Limited Time 20% Bonus on American Airlines Transfers From Starwood Preferred Guest

Starwood Preferred Guest and American Airlines are offering a limited time bonus on transfers.

If you don’t travel for a living or generate a ton of points from credit card spending, you should always consider bonuses like these when they come up. It doesn’t mean you should definitely transfer, since you can’t transfer them back for anywhere near the same value in most cases. But, if you’re playing the game and trying to get the most out of limited spending, transfer bonuses like these can represent a great way to accelerate your earning to your next vacation.
