Aeroplan is a pretty good frequent flyer program. In fact they won program of the year at the Frequent Traveler awards, which I attended earlier this month. The reasons why I like them are that they have very flexible routing/ stopover rules and they have some gem awards. For example, a business class award from LAX to Frankfurt is only 80,000 miles (vs. 100-105k in most other programs).

So, when I saw this promo today, I thought it was a good deal. Basically, they will give you 5,000 extra miles when you transfer 20,000 from now until 12/5/2010. No registration necessary and you’ll get the bonus points within 6 weeks (which sucks if you are trying to book an award right away- I’ll update if that time is actually quicker).  Note- you can only get this bonus once per partner. So transferring two batches of 20,000 American Express Membership Rewards points will only yield you one 5,000 point bonus.
