Question:
I currently have 67.147 starwood points, is it worth it to transfer all of them in AA? or transfer 60.000 and wait till I get another 20.000?
I wont be hitting 20.000 by June 30th.
Thanks.

It's almost never worth transferring without the 5K bonus in my opinion, unless you absolutely need the extra points.

If I'm not mistaken he will get 35% bonus on the 7.147 pts, as oppossed to waiting till he makes 20.000 and then getting only 25% on them.
Dan, please correct me if I'm wrong...

That is correct. So if youre not going to get to the next 20k before the end of the promo transfer now, 35% is more than the 5k bonus (25%)

It has been mentioned that as long as the transfer is initiated by the 30th it is eligible for the bonus. Does that mean until midnight or is there a specific time? Secondly, does anyone know which timezone they follow?

To be safe I'd assume 11:59pm eastern time.

       My starwood transfer came through to AA today with out the 35 % bonus. Last week it came through on Sun with the 35 % bonus. I know it says it will take time. I was just wondering if anyone else had this.

Yes, that's just how it posted this week.
Give it another week or so.

when would be the latest someone could initiate the transfer from starwood to AA, would it be 1159pm june 29 or must one take in consideration that spg doesnt transfer right away and if one does it  so close to the deadlline he wont get the points?

Only the initiation has to be before the deadline.

To be safe I'd recommend people transfer early on the 30th to avoid an issue. Why wait till 11:59pm?

And many of you will only see the transfer (75,000 or 50,000 or 25,000) but will not see the bonus. A"A will post it within the week, or by next monday the latest.

A"A has also confirmed that even if the points actually only get transferred after the 30th, as long as you transferred them with SPG on or before the 30th, you'll be fine.

I did the 40,000 (50,000) transfer over a week ago, and the bonus posted the same day as the 50,000 miles.

My wife did the transfer last week (from her SPG to her AA) and the 50,000 posted on 6/25 but the bonus did not post.

Should we be concerned?

(her AA still goes under her maiden name, while the starwood goes under her married name)
