IHG Rewards Club and ANA have changed how Mileage Club members earn miles for their stays at IHG affiliated hotels effective August 1, 2019.
Previously, IHG offered a flat number of miles with many of its airline partners but it has slowly moved away from this to a revenue based model (usually two miles per USD).
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
ANA Mileage Club members have earned flat 500 miles per stay regardless of the expense. Now, this has been changed to 3 miles per 1 USD (2 miles per USD with most other partners).
Note that you must change your IHG Rewards Club earning preference from points to miles, and that may affect your ability to participate in various promotional bonus points offers.
Not taking any promotional bonus points opportunities into account, one could argue that 1 ANA Mileage Club mile is worth more than 3.3 IHG Rewards Club points after all recent devaluations.
The only problem is that if you switch your earning preference to miles it will likely disqualify the members from most bonus points promotions.
Here are the terms and conditions of this partnership:
ANA Members who perform Qualifying Activities at Participating Locations shall be awarded AMC miles in the following manger:
(a) Qualifying Activity at hotels with the following brands shall earn 3 Base Miles per $1 USD:
InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, Regent® Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton® Hotels and Restaurants, HUALUXE® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, voco™, Hotel Indigo®, EVEN® Hotels, avid™ hotels, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Holiday Inn Resorts® and Holiday Inn Club Vacations®
(b) Qualifying Activity at Staybridge Suites®, Candlewood Suites® and The Venetian | Palazzo Las Vegas hotels shall earn 1 Base Mile per $1 USD.
To earn points and miles, please register for the IHG Rewards Club (even if ANA Card and ANA Mileage Club Card members are required to join IHG Reward Club to earn miles.) Members are required to select the option to earn miles to start earning miles.
