Out of these partners, the best options for building Aeroplan Points will be through AMEX Canada's Membership Reward Program and Marriott Bonvoy.

AMEX Points To Aeroplan Points

American Express Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to Aeroplan at a 1:1 ratio meaning that 1,000 AMEX Points can be converted into 1,000 Aeroplan points.

American Expresss offers a handful of credit cards that feature high intro bonuses along with great earning rates on everyday spending and travel.

Best For Flexible Business Travel Rewards

Marriott Bonvoy Points

Marriott Bonvoy Points can be transferred to Aeroplan at a 3:1 ratio. This means that every 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points you transfer to Aeroplan will give you 1,000 Aeroplan Points. Due to the amount of points you can earn with Marriott, this is one of the best hotel rewards programs for transferring points to not just Aeroplan, but all of their 40+ partners.

On top of a great transfer ratio, Marriott will throw in 15,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy Points (equal to 5,000 miles due to the 3:1 ratio) for every 60,000 points you transfer. This adds even more value and I recommend trying to transfer in blocks of 60,000 points when possible.
