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.

thank you to those who weighed in. i think the "problematic hotels" is helpful - wish i would've known before and I wouldn't have done it!
anyway, regrettably refunded the money but hoping he does the right thing and at least compromises
Is it the same guy @ nuttha_s ?
This guy bought from me. i think he messed up by repeatedly calling and entire family checking in. Room got canceled and my free night expired the next day and no return or refund issued by the hotel as it is expired. Now this guy wants complete refund and disputes the payment on paypal. I tried compromising  by giving him back $100 and he still wants the entire $170. I never had this problem with anyone before.

I don’t see why he deserves even $1 back. You sold him your free night. He is obligated to use it by the expiration date. If he doesn’t it is his problem not yours as long as you made the reservation properly

Just FYI routine DDF market value is $140-160 for these.

FYI routine DDF market makes no sense at all and is not based on value, just on how much the large-count posters ask, and everyone else follows, "cuz this is the market price"

Like can someone explain to me why an IHG cert. good at top tier properties goes for a little bit more than a cat. 4 Marriott?!
Now there are much less top tier IHG properties than Marriott, but IMO $150 is an embarrassment

I really hope you win. This is outrageous by him based on his own admissions it was his fault what happened and he should definitely be banned from buying and selling here

Its all based on supply and demand if there are lots of nights available and no buyers then sellers will lower the price and vice versa

Sure finding what the exact market value price is is arbitrary to an extent however, if you’re trying to sell and there is an established price point set, then it does matter. Good luck to those trying to sell for $200. It’s all supply and demand issue. Basic economics.

I hope he (nuttha_s)  is banned so he doesnt do this to other sellers and DD readers. Another seller had same issue with this same buyer and ended up refunding money back via paypal.  In my case, the free night is expired too. So what do I benefit by refunding him full money $170 while my free night is gone? Why would he not take my $100 money back offer?
He admitted pretending to be me and calling the hotel and then have family wiht kids check in. How the heck am i responsible if the hotel cancels  it then?

The person is based in Thailand. pls be careful not to deal with any one from overseas for transaction like this.

IMO it has nothing to do with actual s&d.
Right when this thread was created, on the first page people were asking $150.
IMO the price is based on a chain reaction, 1 person asking x amount, another person wanting to sell his cert.
Sees that asking price, and figures
Sure finding what the exact market value price is is arbitrary to an extent however, if you’re trying to sell and there is an established price point set, then it does matter. Good luck to those trying to sell for $200. 
So he to goes by that price. and so on and so forth

So you should consider buying all the ones for 150 and then selling them for 200, establishing a new “chain reaction”. No brainer if your logic is correct.

Honest,
Are you telling me if for instance a union is formed and everyone charges $200, there wouldn't be a demand for the cert.?

I think there most certainly will be.

This is not true at all. There was a period when there were very few of these available and the price jumped due to IHG announcing they were discontinuing uncapped night. Once they brought them back although for a limited time the price went back down
