    This weekend I received a new membership card reaffirming my 2011 status and a guidebook to platinum benefits. Card looks a little too much like the SPG card for my liking, what was wrong with basic blue?

    Important nugget is that the list of benefits continues to include Pointbreaks at a stated redemption of 5000 points. Hopefully this is a sign of continuation and not just an IHG boneheaded administrative error.

    I have a deep faith that pointbreaks will stay. But, I am still glad that actual evidence regarding the continuation of pointbreaks is turning up.

    But, more importantly, of course, is the card design :cool: -- I agree completely. I think the new cards are much less "classy" than the old ones. I don't actively dislike the new designs, but I don't really see it as a step in the right direction. On the other hand, I really like the new website design.

    I kind of like the textured band at the top - it makes it easy to pull out of a stack. I wouldn't mind having that on a few of my credit cards...

    I wonder of the Ambassador Cards will change as well... I sure hope they continue the Pointbreaks, it would be that much better of they had more choices for Pointbreaks too :)

    I just got my new RA kit, and the card is the same as last years.

    DJP_707,
    Thanks for the confirmation that the RA card is staying the same.
