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.

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.
