It’s really a good idea to read WebFlyer’s Notiflyer regularly. There’s a new one revealing a huge conversion bonus for moving Starwood point into British Airways miles.
- Through March 31, 2004, Executive Club members who convert Starwood Preferred Guest points into Executive Club miles will be able to do so at a 1:2 rate (one Starpoint converts to two BA miles), double the standard 1:1 conversion rate. What’s more, British Airways will also double the standard 5,000-mile bonus Starwood awards when transferring in 20,000-point increments, meaning a transfer of 20,000 Starpoints, which would normally convert to 25,000 Executive Club miles, will now convert to 50,000 miles.
In effect, this calculates to a 150 percent conversion bonus!
Before you rush to convert all your Starwood Preferred Guest points, be aware, British Airways has set a limit on the number of points that may be transferred during the promotional period at 99,999.
Still, at a conversion rate of 20,000:50,000, a transfer of 80,000 Starpoints would net you a cool 200,000 Executive Club miles.
The offer is valid for British Airways Executive Club members in the U.S. and Canada only.
