Convert IHG Rewards Club Points and Get 50 Percent Bonus MileagePlus Miles

W hen you convert a minimum of 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points to United Airlines MileagePlus miles now through Monday, October 10, 2016, you will earn a 50 percent — but you must register for this offer here; or you can call IHG Rewards Club Customer Care directly at 1-888-211-9874.

As an added bonus, “If you have IHG credit card it then comes 9,000 IHG per 3,000 United” according to this comment written by Sean — who is a reader of Rapid Travel Chai — in response to this article written by Stefan Krasowski. “…I’ve done this myself and received the 10% rebate”.

Select Terms and Conditions

The date on which the transfer of IHG Rewards Club points is ordered — also known as the transaction date — must fall within the Promotional Period in order to qualify for bonus miles. Please allow up to eight weeks for the MileagePlus miles to post to your account — including bonus MilaegePlus miles.

This offer cannot be combined with other MileagePlus offers; and is subject to change without notice.

Taxes and fees related to award travel are the responsibility of the member. Bonus award miles, award miles, and any other miles earned through non-flight activity do not count toward qualification for Premier elite level status unless expressly stated otherwise.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply.


The conversion rate of 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points is typically 2,000 frequent flier loyalty program miles — which means that you will get 3,000 MileagePlus miles as a result of this deal…

…so whether or not this promotion is worthy of your participation depends on your goals and priorities — and possibly timing. For example, 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points will get you two free nights at a hotel property which participates in PointBreaks or one free award night at the lowest tier of hotel properties; whereas 3,000 MileagePlus miles gets you slightly closer to an award ticket…

…but if you are seeking to top off your MileagePlus account towards an award ticket, this promotion does offer a slightly faster way to do so without having to actually fly as a passenger aboard an airplane.

I will personally pass on this offer.

    Thanks for the shoutout

    Another data point here, I did transfer 20K IHG > UA. A few days later the 4,000 miles posted- no bonus

      Thank you for both adding that data point and for the information, Sean — anything we can do to help our fellow frequent fliers…
