    Just received an e-mail telling about getting an extra 20% this month on conversion of Starwood points into AAdvantage miles, so 20K Starpoints would get one 30K AA miles. (Convert 20K Starpoints for 20K AA miles, Starwood adds 5K miles, so normally one would receive 25K miles; 20% of 25K = an additional 5K, so a total of 30K.)

    May be targeted.

    I saw it on AA.com so it should be open to everyone!

    got the emails too from US Airways and AA, leaning towards keeping my SPG points at the moment, in considering that they are worth considerable value on C+P rates for lower Cat hotels or 5th night free..:p

    I would not do the transfer unless you need the miles right away. The SPG points are much more valuable.

    A SPG rep on flyertalk posted that the bonus does not apply to nights and flights

    I was kinda surprised to see this since Delta and SPG have their Crossover Rewards.
