Aeroplan has announced a 25% bonus on transfers from Hotel points to Aeroplan Miles. The promo is valid through April 16, 2018, so you have plenty of time to work out whether it is worth your while taking advantage of this promo, or see if you have better options.
- The promo is valid for transfers before 11:59 EDT April 16, 2018
- Earn 25% bonus on transfers from hotel programs
- A minimum of 5,000 Aeroplan Miles must be received to trigger the bonus
- Allow 4-6 weeks for your bonus miles to post to your account
One point to note is that Aeroplan put a caveat in their offer regarding Hotel Programs that have a hotel and flight package, like the Marriott Hotel + Air Packages. According to Aeroplan:
“Please note that some hotel loyalty programs have hotel and flight redemption packages where Aeroplan Miles are issued. It is at the discretion of each Hotel Program if these miles are deemed a conversion of points to miles or simply a bonus earned for the redemption.”
These packages combined with a transfer bonus can provide fantastic value, and Aeroplan tossed the ball into the hotel’s court over whether members would earn a bonus or not. Not surprisingly, Marriott has now added a point excluding Aeroplan Miles from these type of transfer bonuses.
With recent transfer bonuses of 35% and 30%, and the fact that it excludes Marriott Hotel + Air Packages, this promo is hardly earth-shattering. If you are looking to stock up on Aeroplan Miles, you are probably better off waiting until there is a more significant bonus. On the other hand, if you need the points immediately for a specific redemption, 25% is indeed better than nothing.
