Japan's ANA All Nippon Airways are offering a status match in their Mileage Club program (s/b guaranteed matches for AA, DL, JL elite members)


Earlier this week Loyalty Lobby reported about a new elite status match offer from Japan's ANA All Nippon Airways Mileage Club. This status match is open to Canadian residents excluding those in Quebec who hold status with American Airlines, Delta, or  JAL Japan Airlines. They will potentially match other non Star Alliance airlines as well based on an 'other airline' option on the application form. The status match will see eligible elite members from other airlines receive Mileage Club Bronze or Platinum status and if you happen to get Mileage Club Platinum that means you'll have Star Alliance Gold status. For a lot of Canadians it will beg the question if ANA will match WestJet Gold or Platinum status because then you'd have ANA status that you can utilize if and when you fly on Air Canada.

February 15 Update: Neo Financial now offers a secured rewards card, new Amex Offer for Pizza Nova & ANA changes Vancouver flight to Tokyo Narita

Here's your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your near daily dose of loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more. This update is brought to you by the HSBC World Elite Mastercard which is currently offering a welcome bonus of up to 100,000 bonus points worth $500, has no foreign transaction fees and no annual fee in the first year! 

Neo Financial
has released a secured version of their Neo Mastercard that will earn the same rewards and discounts as their standard card offer. The only difference is your credit limit is set by what you have set as your security limit in your Neo Savings account. And the great thing is Neo only requires a $50 minimum security balance and you can adjust that amount as you please by moving funds to your security balance. Check out the new Neo Secured card here.

March 27 Update: You can no longer earn any points or miles with Amazon Canada, Japanese Airlines delay points expiry + double elite points on flights, Qantas offers elite status extension

Amazon Canada has now been pulled from Aeroplan eStore - you officially cannot earn any miles, points or cash back for shopping at Amazon via any of the online portals.

Japan's two major airlines, JAL and ANA have both issued extensions of mileage expiry by one year and both have also initiated double elite status point earning on all their flights. ANA's double premium points offer is good for all flights to June 30 and JAL's double Fly On Points is valid on flights until July 31. Learn more about the ANA details here and the JAL details here.

Qantas has also revealed that elite status members in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program will get 12 month extensions on their status. Find out more here

The extension will be actioned in two phases - if your membership year ends:

  • between March and June 2020, it will be automatically extended by 27 March 2020; and
  • between July 2020 and February 2021, it will be automatically extended by 9 April 2020.
The processing date for the 12 month status extension cannot be changed. And here is the chart of when the extensions will be valid to:
Your current Membership Year end date: Your status will be extended by Qantas to: New Frequent Flyer card will be sent to you:

August 11 Update: RBC Cathay Pacific Visa sign up bonus increased, ANA extra piece of luggage offer out of YVR, Britsh Airways buy Avios bonus

Welcome to the next week of updates here on Rewards Canada!

News, Tips & Tricks
LoyaltyLobby points out that the Four Points Vancouver Airport had an unannounced award night category change. The hotel moves from an SPG Category 2 to Category 3 hotel.

ANA All Nippon is offering 1 additional piece of baggage at no additional charge for eligible passengers flying Economy class on their Vancouver- Tokyo Narita flights. The offer is good for flights between October 1st and March 31st, 2015. Find out more here

In the bonus offers section you'll see that the sign up bonus for the Cathay Pacific Asia Miles Platinum Card from RBC has been increased to 15,000 miles from the usual 10,000 miles. Even with the extra miles this is a relatively weak sign up bonus and the card itself is in the middle to lower end of the pack for airline cards in Canada. Really the card is very specific to those who fly on Cathay Pacific lots and have Asia Miles as their primary frequent flyer program.

Dec 11 Update: Mileage Plan expands EQM earning, Delta SkyMiles actually enhances their Elite Program, ANA to start Vancouver-Tokyo Service

Lots of news to bring you here in the middle of the week!

News, Tips & Tricks

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan keeps getting better in our eyes! The latest announcement from them sees Mileage Plan members being able to earn miles and segments towards Elite Qualification on flights taken with all of their international partner airlines including: British Airways, Korean Air, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, and Fiji Airways beginning January 15, 2014. Full details

Delta Airlines SkyMiles has improved their Elite level program with several changes taking place March 2014. Quite possibly the best change is that these new Upgrades are available on nearly all paid fare classes whereas the previous Systemwide upgrades could only be used on the most expensive economy fare classes plus these new upgrades are confirmable in advance so that you don't have to play the upgrade lottery a few days before your flight or at check in.

