenix Miles bonus miles page for earning offers if you choose the Phoenix Miles program over Aeroplan.

Rocketmiles has a short term first time booking
bonus of a minimum 5,000 miles awarded in the Rocketmiles program of
your choice. Stays must be booked by May 30th. Find out more here.

Doctor of Credit reports that TD Bank has
taken over the Nordstrom credit card portfolio in the U.S.. Could this
mean there will be a Nordstrom Rewards Credit Card in Canada soon seeing
that Nordstrom now has two Canadian locations and more opening up soon?
We’ll just have to wait and see! Nordstrom runs two programs in the
U.S. currently, Nordstrom Rewards which is their credit card based
program and Debut Rewards which is a straight up loyalty program that is
only available in Texas right now. So if TD decides to launch a credit
card here I’m going to wager a guess it will be for Nordstrum Rewards
not Nordstrum Debut Rewards.

In the bonus offers section check out the 100% bonus on buying Hilton
points. Normally it costs US$10 for every 1,000 points but with
the bonus it brings it down to US$5 per 1,000 or 5 cents per point. This
is an offer where it can be totally worth it to buy the points for
hotel stays as you can you pull out value of 8 cents or more on certain
redemptions (check out Loyatly Travelers
evaluation here!).

The second contest for the 10th Anniversary of our global site is now on! You could win 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points. Find out more here.
