April 23 Update: Guide to RBC Royal Bank ‘RBC Offers’, 20 bonus miles via AIR MILES Shops, new airline schedule update section

By now you are most likely familiar with our Guide to Amex Offers
page where we summarize all the limited time offers and provide a guide
on how to access them. We have now set up the feature for RBC in our new
Guide to RBC Royal Bank ‘RBC Offers’. It follows the
exact same format as our Amex guide by listing the current offers
followed by a guide on how to use them.  Check out the feature here. This feature will most definitely need the help of the Rewards Canada
community as we only hold the WestJet card in our household – so if you
have the Avion, BA or Cathay Pacific cards please let us know if you
have any other offers available to you!

American Express has now confirmed the duration of
the increased Use Points for Purchases redemption offer. You have until
September 30 to redeem points for any purchase made on your cards at the
1,000 points for $10 rate. This is instead of the standard 1,000 points
for $7 and is for cards like the American Express Cobalt Card and Gold
Rewards Card. Of course if you have a Platinum Card this has been
doubled so you get $20 for every 1,000 points until July 20. Related: Limited Time Offer: Increased value in American Express Use Points for Purchases

AIR MILES shops has another bonus running until
April 27 for shopping online at any of their partner retailers. You can
receive 20 bonus AIR MILES Reward Miles when you spend $50 or more in
one transaction. Learn more about the offer here.

In the past we’ve let you know about an extra lounge benefit for the Platinum Card from American Express where
you could access Lufthansa business class lounges in Frankfurt and
Munich. This benefit has now been extended to July 31, 2020 – not that
it is of much use to travellers right now but it is good to know should
you be able to travel in the next couple of months. What this tells me
in reality is that it has now been extended several times over the past
few years that in all likelihood it will be extended again after July
31. Learn more here.
