Does it matter if cash or points are used? A few people have been unsuccessful and it's unclear why. Thanks.

Thanks. It looks like they're going to honor the "mistake" promo, which is good business and the right thing to do.

I think if you do a points renewal you get some back after a couple of stays.

Don't hate the player....

First IHG stay...."Thank you for
your loyalty, we've upgraded you" "Please choose your welcome amenity" "Of course, a 2PM late check out will be no problem".

Just want to make sure I understand the IHG Ambassador extension schemeso please correct me if Im wrong
Straight to DiamondThru 12/22
Straight to Diamond + 10 NightsThru 12/23
Straight to Diamond + Ambassador Sign UpThru 12/23
Straight to Diamond + 10 Nights + Ambassador Sign Up in 2023Thru 12/24?

Also, I assume the Ambassador thing isnt perpetual, correct? For example, having straight to diamond and then buying ambassador today to extend to 2023 does not mean that if I buy it again next year it will extend to 2024,

I have hit the 10 nights to keep Diamond, my status still shows 2022, CSR confirmed on phone, is there any way to validate any other way ?

I am still also intending to purchase Ambassador, when should I do this to maximize Diamond, should that be in January to extend my status to end of 2024?
