As originally posted, 

Earn more miles toward your next trip with the American Airlines AAdvantage® and Starwood Preferred Guest® programs.

From July 1 through August 7, 2015, (Now through August 31, 2015) convert your Starpoints® to AAdvantage miles and earn a 20% bonus on the amount of AAdvantage miles you receive from the conversion.

Additional 20% Bonus Transfer SPG Points To AAdvantage Miles

As always, for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred within the same transaction, SPG® will automatically add another 5,000 Starpoints.

With the additional 20% mileage bonus offered by the AAdvantage program, you’ll receive 30,000 miles from the transaction.

Here’s the math:

20,000 Starpoints = 20,000 AAdvantage miles
5,000 Standard SPG bonus = 5,000 AAdvantage miles
AAdvantage 20% mileage bonus = 5,000 AAdvantage miles
Total = 30,000 AAdvantage miles

Converting your Starpoints into AAdvantage miles will bring you closer to reaching your dream destination faster. American has a great and very reasonable award chart, so if you have your sights set on a trip, you might want to consider transferring some SPG points for this additional bonus.

  • Only one airline transfer transaction per member per 24 hour period
