January 21 Update: How to maximize the elite status benefits from The Platinum Card from American Express & get your 2nd night free for stays in Quebec City

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! 


Another major feature on the main Rewards Canada site received a makeover
and update this week. That feature is How to maximize the elite status benefits
from The Platinum Card from American Express
This is our piece showing how you can take the elite status benefits
that you get with the card and extend those elite statuses to even more
hotel, car rental and even cruise loyalty programs. The number of
statuses has actually gone down one since our last update as currently
Wyndham Rewards has put their status match offer on pause. Click here to check out this feature.


Thanks to long time Rewards Canada reader André M. for alerting us to the return of the Quebec City tourism offer
of receiving your second hotel night free. The previous offer ended
just before Christmas and now as of January 14th it is back. This offer
is valid for stays until March 4 (last check in March 3). The great news
with the Quebec City offer is that you book direct with the hotels
which means you can earn your specific hotel chain’s loyalty points,
avail of elite status benefits and more. Click here for more details
