Is Avion really good to fly from Toronto to the Far East. My aunt said yes but Jerry H says no as the flights on Cathay are very limited. Maybe my aunt has a more flexible schedule because she flies out on her own.
Make sure you're talking about the same thing. The RBC AvioN is basically a poor cashback card when used through their travel portal. AvioS is BA's currency.

Hey Crimsona, just so your list is complete, there was an Aeroplan bonus that ran from July 11 to August 15th this year. Same bonuses as the spring.

I guess it's safe to conclude RBC has ditched AA for the conversion promo?
No AA conversion promo since 2013...
3 years and counting.

Nov 7 to Dec 12 2016 (Hotels only, all miles combined for calculation)

Convert - bonus
2,500-99,999 +20%
100,000-199,999 +25%
200,000+ +30%

Has this been the best bonus (30% ) ever for transferring from hotels to Aeroplan? When can we expect it to come back?

Btw, this thread is awesome!

Yes, but if you really had that many Marriott and SPG points, you'd also have enough to transfer to alternative programs. United, AA, Alaska for Marriott travel packages, or Singapore Krisflyer and Korean airlines via SPG to fly first class on those airlines since they don't share with partners

My plan is for a cat-6 or cat-7 Marriott travel package for 7 nights in Hawaii, and get the Aeroplan points (+my own additional AP points) to pay for the flight from YYZ to HNL. I currently only collect Aeroplan, as I don't have existing points in any of other airlines, although I have an itch to churn for MBNA Alaska air (although they don't offer YYZ to anywhere).

I'm not in a hurry to get this trip done (probably next year) so I can wait for the 30% bonus in hotel -> Aeroplan transfer.
