Earn a Bonus of Up to 30 Percent When You Convert Starpoints to AAdvantage Miles

In addition to the standard bonus offered by Starwood Preferred Guest of 5,000 Starpoints when you convert a minimum of 20,000 Starpoints to American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles in one transaction, you will also earn a bonus of up to 30 percent on each conversion through Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 11:59 in the evening Central Daylight Time.

Members of the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program may transfer up to 79,999 Starpoints per transaction per program within a 24-hour period to the American Airlines AAdvantage program — which means that up to a maximum of 94,999 Starpoints can be transferred into your AAdvantage account — but you can convert Starpoints to AAdvantage miles multiple times during the promotion period.

Earn a Bonus of Up to 30 Percent When You Convert Starpoints to AAdvantage Miles

To qualify for this offer — which is not transferable and cannot be reversed, as airline transfers are one-way and cannot be refunded or reversed — you must initiate the AAdvantage mileage conversions with the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program and be in good standing in the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program. You may convert your Starpoints into AAdvantage miles multiple times during the promotion period.

To earn the conversion bonus of up to 30 percent, you must convert Starpoints into AAdvantage miles — and…

Terms and Conditions

Bonus miles will be posted by American Airlines to your qualifying AAdvantage account within seven business days after the initial conversion activity has been posted by Starwood Preferred Guest. Bonus miles earned in this promotion do not count toward elite status qualification.

Only one airline transfer transaction per member, per airline frequent flier loyalty program, is permitted within a 24-hour period. Additionally, your name must be identical on both accounts in order to complete the transfer request, as different names will cause the transfer to be rejected.

There is no minimum Starpoint transfer requirement for Platinum elite status level members. Gold elite status level members have a minimum transfer requirement of 1,500 Starpoints; and Preferred level members have a minimum transfer requirement of 2,500 Starpoints.

Maximum limits on transfers are based on a combination of your Starpoints and the Starwood Preferred Guest airline transfer transaction bonus. Only one airline transfer transaction per member per program per 24 hour period is allowed; multiple transfer transactions within the same 24 hour period will be rejected.

Other terms and conditions apply.

Summary

This promotion is better than this otherwise identical offer from last year because of the additional 10,000 AAdvantage miles for every 100,000 AAdvantage miles received from conversions.

If you are looking for a quick way to build up AAdvantage miles in your account and you value them more than Starpoints, then this promotion could be a good deal for you…

…but because I value Starpoints more than AAdvantage miles, I do not intend to participate in this offer.

    “and because 30 percent of 25,000 = 5,000”
    Did you mean to write 20 percent here?

      Thank you for catching that error, Abdul. I appreciate it.

      It has now been corrected.
