October 15 Update: Check out the AIR MILES Carousel of Dreams in Toronto this weekend and don’t forget to earn miles & points for shopping online from the U.S.

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 100,000 bonus points worth $500 and no annual fee in the first year! 

If you are in Toronto today and tomorrow and can make it down to
Yonge-Dundas Square (1 Dundas St E) go check
out the AIR MILES Carousel of Dreams! To celebrate the
revamping of the program this 40ft long luggage carousel that offers
major rewards and prizes from top brands. The event is open for AIR
MILES collectors and AIR MILES & Onyx credit cardholders. Prizes
from top brands and AIR MILES Partners like BMO, Sobeys, Shell, Metro,
Samsung, Smeg and many more, are all up for grabs on the Carousel of
Dreams, as well as free flights from travel partners Air Canada,
WestJet, Porter, and Delta. Featuring a 40-foot luggage carousel, the
event reinforces AIR MILES’ commitment to providing collectors with more
redemption benefits, more ways to earn, and more opportunities to take
part in promotions.

Time sure seems to be flying by as we are already back into the
Christmas shopping season! This is just a reminder that even as
Canadians we can earn points and miles via U.S. and other non-Canadian
online shopping malls when you shop at retailers outside of Canada.
What reminded me to remind you is that yesterday I made a purchase with
Anthropologie for some Christmas gifts. Now, Anthropologie is a
partner with AIR MILES Shops and the Aeroplan eStore but they are also
partnered with most U.S. airlines so I chose to use Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan.
I almost forgot to do this as I had everything ready to check out so I
actually closed the browser tab with Anthropologie, went to Mileage Plan
Shopping, logged in and clicked on Anthropologie and voila everything
was there in my cart and I completed the order! I knew it was successful
as Mileage Plan shopping sent me an email within a couple of hours
saying the purchase was being tracked! Also, the items I ordered were
not available for shipping to Canada so I am having them shipped to
Stackry which has now become our U.S. forwarder of choice as they are
super fast to turn packages around and have them sent out.

We’ve added another airline to the bonus offers section on our global site FFB. Vietnam’s Bamboo Airways Bamboo Club is now being tracked. You can visit that bonus offers page here.
As they don’t fly to Canada (just yet) and don’t have any significant
partners here they will not be added to the Rewards Canada bonus offers
