This is a quick reminder that today is the last day to transfer your Starwood Preferred Guest points to American Airline miles OR US Airways miles with a 20% bonus. For those that like to earn SPG points for the sole reason to transfer to miles, this can be a great opportunity! Additionally, when you transfer SPG points to ANY airline you receive a 5,000 point bonus with every 20,000 points. So with this promotion, if you transfer 20,000 points you’ll receive a total of 30,000 American Airline or US Airways miles, which means a 50% bonus on your transfer!
Some things to know:
- The maximum amount you can transfer in a day is 99,999 points (including any bonus) – this means you can transfer a maximum of 60,000 points
- There is currently no maximum amount of points you can transfer during the promotional period
Is this a good promotion? While this is a great promotion for those that typically like to accrue Starpoints to transfer to airlines, I personally like saving my SPG points to use for hotels. I value my SPG points at at least 2 cents per value, so if transferring your points to one of these two airline programs gives you this value at a minimum then it could be worthwhile. Just note that Starwood points do NOT transfer immediately. But as long as you initiate the transfer today you’ll still receive the 20% bonus regardless of when they post to your account.
