I also am seeking a way to hold a room for use with my next IHG free night certificate that will not be issued for a few months. I had assumed that the credit card free nights came out of a different inventory than regular points awards (as described in the previous post), so booking a points award and trying to convert it to a credit card free night would not necessarily work.

My sister has a credit card free night that she can book now. Any thoughts on whether it would be a problem if I make a reservation with her free night certificate (I could add my name as an additional guest) and then call IHG to change the reservation to use my certificate once issued? It seems like this should not be a problem, but I was wondering if anyone has done this, and if so, do both people have to be on the call with IHG?
