Any way to get more than 1:1 aeroplan points from Amex point using one of these hotel conversions?
Sadly, I've never seen more than 1:1 from AMEX to aeroplan. Long time ago, maybe but not for the last 2 years.

I converted my Amex MR points to SPG. (2 MR points = 1 SPG)
I then converted my SPG to Marriot Rewards (1 SPG point = 3 Marriott Rewards points)
So for every 1 Amex MR point, you can convert to 1.5 Marriott points.

Marriott vacation packages include a 7-night stay and a generous amount of Aeroplan points (which receive the 30% bonus).

Worth a look if you are considering converting Amex MR to Aeroplan.

Wouldn't it be 26K ? 20,000 at 1:1 x 1.3 = 26,000

I don't see the value in AE points though... am I doing something wrong? I can find more value typically using the points at the place they're from. Maybe that's just me though :-/
Transferring 20k SPG to ae gets 20k + 5k bonus ae. The 5k bonus is from SPG. This is before the 30% bonus ae is offering.

It’s 20K + 5K SPG BONUS x 1.3 = 32.5K AE
Yes, after 20k SPG transfers to 25k ae, then add the 30% bonus, to get 32.5k ae.

FYI - if you read the last line of the offer, they have excluded the Marriot Vacation Packages this time.

I took advantage of the 35% bonus this summer and got 2 x 7-night Hotel Certificates, which was an incredible value, so I am very sad to see this exclusion this time...

It looks like Aeroplan is going to stop all future 7-night packages from getting the hotel transfer bonus. It's a big loss.

Anyone who still redeems the Marriott 7-night package - please report your datapoint on Aeroplan enforcing this. Thanks

If you're counting the 30% bonus for the upcoming trip, note that you may have to wait in January to show up.

"Bonus Aeroplan Miles may take up to 4-6 weeks to be credited after the promotional offer end date of December 11, 2017"

Hmm. Is ae still worth it?. I have like 160,000 points and the last time I tried looking for lights to fort Lauderdale, it suck, no classic option and if there was one, after taxes I wasn't saving much, if any, if you put a value on the points.

Can someone help me out with the best way to stay at a Hilton via points? I currently have MRP, AP & Expedia points. Can I take advantage of this bonus 30% for booking a Hilton?

I know I missed the bonus conversion from Amex points a few months ago, but how often does that happen? Is it only once a year?

Yes

-look for flight on carriers that dont charge crazy fees like Air Canada does. United, Swiss, Lufthansa even Brussels.

-we often compare prices with low cost carriers but don't account for additional fees

Curious what did you use all the Marriott Points on? I'm looking around at how to use the rest of my AMEX MR Points and debating converting them to Marriott through SPG....trying to find the best value right now.

Does anyone know if the bonus points show up at the same time the transferred points show up in your Aeroplan account?

EDIT: When in doubt, why not look at the T&Cs?

Did anyone get a Marriott 7-night package with Aeroplan miles during this Aeroplan 30% hotel transfer bonus promotion?

Did you get the 30% Aeroplan bonus on the Marriott 7-night package?

Or did Aeroplan enforce the exclusion of the 30% bonus from Marriott 7-night package like they said so in the terms and conditions?
