IHG Rewards Club has launched an interesting promotion to get people to book and consume Club InterContinental reservations in Asia-Pacific (greater China excluded), Middle East and Africa.
Ambassador members can get 10,000 bonus points per stay between July 14 – December 31, 2017. Registration for this offer is required.
Note that the T&Cs state that this offer is only open for Ambassador members in Asia-Pacific (excluding Greater China that includes China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau), Middle East and Africa for stays in the same area.
This offer should only be open for those Ambassador members that renew or sign up (but don’t we all that stay at InterContinental hotels renew at some point?).

Tracking on My Offer Status (access here):
The landing page for this offer was very confusing (who designs these pages?).
Not sure exactly how this promo will work? Do they really track what you booked (properties may upgrade or even downgrade you sometimes) and award you bonus points based on the original Club InterContinental-rate reserved? I see many emails to Ambassador service center to claim missing bonus points.
Wonder if Ambassador renewals and sign up are not running at the expected levels or the Club InterContinental bookings are soft?
I am actually in the eligible area for the next couple of weeks and may book one Club InterContinental stay to see if these promo points actually post.
