July 28 Update: First Year Free on Scotia Momentum Infinite extended, Bonus Aeroplan Miles at Costco, 50 Free Avios from Iberia Plus

Playing catch up again after another few days off for a vacation!

News, Tips & Tricks
Be sure to check your email for a targeted offer from Costco that offers bonus Aeroplan miles for purchasing select Kirkland products in-store.

Last week Avianca Brazil officially joined the Star Alliance which means Aeroplan members can now earn and burn miles with this latest airline partner (or any other Star Alliance partner for that matter)

The First Year Free offer on the Scotia Momentum® VISA Infinite* Card has been extended to October 31st. We have reflected this change on our cashback comparison chart.

The 500 AIR MILES Reward Miles bonus for the no fee BMO AIR MILES MasterCard has returned until August 31st. We have reflected this change on the following charts: All Travel Rewards Credit Cards, Most Popular Cards, Travel Points Credit Cards

Alaska Airlines & Hainan Airlines have announced a new partnership. At this point, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can only earn miles on Hainan flights. This is significant news as Hainan serves Toronto and Mileage Plan is a very valuable frequent flyer program with a strong credit card offering in Canada. That being said since you can only earn miles at this point the full strength of Mileage Plan cannot be utilized. However redemption options should be available for Hainan flights late this fall and that is where the partnership will really shine since Mileage Plan allows one way awards on many of their foreign partners and offers those awards at decent mileage rates. They also fly to Seattle which provides a connection option by flying Alaska out of B.C. or Alberta to connect to the Hainan flight. Find out more here.

On the not so good news front more of Air Canada's sun destination routes are being transferred to rouge such as Vancouver-Kona and many Florida routes out of YYZ and YUL. (Source Airlineroute.net)

Looking to fly on WestJet's new 767s and you're not going to Hawaii? (Well new to WestJet as they acquired them from Qantas) They will operate one of their services on Saturdays to Montego Bay from Toronto (Source Airlineroute.net)

In the bonus offers section check out the free Avios offer from Iberia Plus. This is a good way to activate your Iberia account so that you can transfer Avios from British Airways (which has a 25% bonus from Amex right now) and then redeem via Iberia to avoid fuel surcharges.
