January 21 Update: Double Accor ALL Rewards points for stays in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Panama, Rewards Canada Podcast now on YouTube & Budget extends Fastbreak status?!?

 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. This update is brought to you by the HSBC +Rewards Mastercard which
is currently offering a welcome bonus of up to 30,000 bonus points, no
annual fee in the first year and a low 11.9% interest rate! 

On January 11th we provided details on the next iteration of
Fairmont’s Stay Close offer where you can get your second night free on
stays at select Fairmont Hotels and in that post we also gave details on
how you could earn Triple ALL Rewards points on those stays if you
booked by Janaury 15. Now we can tell if you missed the triple points
you can stil get a bonus as ALL Accor Live Limitless launched a new
bonus today offering Double ALL Rewards Points on all stays that are
booked by March 31 for completion by June 30. Sure Double Points doesn’t
match the Triple we had before but it’s better than no bonus at all!
What you need to do is simply register for the offer here first and then book your Fairmont Stay Close stay here. If you already have a stay booked simply register and you’ll be all set.

You can now find the Rewards Canada podcast on our
YouTube channel! We added the last two episodes this week to the channel
and will have every episode going forward added as well. While famous
for videos the amount of people that use YouTube as a source to listen
to music and podcasts is growing exponentially and we wanted to give our
readers, well listeners, the option to listen to our podcasts via this
method. This way if you don’t use Apple Podcasts, Spotify etc. you can
go to YouTube to listen. Be sure to subscribe to the channel
and turn on notifications to be alerted to any new content added to the
Rewards Canada YouTube channel and hit the like button as much as you

This was an interesting email I received today – Budget Rent a Car
sent out a notice that they are extending my Fastbreak status another
year regardless of 2020 rental activity. What is confusing to me is
Fastbreak is free to join and doesn’t have any requirements to achieve
other than signing up for it – so how can they be extending the status
when there isn’t status? I don’t know maybe I missed something here. Let
me know if I did and am not understanding this completely.
