While SPG points are extremely valuable for hotel stays, they also transfer nicely to many partner airline partners. Typically, the points transfer at a 1:1 ratio (for most airlines, but not all), but through END OF DAY TODAY, October 15, 2017, you can transfer your points to American Airlines with a nice bonus.
- Earn 20% bonus with each conversion
- Earn an additional 10,000 AAdvantage® miles for every 100,000 AAdvantage® miles received from conversions.
That gives you up to a 30% bonus! As always, you’ll receive a 5,000 point bonus for every 20,000 points transferred.
This is actually a great transfer value, but it depends on how you like to redeem your points. Once you transfer though, you’ll no longer be able to transfer back and will be locked into AA. While this is a great opportunity for those looking to redeem for a free flight on American, I personally would not transfer points speculatively.
