AIR MILES to lose LCBO as a partner as of March 31st A tip of the hat to Anshul at Points, Miles & Bling for alerting us on Twitter to this latest development for the AIR MILES program. One of their longest standing partnerships is coming to an end on March 31 as LCBO will be leaving the program. For 23 years members in Ontario have been able to rack up miles and sometimes tons of miles for the liquor purchases at LCBO locations. The government owned liquor retailer announced today the end of the relationship and mentioned in the new release a plan for a future loyalty program. If I was to wager a guess it will be their own program since the back end systems to run such programs have become very affordable and cost a lot less than to take part in the AIR MILES program. A similar situation transpired here in Alberta a few years ago where liquor stores that were part of AIR MILES, namely Crowfoot Wines & Spirits left AIR MILES to launch their own program called Market Rewards. This news is hot on the heels of the AIR MILES program losing Lowe’s/Rona/Reno Depot last month and Rexall last year…

February 26 Update: One bright spot in the Cineplex SCENE changes and earn 1,000 bonus points per night at the new Hilton Vancouver Downtown (old Westin Grand)Here’s your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your daily dose (or near daily dose) of loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more.  A quick update to our SCENE devaluation post from yesterday – As Phil M on Twitter noted to us the change in earn rates at physical theatres is both a devaluation but also a potential enhancement. The reason being currently Cineplex awards 125 points only on the first ticket and 65 points for up to two children. However if you have any further adult or child tickets no points would be awarded on them. In the update as of April 30 it will be 5 points per dollar on all tickets so if you are buying for two adults you’ll come out even or ahead if you are buying for more adults and children than that.Images via SCENE—  You may recall that back at the start of December we provided details on the Westin Grand Vancouver will be rebranded as a Hilton. It will be known as the Hilton Vancouver Downtown and to celebrate the addition of the hotel to the Hilton family of hotels they will be awarding 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points per night for stays at the hotel from April 1 to September 30…

A strong credit score and report are essential to your financial health. It not only ensures access to credit, but it also helps you get lower interest rates when you borrow, makes it easier to rent a house or apartment or buy a cellphone on a contract. Unfortunately, your credit report can be compromised by identity theft and credit fraud, which is more prevalent today than ever before.
Thankfully, checking your credit report often can protect you against fraudsters. One of the easiest ways to do this is by signing up for a credit monitoring service. But what is credit monitoring, and how does it work?
How Does Credit Monitoring Work?
A credit monitoring service keeps tabs on your credit information regularly and sends you an alert anytime there is a change you should be aware of. Examples include a new credit account that’s opened in your name or a late payment reported by a credit issuer on your bureau. In most cases, this activity will be perfectly valid, but if it isn’t, you’ll be the first to know about it…
