Transfer points to Aeroplan to earn up to 40,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles

Aeroplan is once again resurrecting their partner transfer bonus that we saw this spring.  The latest in their slew of offers is the return of their partner transfer bonus. Basically what it entails is transferring points out of other select loyalty programs into your Aeroplan account. Just like we saw in May, the offer is once again cumulative across all participating partners. That is, you can transfer from partners like CIBC, 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.  I did notice that this time the offer seems to target U.S. Credit Card holders save for CIBC in Canada as Bank of America and Diners Club Club Rewards are included. Of course all of the other hotel, car rental and partners are available to us Canadians.

Unfortunately for me I like this promotion when American Express Membership Rewards is included but this time it is not, so chances are I will not use the promo this time.

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.

The offer as pulled from our Aeroplan Bonus Mile Promotions page is as follows:

Earn up to 40,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert points from a wide selection of Aeroplan partner loyalty programs (hotel, car rental, credit card and Bonuses are as follows and are awarded on a cumulative basis (not per transaction like previous promotions)

  1. Excluding AMEX MR again? come on...

    Although, with the rumor Aeroplan may charge YQ on ALL carriers in future, I'll probably keep my AMEX MR until last minute, or transfer some to Avios
