December 28 Update: Receive a $100 Visa Card each night you stay in Kingston, 20% off gift cards via RBC Rewards & Canada Jetlines takes delivery of their 1st plane

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! 

Looks like we might have a challenger to the famous StayVancouver
promotions that awards Amex gift cards for each night you stay at hotels
booked through them. While we have seen many tourism boards provide
gift card/prepaid card offers most of them outside of the StayVancouver
offer are limited to one card regardless of how many nights you stay.
Well it looks like Tourism Kingston wants to challenge
StayVancouver as their latest incentive provides a $100 Visa Gift PER
NIGHT not per stay when you book at least 2 nights and they award it for
up to 5 nights for $500 in total gift cards.  

Looks like there are 15 or
so hotels participating and the awesome thing about Kingston’s offer is
that you book direct with the hotels which means you can earn points,
receive your elite status benefits and more.  Also note the VISA gift cards are geo-restricted to Kingston and can only be used at businesses registered and based in Kingston that accept VISA. Click here to check out the offer.

We received a press release yesterday from Canada Jetlines announcing
the delivery of their first Airbus A320 aircraft! So it looks like this
airline that has been in the works for many years is finally coming to
fruition. It does appear they are moving away from the Ultra Low Cost
Carrier model and focusing on being a charter airline serving sun
destinations in the U.S., Caribbean and Mexico. The first flight is
slated for spring 2022 out of Toronto. In all likelihood they will not
have their own frequent flyer program but you should have no problem
utilizing points from proprietary credit card reward programs for
flights on Canada Jetlines (at least those program that let you do your
own bookings) Learn more here.