Beginning March 1, 2014, Systemwide Upgrades will be replaced by Global and Regional Upgrades as a Choice Benefits selection. Global Upgrades are available on all routes and Regional Upgrades are available on the same routes as Medallion Complimentary Upgrades, but have a higher priority. Both can be used on all Economy Class fares except for E, allowing you more redemption options and convenience.
  • Diamond Medallion members may choose either four (4) Global Upgrades or eight (8) Regional Upgrades.
  • Platinum Medallion members may choose four (4) Regional Upgrades.
  • You may continue to select Systemwide Upgrades as a Choice Benefit through February 28, 2014.
Also, we are pleased to announce new Choice Benefits options to select from beginning March 1, 2014. Complimentary Global Entry will be added as an option for members who wish to save time re-entering the U.S. or going through security. Diamond Medallion members can select two Global Entry application vouchers as a Choice Benefits selection and Platinum Medallion members can select one.
Diamond Medallion members may also select two Tiffany & Co. premium luggage tags as a Choice Benefits selection beginning March 1, 2014.
For more information about Global and Regional Upgrades, click here.

ANA All Nippon has announced new service between Vancouver and Tokyo Haneda. This represents the airline's first route into Canada and allows for more earning and redemption optoins for Aeroplan, MileagePlus and other Star Alliance members in Canada. The flight will operate daily with a Boeing 767-300. For years Rewards Canada has tracked ANA Mileage Club bonus mile offers in our bonus section even without them serving Canada since they were a Star Alliance partner. ANA typically has route launch bonuses for their Mileage Club members so hopefully this will be the case with their new YVR flight. Keep an eye out on our Mileage Club page for any and all Mileage Club bonuses. (Source:

British Airways has announced that a second Canadian city will be getting Boeing 787 service and that city is Rewards Canada's hometown of Calgary! BA's current 767 offering on the route will be replaced with the 787 as of July 5. Great news for Executive Club members in Alberta. Source: British Airways)

On another good Star Alliance note, LOT Polish Airlines will be increasing their Toronto-Warsaw service for summer of 2014 to 9 flights per week.(Source

Here are the earning details from Qatar's site and here they are for American.

In the bonus offers section we list an offer from ANA All Nippon Mileage Club for discounted award flights. This is one of those better offers for Canadian Mileage Club members since ANA doesn't actually fly to Canada but the promotion is for reward tickets on Air New Zealand and ANZ does serve Vancouver. If you don't collect Mileage Club miles you can take advantage of this offer by converting Starwood Preferred Guest Points into Mileage Club.

Japan's two largest carriers duke it out with system wide double mileage campaigns

What started out as a thank you to customers of Japan Airlines during their rough times and bankruptcy issues, has turned into a war between the country's two rivals.

Japan Airlines Mileage Bank started it all with their JAL Mileage Project 2010. A way of saying thanks and of course to retain or gain new customers. The JAL Mileage Project 2010 is a great selection of promotions for members of JAL's Mileage Bank program. The primary promotion is Double Mileage Bank miles on all flights system wide including Vancouver-Tokyo with very few restrictions (ie International flights on JAL metal only, code-shares not applicable). The double mileage offer runs April 1-May 31

On top of this they are offering a First Flight bonus that again is pretty much available on all flights like above. This offer however is only for Flyon Status members and JAL Credit Card holders worldwide.

The next promotion is for also for Flyon Status members, whereby they will earn double status miles from April 1 to September 30

The final bonus offer is for JAL Credit Card holders only where they will earn 400 bonus Flyon (Status) points over above the double listed above.

Also included in JAL's promotion are discounted reward tickets for JAL Credit Card holders, and additional upgrade points or lounge coupons to Flyon status members.

For more details and to register for all these offers see this page on JAL's website

Of course, seeing that its primary competitor launched these promotions, there was nothing else to do ANA All Nippon then to launch their own campaign. While not as extensive as JAL's, ANA only wanted to match the most important part of JAL's offer, the double miles for flights systemwide. That is what ANA is offering, Double Mileage Club miles to all members who register for the offer. It also has similar restrictions in that International flights must be on ANA metal and not on partner airlines. Just like JAL's offer, ANA's promotion runs April 1 to May 31.

For more details on ANA's offer click here.

Now, the question that begs to be answered is: will non-Japanese airlines match the double mileage offers on at least their home country to Japan flights? We have not seen anything yet but if we do you will see it posted below as a comment (or if you do please post it below!).
