Receive a 30% bonus when you transfer HSBC Rewards points to British Airways Executive Club


The HSBC Rewards transfer bonus to British Airways Executive Club is now live! We first gave you advance notice back in May and now a reminder that you can receive a 30% bonus when converting your  points! The last few iterations of the bonus have seen it at 35% and 40%, so it is not as high this time but still a very worthy bonus to consider.  This could be a prime time for those of you who grabbed the HSBC World Elite Mastercard in Fall of 2020 and missed the offer last July to convert now. Those of you who signed up for the card in Fall of 2021 with the 100K bonus should have a sizeable amount of points as well to consider converting.

Top Travel Credit Card Sign Up offers for June - These cards provide the best value out of their welcome bonuses



Here are Rewards Canada's Top Travel Credit Card Sign Up offers for the month of June 2022! This is not a 'best' credit card list like our Top Travel Rewards Credit Card rankings but instead a look at cards that have very good acquisition (welcome/sign up) offers. As always when choosing a card you should always take other factors into account other than the just sign up bonus, but when some of these cards are first year free, they can and do pay off even when you grab them strictly for the sign up rewards.

Another Ultimate Portfolio update to let you know about - this time we updated The Ultimate "I have no idea what travel rewards I want" Credit Card portfolio! This is for those people who don't have set reward goals but know they want to be earning points and miles to use towards travel at sometime in the future. This portfolio is actually more than that - it is one of the top portfolios even the most seasoned points and miles enthusiasts would consider because it consists of only hybrid rewards cards and those are the best type of cards out there! This was another substantial update as 2 of the 3 cards were switched from when we made this portfolio in 2017! The recommended American Express Card is now the American Express Cobalt Card instead of the Gold Rewards Card and the Mastercard is now the HSBC World Elite Mastercard. Both of these cards did not exist when this portfolio was first published so it was due for a major overhaul.. Plus the feature hasbeen updated to the new Rewards Canada template. Check out the updated portfolio here!

Air France unveiled a new business class seat that the airline will be adding it to a dozen of their 40+ Boeing 777-300 aircraft. The new fully lie flat seats will provide direct aisle access and have a sliding door for privacy. The planes will also see new Premium Economy and Economy seats installed to bring these cabins up to date. The new seats will be initially available on their New York JFK route this fall and since the 777-300 is sometimes used on their Montreal to Paris CDG route as well so it is possible the new seats could be on this route as well - at least on occasion!
