We see the return of another Aeroplan conversion bonus!
Last seen this past summer, the hotel only transfer bonus is back but
this time it’s a flat 30% bonus miles instead of the flat 35% seen in the previous version. You have the make sure that you transfer enough hotel points to earn 5,000 Aeroplan Miles in your account by December 11 to get the 30% bonus which of course is lower than the summer promotion but what is good again is that the bonus is not tiered like we were used to prior to the summer and 30% is still a pretty good deal especially if you have you eyes on a flight reward in the next few months.
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 throw in an additional 5,000 miles for 25,000
Aeroplan miles. With the conversion bonus you are actually looking at
getting 32,500 Aeroplan Miles for the
20,000 Starpoints. Those miles can get you two short
haul tickets so you can see the potential value
in transferring Starpoints to Aeroplan.
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!
30% Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert Hotel loyalty programs points to Aeroplan Miles. Full details Until Dec 11, 17
Normally we would recommend getting the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card to be able to take advantage of this offer but seeing how there is only a one month window for it chances are getting that card and the points from would most likely happen after December 11th. You could look at getting the American Express Cobalt Card since it earns Membership Rewards points which you have access to immediately and start putting tons of spend on it in the 5x Food & Dining category and then convert whatever points you have to SPG shortly before December 11 and that will equate to 2.5 Starpoints per dollar spent.
