May 27 Update: Rewards Canada now on Flipboard, Clarifications to new Cobalt terms, IHG’s latest PointBreaks to be released tomorrow

Rewards Canada is now on Flipboard! You can now get all of our blog posts with all your other news and events via this social news aggregator and app! Here is the link to our magazine:

Last week we mentioned that there were some terms and conditions updates to the American Express Cobalt card. We now have further details right from American Express to clarify the questions:

Confirming that Cardmembers may continue to earn points on cash
equivalent purchases, but Amex is entitled to claw back the points if we
believe there is abuse of the Membership Rewards program.

As for insurances, Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption are not
being added to the Cobalt Card. The notice covered all changes
happening to insurance coverages, regardless of the card.

The latest version of IHG Rewards Club‘s famed
PointBreaks redemption offers will be revealed tomorrow. They are
typically released around 12pm ET. You can read our post from the last
set to get acquainted with them if you aren’t familiar with PointBreaks.

Check your emails for a targeted Cathay Pacific Asia Miles offer for double miles when flying Cathay Pacific in first or business class from Canada or the U.S.

If you have been considering the Marriott Bonvoy Card from American Express I would apply for it TODAY.
