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.
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.
- 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.
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.
