It is Saturday again, so here is another round of updates and promotions this past week. The highlight of the week is hands down our 2 year anniversary.
2 year anniversary
Don’t forget to comment on our Facebook before October 28, 2015, for a chance to win a $20 credit with LoungeBuddy, in celebration of our 2 year anniversary. The winner will be announced at the end of the month.
This is a very exciting time for Pointshogger. It has been a fun 2 years and we look forward in continuing to grow our brand!
5x with Aeroplan eStore
Until October 26, 2015, Aeroplan members can earn 5X the miles on purchases made through the Aeroplan eStore. This is an amazing way to load up on bonus miles. What I recommend is that if you ever have any purchases can wait, hold off until you see promotions like this to take advantage of earning more bonus points.
Airbnb Insurance Boost for Canadians
The online accomodation provider, Airbnb, is adding a new level of insurance coverage (called the Host Protection Insurance program) in Canada. This was already launched earlier this year in the United States. This is actually an amazing initiative, to help make Airbnb’s more competitive.
Even though I can’t really earn points from Airbnb stays, I actually welcome this improvement, as I am more than happy to put some pressure on hotel chains to become more competitive!
