American Airlines Promotion

August 31st 2015 is your last chance to transfer you Starwood Points to AAdvantage Miles and get 20% bonus. Starwood points are one of the most valuable points programs and a lot of other points and travel experts value them at 2.2-2.4 cents apiece. They get such a huge value due to how flexible they are. You can essentially transfer Starwood Points to 34 partner airlines and they are the only transferable currency that you can convert to American Airlines.

 Normally, you can transfer Starwood Points to American Airlines at a 1:1 ratio and for every 20,000 points transferred you get an additional 5,000 miles bonus. Now, with American Airlines offering the additional 20% bonus that piles on top of the 5,000 bonus, you will get 30,000 AAdvantage Miles for every 20,000 SPG points transferred.

In addition to this amazing deal, American Express is currently running a promotion for an increased sign-up bonus on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card where you get 30,000 Starpoints after spending $3,000 in your first 3 months of membership.

Bottom Line:

This is an amazing deal if you have a redemption opportunity for the near future using AAdvantage Miles. Also, signing up for the increased sign-up bonus on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card is a great way to replenish the points you transfer.
