    Interesting... the bonus points for booking through the website / mobile and the specific location bonus seem to be very targeted.

    The OP got one but not the other and I got neither, but it seems some people are getting both.

  6. I just registered but didn't get an email. Is this targeted to European members

    Nope. Perhaps only folks who live south of you of European descent.:)

    I have Platinum Ambassador status and my total points add to 63,700.

    Try one and done 1,000
    Stay 5 nights 6,700
    Take a survey 100
    Stay 2 Saturday nights 8,000
    Book one stay with IHG Visa 1,500
    Do everything above 32,000

    There are no additional points for "liking" or being mildly amused by guinessyyz's posts since he is a RA.
     
  8. How about insulted by him. I do that well :D

    I registered 6 of my families accounts. The offers ranged from 50,000 points to 107,600 points. The one with the 107,600 points would be required to travel to a city not in the immediate area. This is not going to happen. For all of us, we have to complete either 4 or 5 nights.

    I have one other person who is not registered with the program. I will need to get him registered and see what his offer is.

    I also wonder if there might be additional points because of the badges that they have listed.

    No status and got the following:
    Stay 1 - 1000 points
    Stay 5 nights - 10,100 points
    3 Brands - 33,000 points
    Book 2 stays online - 3,600 points
    Stay in 2 big cities - 18,000 points
    Stay 2 Saturday nights - 7.200 points
    Complete all - 73,000 points

    Total: 145,900 points available. :eek:

    In theory I could do it all in 3 stays over 5 nights. so long as they were all different brands and two were in big cities on a Saturday night, booked online.

    Definitely looks like they're giving better offers to people with either lower status or that are less frequent guests?

    I requalified for Platinum 3 months ago and have maybe 10 different properties this year all over the country, and so far it looks like all of the Platinum / Ambassadors are getting lower offers than Gold or no status folks :)

    Makes sense if they're trying to drum up business from infrequent folks, since they probably assume that the folks that are already Platinum / Ambassador will continue to give them business regardless?

    Right, I take it back. My offer SUCKS. I have to fly to either Krabi in Thailand or Danang in Vietnam (I live in Japan) to complete it... :eek:

    Platinum via card, stays/points would have me qualified for Gold this year

    1000 for 1 stay
    7400 for 7 nights
    12000 for 2 different brands (not bad)
    2800 for booking 3 separate stays via website or mobile
    100 survey
    12000 for 2 stays in cities listed *
    4800 for 2 Saturdays
    1500 for paying with IHG/PC Visa
    42000 for the Big Win

    83600 total.

    *I think some people are neglecting to click through to the "view all" in the City tab to see that there are a TON of hotels available in those multiple cities.

    good to also note that from the terms and conditions that a stay for this 6000 promo is defined as 3 nights or more, at least for my promo offer !

    That is bull***t! Just checked my offer and the same conditions apply. Very sneaky to change the definition of 'stay' and hide it in the fine print... wonder what other surprises are lurking in there???

    Interesting... I see no such thing in the terms when I look at the "Try one and done / one stay is all it takes" for 1k points. Same goes for "Explore our brands / mix things up" so I guess these are separate terms for those types of stays? For both of those it has the standard verbiage of one night is a stay, and consecutive nights are a single stay regardless of check-in/out.

    Like I said, I did not get the offer to stay at a specific hotel/city or the one about booking through the website, so I'm guessing these are all different terms based on which particular promo you qualified for.

    For me it applies to the 'resort' promotion only (not the city, single, or brands) promotions.

    yup, correct, each promo may have different definition of what a stay is or if there is a minimum duration, so good to read them all during planning, especially if these are mattress runs just to take advantage of a promo. hate to have any fellow MPer book a very expensive 'mattress' and ends up with 0 qualifying points for a particular promo

    no problem, that's what this Forum is all about, sharing and helping each other !. without reading the T&Cs, you might have given IHG a "BIG Win" too, I'm sure they wouldn't have mined you staying at your IC...;)
