Question From The Reader:

Hi, do you know whether IHG ambassador BOGO certificate will trigger the 20,000 bonus points offer for staying 2 nights? Thanks

InterContinental Free Weekend Night Certificate:

InterContinental Ambassador Booking Link

InterContinental Ambassador Free Weekend Night Certificate Link (Check Rates Before Buying)

You can use the link on the piece to check the Free Weekend Night Cert-rates and even book one before you sign up. Just make sure that you sign up at least a week before so that your purchase is processed and the certificate deposited into your account before the stay begins.

Ambassador Sign Up Promotion:

Join Intercontinental Ambassador, Stay 2 Nights & Receive 20,000 Points Through April 30, 2022

RENEW Intercontinental Ambassador Status Through March 31, 2022 – Receive 20,000 Bonus Points After Two Nights

IHG Rewards members can now earn both the sign-up/renewal bonus + an additional bonus of 20,000 points after two nights’ stay. This effectively makes the sign-up free if you value IHG Rewards points roughly at half of a cent each.

My Two Night Stay:

SUCCESS: IHG InterContinental Ambassador Renewal Promo

I had a two-night stay at the InterContinental Barcelona (a reflagged Crowne Plaza), and the free weekend night cert stay triggered the bonus.

Back to the reader’s question. Yes. The two-night stay, which you have applied the Ambassador certificate, should post such, and if it doesn’t, contact the Ambassador contact center and ask them to fix it.


I renewed the Ambassador membership, as I tend to stay at an InterContinental every once in a while. However, the program is the best fit for someone who doesn’t have top-tier status with Hilton, Hyatt, or Marriott.

Ambassador program guarantees (watered down) a one-category upgrade from the booked room type and 4 PM check out.

Sometimes you have to remind the hotel what the guaranteed upgrade is, like what was the case with this reflagged Crowne Plaza, now InterContinental, in Barcelona.
