45,000 point offer on the Scotia Gold American Express ending early, Oman Air will join the oneworld Alliance & Novotel Hotels celebrates the LIGHTYEAR Movie

Here’s your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your near daily dose of
loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more.

We have been advised that the current welcome bonus offer on the Scotiabank Gold American Express card
will now end on June 29 instead of July 4. The offer provides a bonus
of up to 45,000 Scene+ points. At this point in time we have not yet
been told what the new offer will be as of June 30. However with the
revamp of the Platinum Card and the Red Amex cards from Scotia happening
in June we feel there will be a focus on those card rather than the
Gold so if I was to guess I would say the offer on the Gold will either
remain the same or be lowered. But remember that’s just a guess on my
part. Click here to learn more about Scotiagold American Express Card offer.




Last year Oman Air announced their intention to join
oneworld and news came out today making that official. The airline
announced they will join the alliance by 2024 as Qatar Airways has
sponsored their membership. Even though airline does not fly to Canada
it is good news for Canadians as you’ll have more options to earn and
redeem points if you do fly on Oman Air (They do fly to London). Right
now the airline is partnered with Air Canada’s Aeroplan so you can earn
and redeem for Oman Air flights and then once the airline joins oneworld
you will be able to do the same with two other programs popular for
Canadians, British Airways Executive Club and Alaska Airlines Mileage
Plan. Click here to learn more about this announcement.

This past weekend saw the release of Disney Pixar’s LIGHTYEAR movie
and to celebrate it Accor Hotels’ Novotel brand has a special activities
for families staying at their hotels. There are 5 Novotels to choose
from in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto that you can book your stays at and
be immersed in the movie during that stay:

Participating Novotel locations will feature a series of
out-of-this-world activities for visiting families. Upon arrival, kids
will be surprised with an assortment of LIGHTYEAR coloring
cards, games, stickers and upon request, a star projector that will
transform their guest room into an incredible, otherworldly space. Each
family member will receive their very own boarding pass inviting them to
embark on a family mission, suit up as Buzz using an exclusive Snapchat
Lens, or pose with a digital Buzz in the lobby via an augmented reality
photoshoot scene.

On social media, fans will also have a chance to win an
out-of-this-world Novotel family stay in London (travel included) with
amazing space-related activities, such as a chat with a real-life
astronaut, an interior skydiving session, and rocket building. Select
Novotel destinations will also invite members of ALL – Accor Live Limitless to
redeem their Rewards Points for a family stay featuring space-themed
activities, and will also offer guests a chance to attend a private
screening of LIGHTYEAR.
