On Sunday, I wrote (access here) about changed Book By App-goals for IHG Rewards Club’s Into The Night-promotion.
Seems that IHG is about to start their 48-hour winter sale for stays in Europe around the year end holidays.
The business travel in Europe tends to drop starting from early December and won’t take off until January. [click to continue...]
Couldn’t have believed that there would be more issues with the Into The Nights IHG Rewards Club promo than with the previous two in the fall of 2013 and spring 2014, but apparently I was wrong.
When I was staying at the InterContinental Toronto Centre last week, they had quite a membership drive going on with the banner displayed below along with refreshments.
Although I am a Royal Ambassador member that this banner doesn’t cover at all (shouldn’t IC be promoting an Ambassador program?), I decided to have a look and was surprised about all the incorrect information. [click to continue...]
A LoyaltyLobby reader who was staying at one of the InterContinental hotels in Asia and who is Ambassador program member emailed me a copy of a Happy Birthday card that he had been given at the checking in.
InterContinental Ambassador program has turned 10 years (previous Intercontinental program was known as Six Continents Club) and to celebrate this milestone members are given these cards that come with IHG Rewards Club points. [click to continue...]
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent me a message regarding award availability at the Holiday Inn Express Singapore hotel that had standard rooms for sale but not using points.

IHG Rewards Club has quietly launched it’s “Anywhere Check-In” for Gold and Platinum members that can request early check-in at eligible hotels using the app and get confirmation when their room is ready.

Here’ my pick of five best hotel promotions that you can take advantage of this month. As is always the case, many of the best promotions allow you to dip multiple offers simultaneously.
It has been a while when so many of the programs have worthwhile promotions going on. Even I have trouble finishing them all. [click to continue...]
Not sure what happened with IHG Rewards Club back in 2013, but they suddenly started to close and terminate some accounts that had signed up for multiple promotions.
IHG Rewards Club didn’t cover this on the Terms and conditions governing the program before this fall (read more here), when they updated the program T&C’s (access the T&C’s here). [click to continue...]
