Starting tomorrow, Aeroplan is running a special conversion bonus promotion which allows members to convert Marriott Bonvoy™ points to Aeroplan with 35% bonus. The 35% conversion bonus is available for 7 days, for transfers made between June 20 and June 26, 2019 (23:59 EDT).
Convert Marriott Bonvoy™ points to Aeroplan with 35% bonus
Take note that the promotion is only for converting Marriott Bonvoy™ points (excludes other transfer partners) and does not begin until tomorrow, June 20. Only transactions done between June 20th and 26th will be eligible for the 35% bonus. Marriott Bonvoy™ points transfer to Aeroplan at 3:1 ratio. In addition to the 35% bonus, Marriott adds a 5K bonus miles on every 60K points transferred.
Readers that collect Cobalt MR points (Canada only) can also leverage this promotion and convert to Aeroplan – Cobalt MR points don’t transfer directly to airline miles, but they do transfer to Marriott at 5:6 ratio. Since the American Express Cobalt Card earns 5 points on the dollar, that’s essentially 6 Marriott points per dollar on the Cobalt card. Members can convert from Cobalt MR⇒Marriott⇒Aeroplan.
The process to convert from Marriott Bonvoy™ points to Aeroplan is very straight forward, as listed on the promotion page;
- Click “Convert now” below; then log in to your Marriott Bonvoy™ account
- Click the “Transfer Points” button
- Select Air Canada as your Frequent Flyer Program, add the amount of points you want to convert, and press “Continue”
- Click “Convert” to confirm; Aeroplan calculates your bonus based on the total miles earned by converting
