February 1 Update: PC Optimum first day fail, WestJet Link delayed, new Embassy Suites open at YYZ

Today is the big day of the PC Plus – Shoppers Optimum merger.
However with so many millions of members it looks like there are issues
happening on the IT side of things. I tried setting up my new account
and keep getting errors when trying to link my Shoppers Optimum card
both online and via the new app.  A major fail on their part for the first day of the new PC Optimum program. Not a good way to kick things off. How are things working for all of you? Were you able to link your accounts before the site went down today?

Read our post on the merger here.

WestJet’s new regional service, WestJet Link which is provided by
Pacific Coastal Airlines has been delayed until June 20th. Anyone with
bookings prior to that will be contacted by WestJet to get a refund or
find alternative travel. If you are booked on any of these flights I
would call in rather than wait to be contacted to make sure your travel
plans don’t get disrupted any further. (Source WestJet)
