July 12 Update: Aeroplan & The Brick partnership launches today, Fairmont Hotels now part of Accor Hotels and more!

News, Tips & Tricks

A few months ago we let you know that Aeroplan was
adding The Brick as a new partner. We are happy to tell you that the partnership officially
launched today:

Members will earn 1 mile for every $2 spend on all
online transactions at thebrick.com. In conjunction with celebrating
the launch of the partnership and The Brick’s 45th anniversary, there
will be monthly Bonus Miles on many categories and products commencing
August 2nd with 5X Bonus Miles on all online furniture purchases and a
special bonus mile offer on select specialty mattresses. (Source: Aeroplan)

The other major news for today is the announcement from Fairmont Hotels that they are now officially part of France’s Accor Hotels.
For the time being, Fairmont’s frequent guest program, President’s Club,
will remain and run separately from Accor’s Le Club accorhotels
program. Phew! That’s good news.  Bad news is that it may not be much longer till we see the end of President’s Club:

Over the coming months we will be working to leverage the AccorHotels platform to enhance your experience with Fairmont. Our goal is to continue to provide and refine the benefits, personalized services and experiences you expect from Fairmont President’s Club. This will include opportunities to discover AccorHotels’ extensive portfolio of properties around the world and access to the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program, which was recently awarded with 5 Freddie Awards – the most prestigious member-generated awards in the travel loyalty industry.  (Source: Fairmont Hotels)
