Idine continues it's expansion into the Canadian market by now including Canadian hotels. Earlier in the year, Idine begun adding Canadian restaurants in Ontario and B.C. where members could earn miles. Idine offers another way to earn miles by gaining them on your dining bill at participating restaurants and for hotel stays booked through them. To join you must register a credit card number (that's how they track and issue miles) under the individual airline's program with Idine. Currently Canadian residents can join Idine programs with Continental, America West, Delta, United, Alaska, and American. Unfortunately Northwest and US Airways only allow US members at this time.
