IHG has now launched a bonus miles offer for Emirates Skywards members. The same promotion is or has been available with several other airlines.
Skywards members earn 1,000 bonus miles for each stay minimum of two nights through December 31, 2022, if booked August 1 – 31.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.

The terms state that this offer is available at all IHG-affiliated hotels, and there is a maximum of 15,000 bonus miles that you can earn.
You must change IHG One Rewards earning preference from points to miles and have Emirates Skywards selected as the preferred conversion partner.
There are no remarks on the terms and conditions that you should book a specific rate to earn the bonus miles, but the booking bar on this page indicates so. No “Emirates Bonus Miles” eligible hotels are available through this search.
Another confusing bonus miles offer with conflicting terms and booking box.
If you need to book a specific bonus miles rate to be eligible for the 1,000 extra miles, this offer makes no sense.
In general, it doesn’t make sense to earn miles for hotel stays unless bonus miles are offered, and your qualifying hotel spend is low (you would earn a few points).
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
• Emirates Skywards members need to be registered as an IHG One Rewards member, and select Skywards Miles as their earning preference located in their IHG One Rewards My Account, prior to check-in.
