Yes, if you scroll back about 10 posts you will see that this has happened.

I believe this is your Ambassador expire date...

If you click on [2018 Track to Elite Status] of your account page in your app, it will show:

You are
Spire Elite
Qualifying Points: xxxx
Qualifying Nights: xxxx
2017 Elite Rollover Nights: 0
Reward Nights Redeemed: 0
Elite Status Expiration: 12/31/2019


And that is your Spire expiration date.
If you only click on [Member Card], the expiration says EXP: JAN 31, 2019, beneath Spire, that is your Ambassador Expiration date. Two very different thing...

I too think it's just the Amb expiry date and we won't know until January if Spire status got extended or not.

Yes, but that's likely not the Spire date but, as mentioned, the Amb expiration date. Also, afaik, IHG status expires with end of year and not end/Jan.

You clearly misunderstood. Please kindly refer back to my post. I quote:

If you click on [2018 Track to Elite Status] of your account page in your app, it will show:

You are
Spire Elite
Qualifying Points: xxxx
Qualifying Nights: xxxx
2017 Elite Rollover Nights: 0
Reward Nights Redeemed: 0
Elite Status Expiration: 12/31/2019

That is your Spire expire date.
Clearly this date is expiring on 31st December, which is membership year ends. And that is not Ambassador expire date. Are we clear now?

the Ambassador date is shown on your card etc in the app.
on you account page there is a “2018 Track to Wlite Status” heading with an arrow to the right. Click on that and it spells out your Spire expiration date.

In my case it looks like this:
Qualifying Points: xxxx
Qualified Nights: x
2017 Elite Rollover Nights 0
Reward Nights Redeemed: x
Ambassador Status expires: 01/11/2019
No trace of "Elite Status expires" here.

That is what mine also looks like, with the exception of my ambassador renewing in August.

Spire Ambassador.

Do you use Android or Apple? Which version is your app? And were you a Kimpton member as well?
