Here’s the question from the reader:

IHG free ambassador night expire april 30

do you have any news on the expiring free nights that were given for ambassador sign up and one night stay?

It is to bad that I wasn’t able to use it because of the stupid lockdown.

Am really enjoying your daily newsletter for several years already.

We asked the IHG Spokesperson and here’s IHG’s take:

There are no plans to extend these.


There are still many markets where leisure travel is banned in Europe where members with free night certificates cannot use them.

Would it really be cost-prohibitive for IHG Hotels and IHG Rewards to take care of their members that paid for the Ambassador membership?

This is not the right way to deal with loyalty program members and expiring free night certificates during the pandemic.
