IHG Rewards Club has launched a new bonus miles opportunity for Emirates Skywards member stays through March 31, 2021.
You can earn triple Emirates Skywards miles (6 or 3 depending on the IHG brand) if booked by December 31.
You can access and register for this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that you need to change your IHG earning preference from points to miles and choose to receive Emirates Skywards miles for every stay.
You usually earn 2 miles (6 under this offer) per USD at Regent, InterContinental, Kimpton, Hualuxe, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, EVEN, Voco, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, and avid Hotels.
The number of miles earned is halved to 1 mile (3 under this offer) per USD at Candlewood, Staybridge, and the Venetian/Palazzo in Las Vegas.
I would still choose to earn IHG Rewards Club points with bonuses that you can always later convert to airline miles.
This promotion perhaps can work for those that only have a random or two IHG stays and have no use for their hotel loyalty program points.
