Convert SPG to AA with 50% bonus
As you probably know, whenever you convert the highly valuable SPG starpoints to an airline you get a 5000 point bonus for every 20,000 transferred. There are a few exceptions to this rule ( the airlines that don’t transfer 1:1), but for this deal that’s the case. What makes this deal even better is that SPG and AA are running a promotion whereby you get an additional 20% on top of the original 25% bonus…that means when you convert SPG to AA with a 50% bonus you’d get 30k AA for every 20k SPG transferred.
- Convert 20k SPG to AA
- SPG will give you a 5k bonus on the transfer
- AA will give you a bonus on the total transfer amount (25k) = 5k
- For every 20k SPG you transfer you will be 30k AA
