I think if they go electronic, it will be for everybody (though maybe only for FOs and GMs first.) Speaking of luggage tags, I always throw them out, so for me it's not a big deal.

My understanding is they're going to stop using snail mail altogether. Everything should be electronic in 2016. I didn't get anything from them since the beginning of 2013.

This quarter I needed to overspend about $800 to get two "free" nights and some 50K points. It was simply not worth it, so I got 100 points for a survey and the IHG got exactly zero stays from me.

I couldn't care less about the real source of the problem. If I'm consistently unable to use my BOGO certificate, such program is useless for me. I can't and don't want to plan my trips around BOGO...

The hotel says they have nothing to do with it, the rate and its quotas are controlled by IHG.

Both of our family accounts are in $725-1325 range, though we don't need these MQMs. If we would need them, it's much cheaper to do a mileage run.
