January 28 Update: RBC Rewards launches new website, more Marriott Bonvoy stay bonuses in Canada and the Top Travel Rewards Credit Cards for 2020RBC Rewards has launched their new website that has been promoted recently on the old version of the site! It is easier to navigate with the fresh new look and they promise to have more promotions and offers with this launch. Most of the site is working although I did get the occasional error. The first thing I did with the new site however was to check the Avion Air Travel Redemption chart to make sure a change wasn’t snuck in in the revamp (programs tend to like to do that) and I am happy to report no changes in the reward chart at this time. All points rates and max dollar values remain the same.

January 29 Update: How to maximize the elite status benefits from The Platinum Card from American Express updated, great Marriott bonus in the Bahamas, BA and AC China flight cancellationsAnother feature update to let you know about. How to maximize the elite status benefits from The Platinum Card from American Express has been updated and now shows you how you can get 11 hotel elite status, 1 airline status, 2 car rental status and 1 cruise line status with The Platinum Card. My tweet yesterday stated 10 hotel statuses but after posting about the Choice Hotels sale earlier today I went back to check the Choice status match and they have removed the stay requirement that they added last year so I have further updated the feature to reflect this. Check out the feature here.Over on FrequentFlyerBonuses.com I highlight a pretty amazing Marriott Bonvoy bonus points offer. You can earn 25,000 Bonus Points for stays of 2 or more nights at the French Leave Resort, Autograph Collection, Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera. The special rate for earning the bonus points is the same as the member only rate – there is no extra charge from them. If you only stay 2 nights that means you’d earn 12,500 bonus points per night!
