    Fortunately I only have to complete 6 out of my "8" offers.

    Alas, that's unlikely going to happen.

    Total 50K IHG points

    Now that's worth around $330 in rebates including points earned for the CC spend and being Platinum for at least $500 in spending. I already have around 496K IHG points and my wife has ~82K points.

    Verdict: Not worth it!

    my wife's offer!
    She had one stay last year and none this year.
    Also interesting that they still promoting Ambassador, since they launched the new levels and no mention of any new benefits for ambassadors.

    IHG has realized the problem and now today my offer has changed and now say "complete 5 of 6 offers"

    However the graphic at the top still shows 0 of 7 offers complete.

    WOW IHG is going all in with screwing up the promo.
    This morning I got the following email, with a new offer for September to earn 10K points. It has my name and email but the wrong account number and a totally different offer then appears on my offer page!!!

    Platinum Ambassador with only 3 stays and 5 nights so far this year. Here's my offer:

    Earn 53,900 total bonus points.

    Points Value Offer Description

    5,000 Stay Once Get 5,000

    6,800 Stay 5 night(s) and earn 6,800 bonus points.

    9,600 Stay at 2 brands and get 9,600 bonus points.

    4,000 Stay with us for the weekend and earn 4,000 bonus points.

    1,500 Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card

    27,000 Complete 5 of 5 offers and earn (an additional) 27,000 bonus points.

    This appears to be 53,900 points for staying 5 nights, which seems like a good deal to me! I hope that previously booked stays for nights within the promotional period count towards the promotion; the Terms and Conditions for the weekend stay are somewhat ambiguous.

    Any news on what a qualifying rates is? I have a work stay next week on a government rate and was wondering if it is "qualifying". The rules are so vague. This will take care of 4 of the 5 nights I have to stay. I was not planning on attempting my challenge but with this unexpected trip I think I can do it with one mattress run. There is a cheaper Holiday Inn Express not too far from work so pretty do able.

    I am new to IHG rewards. No cc until my next AORama comes up next year.
    I received 2 offers both the same. 2 stays =1 free night. I will be traveling solo soon for business for 3 nights. Trying to figure out how to make my 2nd night under a different name hoping that my 1st and 3rd nights book as two separate stays. Any tips?

    Thank you in advance for your time,
    Sharon
