Transferring IHG Points to AA - How long?
 
Does anyone know how long it takes to transfer points from IHG to AA?

I did some SPG and IHG on Wednesday to top up my AA account. My SPG showed up the next day, still waiting for IHG. Any real world experience in how long this will take?

Thanks in advance :)

To answer my own question, they showed up today, so Wed -> Sat :)

OLD post bump from the dead, but wondering the same...terms say 4-6 weeks which is kinda crazy! Glad to hear it's much more reasonable.

Anybody else?

Decided to transfer 50K IHG points > 10K AA Miles Saturday 1/12 to top off my account for a upcoming redemption. Not the best value, but better than spending $350+ to buy miles.

This transfer can ONLY be done directly via IHG or Ambassador Customer Service. The points were removed instantly from my account and I'll update when they finally hit AA.

Conversion rates and IHG contact info here: https://www.ihg.com/hotels/us/en/glo...-rewards/miles

***UPDATE***

My Points-to-Miles transfer posted to my AA account today 1/19/19, so 7-Days total, Saturday to Saturday.

Not bad, and a whole lot better than the claimed 4-6 weeks.

Just did another IHG to AA transfer and this time it took only 2-Days!!! 2/18/2020 to 2/20/2020 posted in my AA account. :tu:

Transferred 80K IHG Points for 16K AA Miles.

Typically the loss in redemption value is not worth it, but with some of these latest AA "Economy Web Special" rates is worth checking them out.

I'm seeing rates as low as 18K miles round-trip, direct flights from PHL>CUN (Cancun) with cash rates going for $650, making the AA miles are worth OVER 3-cents each. ;)

Talking about terrible conversions; the list also shows you can convert to US Airways Dividends miles...:D

I was just on the IHG website trying to figure out how to do the transfer but canít. Did you transfer online?

Unless it has changed recently, you have to call them. It cannot be done online.
