Quick questions guys, when was the last promo for transferring Canadian AMEX MR to Aeroplan? Was there ever one?

Late 2012 or early 2013.

IOW, you'll have to hope that Homer Simpson works for Amex Canada, trips on his own shoelaces, smashes open the glass cover that guards the push button labelled "ACTIVATE MR > AEROPLAN CONVERSION BONUS" and depresses it with his errant elbow.  Dohhh!

Sorry. You probably wanted a quick answer. :|

I transferred about 150K Amex MR points to Aeroplan today. No regrets then.

Hopefully something like this will happen in 2020 when AC switches to their own program from Aeroplan.

You should have no regrets, other than if Aeroplan doesn't pan out with some good reward flights for you. Was this for boosting your balance to crank out a mini-RTW in biz or first class? Truth be told, I don't have confidence that Aeroplan or the new AC loyalty program will be as good as Aeroplan was, even just 6 months ago. I've seen a real downturn in the award inventory that I had been planning to book for one last final MRTW for next year. The value is always eroding away as time goes by. To think, just last year you could've converted 180K Amex MR into 90K SPG and thus into 270K Marriotts, redeemed for a travel package with a 7-nite Cat-5 e-certificate for Marriott hotels, and then requested the accompanying 120K airline points to go into Aeroplan, during the 35% conversion promo when it was still eligible for it, and this resulted in 162K Aeroplans. Regrets I didn't do that more than once.

This will be my last update - due to personal family circumstances, I haven't been utilizing these promos in years, and timely updates have suffered as a result. I've pasted the raw links in the post above for anybody that would like to take over and create a new thread, and I apologize for any that have been missed.

Safe travels to everybody, and best of luck on your award booking adventures. It's been a long nearly 7 years since I started this thread!

SO long... and thanks for all the fish. In the meantime, until another thread exists, I've just copied that information into the thread summary which anyone can edit. I don't know if you want to edit your OP to just refer to the thread summary or not.

Any thoughts RFDers?
I'd love to write history... in advance.

This has been a terrific thread. Crimsona will be missed. @atomiton Will you take the honour of starting a new thread? Or we just stick to this and move all updates to the thread summary, so everyone can edit.

I've made a new thread https://forums.redflagdeals.com/loyalty ... y-2245409/

updating the summary idea makes sense, very collaborative. Is this the direction we should move in? also happy to pass on or delete the thread I created or does someone else want to step up to maintain a thread? the mods will merge them.

thanks again for creating this and documenting years of promo history @crimsona !

You should have no regrets, other than if Aeroplan doesn't pan out with some good reward flights for you. Was this for boosting your balance to crank out a mini-RTW in biz or first class? Truth be told, I don't have confidence that Aeroplan or the new AC loyalty program will be as good as Aeroplan was, even just 6 months ago. I've seen a real downturn in the award inventory that I had been planning to book for one last final MRTW for next year. The value is always eroding away as time goes by. To think, just last year you could've converted 180K Amex MR into 90K SPG and thus into 270K Marriotts, redeemed for a travel package with a 7-nite Cat-5 e-certificate for Marriott hotels, and then requested the accompanying 120K airline points to go into Aeroplan, during the 35% conversion promo when it was still eligible for it, and this resulted in 162K Aeroplans. Regrets I didn't do that more than once.
That last bit sounds amazing actually. I wish those options were still there. I transferred 150K as it is time to churn.

If I were to transfer my Amex MR balance (150K) to Mariott Rewards (180K) and then to Aeroplan (60+15=75K) with a 30% bonus (97.5K), I am loosing about 40%!! How times have changed.

crimsona, thank you for your brevity in words, all the while being packed with many tips and info shared. Yours has often been the stable and level-headed voice when there have been turbulent and pandemonium in the churning threads. I'm certain I've learned more by reading many of your posted messages in my early years in this neighbourhood, than from others who only posted to get 'attention'. Quality, not quantity. Good luck with the situation in the home-front, and see you on the other side.

That was the best it ever got, requiring 'just' 180K Amex MR to get a 7-nite e-certificate and 120,000 airline points, because at that time they were including the Marriott points as part of Aeroplan's 35% hotels conversion promos, so it became 162,000 Aeroplans...but no more. Dead.

Today, if you wanted a somewhat equivalent 7-nite hotel certificate, it requires 330K Marriotts, but now it only offers 100K airline points as the bonus.

If i'm not mistaken, 330K Marriotts now require 275K Amex MR? Wow...what a devaluation, in this technique, and in my spirits. Fortuitously and fortunately, we redeemed for 8 hotel packages, during that brief 'good' window of opportunity.
