October 3 Update: Podcast Episode 33 is available for download, WestJet adds flights to Mexico City, Amex Cobalt Multipliers

The Rewards Canada Round Up Podcast has returned! Episode 33 is out now for download on Apple iTunes, Google Play, our website and Soundcloud. In this episode we discuss the launch of the American Express Cobalt card, one of the best cards to come out in a long time in the Canadian market and we include interviews with Chef Gordon Ramsay who was the guest of honour at the Cobalt launch event, an interview with David Barnes, American Express Canada's VP of Advertising & Communications.

As an update, last week I let you know that I decided to convert some Diners Club Club Rewards points to British Airways Executive Club to take advantage of a 50% bonus they were running. The transfer was initiated online on the Diners Club website on September 27th and the Avios including the bonus posted on September 30th. Not a bad lag at all for those of you who still have this card and may consider converting in the future.

WestJet announced more new routes today with the introduction of flights from Calgary and Vancouver to Mexico City starting in 2018. The service will be 4x weekly from Calgary and 3x weekly from Vancouver for March and April and then both routes will be bumped to daily service starting on April 29th. (Source WestJet)
