I have always wondered how long it takes to transfer Starwood Points to Aeroplan Miles.
With Aeroplan, you can transfer up to 79,999 of your Starpoints® into Aeroplan miles at a 1-to-1 ratio. And for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred within the same transaction, you’ll earn 5,000 bonus Starpoints which will be automatically added to your transfer up to a maximum of 94,999 miles per eligible transfer.
There is no minimum point transfer requirement for Platinum members. Gold members have a minimum point transfer of 1,500 Starpoints and Preferred members have a minimum point transfer of 2,500.
Transfer maximums are based on a combination of member Starpoints and the Starwood Preferred Guest airline transfer transaction bonus. Only one airline transfer transaction per member per program per 24 hour period is allowed; multiple transfer transactions within the same 24 hour period will reject. Both the Starwood Preferred Guest and airline frequent flyer program accounts must have identical member names in order to complete this request; different names will cause the transfer to reject.
Well it takes less than 2 business days!
I tried to transfer online but I was not successful so I transferred 20,0o0 online and asked a great SPG rep to transfer the rest!
Your mileage may vary – make sure the names match the accounts and verify all the numbers.
