Aeroplan announced a promotion where you will receive a 35% bonus on Marriott Rewards transfers to Aeroplan. If you want to take advantage of this promotion, you will have to hurry since it only runs through September 17, 2018.
- The promotion is valid for transfers through September 17, 2018, 11:59 PM EDT
- Receive a 35% bonus on transfers
- The promotion does not apply to points transferred via a Marriott Rewards Hotel + Air Travel package
- Allow 4-6 weeks for the points to post to your account
Maximizing The Transfer
Currently, you can transfer Marriott points to Aeroplan at a ratio of 3:1. Transferring 30,000 points would yield 10,000 Aeroplan miles. However, Marriott offers a bonus of 5,000 miles when you transfer 60,000 points, so transferring 60,000 points would give you 25,000 miles. This works out as a ratio of 2.4:1.
If you are going to take advantage of the promotion, transferring 60,000 points would give you 33,750 Aeroplan miles. This works out at a ratio of 1.77:1. When compared to the standard ratio, or the improved ratio (with the 60,000-point transfer), this still represents pretty decent value for your Marriott points.
If you have a specific redemption in mind with Air Canada or one of its Star Alliance partners, this promotion could be worth some serious thought. Remember if you have some unconfirmed travel plans it is always worth checking out some of Aeroplan’s sweet spots. With some proper planning, you can sidestep some fuel surcharges and more.
