Marriott / SPG elite benefits guarantee

My general view of Marriott & SPG’s combined elite program (assuming they ever get it to work as promised) is that Marriott elites now have better benefits than before, while SPG elites have slightly worse benefits than before.  That said, there’s one significant way in which SPG elites are better off than before: Marriott’s elite benefits guarantee. One of the most interesting aspects of the Marriott Rewards (and now SPG) program is that they guarantee…

(EXPIRED) 35% transfer bonus from Marriott to Aeroplan miles

Starting tomorrow, Aeroplan will be offering a 35% transfer bonus on miles transferred from Marriott Rewards. That can be a solid deal if you have a good redemption in mind.
