Right now on FaceBook the AMEX Link, Like, Love App is offering a $50 statement credit when you spend $200 at Intercontinental Hotels by March 31st. I was thinking that if you didn’t have any stays coming up that you could simply purchase an Ambassador Membership for $200 and get the $50 credit making it only $150.
The main benefit of the Ambassador program is you get a paper certificate for a buy one get one free night at any Intercontinental. Depending on the property this could save you anywhere from $200 to $400. Other benefits include:
– Guaranteed room upgrades
– Fresh fruit and mineral water
– Late checkout
– Complimentary paid TV film per sta
The only risk with this promo is whether AMEX will consider an online purchase of Ambassador as an Intercontinental hotel purchase. I have a feeling they may not, but you can always call customer service and ask them to honor it because after all, it’s the same company.
