Double BA Miles for Starwood Conversions

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.
