Up to 30% Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert hotel loyalty program points to Aeroplan

We see the return of another Aeroplan conversion bonus! Unlike the summer offer this one only focuses on hotel loyalty program transfers and offers up to a 30% bonus. Like all of Aeroplan's conversion bonuses of late you don't have to convert all at once rather they will tally all of transfers made by the end of the promotion and then you will be rewarded with a bonus that corresponds with the number of Aeroplan miles you earned from those transfers. The transfer levels and their corresponding bonus are as follows:

Most of Aeroplan's hotel partners are participating in the promotion so you can convert from any of the following to add to your final tally:
Your best bet for transfers is Starwood Preferred Guest of course since they transfer 1 to 1 to Aeroplan and if you transfer 20,000 Starpoints at one time SPG will through in an additional 5,000 miles for 25,000 Aeroplan miles. With the conversion bonus you are actually looking at adding at least 20% to that so you'll get 30,000 Aeroplan Miles for the 20,000 Starpoints. As you may have seen on the Rewards Canada site last week, SPG is actually running a discount for buying their Starpoints of up to 50%. If you actually qualify for the 50% off like we did you can buy 20,000 Starpoints for US$350 which means you can buy 30,000 Aeroplan miles for that amount. Seeing that 30,000 Aeroplan Miles can get you two short haul tickets that cost more than US$350 you can see the potential value in buying Starpoints and then converting to Aeroplan. Of course many of you collect Starpoints anyways which can all be converted to Aeroplan. In fact if you can get to the 200,000 mile level in transfers you'll end up with 260,000 Aeroplan Miles which is more than enough points for two business class tickets to Europe. Some of you may find great value in that.

Another route to look at is Marriott Rewards Hotel+Air package options. These are the packages where you can redeem Marriott Rewards points for free nights at there hotels plus a certain amount of airline miles.  For Aeroplan the Hotel+Air package looks like this:
If you are sitting on 270,000 or more Marriott Rewards points you can end up with 7 nights at a Category 1-5 hotel plus 150,000 Aeroplan Miles (120,000 + 25% bonus)

Of course if you have points sitting in other hotel programs that you may never use or are about to expire you should look at transferring them to Aeroplan so that you actually get some value out of them!
