Remember, you need to have the cert in hand when you check-in. There are many reports of ambassador welcome kits taking ->6 weeks to arrive, so you might be on the edge.
The AMBWeekend rate is usually the same rate as the best flexible rate (according to my experience) The AMBWeekend rate has also the same conditions to the best flex rate with exception of 2 night booking and the 2nd night being free.

After using my BOGOF voucher, i was credited with 2k points + 1k plat bonus (This was before IHG altered the points to 10 per dollar) and given 1 qualifying night.

It looks like the rates are higher at this hotel using the BOGO cert - I checked Sept 12-14
The link doesn't show me the rate. I am only able to use check for other rates, however the special rate is not shown.

Certificates on ebay

A few certificates as well as one or two RA referrals on sale @ ebay. Ebay search does not show you all the ebay countries, but rather you need to search individual countries one by one. i.e. www.ebay.com www.ebay.co.uk or www.ebay.fr

It is a part of the Ambassador programme and therefore is only used at ICs.

1. BOGO is only valid for use the use of an Ambassador occupying a room
2. Only one per stay, so on a 10day Friday - Sunday stay you can not use a bogo for both weekends.

I'm thinking someone can answer these questions?

What is BONG?

Do Ambassador weekend certificate nights count as a qualifying night?

I could tell you what a bong is () but are you referring to "BOGO"? Buy One Get One.
--------------

Can anyone recommend their favorite IC in the U.S. that would be good for a weekend trip? Trying to figure out where to use ours before the end of the year...
