Aeroplan is once again offering a conversion bonus that is valid between July 27, 2015 and August 24, 2015. You can get up to 26.67% transfer bonus with this promotion.
The transfer reward partners include:
Hotels: Starwood Preferred Guest, Wyndham Rewards, Best Western Rewards, Choice Privileges, Coast Rewards, Club Carlson, Hilton HHonors, Marriott Rewards, Le Club Accorhotels (Accor hotels), and Golden Circle Award (Shangri-La Hotels).
Car Rentals: Hertz Gold Plus Rewards
Other: Diner’s Club Rewards, Points.com
Notably missing from the list, once again, is the American Express’ Membership Rewards program. Being absent for so long now, I do not plan to see the conversion bonus for a long while, if ever. Also note that CIBC’s Aventura program already discontinued its transfer option entirely to Aeroplan.
Also, in the past few bonus conversions, we have seen a maximum bonus of 25,000 Aeroplan miles for 100,000. The 40,000 maximum bonus miles is back when redeeming for 150,000.
Whenever you have hotel points that you do not intend to use any more, this a great opportunity to get some added value to your points. Personally I keep my hotel points because I tend to get more value redeeming my hotel points for hotel nights. That being said, as usual, you should always do your calculations first, to determine what makes more sense.
