Acquiring Miles & Points

How We Earned Our Hotel Points & Miles

We’ve been staying at Sheraton (SPG hotel) for almost 2 years.  Aside from the points we accumulate every night, we get an additional 500 points every day for registering at SPG’s Green Choice Program.  Basically, when you opt for a Green Choice, you will not have housekeeping for that day which is a very good deal if you’re low-maintenance like us.  You can get a maximum of 4 straight nights with Green Choice (last year it was only 3). So, that’s an additional of 6 x 500 = 3,000 points every week for us.

The SPG points are transferable to our Aeroplan miles. 1 SPG point = 1 Aeroplan mile.

Plus, for every 20,000 SPG points you transfer to Aeroplan, you get an additional 5,000 miles!

Through our accumulated points, we finally had the chance to ride in business class and first class.  We only had to pay for the tax which is really, really awesome.

  1. Great info – I have always dreamed of first class 🙂 I collect airmails (and have had several free trips from Canada to Europe), but I feel like the program has gone downhill in the last few years with all of the changes they have made. Plus booking hotels through them is never the most economical route.

      1. There are several different airmiles programs throughout the world, I believe. I am from Canada and I know the Canadian program is much different from the American one. I am not sure where you are from, but if you are from Canada, I always found the quickest way to collect airmiles was from Safeway and BMO. Safeway will often have deals, such as buy two of a product and receive 100 bonus miles.
