Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) and American Airlines have teamed up on the latest promotion offering a 20% bonus when transferring Starpoints to AAdvantage miles. This 20% Starwood Preferred Guest bonus can also be stacked with the standard offer from Starwood for bulk point transfers.
When both of the promotions are stacked you will receive a 50% bonus on transfers from SPG to American Airlines. To receive the 50% bonus transfers need to be completed in blocks of 20,000 Starpoints. This would qualify for the standard offer from Starwood of an extra 5,000 points for transfers 20,000 so you would receive 25,000 + the current promotion. You would actually receive a total of 30,000 AAdvantage miles for 20,000 Starpoints (20,000 Starpoints + 5,000 Starpoints + 20% bonus = 30,000 AAdvantage miles).
If you are considering transfer Starpoints for AAdvantage miles then it’s worth noting that you can put AAdvantage awards on hold for up to 5 days even if you don’t have any miles in your account. This would allow time for the Starpoints to be transferred across in your American Airlines account.
There is no minimum Starpoints transfer requirement for Platinum members. Gold members have a minimum transfer requirement of 1500 Starpoints, and Preferred members have a minimum transfer requirement of 2500 Starpoints.
Offer ends 14th September 2016.
