In June IHG was running a Reel Summer promo, where they had quizzes and everyday there were instant winners of movie tickets, popcorn, drinks and other stuff. I had won two tickets from the promotion, though none of them ever came in the mail/email. Anyone else participated and received it?

Update: IHG reached out to me and resent the tickets over to me in PDF format.

IHG is very strict on their promotions, many people have had their account closed down because of abusing them.

If you make a C+P reservation...
1) Does your CC get charged on the spot or at the hotel when you checkin?
2) Can you at some point switch the booking to a fully-points stay?

if you are a platinum member
and use points to book a hotel
do you have to pay the resort fee for a resort?

Why not just make a dummy booking? It should say everything you need to know before you confirm. And it's likely cancelable. Either way I don't know if IHG charges resort fees on award bookings but it should be easy to find out with a quick google search. Or call them

I just saw that IHG hotel rewards gave me points for using my visa cc at woodmere lanes in the 5 towns.  Apparently backstage (the bar there) is part of the dining club and I must have used a cc I once set up for the dining club to pay for bowling.  Good to know for those that have IHG points since there arent too many kosher restaurants participating in dining clubs.  Might be a good way to extend points expiration (not sure what ihg's policy is).
