November 26 Update: Marriott cards will earn 5x points with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection & Black Friday deals galore!


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! 

A few weeks back we brought you the details of the new Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection joining Marriott Bonvoy (read about that here). At that time it was announced that Marriott co-branded cards will earn accelerated points for the cruise purchases but details weren't revealed as to whether that was just for U.S. cards or if Canadian Cards were included. Also not revealed at the time was what the accelerated earn rate may be. We posed the question to Amex Canada and received the following good news response:

Confirming that Ritz-Carlton Yachts cruise line is a Marriott property, therefore Canadian Cardmembers would be awarded the accelerated points of 5x on Marriott properties.

That means if you have the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card or the Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card you'll earn the same amount of points per dollar spent as you would staying at any Marriott hotel. And with the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection being an ultra-luxurious cruise line with cruises running in the range US$3,000 to $6,000USD or more per person you would earn a boatload of points on those purchases if you paid with one those two cards! Two people on a Transatlantic cruise at US$6,900pp would earn well over 80,000 points.


Today is Black Friday so that means even more travel and shopping deals have been revealed today. We keep adding them to our Black Friday / Cyber Monday / Holiday 2021 Deals page so be sure to check it frequently as it being updated every hour or so!
