Marriott's flights and hotels program offers a uniquely valuable redemption for Canadians.
A review of what is currently the best credit card in Canada for everyday purchases.
Last week, I was at the W Austin, a very expensive, very chic hotel. The W, including many other hotels, are doing something extremely inconsiderate, that not only ruins that stay, but an entire trip.
Many hotel programs offer a Best Rate Guarantee (BRG) program, where the chain will beat any price listed by another online travel agent (subject to a laundry-list of terms and conditions). SPG has recently upped their BRG offer: you can select either a 20% discount on the matched rate, or 2,000 SPG points. Previously, the offer was a 10% discount on the matched rate. Moreover, unlike a number of other BRG programs, with SPG you don’t need to book before you submit a BRG claim. I recently did this, and will explain my experience and provide some tips for when you do it.
Per Canadian Kilometres, the AMEX SPG sign-up bonus is back up to 20,000 SPG Points. It used to be 21,000 with a referral, however, it was brought down to 10,000 for awhile. You can see my review of the SPG AMEX card, where I explain why it's one of my favourite cards.
