A few months ago, I wrote about an opportunity to get a 50% bonus on transferring Starwood SPG Points to American Airlines.  Normally if you transfer 20,000 SPG points to an airline, you are given a 25% bonus, so 20,000 SPG points turns into 25,000 airline miles.  Starwood is not only a hotel chain but also offers 1:1 transfers to many airlines such as American, Delta, and many more.

(SEE ALSO: Starwood Preferred Guest program)

For the duration of this promotion, American Airlines is giving an ADDITIONAL 5,000 miles for each 20,000 SPG points transferred, so 20,000 SPG points becomes 30,000 American AAdvantage airline miles (a 50% bonus)


SPG Bonus mile promotion ending soon

If you were on the fence about this promotion, or filed it away in the “Yeah I should do that” bucket, I am here to tell you that this promotion ENDS FRIDAY AUGUST 7TH AT 11:59 PM CENTRAL TIME.

If you’re following along, that’s this week!  So if you want to get an extra bonus on your Starwood to American Airlines transfer, act before Friday night.

You can read the full details of the promotion at the official promotion page.
