Top Loyalty Programs in Canada (updated November 13, 2016)

This post is long overdue for an update. Last time around, I still listed Air Miles as one of the top 5. With the upcoming controversial expiry policy (which may be altered anyway by a new legislation), they will temporary be bumped out of the top 5.


15% Conversion Bonus from RBC to WestJet

There is a week left on the Royal Bank of Canada’s Avion (or RBC Rewards) program’s 15% transfer bonus to WestJet Rewards. It has been running since October 3, 2016, and ends on November 14, 2016. Historically, it is a disappointing transfer bonus, that is why I held off writing about it. I will explain why below.


Fast Track WestJet Flight Benefits of Elite Statuses

WestJet Rewards is offering an interested fast track option that will allow you to qualify for flight benefits received by its Silver or Gold elite status members. If you qualify now, you will receive the benefits until December 31, 2017. You will have to book all your flights between October 3, 2016 and December 18, 2016.

Converting Esso Extra to Airline Miles

You probably see a lot of advertisement about the Esso Extra program. Lots of hype goes into the Esso Privileges card. However, there is actually a pretty net way of converting your Esso Extra points into airline miles and get more value. It requires a 2 step process though.

[AIRLINE] Expiration Policies (updated on February 20, 2016)

I think that we are due for an update for airline expiration policies, as a few of them have changed recently. I have only listed frequent flyer programs that have a direct way of earning miles with them in Canada. You can always keep these accounts active with co-share or alliance member partners.


25% Conversion Bonus to WestJet Rewards (February 1, 2016 and March 13, 2016)

Royal Bank of Canada’s Avion (or RBC Rewards) program is once again offering a 25% transfer bonus to WestJet Rewards. In the past, we have seen this promotion fluctuate with either a 20% or 25% bonus for the transfer. The past few times have been 20%, so I’m glad to see the 25% back.
