Also, sorry for the redundancy! I try my best, but sometimes it's hard to find things even with the search. Will try harder next time heh.
You're welcome and good luck. And even though I've been here for quite some time, I agree that the search function could use some fundamental "refurbishment".

This seems like a good deal. Paying 49$ every year and getting a free certificate that can be used anywhere

What's the downside?

Probably can't get the signup bonus again if you still have the card...

Agreed, for instance searching "IHG" does not return this thread.

You need to search Priority Club because IHG is the new moniker of the program just started Jul 2013.

Yes, but if the letters "IHG" are in the title thread and you search titles for IHG it should come up.

It wont because IHG is too short for the FT search engine to handle.

Try to put a quotation mark around it, then it may work.

You should check the FAQ and learn more on how to perform a Search

You should check the FAQ, under General Forum Usage there is instruction on how to do an effective Search.

You got your bonus fast. my statement closed on 9/16, spent $2016.xx, no 80k and no platinum status yet. Ironically, i see the 19xx pts + 1xx (2x) pts posted on 9/18.

Did you finish the required spend within a week of the statement date? If so, the regular points will post but the 80k will not, until the next statement.

Ok, that explains the reason why i don't see the 80k bonus and platnium status posted to my IHG account. Thank you.

Thanks
