Two new airlines were added to the Rewards Canada bonus offers section today! We are now tracking bonus offers for Sun Country Rewards
(https://rewardscanada.ca/suncountry.html) who announced today that they are finally going ahead with their
Vancouver to Minneapolis/St. Paul service. This route was originally set
to launch in May 2020 but due to the pandemic that never happened. The
Sun Country flights will being on June 15 and operate twice weekly.

The other airline is Italy’s ITA Airways (https://rewardscanada.ca/ita.html). This is
the successor to the now defunct Alitalia which flew its last flight on
October 14. While ITA Airways doesn’t fly to Canada just yet it will
most likelty do so within a few years. With that said there are bonus
offers to be had from the programs as follows:

You can earn Double Sun Country Rewards points on the new Vancouver
to Minneapolis/St. Paul flights if you book by November 2 for travel
starting June 15, 2022. Learn more about the offer here.

One way flights from Vancouver to Minneapolis are pricing at US$150 on the first day:

Meanwhile, you may not be able to fly on ITA Airways out
of Canada but if your travels do take you to Italy before the end of
the year and you need some flights internally or within Europe you can
join their Volare program and earn 10,000 bonus points on the first flight you
take with them. Register for the program here.

 ITA Airways also has a status match program in place
however they are not matching to any Canadian airline programs at this
time. If you hold status with any one of a number of U.S., European,
Asian or South American programs you may be able to have your status
matched. Learn more here.
