Great redemptions! I'm waiting for the RBC Avion to Avios promo, hopefully 50% bonus. Alaska is flying out of Everett WA next fall, hopefully some warm destinations

Have you done this transfer before? I just got the RBC Avion card and want to do take advantage of the 50% bonus transfer too. Do I need to sign up an Avios account beforehand or does that come with the RBC Avion card?

You need to create a British Airways Executive Club account, as it is BA that is the transfer partner, not Avios. Once they are in your BA account, you can transfer them to your AerLingus, Iberia or Avios accounts free of charge if you so desire.
RBC Avion cardholders± and clients who hold other eligible RBC Royal Bank products or services that earn RBC Rewards points†, have the option of converting their RBC Rewards points to Avios¥. The world-renowned British Airways‡ Executive Club offers redemptions for all classes of airline tickets including business class, with no maximum ticket prices on redemptions.
You must be a member of the British Airways Executive Club‡ in order to convert your points. For enrolment information, visit British Airways online at www.ba.com/theclub.
Convert your points in just three easy steps:
Enrol: Join British Airways Executive Club - visit www.ba.com/theclub.
Convert: Convert a minimum of 10,000 RBC Rewards points into Avios below or by calling us at 1-800 ROYAL® 1-2 ( 1-800-769-2512). If you're a commercial cardholder, please call 1-888 ROYAL® 3-4 (1-888-769-2534).
Redeem: Redeem your Avios by calling British Airways at 1-800-452-1201 or online at www.ba.com .
Please allow 72 hours to ensure that your British Airways Executive Club member number has been activated.

When you transfer your RBC Rewards to your BA account. (You don't have to call in -- just put in your BA account number in RBC's Rewards website, and when you get the avios in your BA account, the bonus will be there as well.)

There's no need to transfer your avios from your BA account to an Avios account -- you only need to do that if if you want to transfer avios to AerLingus or Iberia (both of them, along with BA, use avios as their loyalty currency).

I don't know if you can transfer from two RBC Rewards accounts to one BA account. (It doesn't ask for your name, only the number, so who knows, it may be possible -- maybe some who's tried it can chime in).

Please note that some hotel loyalty programs have hotel and flight redemption packages where Aeroplan Miles are issued. It is at the discretion of each Hotel Program if these miles are deemed a conversion of points to miles or simply a bonus earned for the redemption.

Yes, I noticed that. Waiting for a data point before I commit. Fingers crossed!

According to reddit, Marriott mentions this on their site: "*Bonus miles from Aeroplan (Air Canada) offers are not applicable."
