Properties not to use these for if AH wont check in:

1- IC HKG
2- IC Dubai per 12hrs
3- I had issues at the IC Paris. They only let me check in after the account holders emailed the hotel with their passport info and permission foe me to use their free night.

WARNING:  Don't  do this transaction with     (nuttha_s).  This person has defrauded two sellers recently. He repeatedly calls the hotel pretending to be the account owner, then during  check in, he checks in with multiple people and hotel cancels the reservation and you will end up with loss of your free night cert and hotel will even charge you cancellation fee.  Something very fishy.  What really is going on is very suspicious! I added the 2nd guest name he wanted via IHG rep on phone  He will then dispute the payment with paypal  for full refund. Won't settle or compromise. In the end, you lost the free night and the money he paid you is gone with paypal dispute..  He or she may come with different nickname but remember he is she is based in Thailand.

No guest checks in with his/her credit card at the hotel.

Thanks. So what happens to my credit card used at the time of booking?

You always run the risk of the third party renter using a temporary credit card with a $0 credit card authorization or a pre-paid credit card - both of which may be exhausted if he/she causes any damage to the room or racks up major incidental charges like restaurant bills, etc..

Net net is you run a risk subletting a room (they can literally confiscate your points) but the hope is that most people on this Forum are honest. Best recommendation I can give you is to ask for recommendations from other members or use the room itself.

The problem is that since he is using the Certificate from his account, it is linked to his profile which ultimately has his credit card number tied to it (unless you deactivate the credit card from your account beforehand).

This is the best way for both sides for peace of mind.I never had any problems buying and selling to members with established history.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

I am selling one night for $160.

I have a question for the experts, hope someone can answer it quickly:

How does it work? I understand I book in my name and add an additional guest, and that guest check in.  I have to give my credit card number for making the booking. Will I be on hook for any charges that are incurred by the guest? How to protect myself from such charges?

Thanks.
Why would you even have a valid active credit card attached to your profile in the first place? They anyway ask to present a card by check in so what do you gain? Use a VCN, gift card or canceled credit card and that way you have no problem.
