    And imagine me doing it as a vegetarian who had no intention of buying meat until I could get it for free....

    Where I live perishables like meat cannot be donated by individuals -- the risks of spoilage and illness are too significant. So no greater good here just me trying to hold them to the promotion and give it away to family

    It can also leave you being banned by then"casino" (I.e. IHG in this case) if what you are doing is obvious. Then the same person will tell us they can no longer stay at IHG and how can you help me?

    Neil, the cancellation policy was identical on both reservations.

    Btw, you guys are welcome to continue discussing it, but I've given up. I've told them to keep the reservation canceled.

    When I re-created the reservation it was not. The res. in the 3rd party site showed that if I booked the res.was already in the penalty. The IHG site showed I had a day.

    I think you are wise to leave it alone. You tried to play the system and they caught you. If you don't want to be blacklisted, I would recommend not trying to pull this again. IMO opinion they caught exactly what you were doing and that's why they canceled your res.

    Can you post a screen shot of your reservation to show this, as you did with the one you were comparing it too?

    It really doesn't matter because he is wisely not pursuing this any further.
