I was expecting not be jerked around like they’re doing. They act like being a superhost is something great and superhosts are rewarded for being so awesome. The rewards are bullcrap. I was expecting something I can use. Something that benefits ME.
I’m going to disagree mildly… I have gotten three $100 travel vouchers and used all three.
When I stay in Airbnbs I search first with two filters on: SH and Instant book. I only take them off if there isn’t anything suitable with them on. I’ve had more than one guest tell me they only stay with SH. Is it a ton? No, it’s handful. They aren’t in a position to give us anything of substantial monetary value. They can take money out of one pocket to put in another but then they have to make that up somewhere. I’d rather have another travel voucher than an airbnb book or quarterly magazine. I did appreciate the first aid kit and CO detector I got when I first signed up.
The SH help line used to be better but I’m not so sure anymore. The exclusive stuff? That definitely doesn’t exist yet.
We we just notified of being SH 4 times in a row. Not only did I get the “regular” Superhost $100 voucher a couple weeks back; today I got a message giving me a second $100 voucher for being SH 4 times in a row.
Granted, $100 isn’t a huge deal, considering the millions (billions) they are making off of us. But it sure as heck is better than nothing, and will pay for our Labor Day trip…
I got super host today too! I am excited. So what the rewards aren’t that exciting, its not like it was terribly hard to get either. I don’t even know what I would hope to be rewarded with if I was daydreaming about it- what would be a good reward? $100 credit would be nice but I assume that is if you do it for a year or something?
I’ve only been doing ABB for 2 years and been a super host the whole time, last time I got my $100 voucher I also got a second one a few days later. I assumed it was an error. But I’ve used both to make bookings and they both worked.
The don’t allow that. I’m not sure how they regulate but someone posted here recently that she had an account and then tried to put her bosses new investment property under her name and got them both banned.
