January 14 Update: Negative COVID-19 test result required prior to flying to the U.S., earn double points for Coast Hotel stays & much more

Here’s your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your daily dose (or near
daily dose) of loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses,
deals and more.


The United States has become the latest country that will require a
Negative PCR test prior to boarding a flight that will land in the U.S.
The requirement will take effect on January 26. All passengers must
provide proof of a negative viral test taken within 3 days of their
flight to the U.S.. If you have flights booked to the U.S. after the
26th make sure you are able to get tested properly within the required
time period. And remember you have to do the same upon returning to
Canada. (Source CDC)

And to that light if you happen to be flying American Airlines they are the first U.S. airline to introduce a health passport that should make things a little easier

Airlines is the first U.S. airline to introduce an easy way to provide
results from a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test and other completed
documents required for international travel into the United States. The
VeriFLY app, a mobile health passport that helps customers understand
and verify their travel requirements, will be available for travelers
starting Saturday, Jan. 23, for travel from all international
destinations. American is expanding access to the app in support of the
U.S. government’s requirement that all passengers 2 years of age and
older traveling to the United States from any international location
test negative for COVID-19 within three calendar days of departure.
