Via Notiflyer, between May 21 and June 18 Aeroplan is offering up to 40,000 bonus miles for transferring points in from other programs (excluding the U.S. American Express Membership Rewards program).
The bonus isn’t per transaction or per partner, it’s cumulative — the more points you transfer in from various sources, the more total bonus points you earn.
Eligible partners are:
- Credit card programs: CIBC Aventura World MasterCard Card, CIBC Aventura Gold Visa, CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite, CIBC Aventura MasterCard Card, American Express Membership Rewards – Canada, BankAmericard Power Rewards credit card, Diners Club Club Rewards
- Hotel programs: Starwood Preferred Guest, Hilton HHonors, Marriott Rewards, Wyndham Rewards, Best Western Rewards, Choice Privileges, Coast Rewards, Club Carlson, Le Club Accorhotels, Shangri-La Golden Circle Award
- Car rental: Hertz Gold Plus Rewards
- Other: Points.com
The highest yield points transfer partner with most programs is usually Starwood. Every 20,000 miles transferred into an airline account generates a 5000 mile bonus. So 80,000 Starwood points yields 100,000 Aeroplan miles. With this bonus, 80,000 Starwood points would mean 125,000 Aeroplan miles.
Of course this offer would have been far more valuable a year ago, before Aeroplan gutted their reward chart and before they began adding fuel surcharges to most partner awards.
Still, 125,000 Aeroplan points is enough for a first class award from North America to parts of Europe or enough or business class to most of Asia (as far south as Singapore).
Bonus points should be added 7-10 days after the requisite miles have been received in an Aeroplan account.
