There is like zero flights available on long weekends even 1 year out that's problem.
Also nothing to Alaska all summer long no matter which date. A little worrying sign they are intentionally not buying enough seats or any seats for certain more than average cost destinations.

Marriott conversion rate is 10,000 pts for 2000 miles = 5 to 1
SPG = 1 to 1

I believe the conversion rate between Marriott and SPG is 3.5 to 1. 35000 Marriott points = 10000 SPG points

So, it's better to convert with SPG than with Marriott.
35000 Marriott = 7000 miles + 35%
10000 SPG = = 10000 miles + 35%

Please correct me if my math is incorrect, I did this quickly.

I won't be converting anyways, I love using my Marriott points. Have 5 night booked on points at the JW in Muskoka in August. Can't wait!!!

AC is contracted to give Aeroplan x% of seat inventory. inventory is finite, yet points (on the books) continue to grow. Add to the fact that many folks are looking to burn their miles in case Aeroplan goes bankrupt.

AC will give more inventory (Priority Rewards) for top tier members, those that actually fly on AC.

*Edit* - Poster had ninja'd me :P

I'm wondering if converting is worth it. How valuable are Aeroplan compared to Marriott? I can get a hotel stay for 15,000. On the link it says the exchange rate is 10,000 Marriott for 2000 Aeroplan. .. not sure ..

This
Marriott has 5(hard to get) and 7 night packages. You redeem points by calling in. The package includes hotel nights and points for flights. Marriott link

Image

This is AC 7 night package. A 5 night package exists but you have to call. You then book a package such as Cat 6. Gets you a 7 night stay at a cat 6 Marriott. Also you will receive 120K miles towards your flights. Then using this transfer promo you will move the points into AE (at 1-1) and get a further 35%. 162000

If you transfer only Marriott hotel points the redemption rate is awful, 5 to 1.

Move the Marriott points to SPG (, then transfer to AE. The return would be better.
Using 60000 Marriott points as an example:
60000 to aeroplan = 12000 + 35%=16200

60000 to spg = 20000 spg
20000 spg to aeroplan = 25000 (includes spg 20% promo)
25000+ 35% =33750 aeroplan points.

That figure is 8% capacity... This is huge. Basicly 8% of all seats AC flies Aeroplan buys. Add the Star Alliance seats, the market fare seats, and you get a lot of availability. If you are flexible with dates there's usually something available to you.
