IHG Rewards Club has launched a new triple miles promotion for Air Canada Aeroplan members.
The offer is for 1,500 Aeroplan miles per stay between January 1 – April 15, 2017, and requires registration + choosing to earn miles instead of IHG Rewards Club points for your stay.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
You usually earn a flat 500 Aeroplan miles per stay that is tripled to 1,500 for the duration of this campaign.
Note that you cannot (most likely based on similar promotions previously) register for this offer if you have already done so for the Spring Accelerate offer (read more here).
This offer could make sense for inexpensive one night stays at IHG properties if you could switch between this and the Accelerate promo.
The T&Cs are unclear how many times you can actually use this offer. They state that you can earn a maximum of 7,500 bonus miles from this offer while the bonus is 1,000 per stay. I believe that someone copied and pasted the previous quadruple miles offer T&Cs and only updated the dates.
I believe that their intention has been to cap this offer for five stays that would earn total of 7,500 miles (2,500 base + 5,000 bonus).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Must be an IHG® Rewards Club member with Aeroplan miles as the chosen earning preference and must register their member number in advance to participate in “3X the miles” campaign.
