    It seems we still can earn 20.000 points for 15 nights till the end of April 2014.
    is it for sure the deadline this time?

    Hopefully, they'll extend it again. IMO this shouldn't even be a special promo but a part of the program.

    It does not seem they'll extend it, since it is still mentioned in my account : Ambassador Accelerator valid till end of April 2014.
    I made sure to add my last four nights this month to be sure to get the 20000 points.
    Any other news, members?

    it seems if Accelerator is not renewed, IHG would need to offer more points per stay or per night?

    IC stays earn so few points as it is :eek:

    True, 2K, but for only outside US, Canada, Mexico and Caribbean. In those regions you still get 10 points per $1 spend.

    I am afraid, this promotion ends tomorrow...Can you imagine staying in an IC in Europe or in the Middle East spending for 3 or 4 nights 800 to 1000 dollars and getting only 2000 points?
    IHG Rewards Club has to find a new promotion if they want to keep their guests.

    This does kink of suck....

    With the lack of points Asia and European ic don't get that much value for the stays.

    My 28 nights in singapore this year have resulted in 28000 points, plus about 50,000 on the credit card. If these stays wer in the USA, it would have been well obverse 300,000. Cutting the accerator will make thes 4k per checkin! Or about 50 times less points!

    As a matter of fact, I consider this "an injustice"...why should ICs stays in the USA give more points than other ICs all over the world?

    I am happy to report that IC in Cairo just gave me 2000 points as a gift at check-in

    with additional points from stay, a decent total :eek:

    I just looked in my account, this promotion "Ambassador Accelerator" disappeared completely .... I will have four IC qualifying nights for April, adding them to the 16 collected nights, it should give me 20.000 points.
    Wonder why they just already cancelled this promotion and so fast.

    I don't remember any formal announcement even telling us this was ending. Just noticed one day that there was an end date of April 30th.
    I think they should prorate the number of nights you had and payout something. Mine disappeared too.

    There was an email I think about the extension of the original offer. They will obviously not prorate anything, they never do. You either get the bonus or not, even if short just by one night.

    EUREKA, I just notice in my IHG RC account that they have extended this promotion till end of June.
    It had first completely disappeared and now it comes back...good job...they definitely need some training...

    just noticed it reappeared in my account too.
    Also noticed they must have had an IT update, they are now listing rollover nights, and rewards nights on your acount page.

    Extended till end June, no time for me, will probably have 12 IC nights but not enough to get 20000 points.

    Might be a wild guess, but I'll put a dollar on that it'll be extended...

    good to see Ambassadors getting treated well :eek:

    I had earned 10 nights in my accelerator program when it came to an end, maybe IHG will give me some points but probably will not if I do not ask?

    the new points scheme offered in lieu of Accelerator looks like it will be more advantageous, particularly as an RA

    on recent IC stays I earned much more than you would have got under Accelerator, staying at expensive ICs will be much better rewarded

    Londoncalling, could you please tell us how many nights were missing?
    Like Jonspencer, I hope to receive those 20000 points since I had 12 nights in my accelarator program before end of June 2014.

    3 I think. I had a couple of BOGO stays in there so I'm not sure what they actually counted as stays. In one hotel they credited me with one night and an overlapping stay so don't know if that counted towards the accelerator program.

    I had 16 nights and got nothing from them. I think I'll email them and see what they say.
