    I've read reports in the past about Aeroplan offering 25% bonuses for transfers from AmEx MR.

    How regular are these promotions? Is it reasonable to expect one in 2011?

    I recall only one bonus for transfers from USA Membership Rewards to Aeroplan over the past several years. If your card is issued in Canada the pattern may be different. It's also possible that American Express will promote transfers to Aeroplan or other Star Alliance carriers more often after Continental leaves the program.

    This past december Aeroplan had a bonus for transferring in miles. A 25,000 MR transfer got a 5,000 point bonus, and a 20,000 SPG got the regular 5,000 bonus from SPG and a 5,000 bonus from Aeroplan. This happens occasionally towards the end of the year when they want extra revenue.
