SkyTeam Lounge opens in Vancouver - their first lounge in the Americas and Priority Pass members are welcome!

Photo credit: Vancouver Airport Authority
Back in June we posted news on our Canadian website that the SkyTeam Alliance would be opening their first business class lounge in the Americas right here in Canada in Vancouver. Great news is the lounge opened up on November 15th to the travelling public and is now the 7th SkyTeam lounge globally. (Source YVR) Access is as follows per the SkyTeam Lounge website:

Lounge Access Policy

First and Business Class

All First and Business Class passengers traveling on, or connecting to/from, a same-day international flight operated by a SkyTeam member airline have access to a lounge. Lounge access will be provided only at your departure and transfer airports, and not on arrival. For connecting customers, both the domestic and international flights must be operated by a SkyTeam member airline and all segments need to be booked in First or Business Class. Simply present your First or Business Class boarding passes for the lounge agent to validate for admission.

SkyTeam Elite Plus

Regardless of their travel class, SkyTeam Elite Plus members traveling on, or connecting to/from, a same-day international flight operated by a SkyTeam member airline have access to a lounge. Lounge access will be provided only at your departure airport and transfer airports, and not on arrival. For connecting customers, both the domestic and international flights must be operated by a SkyTeam member airline. Simply present your boarding passes and a valid Elite Plus membership card for the lounge agent to validate for admission.

Guests

SkyTeam Elite Plus members can invite a guest traveling on a SkyTeam member airline operated flight. Simply present the boarding pass of your guest for the lounge agent to validate for admission.
You are welcome in our lounges within 24 hours of your scheduled departure time.
But also as of November 15th, Priority Pass members have access to the lounge as well!

This is great news if you are not flying on a SkyTeam airline or are but don't have status or your not flying in Business or First Class. Priority Pass as you may or may not know is the lounge access program that provides access and benefits to over 1,000 lounges and restaurants around the World. Some credit card programs give you Priority Pass membership or you can buy yearly memberships in the program. We recommend reading Rewards Canada's Guide to Business Class Lounge Access for complete details on how to get a Priority Pass membership.
Priority Pass details for the lounge

Have you had the chance to visit the lounge already or will you be planning on doing so soon? Let us know below in the comments!

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan: Up to a 40% bonus when you buy miles until December 28


Alaska Airlines has launched yet another buy miles bonus! Though not as good as the 50% we saw earlier in the year some of you may be able to make great use of buying the miles with a 40% bonus! With the 40% offer you are buying Mileage Plan Miles at roughly 2.11 cents each:

 
 

Seeing that you can redeem miles for premium class flights on British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Hainan, Korean Air and more, there are lots of options for you to use these miles. Remember it only takes 70,000 Mileage Plan miles to fly Cathay Pacific First Class one way from North America to Asia and those 70K will cost you $1478.13 as seen above - and to pay for that first class will cost you a lot more than that!

Offer details
Earn up to 40% Bonus Mileage Plan Miles when you buy or gift miles.  Full details Until Dec 28, 17
  • 10,000 – 19,000 miles = 20% bonus
  • 20,000 – 39,000 miles = 35% bonus

World of Hyatt: Up to a 40% bonus when you buy points


It's the season for buying points and miles bonuses! While there are many bonuses for the buying of points and miles throughout the year there tends to be two spikes per year where there are lots of offers at once and one of those spikes is right now. This offer is tiered and offers up to 40% bonus points. You need to buy at least 5,000 points to get the lowest bonus of 20% or 30,000 or more points to get the 40%. The offer of 40% works out to 1.714 cents per point. Depending on how you redeem them it could be worthwhile to purchase them for rewards at high end hotels like Park Hyatt's around the globe or even buying less if you just need a few thousand points to top off for an award.

Offer details
Earn up to 40% Bonus World of Hyatt Points when you buy points online. Full details. Until Dec 15, 17

Purchase between 5,000 and 9,000 Bonus Points in a single transaction and receive 20% additional Bonus Points or purchase between 10,000 and 29,000 Bonus Points in a single transaction and receive 30% additional Bonus Points or purchase a minimum of 30,000 Bonus Points in a single transaction and receive 40% additional Bonus Points.

Avianca LifeMiles - 145% Bonus when you buy LifeMiles until November 27



Avianca has launched a great buy miles offer for Cyber Week! It is not tiered, it is not exclusive to select blogs. This is one of the best buy miles offers yet from Avianca due to these reasons. You can buy 1,000 miles and get the 145% bonus or you can buy 200,000 miles and get the 145% bonus! The price per 1,000 miles is USD33 which means you are buying miles for 1.35 cents pre tax.



Considering Avianca is a Star Alliance member this is a great way to get a lot of miles to use for airlines like ANA, Lufthansa, Asiana and more! Some things to consider with the buy miles option before you pull the trigger is that their call center tends to be on the less helpful side so you are better off booking award tickets online which also means you are limited to the powers of that source and they have devalued the program without notice in the past so only buy these miles if you think you will use them in the next short while (<6 br="" months="">
Offer details
145% Bonus LifeMiles when you buy LifeMiles online.  Full details  Until Nov 27, 17
