Not a bad offer, but note that you need the hotel points to convert to at least 25k Aeroplan for you to be eligible for the 5k Aeroplan bonus.

hmm... 5K transferred gets 1K bonus, 10K gets 2K, 25K gets 5K.
....so 20% bonus.

I wonder if since Starwood gives you 25k for a 20k transfer, AC would give you the bonus 5k on top of that. That would be a decent transfer rate.

So if you transfer 20k from the spg site and recieve 25k AE into your AE account the offer for the extra 5k from AE will kick in?

I just happen to be right about 24k spg points and would love to know if I'd get the full 10k bonus for tranferring 20k.

To get 5,000 miles through this promotion you need to transfer 25,000 miles, not 20,000 miles.

So the answer to your question would be no.

But wouldn't Aeroplan "see" it as 25K coming in,
as SPG is the one that bumps it from 20 to 25 (I think?)
Plus the positive experience of the other poster.

Yet I best defer to Canadian based members...

You're incorrect. With SPG, any 20K transfer automatically gets bonused up to 25K when transferred to your Aeroplan account, triggering the 5K bonus as below:

Mar 27 2011 SPG CONVERSION BONUS -
3,000 miles


Mar 27 2011 SPG CONVERSION BONUS -
1,000 miles


Mar 27 2011 SPG CONVERSION BONUS -
1,000 miles

Mar 18 2011 STARWOOD PREFERRED GUEST - STARWOOD PREF GUEST
25,000 miles


It's a pretty sweet deal IMHO, if one has enough SPG points to burn.

Sorry - I had it in my head that it was Aeroplan that added the bonus, not SPG.

I only started working on Aeroplan account recently,
so this (basically 20%) bonus has occured before...

have there ever been bigger bonii (like from AMEX MR)
or is this as good as it gets, historically ??

Thanks !

Just to be clear, my example is ONLY for those of us that are SPG members.

This morning, I requested an online transfer of 20K SPG points to Aeroplan at 1:1 ratio and on the confirmation screen it displays a 5K SPG point bonus for a total of 25K transferred to Aeroplan.

This total meets the Aeroplan promotion threshold of 25K and will trigger the 5K Aeroplan bonus (albeit in a messy tiered bonus of 1K, 1K and 3K). So, for us SPG members that have 20K SPG points they are willing to part with, that's a 50% bonus. ^

Very true. I also did this with 20k spg points to Aeroplan in the last promotion and received the 5k from spg and another 5k from aeroplan for a total of 30k

Will be doing it also!

Wouldn't it be better to use Night & Flights II?

You do need 70,000 SPG points but you get 4 night at a category 4 hotel + 50,000 Aeroplan points
