Nice to see more news and bonuses in our daily update!

News, Tips & Tricks

I want to thank everyone way down East who tuned in and called or emailed their questions for my appearance on CBC Maritime Noon. The
45 minutes went by quickly and I was told there were many calls and
emails that they just weren’t able to get to. So feel free to email them
us! Simply visit our contact page to submit your questions.

Thanks to Rewards Canada reader Stephen H for forwarding the details of the return of the Grand Cru BMO World Elite MasterCard
offer. Looks like have really tighten their grip on it this time round
as I’m guessing a lot of non-Grand Cru supporters applied for this
amazing deal the last time it was offered. This time you have to attend
the Grand Cru event/auction next week (Oct 29/30) to be able to apply
for the card. If you are going to the event make sure you do apply for
it! You get a 40,000 point sign up bonus (instead of 30,000) and the
first THREE YEARS with no annual fee (that saves $450!!) Find out more about this offer here.

Many times over the past
few years we have brought you details about buying Avianca LifeMiles and
how you can use them for Star Alliance flights. Good news from that
program today as they have reduced the miles required (how often do we
see that happen!!) for award flights in Business Class or First Class
between North America and Brazil (like Air Canada’s flights) and between
Brazil and Europe in all fare classes. (Source LoyaltyLobby)
