Love the HI/HIX for hitting the numbers. So easy to do. This seems like a tremendous bonus for you!

Breaking omert since this topic is all over the place already ...

Is the extension trick now working for first-time Amb purchases, or were these people existing Amb who weren't Diamond, used the promo for the instant upgrade, and then renewed? Thanks.

No more instant diamond, the promo link given has now been replaced to a 2night 10k point offer

The extension trick works for first timers who bought Ambassador after getting Diamond.

Thanks. Any idea if it also works for people who were already Diamond, successfully enrolled in "Straight to Diamond," and then buy Amb for the first time?

What if the member has already enrolled in the 10K for 4 nights promotion? Does it stack?

I can confirm the Ambassador trick still works. My Diamond status immediately got extended to December 2023 and I was able to use my Diamond Ambassador benefit at the IC Singapore. Btw, it's a nice hotel!

Checking out tomorrow from my 10-th night. I scanned the whole internet on every language I know, but there are simply no posts at all from anyone who tried to extend status by 10 nights as stated in the offer. I guess in a few days I will be the first to have the answer if it works or not, will post here.

if not, I will use amb method later in December.

I’m currently Diamond until the end of December. My Amb status expired recently. I didn’t even use my BOGO cert this year. We have an upcoming points stay at the IC San Diego. I just got the final chance to renew email. If I renew as a Diamond will it extend to the end of 2023?

I don't know the answer to this but FYI I booked the highest level of non suite room and IC SD bumped me up to a suite when I arrived.

I have seen enough anecdotes to say that there is a high likelihood of this extending your Diamond status for another year.
