1000 Point Credit Card Bonus [Finished]

May 28th, 2012 66 comments

Sorry – all voucher codes are now gone!

What: I received a note from a IHG employee as follows..

So currently, when you check in at an IHG hotel (like a Holiday Inn) and you’re a Priority Club Rewards member, you get a slip of paper with a unique promo code on it to get 1,000 Priority Club Rewards (PCR) points for free for watching a 90 second video at

I know this because I’m a Front Desk Associate at a hotel, and I have a ton of slips to give away. If you want one of these unique promo codes, email me below!

It’s USA only, and you only get the PCR points once per account which may be why some of you aren’t getting points. You could be using a promo code that’s been used. That’s why I can’t post the list here.

When: Until the vouchers run out

Where: USA only

How: Drop an email to removed (this will forward on to person above)

Ambassador Renewal – Which is the best deal?

May 20th, 2012 7 comments

Unfortunately my days of a Royal Ambassador are behind me, so I now have to pay to renew. Is it worth it? For me the weekend certificate benefit makes it worth my while. So I have carried out some analysis on the renewal options open to you.

If you’re points rich then go for Offer 4 – there’s little reason to hang on to thousands of points which may get devalued with little notice. For everyone else if we value points at US$7 per 1,000 points based on this method  and if you need some additional points then Offer 2 gives best value – if you plan to redeem more than 80,000 points then Offer 3 is your friend as we can value 8,000 points at US$56.

  • Offer 1: Renew for $100 and receive 5,000 bonus points
  • Offer 2: Renew for $150 and receive 15,000 bonus points
  • Offer 3: Renew for $200 and receive 15,000 bonus points plus a 10% points rebate on Reward Nights for a whole year
  • Offer 4: Renew using 20,000 of your Priority Club points and receive 5,000 bonus points

You can renew here

Hope that helps – read full article.
