What the....

IHG said:
Oh no! Based on your current earning preference, you aren't eligible for this offer. But here are other you might like....

You must be registered to earn QF not IHG points. Yoi can switch to see if you get a good offer
No. Definitely IHG Rewards points. Have never seen this error and nothing on the Flyertalk thread either.

I've received a confirmation email and the offer appears under my offers but blank.

@JohnK sounds like you need to ring them up and find out why.

I hadn't seen this thread before I got my email (just now).

Or possibly try again now that the emails are out.

Did you get the email @JohnK ?

40,000 Double Your Stay
Earn double points on every stay, starting with your second stay, up to 40,000 bonus points
3,000 February Bonus Offer
Stay once in February and get 3,000 bonus points.

I think I got the dud!
I may have one stay at the IC Sydney in April so no bonus points for me unless I throw in a cheap HI stay the night before!

Edit: The crosses must be what you get for cutting and pasting!

Thanks @QF WP and @SYD.

I sent IHG an email and they wanted me to send them a screen shot of my issue.

I received email today and when I went to Register there was mention I was already registered. Not very inspiring although 3 out of 4 targets should be achievable.

Earn 41,700 total bonus points

- 6,600 Earn More, Faster
Earn 6,600 bonus points when you book 3 Bonus Points Package stay(s) and get to your next reward faster.

- 5,600 Stay at Holiday Inn
Stay at 2 Holiday Inn hotel(s) including Holiday Inn Resort and Holiday Inn Club vacations and earn 5,600 bonus points.

- 5,600 Saturday Stay Bonus
Stay 2 weekend(s), including a Saturday night and another night, and earn 5,600 bonus points.

- 10,000 Stay More, Earn More
Get closer to the rewards you want when you stay 5 night(s) and earn 10,000 bonus points.

- 13,900 Your Achievement Bonus
Complete 4 of the 4 offers and earn (an additional) 13,900 bonus points.

The 21,200 bonus points should be easy to achieve. The bonus points package at one of my stays is $50/night more expensive than prepaid rate. No thanks.

Weekend / Saturday night stays seems to be a recurring theme in these offers.

I can report that my first bonus points posted at the same time as the underlying stay which qualified for them, about 48 hours after checkout.
