Air Canada’s Aeroplan program has launched a 30% conversion bonus when transferring points from hotel loyalty programs to Aeroplan in between September 9- 22, 2019.
You can access Aeroplan’s website here. This offer only lasts for 2 weeks until September 22nd 2019!.
Here’s conversion example from Marriott to Aeroplan:
60,000 points = 20,000 Aeroplan Miles
+ 5,000 bonus miles from Marriott
+ 7,500 miles (30% bonus)
= 32,500 Aeroplan Miles
Transfers to miles from your Marriott account can be initiated here.
You can also transfer from the following programs:
- Accor Hotels Le Club
- Best Western Rewards
- Choice Privileges
- Coast Hotels
- Hilton Honors
- Hyatt – World of Hyatt
- IHG Rewards Club
- Marriott Bonvoy
- Radisson Rewards
- Shangri-La Golden Circle
The transfer ratio from programs other than Marriott Bonvoy isn’t exactly great so I’d think twice about the value of your hotel points before moving them to Aeroplan.
This is how it works:
Keep in mind the 30% bonus miles don’t post immediately so if you plan to book an award immediately remember that this amount isn’t available in the account right away.
This offer is good for those that can redeem for one of those mini RTWs that we have written about before (read more here).
Now it became certain that Aeroplan is going to be folded back to Air Canada, the programs future is secure and crediting to the program is fine. As always I don’t recommend shifting points unless you have a specific redemption in mind.
