Through December 5, Aeroplan (Air Canada’s frequent flyer program) is offering some very nice transfer bonuses from all of their hotel partners and American Express. In my opinion Aeroplan miles are already the most valuable mileage currency, so any additional bonus is only a huge plus. If you convert points into the equivalent of 20,000 or more miles, you get a 5,000 point bonus. In other words, if you transfer 20,000 American Express Membership Rewards points, you get 25,000 Aeroplan miles, and if you transfer 20,000 Starwood points, you get 30,000 Aeroplan miles. They are also offering bonuses for smaller transfers — a transfer which equates to up to 9,999 Aeroplan miles earns a 1,000 mile bonus, and a transfer which equates to up to 19,999 Aeroplan miles earns a 2,000 mile bonus.
