October 17 Update: Amex Platinum Card access to Lufthansa lounges in Munich, Scotia card updates for November + more!

If you read some of the U.S. frequent flyer and rewards blogs you may
have seen articles about American Express Platinum Cardmembers having
access to Lufthansa lounges in Munich. When those articles came out it
wasn’t sure if Canadian cards also qualified, well the good news is they
do! As long as you are flying with the Lufthansa Group you can have access to four
lounges in Munich. The Business lounges are if you are flying in Economy or Business Class
and you have access to the Senator lounges if you are flying in
Business Class. This is a limited extension of lounge benefits for
Platinum Cardmembers that runs until May 31, 18.

Here is a screen shot from The
Platinum Card from American Express
lounge finder on American Express’ Canadian site:

Excerpt from the T&C’s

Platinum Card Members have complimentary access to Lufthansa Business
Lounges (regardless of ticket class) and Lufthansa Senator Lounges (when
flying business class) in the Satellite area of T2 in Munich Airport
from 9/15/2017 until 5/31/2018. To access the Lufthansa lounges,
Platinum Card Member must present a government issued I.D., a same-day
boarding pass showing confirmed reservation on a Lufthansa Group flight
(Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian airlines) and a valid Platinum Card.

Many of Scotiabank‘s offers for their cards are to come to a wrap on the 31st and what we can say is that you’ll want to grab the Scotiabank Gold American Express card now as the new offer, while still quite good won’t be as lucrative as it is now and if you were considering the Scotiabank Momentum Visa Infinite card we’d hold off on getting it until November 1 as it will have a much stronger sign up offer. Finally grab yourself the SCENE Visa card if that has been under consideration as it will have not as good of sign up bonus come November.

WestJet announced today that they will offer winter seasonal service between Hamilton and Las Vegas. The twice weekly service will launch on December 29. (Source WestJet)
