September 7 Update: 30,000 Asia Miles for RBC Cathay Pacific Visa is back, WestJet seat sale and tons of Miles & More miles for hotel stays

News, Tips & Tricks
The 30,000 Asia Miles sign up bonus for the RBC Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum card has been brought back after less than two months from when it last ended. Apply for an RBC Cathay Pacific Visa card and you'll get 15,000 Asia Miles when your application is accepted. On top of that, apply before October 31, 2016 and receive an additional 15,000 Asia Miles if you spend $7,500 CAD in the first three months using your car. Find out more here.

Air Canada is bringing back a direct non-stop route between Vancouver and Dallas. This is great news for Star Alliance fans and Aeroplan members! The daily flights will launch on February 5th and will be operated with an Air Canada Express CRJ-705. (Source Air Canada)

Lucky over at One Mile at a Time posted about updates to the Marriott International app where it mentions three programs (Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG!) and has the following wording: Link your Marriott Rewards account to your SPG account. So it appears the first step in integration for the Reward programs is here. While the wording is there, you still can't link your accounts but we are all guessing that will come soon. What will the linking provide? We also don't know that but it could lead to potential elite benefit reciprocity and more between the programs when you stay at hotels of the other brand.

In the bonus offers section check out the two new hotel bonuses for Miles & More members. Triple miles for Hilton stays which is decent but what is amazing is the 7x miles for Best Western stays! That's 3,500 miles per stay.
