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 April 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.
