Now that Aeroplan has instituted fuel surcharges on most awards, they have announced a promotion for transferring points from partner programs that are converted to Aeroplan miles. Depending on the number of miles received after conversion Aeroplan is offering a 20% to 25% bonus. The maximum number of bonus miles per partner transfer is 25000. You can earn the maximum number from multiple partners. This offer is valid for transfers from November 21st, 2011 and December 12th, 2011.
Does it make sense to convert? Well, it depends. If you have something specific in mind redemption wise and don’t mind paying the fuel surcharges, it probably does. Air Canada’s Aeroplan still offers quite relaxed routing rules for awards issued using their points. If you happen to have 80000 Starwood Star Points they would transfer to 125000 Aeroplan miles using this promotion.
