August 23 Update: Air France adding Montreal-Guadeloupe flights, save an additional $50 on WestJet flights to Europe & one more Cobalt multiplier location

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.

Air France
is going to offer new flights out of Montreal to their Caribbean territory of Guadeloupe. Flights between Montreal and Pointe-à-Pitre will start
on November 23 and operate twice per week. Flights from Montreal will
operate on Wednesday and Saturday with returning flights operating on
Tuesday and Friday. If you fly on this route before the end of the year
and are buying tickets you’ll automatically earn Double Flying Blue XP
credits. Also seeing that we just had the news that you can convert Amex Membership Rewards points to Flying Blue we checked how many Flying
Blue Miles are needed for this flight and they start at 17,500 miles one
way for Economy and 34,500 for Business Class plus pretty hefty taxes
and fees. This means for a roundtrip economy class flight you would need
46,700 Membership Rewards points. Compare this to Amex Fixed Points for
travel which is 50,000 points but only 25,000 to 35,000 round trip with
Aeroplan in Economy class. So the best bet here with Membership Rewards
points is to go with Aeroplan if you are looking for the best
redemption option. (Source Air France)
