I personally value the IHG Ambassador programme highly, and have written an introduction to it. It appears that a great offer is coming your way, if you are due to buying or renewing your membership.
The offer is not live yet, so there isn’t any official page at this point. But you can already see all details in the Ambassador programme’s terms and conditions.
In a few words, if you join and renew the membership during the offer period, you will be awarded a free night voucher after one qualifying stay! And more details:
- Offer period: 30/07/2020 – 15/11/2020
- You need to stay once by 31/01/2021
- The stay must be paid, and at one of the following three brands: InterContinental, Regent and Kimpton
- The voucher is valid till 30/04/2021
- You will still get the weekend night certificate (BOGOF voucher)
The voucher entities you to an award night stay, up to the value of 40,000 points. There doesn’t seem to be any brand restriction, however I’d assume most people would want to use it on top hotels. After the introduction of dynamic pricing, many of Kimpton, InterContinental or even Regent hotels in Europe can be had for this price.
You don’t need to sign up to this offer, just purchase or renew your membership as usual. However, one can only renew the membership within 60 days of the expiry – my membership expires September next year after two extensions, so unfortunately I have no chance to participate.
