Aeroplan Bonus for Converting Points from Other Programs

Via NotiFlyer, through December 12 Aeroplan is offering up to 25,000 bonus miles for converting points into their program.

The bonus applies to American Express Membership Rewards, Diners Club, Best Western Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest, Marriott Rewards, Hilton HHonors, Hyatt Gold Passport, Choice Privileges, Goldpoints Plus, Coast Rewards, Shangri-La Golden Circle, Accor A|Club, Wyndham Rewards and Hertz Gold Plus Rewards.

Convert enough points to get:

  • 5,000 miles… and receive 1,000 bonus miles
  • 10,000 miles… and receive 2,000 bonus miles
  • 20,000 miles… and receive 4,000 bonus miles
  • 50,000 miles… and receive 10,000 bonus miles
  • 100,000 miles… and receive 25,000 bonus miles

The bonus can be earned once per program you’re converting points from.

This offer does help to counter July’s massive award chart devaluation, but the introduction of fuel surcharges does make the Aeroplan program far less attractive than it had been. I’ll be taking a pass.

  1. Okay…so I’ll be the first to ask, as it’s an inevitable question: having just received the email from Aeroplan touting this promotion, if I transfer over SPG points, do I get the SPG 5K bonus (for every 20K transferred) in addition to the bonus Aeroplan points. That is, if I transfer over 50K do I get the 10K from Aeroplan and the 10K from Starwood, essentially giving me 70K?

  2. @Robert if you transfer 40k SPG -> Aeroplan, that generates 50,000 Aeroplan points PLUS triggers the 10k bonus. So 40k SPG -> 60k Aeroplan with this offer.

  3. Note the up to 8 weeks for miles to post in the T&Cs:
    “Bonus miles will be credited into the member’s account by Aeroplan as each threshold is reached, and may take up to eight weeks from the date the member makes his/her request with the partner.”
