IHG Rewards Club has Your World Sale going on (read more here) that has an offer for those that are thinking of purchasing InterContinental Ambassador-status.
IHG is offering 10,000 bonus points for joining Ambassador program by November 29, 2017. I would assume that this also applies if you decide to pay the price using points instead of the usual $200.
Ambassador program benefits only apply for stays at the InterContinental hotels, although it comes with IHG Rewards Club Gold status as well. Ambassador members earn and redeem IHG Rewards Club points.
The main benefits of the Ambassador program are:
- Guaranteed 4PM check out
- Guaranteed one category upgrade on paid stays
- Welcome amenity
You may get lucky and get another 5,000 points with the welcome package or can request this if it is not included as long as it is still mentioned on some Ambassador pages.
Ambassador program is worth it if you have more than few says at InterContinental hotels for the late check out benefit alone.
Here are the short terms and conditions of this offer:
A one-time bonus of 10,000 Bonus Points will be awarded to you approximately 6-8 weeks after you successfully join the InterContinental Ambassador program. Offer is valid from November 11 through November 29.
