Bonus Aeroplan miles for converting hotel points

Through August 31, Aeroplan is offering 1,000 bonus miles when converting hotel points to anywhere between 5,000 and 19,999 Aeroplan miles, or 5,000 bonus miles when converting hotel points into 20,000 Aeroplan miles. Of course the timing of this couldn’t be worse for me, given that I converted SPG points into Aeroplan miles just last week.

Either way, this is a great deal. 20,000 SPG points, for example, would convert into 30,000 Aeroplan miles (SPG gives you a 5,000 mile bonus and now Aeroplan gives you a 5,000 mile bonus). Aeroplan miles are easily the most valuable miles of any Star Alliance program, between the favorable award chart, generous routing rules, and lack of fuel surcharges on Star Alliance awards.

  1. Is 70,000 Marriott points for 25,000 + 5,000 Aeroplan miles a good deal? I have no Air Canada miles currently but am a big United flier?

    Is there any expiration with AC miles?

  2. It’s tough to say, that’s probably borderline. If you were just topping off your account I’d say yes, but 30,000 Aeroplan miles as such aren’t worth all that much as far as premium international awards go, unless you have other plans to add miles to your account.
