December 29 Update: 3,000 bonus points for stays at the newest Marriott ski hotel, more Rewards Canada updates & a new online shopping portal to earn miles

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! 


There is another Marriott hotel stay bonus here in
Canada. This one is for one of their newest hotels that we have featured
on Rewards Canada several times over the past few months. That hotel is
The Josie Hotel, Autograph Collection at Red Mountain
Ski Resort near Rossland B.C.. As a grand opening special they are
offering 3,000 bonus points for stays of 2 or more nights. We checked it
out and it’s one of those offers that borders on being worthwhile or
not. Depending on the days booked the bonus point rate ranged from $10
to well over $20 more per night over the Member Flexible Rate. On those
days where it is only $10 more it might be worth it to go for the points
but on nights where it is $20 or more not so much. Click here for more details & to book this offer.

I’ve been busy updating more pages on the main Rewards Canada site to the new format. Some recently updated pages include:

You’ll notice some of the pages likes Tips & Tricks and Guides
have fewer articles listed right now. That’s due to some of them being
out of date and once they are updated they’ll be added back to
these pages. So be sure to check back frequently or add them to your
bookmarks of pages you like to visit often.

With this switch over I want to thank everyone for their patience in getting our pages updated to the new design. As I mentioned before
there’s 20 years of content that varies from HTML 1.0 to 5.0 that needs
to be moved over so it is a bit of time consuming process!

There’s a new option for earning miles for your online shopping! As
mentioned in a post earlier today, Taiwan’s EVA Air has suddenly made
moves with their Infinity MileageLands program and one of those moves is
offering an online shopping portal. Called the EVA Air Mileage Mall the
newly launched portal is good for shopping in 12 countries including
Canada. The Canadian version of the portal has 46 merchants including
Apple, Microsoft, SSense, Indigo and more. Click here to check out this new online shopping portal (You may need to switch it to Canada in the upper right hand corner)
