  1. Raffles your guide to finding the PDF with the full list isn’t easy I will can’t find that phrase after clicking on the link! Any chance of rephrasing ?

  2. I wanted to book one of the Thailand intercontinentals for next Easter, but they don’t have a single reward night open for any date in the next 12 months, so no chance you’d be able to book one of those.

    Not sure if they’ve closed of all inventory until after the increase, or whether they just never have any.

  3. Any thoughts of a lack of a non-American promotion this period? I have not even had the stay X get Y email.

    After having unrealistic targets in the last 3 big promotions, this is yet more disappointment with this chain. Marriott is getting the benefit.

    • You don’t need to have got the email to register for the stay x, get y offer. Loyalty Lobby has a number of different offers, depending on how many nights you think you might be staying. Go there and see which one is best for you.

  4. Have to point out that reward stays have the same cancellation policy with the BFR. In the rare cases where hotels are extremely busy, reward stays are made non-cancellable too. It can happen so it pays to double check before you book.

  5. The HI Wembley is totally blacked out after July 9th, with only a small amount of availability unto then.

    How long have folks been waiting for setyoursights challenge points to post? I have done all mine a week ago and they havd not posted with the stay credit. In past promotions I often got thd challenge points at same time as the stays posted or very soon after. Cause for alarm or should I leave ig another week before posting missing points request?

  7. Adam W says:

    Hmmm….I’ve just booked the IC HK and been charged the “old” rate.

  8. Thanks for the heads up, just saved 5,000 points!
