November 3 Update: American AAdvantage slashes earning on British Airways & Iberia, new credit card offers, bonuses and more!

The start of the month means lots of news, bonuses, new credit card offers and more!

News, Tips & Tricks
Even though we technically took yesterday and the weekend off we still posted about some new credit card sign up offers and the return, albeit smaller, of the RBC Rewards to British Airways transfer bonus. You can find all that news in the Posts since our last update section!

If you credit British Airways or Iberia flights to American AAdvantage be prepared to earn less miles in 2016! As of February 1st there will be new AAdvantage mileage earning rates for flying on these two airlines and unless you are flying in Business Class, First Class or full fare premium economy you are going to earn less miles. The biggest hits are to the lower end of the economy class spectrum of course with Discount Economy going to 50% miles from 100% and Deep Discount dropping to 25% from 100%!! Find out more about the British Airways changes here and Iberia changes here. (Source One Mile at a Time)

Starwood Preferred Guest has launched member's only pricing (up to a 10% discount) for bookings made via Starwood. The discount is interesting and may be worthwhile for those who are not CAA/AAA members. If you are a CAA/AAA member you should be able to get a better discount with more favourable cancellation terms. Find out more here.

Croatia Airlines has expanded their code sharing with Air Canada. You will now find Croatia Airlines flight numbers on many of AC's transatlantic routes. Croatia Airlines is a Miles & More member airline (Lufthansa's Frequent Flyer Program) Since they are a Miles & More airline, Croatia Airlines does not have their own page on Rewards Canada as you can find all Miles & More offers on our M&M page.
