Ambassador Renewal – Which is the best deal?

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.

    I have the same problem but I wonder about Offer 3:

    I am currently holding the PC Visa card issued by Chase bank and I already receive 10% rebate.

    Will the 10% offered here is in addition, i.e. I will receive 20% points back? And will it apply to all IHG hotels?

    What is Ambassador? I am already a Platinum member so would this replace being platinum? I am unsure what the benefits are to Ambassador versus being a platinum PC member.

    I used option 3 last year but never stayed at a Crowne Plaza so I didn’t find any addtitional value over Platinum. Guess where I am this week?

    @Andy I guess you meant to say that you never stayed at an Intercontinental.

    Taking your point further for option 3 – we can value the 15k points at: US$105. So if you can get US$95 of value from your 10% discount then you’re up. So US$95 = 14,000 points = 140,000 redeemed)
