August 20 Update: IHG Rewards Fast Track to Elite Status offer & earn 100 bonus AIR MILES when you buy a $150 Sobeys Gift Card

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.


IHG Rewards has extended their Fast Track to Elite
Status promotion. This offer was set to end on August 31 but the
registration period has now been extended to November 30. After you
register for it you will receive Gold Elite Status after only 2 nights
or Platinum Elite Status with only 5 nights. You do have to complete
the nights within 90 days of registering for the offer so do keep that
in mind in terms of timing your stays (ie this may not be an offer to
register for right away like we usually advise). For example you could
wait until November 30 to register to cover any hotel stays you would
have until February 28, 2022. Learn more about and register for this offer here.

Right now you can earn 100 bonus AIR MILES for every
$150 Sobeys Gift Card you buy. That’s like getting a little over $10
back if you use AIR MILES Cash Reward. On top of that you’ll want to pay
for the gift card(s) with a credit card that has a grocery accelerator
like the American Express Cobalt Card (5x points), MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard (5x points) or other Amex cards like The Platinum Card which have limited time accelerators in place (10x points until Sep 23). This offer runs until August 15, 2021
