    This is a very welcomed change. It will take the bite off (somewhat) of the recent devaluation, at least theoretically.

    Would be nice to get 10 points per dollar spend in IC properties also outside of the US incl. Europe, Asia and so on!!!

    Hope they come to their senses and change this rule for IC's worldwide and we can earn 10 point // dollar spent.

    That's something extremely unpopular indeed!

    This will save a lot of people from checking-in and checking-out, and checking-in and checking-out of IC's. ;)

    Actually, not good news for some who use the two Cleveland and Milwaukee ICs for Mattress Runs. These properties can often be had on weekends for under U$100 meaning they'll no longer earn the 2K base but less than half that.

    True- shame it is not worldwide as that would make IC very attractive

  12. I just received my new Priority club MC issued for Canada which gives 5X ICHG points for charges at IC properties and 2X for other charges.

    Its also a no fee card.

    No forex fees.

    btw, iirc, only the 1st year is fee free.

    That said, the fee is less than the value of the annual free night at any IHG property.

    I hope the new points for IC stays doesn't make them re think and get rid of the Ambassador Accelerator, 20K bonus. I only need one more stay and to collect, my bonus.

    It's about time! I'll be happier once it includes all countries, but this is a nice start.

    Every time I complete one of those post-stay surveys I ask why I get a better return for my dollar at HI Express than IC.

    Looks like it already started, their not waiting till feb. 15th??

    MY one night stay jan 15th just posted:
    Qualifying Stay3430 pts.
    Platinum Bonus1715 pts.
    Ambassador Accelerator Bonus20000 pts.
    Royal Ambassador Bonus 1000 pts.
    26145 pts.
     
  19. I SHOULD CLARIFY THE FEE ISSUE.

    there are two versions of the card, a no fee with much fewer pointysd at startup and a card with $120 that gives you 50,000 points upon first spend. Other card features are all the same.
