IHG Rewards Club has a new offer for Air Canada Aeroplan program member stays between June 1 – July 31, 2019.
Aeroplan members can earn 50% bonus in top of the base miles earned for a maximum of 3,000 during the offer period.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
You normally earn 2 miles per USD spend at most IHG brands that is bonused to 3 during the offer period. The number of miles earned is bonused to 2 at Candlewood and Staybridge Suites hotels.
It makes sense for most to earn IHG Rewards Club points with bonuses instead of airline miles. You can later convert points to miles at 5:1 ratio. This offer only makes sense for those that don’t plan to stay at IHG hotels and would rather not strand any points in a program that they don’t use.
