This week, I wrote about how AA had extended the transfer bonus on SPG points. I also mentioned how there was a better option available if you were transferring in higher point numbers. That was to transfer SPG points to Marriott and then transfer Marriott points using the Hotel + Air packages. Well, now you can earn a bonus on that as well!
Transfer Marriott Points to American Airlines with 30% Bonus
- To qualify for this AAdvantage® bonus mile offer, member must initiate the AAdvantage® mileage conversions with the Marriott Rewards® program between 12:00 a.m. CST, October 21, 2017 and 11:59 p.m. CST, December 5, 2017 (the “Promotion Period”), and be in good standing in the AAdvantage® program.
- Members can convert multiple times during the Promotion Period.
- To earn the 30% conversion bonus, member must convert points from the Marriott Rewards program. This offer is non-transferable and non-reversible.
- Bonus miles will be posted by American Airlines to the qualifying AAdvantage® member’s account within 7 business days after the initial conversion activity has been posted by Marriott Rewards. Bonus miles earned in this promotion do not count toward elite status qualification.
Important Edit: Thanks to a reader comment below for pointing this part out (not sure how I missed it!): Travel Packages: Points converted to AAdvantage miles as part of a Marriott Rewards/AAdvantage travel package do not qualify for this promotion. While the Marriott Hotel + Air package is a “travel” package, I am not sure if AA actually receives it coded differently than a regular mileage transfer. So, until I have some data points, I would suggest not transferring points through a Hotel + Air package for the sole reason of taking advantage of this transfer bonus. To find out more about the Hotel + Air package, check this post.
