Through December 17 Aeroplan is offering up to a 25% bonus when converting points from other programs into their miles.
Points converted from hotel programs, credit card programs, points.com, and car rental programs all add together and the total number of miles moved over to Aeroplan during the promotion period determine the bonus you earn.
- Financial: CIBC, BankofAmerica, Diners Club Club Rewards
- Hotels: Starwood, Marriott, Hilton, Club Carlson, Best Western, Wyndham, Choice, Accor, Coast Rewards, Shangri-La
- Car Rental: Hertz
- Other: Points.com
American Express Membership Rewards transfers don’t count for the promotion. Whenever Aeroplan runs similar offers, and it happens not infrequently, they exclude Amex from the bonus.
For points.com, only conversion from a member’s mileage account with another program into Aeroplan will count, trade transactions with someone else do not count for the bonus.
Last year Aeroplan started adding fuel surcharges to many awards and massively increased the price of many awards as well. So I don’t love the program like I used to. But for folks with Aeroplan balances this can be helpful for topping off.
