Last Day to enter for your chance to win 25,000 MileagePlus Miles from FFB & Rocketmiles!

Just over 10 years ago, launched with little to no fan-fare. It was an experiment of sorts and a logical expansion of the FFB Group’s first website

One of the most popular sections of Rewards Canada was our listing of Bonus Offers. Surprisingly, we started to notice large traffic spikes from outside of the country even though we didn’t list offers available to non-Canadians.

And thus the idea to develop a stand-alone site dedicated to bonus offers from frequent travel programs worldwide was born!

Fast-forward to 2015 and FFB is bigger than ever providing unparalleled coverage of the bonus and promotional offers of the world’s leading frequent travel programs. Most of that success can be attributed to our dedicated fans and readers.

So to help celebrate our 10th anniversary we will be offering our dedicated users a chance to win fantastic prizes as well as exclusive partner promotions all year long!!
