American Express has a transfer bonus when you convert Membership Rewards points to Aeroplan Miles. This is a targeted offer, so it’s not showing up for everyone, but worth checking if you can make use of the miles.
Special Offer: Get 20% more Aeroplan Miles when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 12/10/17. 1000 Membership Rewards points =
1000 1200 Aeroplan® Miles
- Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.
- Redeem for this exclusive offer from 12:00 a.m. MT on November 10, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. MT on December 10, 2017, to receive 20% additional Aeroplan Miles.
This is a pretty good bonus that we rarely see from American Express. If you can make use or Aeroplan miles then check your accounts to see if you are targeted
Air Canada is a member of the StarAlliance so Aeroplan miles give you access to lots of carriers to many destinations. For 55,000 miles (46K Mr points now) you can fly one-way from Continental US and Canada to Europe in business class. You can also get good value on domestic U.S. and Canada round-trip flights for 25,000 (21K MR points now) miles where you’re allowed either one stopover or open jaw.
Just keep in mind that Air Canada will launch its own loyalty program in 2020, so don’t transfer points for long term plans.
