IHG dining rewards program termination?

I am an IHG Dining Rewards member who has just realised that IHG Dining Rewards program seems to be terminating at end of year (announced 15 Dec 15). Somehow I missed all correspondance and did not see an article on ausbt. Request clarification of status, and if confirmed that program being cancelled/ terminated, recommend widest dissemination so others. Thanks.....

The original version started in 1992 called Pacific Privilege and ran from various locations after that

I worked for the company that started the program  for a bit over 10 years renewing memberships over the phone.

It was great training in telesales

The program was withdrawn from sale (new and renewals) on Dec 15 last year. As the memberships are for a year, those that signed up in December last year will have benefits honoured through to December this year.

At the time, IHG had said that it was going to be replaced in the new year, but nothing seems to have become of that.

Thanks for the update. Thats what I thought.

Pity the program termination has not been widely publicised, as it seems that it has been done quite covertly by IHG management. As a long term member of IHG Privilege (more recently IHG Dining Rewards), I found out by mistake, with no emails and/or correspondance.

So much so, IHG has also recently changed its terms and conditions to cover them legally. It basically says that as long as they put it on their website, members have no rights if IHG decide to change benefits/ entitlements/ program details.

Hope all current members exploit their membership benefits: while they last......!!!
