Aeroplan has launched new promotion for 25% conversion bonus from select hotel programs between March 12 – April 16, 2018.
Aeroplan usually runs promotions for conversions from hotel points to miles 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)
- Radisson 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).
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 25% bonus.
Aeroplan offered 35% conversion bonus when they run this offer last time in the fall of 2017.
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 March 12 and April 16, 2018 (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 25% 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 April 16, 2018.
**The total amount of miles received from the conversion of hotel loyalty program points into Aeroplan miles must be greater than or equal to 5,000 Aeroplan Miles in order to be eligible to receive the 25% bonus.
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.
Please note that some hotel loyalty programs have hotel and flight redemption packages where Aeroplan Miles are issued. It is at the discretion of each Hotel Program if these miles are deemed a conversion of points to miles or simply a bonus earned for the redemption.
