Just got off the phone with IHG Rewards Club spokesperson in regards to the changes that were supposed to take place on July 1st.
It turns out that the changes including the new status level requiring 75 nights will be introduced in the month of July but not on the July 1st. The July 1st date was mistakenly posted on the IHG’s website.
Myself included thought that the new benefits and changes were to introduced on July 1, 2015, based on the previous communication received. Apparently this is not the case.
When IHG Rewards Club is ready to launch the new level and related benefits, you will be first to know by reading LoyaltyLobby.
