Air Canada’s Aeroplan program launched on September 9th a 30% conversion bonus for transferring points from hotel loyalty programs to Aeroplan that has new valid through date of September 25, 2019 (was extended by 3 days).
Aeroplan offers hotel points to miles conversion bonuses usually two to three times a year sometimes with up to 35% bonus.
You can access Aeroplan’s page for this offer here.
Here’s conversion example from Marriott to Aeroplan:
Remember that you can stack this promotion when transferring in 60,000 points increments as you get an additional 5,000 miles bonus making it 25,000 miles.
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 transfer from the following programs:
- Marriott Bonvoy
- IHG Rewards Club
- Hilton Honors
- Radisson Rewards
- Best Western Rewards
- Wyndham Rewards
- Coast Hotels
- Choice Privileges
- Le Club AccorHotels
- Shangri-La Golden Circle
Here’s information about the Radisson Rewards offer:
100,000 Radisson Rewards points would convert to 18,000 Aeroplan miles after the 80% conversion bonus (when both bonuses are factored in).
This is how it works:
This offer is good for those that can redeem for one of those mini RTWs that we have written about before (read more here).
Converting hotel points to airline miles can make sense if you don’t have use for free hotel nights and value airline awards especially in premium cabins more.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Bonus offer valid only on conversions received from eligible participating hotel partner loyalty programs points into Aeroplan Miles made between September 9th and September 25th, 2019 (23:59 EDT). Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be issued by Aeroplan as follows: once the total Aeroplan Miles are earned by exchanging points from any combination of eligible partner programs during the promotion, the bonus miles deposited will represent 30% of the total miles earned from the exchange. Bonus Aeroplan Miles may take up to 4‑6 weeks to be credited after the promotional offer end date of September 25, 2019.
While the conversion of Membership Rewards® points from American Express Card members accounts into Aeroplan Miles is still possible, it is not eligible for this bonus miles promotion.
Bonus Aeroplan Miles received from the exchange of hotel loyalty program points into Aeroplan Miles are not eligible for status in the Aeroplan program.
Please note that some hotel loyalty programs have hotel and flight redemption packages where Aeroplan Miles are issued. It is at the discretion of each Hotel Program if these miles are deemed a conversion of points to miles or simply a bonus earned for the redemption.
