Are there any Data points on the 10 nights that are required to keep it? Also is there anyway to cancel Ambassador renewal and purchase again later?
whats the point of getting diamond if you are ambassador btw. ? Isnt ambassador a higher status as diamond at IHG ?

Ambassador only confers status at Intercontinental hotels, it counts for nothing at a Crowne Plaza or a Holiday Inn for example.

It does come with Platinum, which may or may not count for something at a CP or HI.

I believe it will extend out Diamond status until the expiry of the Ambassador program if one is currently a Diamond.

At the last of my recent series of UK HI/HIX stays, on check-in it was acknowledged with the usual "I see that you was an IHG member and thank you for your loyalty!"

And after a short pause "You are the only non-Diamond IHG member here tonight - so we've upgraded you to the top floor river view" :-)

I thanked the receptionist, but didn't have the heart to tell her that after that stay I *would* be Diamond (albeit not via the Instant method)!

But I smiled at the irony that I got a better upgrade because I WASN'T Diamond.

I believe they fixed the issue were everybody was able to enroll just a few hours after it hit the blogs. It's been dead for a while.

Hi there,

I managed to cancel my Amb renewal, I now have no Ambassador status but only Diamond.

How long should wait to repurchase Ambassador and extend my Diamond status into 2023.

IHG Diamond + ambassador enrollement

Data points: straight to diamond + Ambassador expiry addition + 10k/4 night promo:

Recently finished a 6-night stay at Beppu.
Previously registered under the 10k for each 4 nights - immediately got the 10k bonus.
Additionally, that 10k promo on my account states "2 more night(s) until next Reward."more night(s) until next Reward. 2 more night(s) until next Reward. 2 more night(s) until next Reward.2 more night(s) until next a
As I previously registered in the 'straight to diamond' promo and paid for ambassador with points (not a renewal - but had it in 2015), I immediately got the 20k points back as well.
The Ambassador $20 coupon was applied to the folio at check out. The child got a free breakfast coupon for each day. Upgrade given was a clubroom (with balcony onsen) without access to club lounge. Bottom suites of that property were blocked by trees. We ended up looking at 5 different rooms in that resort.

Did you also sign up for the status challenge? Just wondering if the 5 nights to Platinum overrides Straight to Diamond offer

I used this offer to get Diamond status with IHG until 12/2022. I would like to have the status until the end of 2023 - I never bought the Ambassador membership. If I buy the Ambassador membership now, should my diamond status be extended through 12/2023? Thanks.
