December 7 Update: Amex Cobalt Confirmed Multiplier Locations (help us build the list), Alaska Airlines & Air France KLM part ways, IHG Accelerate Returns

Alright Cobalters! We need your help! Rewards Canada reader Hossam M.
asked if there is a published list of merchants where you can earn the
5x (10x for this month) multiplier with the American Express Cobalt
card. We know that Amex doesn’t publish one so based on Hossam’s
question we created a page to track the locations where you can earn the
5x, 2x and 1x points. We need your help to populate the charts! Simply
comment and let us know who the merchant was, where the merchant was
located and what the multiplier was and we’ll add it to the charts and
keep it going as a master list! You can access the article and chart here.

Thought of the day – on our global site we have saying that asks “Are
you bonusing?” – well I think here in Canada we should be asking “Are
you Cobalting?” especially with this 10x multiplier!

Bad news from Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, their
partnership with Air France KLM is coming to an end on April 30, 2018.
Seeing that AF KLM have a pretty big presence in Canada this is
definitely a blow to Mileage Plan members here. Although availability
was sparce on AF KLM from Mileage Plan it was an optoin I know some of
you used or were planning on using. Overall though there are lots of
other great options to use Mileage Plan miles on especially airlines
like Cathay Pacific, Qantas, LAN and more. If you want to redeem on AF
KLM you can use Flying Blue, Delta SkyMiles (or virtually any other
SkyTeam airline) and of course the newest option WestJet Rewards.

We’re going to keep this reminder going in each update until Christmas:

Check out the Give A Mile Flight Hero campaign! The
charity can really use donations of miles to help provide flights to
those who otherwise would be unable to travel to visit terminally ill or
critically sick family and friends. Rewards Canada has pledged to raise
100,000 miles and we are half way there! We are putting the call out to
all of our fans, readers and even new visitors, if you can give please
do so. It can be as little as 1,000 miles! You can find out more and donate here.
