January 19 Update: All Chase Marriott Visa cardholders to receive free night award, 20x Shoppers Optimum points tomorrow and a trio of Aeroplan hotel bonuses

We reached out to Marriott for clarification on the Free Night and Elite Status Night credits that will be given to those who have the
soon to end Chase Marriott Premier Visa card.  The clarification we were looking for is who would be getting the nights/credits as some people (my wife included) just got them not too long ago when the card hit the anniversary date late in 2017. The news is great:

All cardholders will be receiving their 2018 Annual Free Night
Certificate and 15 Elite Night Credits regardless of when their
anniversary is in 2018

Marriott wanted to soften the blow by the end of this card and this is a great way for the card to go out. Cheers to Marriott and Chase for doing this with some grace. And stay tuned for some more news tomorrow for Chase cardholders!

Wyndham Hotels announced they are buying La Quinta Hotels.
The U.S. based chain has a very small presence in Canada with only 2
hotels but does have almost 900 hotels in the U.S. and Latin America. Of
note for most Canadian is the La Quinta Returns program will be
absorbed into Wyndham Rewards which means you ‘ll be able to use the
latter to redeem for stays at La Quinta Hotels once the sale is approved
and the programs are integrated.

Receive 100 bonus AIR MILES Reward miles when you spend $50 or more at Rexall today or tomorrow!

Or go shop at Shoppers Drug Mart tomorrow to earn 20X Shoppers Optimum Points
when you spend $50 or more. Remember right now is the time you want to
rack up as many Shoppers Optimum Points as come February 1st your points
will convert to the new PC Optimum program and the more points you have
the more value you’ll get for them. Read more about that here.
