Says I'm not eligible, which kind of makes sense since I'm signed up for the other Forever promotion, which has overlapping times of validity.

Looks like accounts in US are excluded so no promos for me this summer Hilton has the only promo that works for me this summer 👎 The shareforever has so unrealistic goals that I will stay only one night at IHG this summer if even that!

Bugger

Completed the first accelerate but I guess it makes sense to stay out one round to get realitic promos the next round

Says I'm ineligible. Anyone able to get in? I'm suprised they would have an offer run concurrent with Share Forver

Loyalty lobby suggests its an offer for those ineligible for Share Forever promo and i'm happy to say it works for me here in the UK. 62,400 offer although pretty tricky to achieve it all

No joy for me either -- definitely seems intended to complement Share Forever.

I'm in the UK as well and could register, 55k points in total but as it's only for 3 months, i'll probably not get the bonus as 2 tasks are not worth doing and 1 I defo can't do and I can only drop 1 category

w00t Should be able to pick up at least 50K with one or two stays; definitely the easiest yet for me.

I also registered for Share Forever (which offered me just about nothing of value except for 8k points for the first night) and now can't get this one... disappointing that they didn't advise us that there would be an alternate promotion earlier!

I'm offered 48k points for staying 23(!) nights. 48k is not enough for even a single free night at the 50k properties, let alone 60k. Needless to say, I will not bother with this promo.

o I guess USA/S. America addresses excluded. I registered for both 30k Asia (3 stays exc China) and USA Share Forever, using a)Asia b)usa addresses respectively by temporarily switching address to USA
o My address was alreadyretored to Asia again and I could register for Accelerator 3Q2016

Targets Are

06.0k Stay once Get 6,000 <== YES (easy 6k any stay )
50.0k Stay More Earn More (25nights needed) <== NO (won't happen)
05.6k Earn More at Intercontinental (4 nights AP/ME/Africa) <== YES
03.5K Travel with App (3 stays) <== YES (will use App for booking 3 stays)
01.5k Corporate Account Bonus (2 stays) <== YES (always use Corp rate as gives Flex booking)
04.0k Member Exclusive Rate Bonus (2 stays) <== NO (points of us$20 value, corp is cheaper)
01.0k Earn when redeem <== YES (will buy online book for 100pts or so)
11.0k Your Achievement Bonus (for 6/7 completed) <== NO (only 5/7 for me)
05.0k June Bonus Offer (1 stay in June) <== YES (Have 28th June in BKK)
=====
87.0k
======

I'll just earn 6+5.6+3.5+1.5+1+5k ==> 22k

Share Forever signup was restricted to addresses in USA and South Americas, so eg UK, Asia could not participate

Appears Accelerator 3Q2016 is reverse of Forever for USA members only, as Asia, Europe allowed.

However you can register for both by temporarily changing your registered IHG address

Thanks for the heads up. That's easy 55K points for me with only 2 x 3 night stays to do.
