IHG Rewards Club Royal Ambassador Earning Post July 1 2014

Members will earn 10 points per USD for rooms and other eligible spend compared to flat 2,000 points previously before any bonuses.

I had a stay posted to my account from an InterContinental hotel in Asia where I checked in on June 30th and checked out on July 1st.

Seems that the stay posted with both pre and post July 1 Royal Ambassador bonus, although the rate from where the 500 bonus posted is off by at least 20%.

So, this would imply that the IHG Rewards Club is continuing with both Platinum and Ambassador/Royal Ambassador bonus.


It is good to know that both Platinum and Ambassador/Royal Ambassador bonuses are continuing past-July 1, 2014 change. Seems that the revenue that hotels are reporting back to IHG are bit off and you must “audit” your point earnings to ensure proper point earnings.
