The Big Win returns - Spring 2014

Has anyone received big win points for 2014 yet? I have completed two stays so far and no credit yet.

I assume this does not prevent us from using the AAA rate?
I used the AAA rate for most nights in the last Big Win.

I seem to recall that in the previous Big Win (fall 2013) some (most?) tasks only updated about once a week (was it Mondays)? It so happens that although I also had two stays so far, and both posted to IHG itself (the second one only today), the first of those posted last Tuesday, so missed last Monday's assumed sweep. So I don't expect my first (non-survey) activity to hit The Big Win until sometime this Monday probably.

Hey Everyone,

Does anyone have: Stay at 2 Crowne Plaza hotels and earn x points?

I can't make quite figure out the T&C's. It sounds like stay at 2 Different Crowne Plazas, but then the actual T&C's says: Number of bonus points or bonus miles listed above will be awarded after required number of qualifying room nights have been consumed by the member between January 1, 2014 and April 30, 2014 (both dates inclusive) at Crowne PlazaŽ hotels worldwide. So since the T&C's only talk about "Required number of room nights" that makes it sound like one just needs 2 nights which can be at the same Crowne Plaza?

If anyone has the same challenge and has gotten a clarification or figured it out with how their stays have posted, it would be greatly appreciated if you can shine a light on this. Thanks so much and good luck to everyone's BigWin!

Can anyone with personal experience tell me if a reservation made through the UR portal to IHG website still count toward Big Win?

All my bookings for the 2013Q4 Big Win went through the AA eShopping portal without an issue so I can't see there being a problem with this.

Mine was done via reward gateway which is a workplace discount scheme in the UK and I never had an issue getting the big win credit and cashback

The links to the terms and conditions/list of eligible resorts are not working on my Big Win offers page. The links to 2 of the individual offers are not working. I have no idea what I must do to complete the requirements. I tried to email and called IHG several times but the issue remains. Does anyone have the same problem?

Yeah, I have the "views.dashboard.offer.r.title" and blank list of eligible hotels. I e-mailed Ambassador and the reply said, "we have forwarded this to our contact for further assistance. Rest assured we will send you an e-mail once we receive their response."

I would be curious to know this as well. Mine wants me to stay at two Intercontinentals and if possible I'd like these to be with the same property.
