The Deal

SimplyMiles is offering bonus miles for IHG hotels & resorts spend. Note that these offers are targeted, so you may not see all of the same offers and/or may see differing payouts. Here’s what we’ve seen:

Spend $100 & earn 875 miles at:

  • Even Hotels
  • Holiday Inn Resort
  • Holiday Inn
  • Staybridge Suites
  • Holiday Inn Express
  • Candlewood Suites

Spend $200 & earn 2,150 miles at:

  • Hotel Indigo
  • Kimpton
  • Crowne Plaza
  • InterContinental

Key Terms

Here are the terms from the IHG Hotels & Resorts offer:

  • Enrollment limited.
  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued Mastercard Credit Cards are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card and 1 redemption per Card Member.
  • Offer valid at IHG Hotels & Resorts properties in the US. Reservations must be made directly with IHG Hotels & Resorts via ihg.com.
  • *Offer only valid on room rate and room charges during promotion timeframe 4/09/2021 to 5/31/2021 6/01/2021 to 7/31/2021 9/30/21 to 11/30/21 and is non-transferable.

Quick Thoughts

If you’ll be paying for an IHG stay during the period of validity, you may as well sync these offers up and take advantage of some bonus miles. I’m not positive whether the generic “IHG Hotels & Resorts” offer will stack with the other brand offers. For example, if you sync that offer and the Kimpton offer and you spend $200 at a Kimpton, will you get 3,150 miles? I’m not sure, but it’s worth a shot.

Again, these offers can be targeted. I did not have offers for Even hotels or Intercontinental, whereas Stephen did. YMMV.

Note that SimplyMiles offers link to Mastercards only. Since the IHG credit cards are Mastercards, it would make the most sense to link these to an IHG credit card to earn the bonus miles while also earning a good return for IHG spend.

Would doing a points and cash booking trigger this (or the Kimpton AMEX) offer, or is the cash part of the booking processed through points.com instead of the IHG website and therefore ineligible?


Which would be more valuable to use for this: the IHG or Chase Double Cash (linked to Citi Premier)?


Do IHG individual locations sell gift cards?


Nick? You’re always great about responding so I figured maybe my question slipped through the cracks.


Wow, tough crowd. I’m not sure if they’re unhappy with my question or disagree that you’re great about responding. Maybe both.
