We see the first of RBC’s spring transfer bonus offers emerge this month. This one is for transfers to American AAdvantage and while it’s nice to have a 20% bonus it still doesn’t make up for the change in the conversion ratio we saw a few years ago. The transfer ratio to American AAdvantage is 1 RBC Reward Point = 0.7 American AAdvantage Miles (used to 1:1 back in the day) and with this bonus it jumps to 0.84 AAdvantage Miles per RBC Reward point. If and only if AAdvantage is your main frequent flyer program and you can use these miles to top off for an award (or get a full award at good value) would you want to convert your points. This offer is only available to Avion cardholders.
20% Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you convert RBC Rewards Points (Avion cardholders only) to American AAdvantage. Full details Until Apr 30, 19 For residents of Canada only
