The BMO AIR MILES Mastercards are due for another revampIn light of the recent news of Sobeys et al. moving from AIR MILES to Scene+ and my updating of the Rewards Canada review of the BMO AIR MILES World Elite Mastercard it became very apparent to me that BMO is going to have to revamp their portfolio of AIR MILES co-brand credit cards.

RSVP Rewards is the relatively new program for Canada’s Sandman Hotels and The Sutton Place Hotels. Outside of coverage on Rewards Canada the year old program has gone relatively unnoticed but with this new partnership it has definitely been brought into the spotlight. Recommended reading: RSVP Rewards – Canada’s newest hotel loyalty programThe partnership sees holders of premium and ultra premium Visa cards in Canada receive automatic elite status in the RSVP Rewards program. To the best of our knowledge this is first such hotel elite benefit to be seen on non co-brand credit cards and non American Express cards in Canada. Visa (and several other cards) used to offer status with Fairmont’s President’s Club years ago but once Fairmont was taken over by Accor that benefit disappeared so this new initiative is welcome addition to the cards.
