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

Hope that helps – read full article.

Complimentary Internet access for Ambassadors

December 6th, 2010 2 comments

What: As the title says..”We understand that when you travel on business, you want to have everything you need at your fingertips to make your stay as simple as possible. From now on, exclusively to members of InterContinental Ambassador, participating InterContinental Hotels & Resorts properties would like to offer complimentary Internet. This offer is not restricted by date or length of stay.”

The small print..

  • “Must be an InterContinental® Ambassador member to qualify” – Not actually – only hotels without the “*” on the offer page
  • “Offer only available when booked online on rate category IKICN
  • “Ambassador membership card must also be presented on check-in to qualify for this offer.”
  • “Rooms booked online on rate IKICN will be priced equal to the best flexible rate where hotels have availability” –  Good news – on the rates I checked the cancellation policy still remains the as the best flexible rate!

Relaunch of the Ambassador Website

March 6th, 2009 3 comments

Intercontinental have relaunched the Ambassador program, the main new perk seems to be a brand new shiny web-site and a new look for the loyalty card (mine arrived today)! Other minor changes includes weekend certificates now being valid for a whole year but no longer for suites. The new site also has a section for the latest offers for Ambassadors –see more here – although I preferred the old list.
