WestJet 787 Dreamliner

RWRDS Daily Update – February 13

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

The Ultimate WestJet Credit Card Portfolio

Rewards Canada’s Ultimate WestJet Credit Card Portfolio has been updated. This update is pretty significant as we see a change in the primary Visa card. The RBC Avion Visa Infinite Card has been replaced with the RBC ION+ Visa Card. The ION+ provides much better everyday earn rates with a lower annual fee and with the same conversion rate to WestJet as the Avion cards it makes more sense to have this card as the Visa front runner. Check out the updated portfolio here.

A Hanger event – PMB Meetup is coming to Calgary, YYC!

Our good friend Anshul from Points Miles and Bling is bring his PMB Meetup to Calgary with a great location to host it at. If you are not familiar with Anshul’s PMB Meetups they are an event for enthusiasts to attend and discuss everything related points, miles and travel. From beginners to experts it is “A unique opportunity for attendees to network, and explore a niche activity from the world of aviation.” The event is being held at YYC’s The Hanger Flight Museum which is our local aviation museum filled with some amazing restored aircraft from Canada’s storied aviation past.
