Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) is not only a hotel chain, but you can also use their points to transfer to a multitude of airline partners.

starwoodtransferpartnersMost partners transfer at 1:1 rates, but normally if you transfer at least 20,000 SPG points, you get a 5,000 bonus.  So 20,000 Starwood points transfer into, say, 25,000 American AAdvantage miles.  But now, through July 31, you get an ADDITIONAL 20%, so 20,000 SPG points turn into 30,000 AAdvantage miles
