Do award stays count for brand explorer reward?

Hi there, I just stayed at the Kabuki/j&d on an award night. I got bonus points for my first stay but no recognition on the brand explorer dashboard. Anyone have a reward redemption show up?

yup. several of my brand explorer check marks were from award stays. Don't know what the T&C technically say though.

I can also confirm that many of my original brand explorers were award nights.

I haven't seen any data points on the j&d promos/benefits though.

It should count, but I'm not sure that the new brands are fully functional for the brand explorer. (i.e. you still can't earn a third free night, although this is supposedly coming soon)

My 10th was a Thompson, and that triggered the free night the next day pretty functional!

But agreed on a a 3rd free night for 15 being up in the air.

I had the impression that the free night cert for the tenth brand was a first year only offer, while the five brands promo is still active. Is this incorrect?

You are incorrect. For every five brands you are supposed to get a free night.

Only recently has a 15th brand even been possible.

My J&D stay triggered an additional check mark on the brand explorer numbers but there's no check on the brand itself.
