Bonus for Transferring Points to Aeroplan

Aeroplan is offering bonus points for transfers from hotel programs, car rental programs, and through September 9. Registration required.

The total points you transfer in during the promotion period determines your bonus:

  • 5000 Aeroplan miles = 1000 bonus miles
  • 10,000 Aeroplan miles = 2000 bonus miles
  • 20,000 Aeroplan miles = 4000 bonus miles
  • 50,000 Aeroplan miles = 10,000 bonus miles

Bonus miles post 7-10 days after reaching the required threshold.

They offered a similar bonus in late spring, but with options to earn up to 40,000 bonus miles for transfers in of 150,000 miles.

Under this promotion 40,000 Starwood points yield 60,000 Aeroplan miles. Good, but not quite good enough in most cases since Aeroplan gutted their reward chart and began adding fuel surcharges to most partner awards.

  1. Actually, it could be somewhat good with Starpoints (if people are not planning on using them for hotel stays) since 40,000 Starpoints under this promo would equal 75,000 Aeroplan miles (because of the 5,000 bonus miles for every 20,000). Does that sound right or am I missing something?

  2. You used to get a 5K bonus for 20K mile transfers. Besides, since Aeroplan pesos have been so de-valued (gutting of award chart, fuel scam charges on partner airlines) I doubt a lot of people will take advantage of this – much better FF programs out there to transfer into.
