Do you have some spare hotel loyalty program points laying around? Or, are you looking to do something bigger with the hotel points you have accumulated?
Lucky for you, hotel rewards tend to be flexible and transferable to other programs.
And, if you want to use them towards some flights, Aeroplan has a deal for you to consider.
From now until September 22, 2019, when you transfer from 12 different hotel programs into Aeroplan, you can earn 30% bonus Aeroplan miles when you make a transfer.
So, you can put your hotel rewards towards getting some free miles and perhaps even a free flight out of it.

How does it work?
First, head over to this page for the offer.
On this page are links to the hotel programs transfer pages so you can send your points over to Aeroplan.
Which programs are eligible?
Here’s a table with each hotel program, the conversion rate, and how many hotel points you would need to get 25,000 Aeroplan miles – enough miles for a round trip Fixed Mileage flight within Canada and the Continental United States.
|Hotel Program||Transfer Rate – Hotel:Aeroplan||Hotel Points Required to Get 25,000 Aeroplan miles|
|Best Western Rewards||5:1||96,155|
|Le Club Accor||2:1||38,462|
Plan on transferring Marriott Bonvoy points? Transfer 60,000 points, and get the normal 25% conversion bonus from Marriott.
With an added 30% Aeroplan miles, that gives you 32,500 for making the conversion with the Aeroplan promotion, effectively turning the normal 3:1 conversion to almost 2:1.
A point to note – each program has a minimum amount of points to be transferred to Aeroplan.
A few of these programs are also running their own bonus miles promotions, on top of the Aeroplan offer.
Ends October 25th.
