You arespire elite
75 Qualified Nights or75,000 Qualifying Points
Qualifying Points: XXXXX
Qualified Nights: XX
2017 Elite Rollover Nights 0Reward Nights Redeemed: XX

Ambassador Status expires: 01/02/2019


But in the APP, the lowest line is
Elite Status Expiration: 12/31/2019

Suggest you to look at your APP again. There is no reason why it is not showing your Elite Status Expiration as the year end.

Here's a screenshot of my app page details - I seem to have been extended two years (somewhere along the way)? I renewed Ambassador earlier this month ($200).

Even for those that show the elite status expiration date, while i hope it will, it does not necessarily mean Spire status since Gold/Plat are also IHG elites and (officially) Amb comes with Gold (soon Plat). Anyway, will know in a few days...

Thank you for the screenshot. That should explain things to other people much clearer.

I think there is a pretty good chance that your Spire is extended to 2020. At least by 1st January 2019 you should see whether you are still Spire or not.


Mine is still until 31st December 2019, I will renew my Ambassador in January and I will report back if it is extended to 31st December 2020 too.

the elite status expiration should be tied to that status and not a lower one as the app lists them separately and the screenshot is just for Spire

In the app, that 'Track to Elite Status' element and the arrow to the right, sure is well hidden. I had never really seen that, let alone thought that I should click on it. I hate apps on phones....I miss real desktop websites that have lots of info per page.

Dec 2020 is a nice score, whether intentional or not. Kudos! I'd sign up for two years

as mentioned, there is no guarantee. i remember a discussion some 2 years ago, either on FT or elsewhere, on exactly this issue and without a definite conclusion.

Firefox on Ubuntu.

In the app the last line says

"Elite Status Expiration: 12/31/2019"

I seem to be in the clear then :-)

I did renew three months ago, so it must have changed from 12/31/2018 to 12/31/2019 already.

So, with all you guys reporting either 2019 or 2020 as expiry, I am reading from all the posts here that I am the ONLY so far unlucky having NOT been extended Spire with the purchase of Ambassador ??? Anyone else Spire expiring 2018 despite purchasing/renewing Amb?

For the record, I purchased Amb 24th November. Interstingly, I have an activity line on 27th Nov that says ”ad hoc mailing - program update” , 0 points. I wonder if that is some manual ”adjustment” related
