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

Guide to Credit Card Emergency Medical Insurance Coverage

A couple of small updates to our Guide to Credit Card Emergency Medical Insurance Coverage. We have updated the coverage for the HSBC World Elite Mastercard as it now has that excellent coverage for those aged 65 and over. We have also made the table sortable and searchable as well. Check out the feature here.

American Express opens larger Centurion Lounge in Seattle

Seattle Centurion Lounge

Seattle happens to be a popular destination for Canadians and the airport has a new larger American Express Centurion Lounge that opened up this week. The new 14,000 square foot lounge nearly triple the size of the old locations and Canadian American Express Platinum Cardmembers can access this lounge along with two guests at no charge (We are not subject to the new rules for US Amex cardmembers) Click here to learn more about this new lounge.
