February 18 Update: CIBC Aventura NEXUS credit upped to $100?, WestJet cuts four more Canadian cities and an update to the Marriott buy points bonus

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! 

I’m not entirely sure when this happened but I noticed yesterday that CIBC may have bumped up their NEXUS benefit on their Aventura cards
to C$100 from the previous $50. Even our last update direct from CIBC at the
start of February had it listed as $50 so if this is really the case it
is nice welcome change to the Aventura cards. I will check with CIBC however as there is some confusing
wording on CIBC’s website as some pages state a $50 credit in
their messaging while others don’t and then the terms and conditions state $50 and/or $100.  If it has been bumped up I’m guessing
it was done in response to TD offering a $100 NEXUS credit on their Aeroplan cards as those are the only other cards in our market that offer this benefit.

announced more domestic route cuts today
that sees them stopping service to four more cities in Canada. Those
cities are St. John’s, London, ON, Lloydminster and Medicine Hat. The
routes will be temporarily discontinued from March 19 to June 24.

A quick update to yesterday’s post on the new Marriott Bonvoy
buy points offers. It looks like there are two offers available that
vary member to member. We received a 40% offer but others are reporting a
50% bonus. If you get the latter the offer becomes much more
worthwhile. You can check to see which offer you are targeted for here.
