IHG Hotels have now launched their bonus miles offer for British Airways Executive Club member stays until September 30, 2021.
Executive Club members can earn 1,000 bonus Avios for stays of a minimum of two nights. There is a maximum of 15,000 bonus Avios that can be earned from this offer.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that you must change your IHG Rewards earning preference from points to partner miles and have BA as your preferred one.
The terms state that you must book a specific partner rate, but the link on the T&Cs doesn’t resolve correctly (shows as expired), and the search box on this IHG/BA page returns “normal” rates that likely are not qualifying under this offer.
IHG sent us an updated link that now brings up the 1,000 bonus miles rates:
The bonus miles rate is exactly the same as the Best Flexible one.
You need to book a specific partner rate, read inflated, to earn the bonus miles if this BA offer works like the ones with all the other airlines. However, the “preferred” partner rate plan cannot be booked on this IHG/BA page; that must be an oversight. UPDATE: IHG has now updated the page and supplied us with the correct link.
If you have to book the preferred partner rate to earn the bonus Avios, then this promotion makes very little sense, and you end up paying dearly for the extra miles.
