Hacked! 140,000 IHG Rewards Points Were Stolen From My Account

IHG Rewards ClubYesterday I tried logging into my IHG account but ran into some trouble. From what I recall, the last time I checked out my account was just before we left for our month long trip around South Asia (figure mid-July 2019).

When I went to log in through Award Wallet, I got a message that my pin didn’t match! This made little sense but I then attempted to reset my pin. I then ran into another issue. When  I typed my e-mail in for the reset, I received a message that the e-mail didn’t match for my account!

Once this happened, I figured that while we were away, my account must’ve been hacked! Continue reading Hacked! 140,000 IHG Rewards Points Were Stolen From My Account

Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City

kimpton eventiI recently shared details about what I booked with my last uncapped IHG anniversary free night.

Last year, I used my free night for a stay at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. After the stay, I felt the property was worth writing a review about. Check out my review of the Kimpton Monaco here.

This year, I was hoping to use my anniversary free night for a trip being planned. However, nothing really made sense for us so I decided to use my free night for another Kimpton stay.

We booked the Kimpton Eventi NYC for a little staycation. Continue reading Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City

What Did I Book With My Last Uncapped IHG Anniversary Free Night?

ihgThe time has come to make a booking with my final uncapped IHG Anniversary Free Night.

Unfortunately I had a hard time booking this night. It was of no use during any past or upcoming trips. Between finding availability or finding a property worth using the free night for I kept coming up empty.

We’ve looked forward to using these free nights over the years and to staying hotels which we would never pay to stay at. Continue reading What Did I Book With My Last Uncapped IHG Anniversary Free Night?

Interesting IHG Timeshare Offer I Won’t Be Booking

IHG TimeshareI recently wrote about A Hilton Grand Vacations Timeshare Offer We Couldn’t Refuse. With the offer, we’re essentially getting a free stay in Orlando for a couple of hours of our time!

Last summer, we saved around $300 in Fiji for 1.5 hours of our time.

I recently received an interesting IHG timeshare offer which we won’t be accepting. Continue reading Interesting IHG Timeshare Offer I Won’t Be Booking

Our Jerky IHG Rewards Club Elite Benefit At Kimpton

IHG Rewards ClubThis past weekend, the Michael W Travels family headed to Philadelphia. The primary reason for our short visit was to spend our first ever stay at a Kimpton Hotel.

Our very pricey Saturday night stay was booked with my IHG Anniversary Free Night, making this a really sweet deal.

While checking in, I gave the Kimpton Secret Password. However, the front desk didn’t know that a new password was out. Regardless, we were given a nice little credit. Continue reading Our Jerky IHG Rewards Club Elite Benefit At Kimpton

Where Are We Staying With My IHG Anniversary Free Night?

IHGThe IHG credit card from Chase bank is a keeper in most miles & points enthusiast’s credit card collection. The big draw for keeping the card is paying the $49 annual fee each year which comes with one free night at any IHG property in the world.

The perk will be changing soon and the free night will not be quite as generous. I wanted to make sure that one of my last IHG Anniversary free nights was at a great property. Continue reading Where Are We Staying With My IHG Anniversary Free Night?
