Website's super unclear.

Will Gold Elite prevent my points from expiring due to no activity?

Is Ambassador status worth it?

Yes, I have probably gotten at least 3X ROI after 6 months of membership so far.  Usually the BOGO certificate is more than enough to put you in positive territory.

Am I really late to this and just noticed this now or is it very new? - the IHG website is a total disaster now. The biggest downside (for many of us) is that if you search for an award and it's not available on that date, you can no longer expand the calendar to see available dates.

I have Chase IHG with free night -- if I join ambassador program, will I still get the free night from the credit card in additional to the free weekend night from the ambassador program?

What are some good benefits of the ambassador program?

yes, for full benefits check on their site,  it is worth it if you are a frequent traveller and will be staying at intercontinental.

Anyone know of any current hotels where I can "buy" IHG points for under .5?
