Aeroplan Conversion Bonus returns - Earn up to 55,000 Bonus Miles when you covert points from other programs
Aeroplan has once again brought back their partner transfer bonus that we now see at least twice per year Basically what it entails is transferring points out of other select loyalty programs into your Aeroplan account. Unlike the last couple of bonuses that maxed out on the 40,000 mile high end this time the bonus goes as high as 55,000 miles if you covert points worth 200,000 or more miles. As always now there are no financial partners involved again, for Canadians that is, Americans get Diners Club Club Rewards in that category. Basically you can transfer from partners like Starwood, Hertz and more (see the last graphic) and as long as the total Aeroplan miles deposited from all of them reaches one of the bonus target levels you will be awarded the respective bonus miles. They also have a lower end threshold now of 2,500 - 4,999 miles which will earn a 500 mile bonus.
And just like the last four versions of this offer, American Express Membership Rewards is unfortunately not included. so chances are I will not use the promo this time (again).
If you are a Starwood Preferred Guest collector you can really up the bonus by taking advantage of their 5,000 Mile bonus offer when you convert 20,000 Starpoints into Aeroplan. Which means in this promotion you can get 29,000 Aeroplan Miles for 20,000 Starpoints or if you transfer 20k four times, you'll get 125,000 Aeroplan Miles for 80,000 Starpoints. Of course I like to keep Starpoints for award nights or cash+points stays within the Starwood family but some of you may like this transfer option. You can get 20,000 Starpoints simply by getting the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express
