About Us

Pointshogger About Us Cover Photo

 

Pointshogger is a website that aims to provide information about all the major loyalty miles and points programs in Canada, as well as helping Canadians maximize the rewards on every dollar spent. This goes for spending on travel, everyday credit card expenses, groceries, online shopping… anything that Canadians are eligible to collect in points or redeem savings on. We hope to provide a bank of information for people who are avid “Pointshoggers” and frugal spenders.

Matthew Lau

Chief Editor

 

Matthew has been an avid points collector since 1992 (an elementary school student), when his dad signed up for the Air Miles program. Since then, Matthew took a keen interest in learning how the miles and points world works. He quickly found out that there was a lot of value in leveraging miles and points to fund his passion for travelling.

He uses Award Wallet to track all his loyalty accounts, while referring to forums (Flyertalk, InsideFlyer, and Redflagdeals) to stay up-to-date.

He found that there was a lot of misconception about the value of miles and points, so Pointshogger was created to inspire Canadians on how to maximize the hard earned rewards by providing analysis and updates.

His favourite rewards programs are Aeroplan, American Express Membership Rewards, Best Western RewardsRBC Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest.

Check out Matthew being featured on CBC, CityNews, and MoneySense.

Viola Ng

Social Media/Marketing Manager

 

With a background in marketing and design, Viola has always taken an interest in starting something of her own in the field that she has studied, but never exactly knew what to “market” per se as a side business. Then she has come to realize that one of her personal strengths is money management and being frugal while leading a comfortable lifestyle. She has gotten to a point in her life where she cannot buy anything that is not on sale, redeemable with points, or simply free! This is why she wants to make it her mission to spread the word of points collecting so that every Canadian can get the best bang for the buck!

And while she’s at it… why not redeem points to go see the world? *snap snap*

Her favourite points to collect are American Express Membership Rewards (flexibility to transfer to other points program), Aeroplan, and Shoppers Optimum (for monthly bus passes).

‎Happy Pointshogging!

Shirley Huang

Editor

 

As a young marketer who loves to travel, Shirley has visited many parts of the world including Europe, Asia, North America as well as Africa. Studying International Business and Marketing, Shirley has been given the opportunity to study abroad in Singapore and Taiwan learning about their cultures and lifestyles.

As a child, she has always longed for a career where she can travel to foreign countries and introduce them to the world. She realized that she needed to start small, so marketing products and services to those who were not familiar with it would be her preliminary step.

When travelling became a frequent hobby for Shirley, she decided that signing up for a rewards card would be an ideal decision. Shirley has been a member of Aeroplan and Air Miles for over a decade, collecting points each time she travels. She has also stayed at hotels situated all over the world ranging from 2 stars to 6 stars; she’s become an expert in hotel bookings and standards.

At the moment, asides from her personal credit card portfolio which includes cards such as the MBNA Smart Cash MasterCard, American Express Gold Rewards Card, Best Western Rewards MasterCard and RBC Infinite Avion Visa Card, Shirley is also focusing on a business credit card portfolio. As a business owner, she loves using websites like ebates.ca and shop.ca to make business purchases.
