RWRDS Daily Update – February 9

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

RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card Review

Another new credit card review posted onto Rewards Canada today! This time it is the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card that receives the Rewards Canada review treatment. This is somewhat of a niche card that doesn’t really get a lot of attention but really is a great option for that said niche of British Airways flyers! Click here to see what we think of the card.

IHG One Rewards Buy Points Bonus

IHG One Rewards has brought out another buy points bonus. The bonus varies by member, personally I received an offer for 80% extra however others are receiving offers for 100%. At 100% it can be worth it to buy IHG points to top off for an award. Click here to buy IHG One Rewards Points

WestJet to end flights to Dawson Creek

Most of the focus on WestJet’s route cuts over the past few months have been from Eastern Canada but now we see a route cut in Western Canada. The WestJet Link flights from Calgary to Dawson Creek are being cut as of February 26. (Source Aeroroutes)

The Cobalt Multiplier Challenge

Yesterday we put up a challenge for our readers to provide more confirmed Amex locations for our Cobalt Multipliers list and we quickly received a response from Wayne. Thanks to him we boosted the US listing by six entries and the rest of the world entries by nine as he provided us with our first locations in Singapore. These are all 5x points locations:


  • Death by Taco
  • The Grove – Yerba Buena,
  • Kona Coffee Purveyors
  • Tropical Tribe Ala Moana
  • Maguro Bros Hawaii
  • Foodland


  • Nakhon Udon Thai Kitchen (Golden mile Complex)
  • Komala Vilas Restaurant
  • Sheng Siong Supermarket
  • Tsukada Nojo
  • FairPrice Finest
  • Caffe Fernet
  • No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow
  • Soi 47 Thai Food
  • Flipper’s Takashimaya (Orchard)

We also added one more here in Canada, the Hospital Home Lottery in Calgary codes as 1x point.

Challenge stats:

Canada  – Goal: 1,000 entries by 2/28 | Current: 831
United States  – Goal: 250 entries by 2/28 | Current: 173
Rest of World  – Goal: 250 entries by 2/28 | Current: 178

I have also begun to split out which Walmart locations award 5x points as that seems to be a very popular question! Cardmembers definitely want to earn 5x points at Walmart if they can! If you shop at a Walmart that does earn 5x points please provide the name/location of it when you submit it so we can track them more closely.
