The AAdvantage eShopping portal has been running a promo for extra miles at select retailers all week, with several retailers offering payouts of 10 miles per dollar. One of the more interesting options is IHG Hotels as you can earn 10 American Airlines miles per dollar on IHG stays booked by tomorrow (7/13/18).
- Earn 10 American Airlines AAdvantage miles per $1 at IHG Hotel Group and extra miles (as high as 15x) at other select retailers
- Direct link to extra miles offers
- IHG Terms: Not eligible until reservations have been fulfilled. Specialty rates such as corporate, negotiated rates, and IHG Friends & Family are not eligible for Cash Back. Rooms booked and paid for by IHG reward Club Points are not eligible. Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site.

- See other stores for individual tertms
While the other stores with increased payouts (10x Macy’s / Neiman Marcus, 15x eBags, 6x Dell, etc) certainly may be of interest if you have a purchase to make, the IHG offer is probably the most interesting as I don’t ever recall seeing a mileage payout like this for IHG. Indeed, the highest mileage payout we’ve seen in the past 15 months for IHG has been 7x.
The value of this offer will ultimately come down to your value of American Airlines miles. If you have a number of stays to book, they could certainly add up quickly through this offer. Keep in mind that there are some restrictions — the terms exclude booking on a corporate rate or with a coupon code not found on the AAdvantage eShopping site.
Theoretically, this ought to be valid for your stay regardless of the date, though I’d reasonably expect that the farther out you push it the more likely that you experience some sort of snag in getting paid out. If you intend to book far out with this offer, I would recommend keeping screen shots and confirmation emails.
This certainly should stack with any current targeted Accelerate promo you’re working on for IHG, which could mean quite a return on your hotel spend when stacked together.
If you’re interested in booking with the increased mileage payout, you’ll want to be sure to do it by Friday as the increased payouts will expire Friday night, 7/13/18. See the link above for more details and additional stores.
