June 3 Update: New minimum valuation for Aeroplan points and Marriott adds six more All Inclusive resorts to earn and redeem points at

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 World Elite Mastercard which is currently offering a welcome bonus of up to 70,000 bonus points and no annual fee in the first year! 

We’ve bumped up our valuation of Aeroplan points to
1.5 cents per points from 1.2 cents per point. We have used that 1.2
benchmark for some time now as the lowest value you should get when
redeeming for an economy class ticket. Recently in some of our searches
we are finding any tickets that low anymore. In fact they are running
with much better values so it seems time to boost that rate! We don’t
publish a set chart of valuations but we do use them in a lot of our
calculations on the website and for the value of credit card welcome
offers and earn rates. Learn more about the new Aeroplan program here.

All-Inclusive by Marriott has added six new resorts in Barbados to there ever growing list of locations where you can earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points at. Those six locations are:

  • Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels
  • Tamarind by Elegant Hotels
  • The House by Elegant Hotels
  • Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels
  • Turtle Beach by Elegant Hotels
  • Waves Hotel & Spa by Elegant Hotels

Learn more about these All inclusive resorts here

With American Express running their 30% bonus for transferring points to Marriott it may be the right time to start thinking about future travel to one of these resorts if All-inclusive vacations are your cup of tea!
