American Airlines & US Airways SPG Starpoints To Miles 20% Conversion Bonus July 1-31, 2014

1 Comment

Both American Airlines and US Airways are offering 20% bonus for converting Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Starpoints to either AAdvantage or Dividend Miles between July 1-31, 2014.

American Airlines US Airways SPG Starpoints 20 Percent Conversion Bonus July 2014

When you convert 20,000, 40,000 or 60,000 Starpoints to American Airlines miles the SPG will give you 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 bonus miles BEFORE the AA/US 20% conversion bonus.

You can access the AA’s offer here and US offer here.

Here’s how converting Starpoints to AA or US miles work:

Convert 20,000 Starpoints to 25,000 AA or US miles (20,000 + 5,000 bonus from SPG). AA or US will then give you an additional 20% bonus bringing the total to 30,000 miles for 20,000 Starpoints.

Does it make sense to convert Starpoints to AA or US miles?

Unless you have immediate use for either AA or US miles, I would not take advantage of this conversion bonus. AA recently discontinues their Oneworld award overnight without giving any prior notice to its program members and I doubt that they would give any advance notice in the future either.

Conclusion

This is a good offer if you are using the miles right away. I took advantage of a similar offer that AA made to Marriott conversions before their partnership was ending at the time (the partnership was reactivated last year) and when those miles counted towards the Million Miler status.

Here are the terms and conditions of the AA transfer offer:

AAdvantage Bonus Mile Offer Terms and Conditions

Starwood Guest Preferred Transfer to Miles Terms and Conditions
Starwood Preferred Guests can transfer up to 79,999 of their Starpoints per transaction per program within a 24-hour period to the American Airlines AAdvantage program. Plus, for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred within the same transaction, Starwood will automatically add another 5,000 Starpoints!

There is no minimum Starpoint transfer requirement for Platinum Preferred Guest members. Gold Preferred Guest members have a minimum transfer requirement of 1,500 Starpoints, and Preferred Guest members have a minimum transfer requirement of 2,500 Starpoints.

Transfer maximums are based on a combination of member Starpoints and the Starwood Preferred Guest airline transfer transaction bonus. Only one airline transfer transaction per member per 24-hour period is allowed; multiple transfer transactions within the same 24-hour period will reject. Both the Starwood Preferred Guest and AAdvantage account must have identical member names in order to complete this request; different names will cause the transfer to reject. Airline transfers are one-way, non-reversible and non-refundable.
