August 31 Update: Alaska Airlines & Singapore Airlines ink partnership, HSBC Premier World Elite first to offer LoungeKey & 500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles at Fairmont Hotels

News, Tips & Tricks
Yesterday we reported about the upcoming changes to the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard. One unwritten benefit that was of course not mentioned are surprises that WestJet gives to their cardholders. For example in late July many cardholders were all given 20 WestJet dollars just for being opted in to receive WestJet Rewards emails! Something to think about if you are thinking about getting this card or are rethinking keeping it.

More great news coming out of Alaska Airlines and their Mileage Plan program! They have announced a new partnership with Singapore Airlines! The new partnership will see members of each airline's programs be able to earn miles on each others flights starting on September 27th. Redemption in the new frequent flyer partnership will come at a later and you can bet when that happens we'll have indepth coverage of it as this just makes the Mileage Plan program that much stronger!

Thanks to Rewards Canada reader Canadian Rewards for letting us know that the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard is not the first card to have the lounge key access. Looks like the HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard beat the WestJet card to the punch by a week. One could only expect that more World Elite Mastercards in Canada will begin to offer this benefit.
