January 18 Update: Amex Centurion to open at New York JFK airport in 2019, AIR MILES permanently raises Cash Miles daily redemption cap and more

American Express will be opening yet another
Centurion Lounge in the U.S.. The latest lounge, which will be the
largest one yet, will be located at New York City’s JFK airport.
Remember as Canadians you do have access to Centurion Lounges around the
globe if you have The Platinum Card from American Express or the ultra exclusive Centurion Card. Read more about the lounge here. For more details on lounge access we suggest reading Rewards Canada’s Guide to Business Class Lounge Access.

“American Express announced it will open its largest location of The
Centurion Lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 4,
one of the most active air terminals in the United States. With
spectacular views of the airfield, exceptional amenities, and
one-of-a-kind design elements, the new lounge will span more than
15,000-square-feet across two levels. The lounge is estimated to open by
early 2019.”

Over the Christmas period AIR MILES temporarily
raised the maximum amount of Cash Miles you could redeem per day. Looks
like that trial was successful as AIR MILES has made this a permanent
feature as of yesterday. (Source AIR MILES)

“the AIR MILES Reward Program is announcing it is increasing the daily
cap for in-store AIR MILES Cash redemptions to $750 (7,125 Cash Miles)
per Collector Account, per day. The cap for in-store AIR MILES Cash
redemptions at Shell remains at $60 (570 Cash Miles) per transaction,
for up to 5 transactions a day. Gift cards and near-cash products will
continue to be excluded.”
