Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are wiling to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Guess I asked wrong. Is it left/right as you are boarding going to your seat or when you are sitting in your seat looking forward. It should be as you are sitting but just want to make sure.

Is there an easy way to extend IHG points. Do they have a shopping portal? I can't find it if they do.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Can make a regular points reservation and cancel too.

Didn't think of that. Signed up for survey and didn't qualify for the first one but still received 5 points right away. Closed the survey account.

If it is the first time they might make an exception, just  say that IHG points did not have an expiration date and you did not know they changed it, happened to me and rep said as a one time exception-she reinstated my points.
