November 23 Update: Scotia credit card updates, Hotels. com Black Friday Double Stamps plus 30% off & an earn and burn loyalty lesson

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, has no foreign transaction fees and no annual fee in the
first year! 

Yesterday was supposed to mark the launch of the new Scene+ program
however technical difficulties behind the scene delayed that. However it
also was the day for updates across the board from Scotia
for their credit cards. All of the Scotia Rewards points earning cards
are now worded as earning Scene+ points and for entire Scotia portfolio
we only see one card with a new increased welcome bonus and that’s the Scotia SCENE Visa Card. That card is now offering 5,000 bonus points as its welcome bonus. Their two most popular points cards, the Scotia Gold American Express Card and Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite card both saw their point offers lowered while the Momentum cash back cards all had their current offers extended. Click here to see all of the Scotia card offers on our site.

 — is offering Double Stamps + up to 30% off
or more with Secret Prices as their Black Friday offer. You can earn
the double stamps for up to five nights which means you could earn
enough stamps for one free night. Book by Nov 29 for stays until Apr 30,
22. Click here to book this offer.

Whether you are new to the points and miles world or have been
collecting for years on end but haven’t done much research into the
programs you collect with I cannot stress enough that the one you thing
you should be doing is looking at both the earning and redemption side
of the programs or as we call it the earn and the burn. I want to
reiterate this as it can end being a very costly endeavour for those
who haven’t taken the time to explore the ins and outs of these
programs. I want to direct you to this post of ours: Clash of the Reward Charts! American Express vs. RBC
just as an example. Sure RBC’s reward chart may look better than Amex’s but that’s only one side of the equation. How do those charts
compare when you look at both sides? It can make a major difference.
Basically what I’m putting out there is why would you spend $28,000
before getting a free flight in North America when you can spend as
little as $8,000? How about $12,000 vs $52,000 for Europe? Click here to learn more
