IHG – Not happy bunnies…

September 7th, 2012 96 comments

Just had a lovely letter from those folk in Atlanta (to read the full version click on the post) who aren’t very happy about the use of “Priority Club” in the domain name.

I can’t really argue with the fact that it may “creates confusion by suggesting IHG’s sponsorship or endorsement of your website” as I get a numerous emails from folk wanting me to credit points for their stay in <insert hotel name here> due to their questionable IT system and raft of unclear rules of when you do/do not get points for a stay. But I do disagree with “Continued use of the Domain Name will cause loss of goodwill to IHG” - I think the site does the opposite.

What seems odd is that…

  • It’s taken this long for them to get around to it ( 2 1/2 years) - and it’s not like this is a new initiative as I know of another site that received this letter last year and the person on the other end of this letter (name withheld)  has been working for IHG since 2000 – so must have been aware of the site for at least 18 months?
  • I  promote IHG promotions which helps drive customers to their hotel = more revenue
  • There is no loss in revenue to IHG as any links that I create in my posts to IHG do not earn me, and therefore cost them, any commission.

I guess I’m just out of favour this month – or it’s the lack of recent updates (sorry)….

Anyway, I don’t really fancy a legal battle so it’s time to rename the site – suggestions welcome – although I think IHGinsider.com is out (even though it’s available)
