RWRDS Daily Update – May 19, 2023

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

Strike averted! WestJet and its pilots reach a tentative agreement

That was close! Roughly four hours before WestJet pilots were set to walk off the job and be locked out their union and the airline announced a tentative agreement. However even though an agreement was reached WestJet had already begun cancelling some flights and there are some that will not operate today and over the coming days. If you have flights booked for this weekend I would recommend checking the status online to see if they will be operating.

New Amex Offers statement credit for Northumberland Heights Wellness Retreat & Spa

Add one more Amex offer to the list of those being released this week. This one is for anyone heading out to the Cobourg area in Ontario and if you want to treat yourself to a day out at the spa:

Spend at least $500 in qualifying purchases using your registered Card at Northumberland Heights Wellness Retreat & Spa location in Cobourg, Ontario or at www.northumberlandheights.com by 14/08/2023 and earn a one-time $100 statement credit. Terms apply.

Personally I received this offer on The Platinum Card from American Express but you may receive it on a different card.

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.  You can find this and many more offers in our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers’

Four additional Cobalt Card multiplier locations

A few more confirmed American Express Cobalt Card Multipliers thanks to Dejan, Moe and ourselves. Moe also asks if our readers can confirm if other Adonis Supermarkets are 5x points as the one he shops at is.

  • Adonis supermarket – Brossard Quebec 5x points
  • Walmart Saskatoon North 3084 Saskatoon Saskatchewan 1x points
  • Crescent Liquor Calgary Alberta 1x points
  • Big Bucket Car Wash Calgary Alberta 1x points

Here’s a tip for buying liquor in the Calgary area – some liquor stores are 5x points like Ace Liquor Discounter and grocery store liquor stores like Safeway, Sobeys and Co-Op. Still it’s good to know others that accept Amex in general like the one listed above.
