April 30 Update: Mastercard pulls Foodora offer from their site, Coast Hotels providing Fort McMurray evacuee discounts and more elite status extensions

We haven't heard back from Mastercard Canada about the Foodora news we brought to you earlier this week but did see that as of today the offer has been pulled from Mastercard Canada's website. You can however still access the offer directly on Foodora's website here. Seeing that it is not on Mastercard Canada's website however leads me to believe this offer is being removed completely and won't be available to use with Foodora in other countries.

Coast Hotels is offering a special 50% off compassion rate at their Edmonton locations for Fort McMurray residents who have been affected by the flooding that city is experiencing. Find out more here.

More elite status extensions
Japan's two major airlines have both provided extensions for elite status. Current elite status members from ANA Mileage Club and JAL Mileage Bank will have their status extended through 2021. Meanwhile Spanish based Melia Hotels has extended the status of current Melia Rewards elite members by one year and elite members of Amtrak Guest Rewards will have their status extended to February 28, 2022. You can find all these details and links on our COVID-19 resource page.
