The Chase Ultimate Rewards program has just launched its latest transfer bonus. This is in addition to Chase’s transfer bonus to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, which applies through November 12, 2022.

Of the major transferable points currencies, Chase Ultimate Rewards has historically had the fewest transfer bonuses. However, in the past year or so we’ve seen a significant increase in transfer bonuses, which is great.

Chase offering 30% Air Canada Aeroplan transfer bonus

Between November 1 and November 30, 2022, you can receive a 30% bonus when you transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Air Canada Aeroplan.

Chase is offering a 30% Aeroplan transfer bonus

This promotion is being offered on Chase’s end (in the United States), and is hard coded into the transfer ratio, meaning you should see the bonus at the time that you make the transfer. You can take advantage of this offer an unlimited number of times. Transfers from Chase to Air Canada Aeroplan are generally instant. This is the first time we’ve seen a transfer bonus from Chase Ultimate Rewards to Air Canada Aeroplan.

There are several great cards earning Chase Ultimate Rewards points, and it’s easy to combine points between the cards.

Also keep in mind that those with the Aeroplan® Credit Card (review) get a further bonus when transferring Ultimate Rewards points to Aeroplan, and these two offers stack:

  • This applies when transferring 50,000 or more Chase Ultimate Rewards points in one transaction
  • You can get a maximum of 25,000 bonus points per year this way
  • The 10% bonus points will post separately — the bonus points should post within 72 hours of the original transfer, but it can take up to seven days
  • This offer is currently valid through December 31, 2023 (so for two calendar years)

Should you transfer Chase points to Aeroplan?

Air Canada Aeroplan is one of my favorite programs for redeeming points, thanks to the huge number of airline partners, plus the ability to book stopovers even on one-way awards for just 5,000 additional points.

Aeroplan has fair award pricing, and not only gets you access to redemptions on all Star Alliance airlines, but also gets you access to a variety of otherwise unaligned airlines, including Air Mauritius, Etihad, Gulf Air, Oman Air, and many more.

While I usually prefer to transfer my Chase points to World of Hyatt and transfer my Amex points to Air Canada Aeroplan, with a 30% bonus I think this could very well be worth switching up my behavior over.

Bottom line

For the month of November, Chase Ultimate Rewards is offering a 30% bonus on points transfers to Air Canada Aeroplan. This is an excellent offer that I plan to take advantage of, given just how useful the Aeroplan program is for Star Alliance and other partner redemptions.

While we occasionally see transfer bonuses from Amex Membership Rewards to Aeroplan, it’s not usually 30%, so this is one of the best bonuses we’ve seen.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Chase Aeroplan transfer bonus?

    I did not have a duplicate post. I took the time to relate my recent success with Aeroplan and the post didn't go up because it said duplicate. my other post was a question. So don't post twice on the same day ?????

  2. Elaine I think Guest

    Admittedly I booked a year in advance on Aeroplan (unlike American and United 11 months) and I consider it a good thing when I have to overnight in Vienna, Milan or Toronto, not typical, but I got business class to Amman and back from Cairo ( then economy to Denver) for below 90,000 each way traveling main flight on air Canada and the short legs on Austrian and Egyptian. I feel like united is off the charts when I look.

  3. Elaine Guest

    So, has this transfer to Aeroplan worked for people? How about the extra 10 percent?

  4. Elaine Guest

    When I call chase they say that they don't know anything about these bonus points. I've called twice. Do I take a chance and transfer ,50,000 points in case this works?

  5. HML Guest

    I still see a few pieces of incorrect info such as the validity date of 12/23.

  6. Ron Guest

    Ben, if the bonus is hard coded into the transfer ratio then we should be able to transfer 39k UR points which will yield 50,700 Aeroplan miles and this in turn will trigger the 10% bonus for the Aeroplan Chase cardholer (additional 5,070 Aeroplan miles) in about a week's time. Correct?

  7. Jason Guest

    Maybe I'm missing something, but you have this heading: Chase offering 30% Virgin Atlantic transfer bonus

    Then all you talk about is the transfer bonus to Aeroplan, not mentioning Virgin Atlantic once in that section.

    What am I missing?

  8. MT Guest

    Ugh this comes 10 days after I transferred 140K points from Chase! I have had luck finding space to IST on Turkish through Aeroplan. Anyone looking to head to Europe could look into whether they can pull off something on Turkish with IST being a stopver?

    1. HML Guest

      I transferred 93K on the 27th :(

    2. HML Guest

      I got both the 30% bonus and 10% bonus - it was automatic!!!!

  9. TimR Guest

    I wonder if those with Chase Aeroplan card will get 10% stack on the transfer bonus

  10. Anthony Diamond

    Hell - checking a simple JFK to Vancouver redemption for skiing, I am seeing 115K to 143K or so on Air Canada's own metal in business class. Not seeing a ton of value here?

    1. Jules Guest

      The key is to search for Star Alliance partner redemptions with Aeroplan which have a fixed cost, rather than redeeming on Air Canada flights which are priced more "dynamically".

    2. Anthony Diamond

      The problem is saver/partner availability from EWR/JFK on United/Lufthansa to Europe (my main use of Star Alliance) is extremely hit or miss at this point. And if JFK/EWR to Canada flights aren't presenting a lot of value, not sure the transfer is worth it...

  11. Anthony Diamond

    Before I transfer, how good is United at releasing partner award space from EWR to Europe? A quick look on Aeroplan isn't promising in terms of availability. No use transferring over 50K UR points (turns into 70K) if the promised 60K redemptions from EWR to Europe are nonexistent...

  12. Anthony Diamond

    Does it make sense to speculatively transfer here? I already have too many Hyatt points. Sitting on about 100K UR. May transfer over 50K. I've never redeemed Aeroplan...

  13. Tony Guest

    Since Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to a spouse or joint business owner's account, who should be having the Chase Aeroplan card in order to get the additional 10% transfer bonus? The owner of the Ultimate Rewards points or the spouse/joint business owner whose account the points are transferred into?

    1. Luis Guest

      The account whose points are transferred into would be my guess

  14. Bob Guest

    Coming soon: Aeroplan deval

    After the deval this September didnt really upset anyone, they ll continue to chip away at it

    1. Rafa Guest

      It is more than certain.

      Anyway, I had no luck redeeming through Aeroplan US to Europe. Had better luck on United.
