35% Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert Marriott Bonvoy points until June 26Aeroplan is pretty famous for their hotel transfer bonus promotions – we get to see them several times per year and now we have bonus one! Aeroplan has launched a week long hotel transfer bonus but this time it is only for transfers from one chain – Marriott Bonvoy. From today to June 26 when you convert Marriott Bonvoy points to Aeroplan you’ll receive a 35% bonus. If there is any hotel program to transfer points from it is Marriott and if there is a specific time to do it, it is now. In the revamp of Marriott’s program after taking over Starwood Preferred Guest they did retain one of the most beloved features of the now extinct SPG program and that is its transfer ratio to airline programs.

That means, in this case, for every 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points you convert Marriott will throw in an additional 5,000 miles.

Hopefully this is what we see happen to the new Air Canada Aeroplan program that is slated to come in 2020! The increase for premium seats is unfortuntaley an unwelcome devaluation…
