If you have a cheap one night stay at a Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express property that costs $100 or just over, earning 930 AAdvantage miles as well as 930 Loyalty Points is great return.
This offer will definitely stack with cashback from a shopping portal. Beyond that, it might be possible to stack this with a couple of other earning opportunities, but the terms suggest that’s not guaranteed.
One possible opportunity is the set of Chase Offers for IHG brands which includes Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. If you get those on an IHG card, you’ll be able to link that payment card to SimplyMiles as those are Mastercards unlike most of Chase’s other credit cards.
IHG cards also earn 5x or 10x IHG One Rewards points per dollar when paying for stays at IHG properties depending on which IHG card(s) you have.
These latter two earning opportunities aren’t guaranteed though due to some wording in the terms for the SimplyMiles offer. One line states that “Only U.S.-issued Citi Mastercard Credit Cards are eligible.” If that’s actually enforced, IHG credit cards and/or Chase Offers won’t be eligible seeing as those aren’t Citi cards. I know there’s been this Citi-specific wording on at least some SimplyMiles offers recently, but I haven’t had a chance to test out whether or not it’s being enforced. Please let us know in the comments below if you have any experience with this.
