From today until September 17, Aeroplan will offer you a 35% bonus when you convert your points!

Here are some examples on what you’ll get when you convert with this offer:

For those of you with an SPG and Marriott account or the card, this is a great way for you to get an even bigger return on your spending.

With this offer, this now increases to 2.81%!

For those of you who like transferring your points to Aeroplan, now is the time to do it. And you better hurry, because this offer is only available until Monday.
