Happy Monday morning! Today that means dealing with an exhausted kid (and mommy) from a busy weekend, getting dressed for school, packing a lunch, and dealing with a changing terms on the IHG Into the Nights promo! After some debate, I decided to go all-in on this promo recently and have completed four out of five needed nights, including both night Saturday stays. All I needed was one more stay that I complete and book via the the mobile app to earn my two award nights bonus.
Sounds easy, right?!
Well, it should have been, but after seeing the tweet and post from Miles for Family about how her terms had changed regarding the mobile app requirement I just knew the odds were high that it had happened to me too.
I give you exhibit A, my original set of tasks that includes booking a stay via the mobile app.
I now give you exhibit B, today the promo in my account clearly says complete two stays booked via the mobile app. That is 100% not what it said as recent as at least a week or so ago when I double checked it.
You may wonder why not just book all of the stays via the mobile app just in case….well, for one I’m not thrilled about having more apps than I really need, but that also means forgoing the cash back I earned on booking the stays by first going through ebates.com, so I only want to do that on the stays that it is 100% necessary.
An IHG Supervisor reportedly wasn’t willing to honor the original offer for Miles for Family’s husband after she called in, though they did award him 10,000 points as a courtesy. I have not yet reached out to IHG, but I will today and will report back. I can say that 10,000 courtesy points won’t cut it since I am already so far in, though I’ll remain hopeful that there is a happy solution for this until proven otherwise. In the meantime, check your offers to be sure they haven’t changed on you. Developing….
