To make it clear:
Is it correct, that I an AMB/RA books and pays two (or more) rooms, the IC has to give
a. upgrades and also
b. free minibar
for only for one room?

I know, that some ICs give more, but my question ist what do they have to give.

No, just the room where the AMB is staying, not the others. But some Ic are very generous ( san francisco and panama for example)

Just a data point - joined 1st of October. Ambassador Package arrived today (October 11).

Totally surprised how fast it arrived, despite not being renewal but a new one.

My packet arrived today as well (renewed on the last day of membership: 9/30). With a BOGO certificate valid through 10/2017. And the 15K points now posted into my account. ^

Question, are the 15K points showing as Elite qualifying? Thanks.

New Spire AMB here, enrolled Sept. 28th and no packet yet.

Side note I did get my 10% points rebate (from the 32K AMB enrollment) already from the IHG CC, posted Oct. 13th. ^

Interesting, I did got 10% rebate on Oct. 13 - but not from the Ambassador purchase.

Is anyone missing their 5k IHG points voucher from their ambassador kit? This is ridiculous that I need to call them up to ask them to fix their problem. Going to demand 10k points for this nonsense.!

As I've said a few posts up,

I waited months and months and months then I received multiple AMB kits in the mail. Definitely complain though, good luck on those points

Did you receive a letter with you package? If so, you received the voucher.

UPDATE: Just received my AMB packet (new Spire AMB card, metal AMB luggage tag, BOBO Cert and official letter) over the weekend, so basically 4-weeks and a couple days since enrolling. ^

Have to take a second look through the packet as I also did not see the 5K bonus points..... as someone responded it may have been on the letter and just missed it.
