Aeroplan has launched a promotion for 35% conversion bonus from select hotel programs between July 17 – August 21, 2017.
Aeroplan usually runs promotions for conversions from hotel points to miles a couple of times a year and there are occasional targeted offers as well.
You can access Aeroplan’s page for conversions here.
Here are the eligible partners:
- SPG (access here)
- Marriott Rewards (access here)
- Hilton Honors (access here)
- Club Carlson (access here)
- Best Western Rewards (access here)
- Wyndham Rewards (access here)
- Coast Hotels (access here)
- Choice Privileges (access here)
- Le Club AccorHotels (access here)
- Shangri-La Golden Circle (access here)
I would be bit hesitant to convert hotel loyalty program points to Aeroplan miles considering the very high fuel surcharges that the program collects and the discontinuance of Air Canada partnership in 2020 (read more here).
If you have, however, planned to convert hotel points to Aeroplan miles, now would be the right time to do so.
The only two programs that I would consider are Marriott Rewards Travel packages and SPG Starpoints conversions at the 20K level that converts to 25,000 miles before the 35% bonus.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Bonus offer valid only on conversions received from eligible hotel partner loyalty programs points into Aeroplan Miles made between July 17 and August 21, 2017 (11:59 EDT). Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be issued by Aeroplan as follows: once the total Aeroplan Miles are earned by exchanging points from any combination of eligible partner programs during the promotion, the bonus miles deposited will represent 35% of the total miles earned from the exchange, BONUS MILE CREDITING: Bonus Aeroplan Miles may take up to 4‑6 weeks to be credited after the promotional offer end date of August 21, 2017.
While the conversion of Membership Rewards® points from American Express Card members accounts into Aeroplan Miles is still possible, it is not eligible for this bonus miles promotion.
Although eligible CIBC Aventura cardholders as of October 1, 2013, can convert their Aventura points into Aeroplan Miles, these conversions are not eligible for this bonus miles promotion.
Bonus Aeroplan Miles received from the exchange of hotel loyalty program points into Aeroplan Miles are not eligible for status in the Aeroplan program.
