March 29 Update: Update on Buddy Pass Conversion – not good news for new applicants plus two days left to get your Shangri-La status and to get better cash back value from Scotia

 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.

Update on Buddy Pass conversion:
We have been
notified The Buddy Pass from Air Canada co-brand cards can only be converted to Aeroplan points by April 30th. This means
it is very unlikely any new applicants for the TD card will be able to
get the pass in time to convert. Air Canada likely did this to keep the card from
having an influx of new applicants just to convert the Buddy Pass over
to points. This is an unfortunate turn of events and may affect anyone
who applied for the card since the news broke last week about this
conversion option. We have reached out to Aeroplan about their plans for
those people who did apply over the past few days and how they’ll
handle it as I’m sure there were quite a few people who did apply in hope of getting those extra points and with there being no
indication until today that it would be cut off so soon those new applicants may be PO’d! We’ll be sure
to provide an update as soon as we hear back from Aeroplan. Learn more about the conversion option here.


REMINDER: If you have the Platinum Card from American Express
don’t forget to register for Shangri-La Golden Circle’s Jade Elite
status by March 31st! After that date it will no longer be included as a
benefit. Learn more here

REMINDER: If you collect Scotia Rewards Points
and were thinking of redeeming for Points for Credit (aka Cash Back) do
so by March 31 as the higher levels will be devalued on April 1. Learn more here
