October 5 Update: Thank you for voting, Shangri-La Hotels extends elite status & an amazing business class fare from Toronto to the Maldives

 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 and no annual fee in the first year! 

I want to thank everyone who voted in Canada’s Choice 2021! Voting has now closed. We will tally up the votes over the coming days and you can expect to see the winners announced soon!

Shangri-La Hotels Golden Circle
has, like many other
hotel frequent guest programs, extended elite status of current
members. Members will now keep their status until December 31, 2022. So
while it may have been removed from the Platinum Card from American Express
as a benefit this past March so long as you registered for it before
then you’ll now keep that free status until the end of next year. 


Amex Membership Rewards is once again offering a sale on their American Express Prepaid cards. You can now redeem for these cards at the same rate as the Use Points for Purchases rate of 1,000 points to $10. This discounted offer runs until October 31. Might be a good time
to perhaps redeem for some stocking stuffers seeing that Christmas is right around the corner!

Etihad Airways has a really good business class for their flights out of Toronto.  The highlight here are flights to Male in the Maldives – they are pricing under $3,000 round trip which is an amazing price for this route in Business Class! This sale is available until October 10 for travel until March 31, 2022. Learn more about and book this offer here.

This is something you might want to tie into that new Marriott Category 5 Le Meridien Maldives resort!
