Aeroplan Conversion Promotion

Announcing our biggest conversion promotion yet! From November 21 to December 12, 2011, convert points to Aeroplan Miles from a wide selection of loyalty programs from partners like American Express®, Marriott Rewards, SPG and more for unparalleled bonus rewards. Since each bonus is per partner, keep converting to maximize your earning opportunities.


5,000 - 1,000 bonus
10,000 - 2,000 bonus
20,000 - 4,000 bonus
50,000 - 10,000 bonus

Of course I converted 50k points from Amex in October.

Emails from AE just arriving. Of course under the circumstances who'd want 20% more AE miles?

Just got this e-mail.

They advertise the bonus/per partner as a benefit, whereas it actually makes it harder to hit the bigger bonuses. Oh how I love Aeroplan marketing speak.

I converted 20,000 SPG points to 30,000 AE miles on the last promo and I still regret it.

Got it.

BTW, IIRC last year was 25% extra and this time is only 20%?

I got an email that 100K would get a 25K bonus as well, so that's 25%.

I do not know when, but within the last 4 - 6 weeks, Priority Club Rewards can no longer convert over to AEROPLAN directly. Only via points.com now. I could have hit the 100,000 transfer if I want to with the old rate. The new rate over points.com sucks. Thought to just do a small amount to get some bonus.

Hi all,
This is my first year with AMEX MR. I have just over 30000 points now. If I convert 20000 points now (for 4000 point bonus), and convert 10000 points next week, will I get an additional 2000 points or do they count the total points converted at the end of the promotion to determine how many bonus miles they give you?

Thanks!

Look like they might treat "AMEX MR - Canada" and "AMEX MR - US" as 2 different Partners, since they listed as 2 separate items. Can anyone else comment on this?

From the fine print, it is the total within this promo period
