    Got an email this morning offering $100 for Ambassador status. My current Ambassador status is expiring in July. I have already requalified for Priority Club Platinum, is it worth buying the Ambassador status at this price?

    Is that really half off? Isn't that the normal renewal price?

    If you're planning to stay at an Intercontinental, I think it's a great deal. Upgrades and free night certificate pay for it.

    There are 4 renewal options IIRC. You can do the standard renewal for $100 and get the 5k points, or renew for $150 and get 15k. You can also renew for $200 and get 15k points plus 10% rebate on reward nights for a year, or you can renew for 20k points outright.

    Well, 5K pts is "worth" $35...is the free weekend night and bowls of fruit worth $65? I think so...

    ++ Sounds like a good deal, especially if you plan to stay at IC's! :)

    I ended up redeeming 20k pts for the renewal. With 5k pts back, it's really 15k.
