If you transfer Starpoints (Starwood Preferred Guest points) to American Airlines AAdvantage miles in July, you will receive a 20% bonus on top of the extra 5,000 miles Starwood offers for transfers above 20,000 miles.
From July 1 through July 31, 2014, simply convert your Starpoints® to American Airlines AAdvantage miles and earn a 20% bonus. As always, for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred within the same transaction, SPG® will automatically add another 5,000 miles. With the additional 20% mileage bonus offered by the AAdvantage program, you will receive a total of 30,000 miles from the transaction.
20,000 Starpoints = 20,000 AAdvantage miles
Standard SPG bonus = 5,000 AAdvantage miles
AAdvantage 20% mileage bonus = 5,000 AAdvantage miles
Total = 30,000 AAdvantage miles
No need to start huge transfers to AAdvantage but if you have planned such a transfer you should do it this month as the transfer ends up as a 50% bonus on 20,000 points transferred.
Remember that AA has off-peak awards to South America – 20,000 miles will get you one-way all the way to the southern tip of South America from Aug 16th to Nov 30th.
