Considering the poor value of aeroplan miles (due to devaluation of the program), it's better to focus on AA/BA. The exception being if you travel on *A regularly for work.

From what I understand of BA Avios, the program has been devalued significantly in the last year. In any case, this thread was more FYI than to debate which program was worse

Currently have 25,000 and rack up about 50,000 every year in RBC Avion points. Reading online forums it is not the best bang for the buck to use Avion points directly to pay for merchandise or flights.

When is the next RBC Avion to BA Avios 50% more points transfer promotion for 2012?
Is it still worth transferring with the new "devaluated" Avios point system? I know one of the drawbacks is seat availability, how can I check this ahead of time? (mock booking online or have to call their agent)?
I'm planning on a trip to Japan later this year need to know my best options.

I need help with my options please. Thanks in advance fellow deal addicts :)

RBC points does not expire... that's why it's good idea to accumulate a lot of RBC points before transferring it to a program, because once the points are in other programs ie. AA points or BA points, the expiry dates kicks in...

I never even knew that they had promotions to convert Amex rewards into Aeroplan, bring on the next bonus transfer

Great job on the research at top of the thread, thanks
