F&F worked at Waikiki Beachcomber, no voucher needed. Am Plat so nicely asked for ocean view, but received a room that even a giraffe would not consider an ocean view. Parking charged to room, but got no points for stay. Biggest plus: received a 6 pm checkout.

Will booking with F&F rates be qualify "the Big Win" promo stay?
I need it to this tasks:
1) new hotel brand
2) new stay
3) Std stay

Will this stay give points from other promos?

Well this was answered on this very page..A little reading usually gets the answers and much less flaming, but to spoonfeed a little since you are new here
no, no, no, no

Thanks for the link Randall! Just wondering whether if we will forfeit all Platinum privileges when booking under F&F?

Looks like the link no longer works. Does anyone have anything new to share?

I gave up my Ambassador as worthless on many occasions. Better booking with Virtuoso (and getting upgrade plus) or I just booked F&F in Singapore 6 Jan Club Room which was better than using Virtuoso agent.

F&F waives the Amb benefits and credit to your account (unless they screw up).

I know these don't earn IHG points, but what about Avios?

No. if a stay is ineligible to accrue hotel points, it is ineligible to accrue miles.

In my experience it's an unpredictable system due to local interpretation of the program, and ranges from 3 cupcakes to a full upgrade to the Presidential Suite, both of which I have experienced. So if you always fly to Toronto you get the cupcakes, better to fly to Porto for the giant two story suite upgrade. Closer to home I spend a week every year at NYC Times Sq. IC and always get top floor great views and 'Thanks for being an Ambassador'. I've been able to stack with F&F no problem.

No points when using F&F so far.

Sorry everyone I'm a little bit new to all of this. I signed up for and have the IHG Chase Visa Signature card and have met minimum spend to get platinum status. I'm looking to book at some properties in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Baltimore in the next few days. Any help at what the best way to do so is?

TIA
