Check Your Emails for Free Gift from IHG – Ambassador Status or 50,000 Points

Three readers reached out about a gift they received from email from IHG:

  • Two readers got a link to claim Ambassador Status.
  • One reader got a link to click to collect 50,000 IHG points.

I’m sure many are getting these gifts, and perhaps some other versions. Both of these have very nice value. I’ve only seen one report of the points offer, and a few of the Status offer, so that one is probably more prevalent. Not sure who they are targeting to send these out to, but keep an eye out to ensure you don’t miss it.

Very nice. Lucky those who got.
The only email i got today is a reminder not to mention my triple point bonus.

I got 25k points (or the option to gift Platinum status to someone else) for renewing my Spire status.

and the subject line will be….? or received from….?

Come on DoC, you should know better. Did any of these three readers tell you more? (If they’re still “reading,” how about throwing everybody else a clue or two.) It’s less than helpful to have to scan through tons of daily IHG and Chase/IHG messages (e.g. junk mail for far lesser offers) in search of…. what, exactly?

Dude, you can say thank you before asking for more.

You gets tons of messages from IHG, every day? I get like one a week. Not too hard to search for the one message I got today, which only tells me to register for a 3x booker bonus.

From IHG rewards club – “(your name), the email you’ve been waiting for… Enjoy 50,000 points just for being a member”. Received at 10:30 am today.

My subject line for IHG read: “Welcome to a your new status”. Terrible sentence structure… but whatever lol

I have gmail and it’s easy to search the Trash and Inbox. That’s how I found out I also get emails from IHG once a day it seems.

There’s a nice way to ask for additional information and then there is this. Often if Chuck or myself don’t include this in the post it’s because we don’t know. You could have simply asked ‘hey does anybody know the subject line or the e-mail address this was sent from’?

The subject line was:
“Welcome to IHG… Don’t be a dick”

You should know better.

I received IHG Spire Elite Status… don’t know if I’ll use it since I’ll also have earned Marriott Titanium… but I’ll try to stay at an IHG hotel at least once or twice next year.

I spread the love and IHG has the highest percentage of acknowledging my status, but they’re starting to dump me in standard rooms just like the others.

Don’t these hotel chains know I’m going to look at the back of the door and see if my room is the smallest on the floor?

Exactly this. I do the same thing. I’ve been Platinum for years and they always mention the status, but I’ve probably been given one upgrade out of at least 20 stays. I even had to haggle for my late checkout during my last stay and was only able to get an hour (instead of two).

IHG is such crap. Been Spire every year since the new Spire tier was announced and got nothing.

Thanks anyways, DoC.

The email subject line read “More benefits are coming your way”. This was for the free ambassador.

Intresting to see what they give for someone who just redeem the free chase night certificate and nothing else 🙂

Didnt get anything, well tbh I never get anything from IHG. Chips and bottled water at check in and thats it. First time in 6 years I let my Ambassador status expire.

On a positive note, I got AA EXP status from Hyatt Globalist, which is a lot more valuable 😀

Mikey

You got chips with the water? Whoa.

Nada here, but then again I was already Spire. Spire status is useless.

It is always nice to get an unexpected gift of points or status. But what I really, really want is to have breakfast included for Spire Elite and/or club access.
