On Tuesday, we wrote Air Canada Aeroplan promotion of 35% conversion bonus for transfers made from Marriott Rewards and SPG programs that starts today! The offer is valid for transfers made between September 13 – 17, 2018. .
Remember that you should convert in chunks of 60,000 points to miles, Aeroplan included, because Marriott Rewards/SPG will give you an additional 5,000 miles bonus making it 25,000 miles. This is before the additional sweetener from Aeroplan.
Note that Travel Package conversions are NOT eligible for Aeroplan bonus.
Here’s conversion example from Aeroplan:
60,000 points = 20,000 Aeroplan Miles
+ 5,000 bonus miles from Marriott
+ 8,750 miles (35% bonus)
= 33,750 Aeroplan Miles
The Marriott/SPG conversions were excluded from the most recent promotion from Aeroplan probably due to the program merger. Note that the Travel Packages are explicitly excluded from this Aeroplan conversion bonus.
This offer is good for those that can redeem for one of those mini RTWs that we have written about here recently (read more here).
Now that Aeroplan is going to be folded back to Air Canada the future is not bleak and crediting to the program is fine.
