Scene+ changes redemption method for movies at Cineplex & three new Amex Offers out this week

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

sent out an email yesterday notifying members
of a change in the redemption option for movies at Cineplex starting
August 11. They are getting rid of the flat rate redemptions (1,250 to
2,500 points) and moving it inline with most other Scene+ redemptions of
100 points to $1. This will allow members to complete partial
redemptions for movies in effect providing a discount or if you have
enough points you can redeem for the full amount of the movie ticket.

Starting August 11,
2022, Scene+ members will no longer redeem a set number of points per
ticket type. Instead, Scene+ members will be able to redeem 100 points
for $1 towards your movie tickets.*

A quick look at some current ticket pricing shows this will be a
slight devaluation when redeeming for some tickets but might actually
work out better for some other tickets. Click here to learn more about this change.

Three new Amex offers came out this week. I received
all of these on the Platinum Card. There is also an offer that came out
for the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) but that was limited to 1,000
cardmembers so it is likely not available for further registrations.
Here are the three new offers:

Spend at least $75 in qualifying purchases using your registered
Card at participating Pusateri’s location(s) or at
by 02/10/2022 and earn a one-time $15 statement credit. Registration
cap applies. Terms apply.

Get a statement credit equal to 30% of total qualifying purchases of
Slack Pro and Business+ service plans when you use your Registered
Card at by 25/12/2022. Limit of $200 in
total credits. Terms apply.

Get a statement credit equal to 30% of total qualifying purchases
when you use your Registered Card at by 02/01/2023.
Limit of $100 in total credits. Registration cap applies. Terms apply.

Simply log in to your Amex account or go onto the Amex app to see if
these offers have been sent to you and to register for them.

resorts to help its Silver, Gold and Diamond members find deeper

treatment per reservation.
