June 12 Update: Starbucks Rewards Stars can expire, contest for 60K IHG Rewards Club Points & targeted Air Canada flight offer for up to 200% bonus AP miles

Looking to boost your IHG Rewards Club balance? You may just be able to if you enter Money We Have's contest for a chance to win 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points. Very fitting for our readers! Simply go to Barry's site and comment on what your Canadian Bucket List travel destination is!

On our feature of "Expiry and Inactivity Rules of Canadian Loyalty Programs" Rewards Canada reader Harry B. let us know that as of April 1st Starbucks Rewards Stars will expire. We looked deeper into Ontario's legislation for the banning of expiring of loyalty points and yes there is a clause that if a program has no one reward option with a value of $50 or more they can expire their currency. Since Starbucks Stars can only be redeemed at 125 for a single drink or food item they have no reward option over $50 hence they can expire them. Use them up if you've been hoarding them. In reality, Starbucks is a reward program where hoarding is really necessary due to speed they can be earned and ease of redeeming. Personally I do hold onto to them for a bit of time, not long, but when I buy food items I redeem for them since it is a better return than redeeming for a drink. For example their new power bowls run over $8 and are a great item to use your free drink/food reward for!

Check your email for the latest targeted Air Canada flight offer - or use the link below in our bonus offers section and input your Aeroplan number to see if you are eligible to earn up to 200% bonus Aeroplan miles for premium class flights on select routes worldwide. Of course our next Air Canada flight is included and we're flying business class but it was booked before the promotion came out and as we all know all flight offers from AC/Aeroplan only count for new bookings. Darn that rule!

Typically by this time of each month we have posted the latest Miles & More bargain award ticket offers but this month there are not any for departures from Canada! Check back next month!
