President's Circle and Free night not showing up yet

Maybe there is a glitch with the software, or maybe because I'm RA + Spire + InnerCircle, something interferes.

But:

Something sounds fishy to me as well. 2018 RA status does not expire until end of January. Unless he lost 2017 status in early 2018.

Most chains have implemented an "amenity fee" or "destination fee" ... you will note that average rates have fallen by about the same amount.
