Promotion not offered outside of USA?

Nope "The 'Set Your Sights' promotion is available to all IHG Rewards Club members worldwide and is a great opportunity to kick start the new year with bonus offers for activity across IHG's nine hotel brands. The more offers members complete, the more rewards they can earn. "

Got my offers, not that great, also want me to sign up to dining program with 10k bonus points as part of the promo, undecided but have until end of April to decide I guess.
 
Credit cards which earn frequent flyer points is a popular way to earn frequent flyer points. You can receive thousands of points on everyday spend. And, many of these cards offer generous signup bonuses! Compare to find the credit card that best suits your needs.

IHG Dining Rewards? I just signed up paying $269 but no bonus points.

I haven't got a chance of completing any of the offers as they have set the bar too high :(.
These days I just do not have enough stays at IHG hotels.

My main hotels are Hilton and now Rydges (for those out of the way places) because they give lots more benefits for their frequent stayers.

Pretty crappy for me:

- 8k points if I book 2x with app. Most of my stays are through corp TA
- 9k for 7 nights. Doable.
- 4.8k for two w/e stays. Probably manage one.
- 2k for 1x "Business Success" rate. Whatever that is.
- 6k for 3x (yes, three) Points & Cash....
- 10k to join IHG Dining Rewards. Probably the most intriguing. I'm IHG Gold. Is it worth Plat, free night and 25% discount? Does it matter if I sign up before end of Dec or wait until Jan? (Noting the promo technically doesn't start until 01 Jan).

I cheated. I couldn't wait so used free-proxyserver.com and signed up.

A total of 71,900 points on offer.

* Go Places with the IHG App

Earn 3,200 bonus points when you download, sign in and book 4 stay(s) with the IHG App. The IHG App allows you to get mobile-exclusive rates, access your virtual membership card and more.

* Book Directly with IHG

Book 4 stays directly through IHG and earn 2,600 bonus points. From our website to your mobile device, book with us for the best rate.

* Stay More, Earn More

Get closer to the rewards you want when you stay 10 nights and earn 10,400 bonus points.

* Getaway bonus

Stay at 1 Holiday Inn Resort® or Holiday Inn Club Vacations® destination, and earn 6,000 bonus points.

* Business Success
Book 1 stay(s) with Business Success special rate and earn 2,000 bonus points.

* Globetrotter Bonus

Earn 11,200 bonus points for staying at 3 IHG hotel(s) outside of your country of residence. You’ll earn for one hotel stay per country.

* Eat, Drink and Earn

Spend USD $80 on food or beverages at IHG hotels and earn 500 bonus points.

* Your Achievement Bonus

Complete 7 of 7 offers to earn an additional 36,000 bonus points.

Why the push for the app? I prefer to use a desktop over a mobile phone. I have had 2 smartphones and have not downloaded a single app.

I am guessing the 4 stays required to be booked with IHG app also count as the 4 stays to be booked directly with IHG? Is booking via Ebates or Mr Rebates classed as booking directly with IHG?

Holiday Inn Batam is a Resort and the Business Success Rate is ~SGD50 more than advance purchase so that takes care of 2 hurdles but I cannot see the terms and conditions if 1 night is enough or whether they expect more. Anyone able to see if 1 night is OK?

If Holiday Inn Batam is a Resort then is it a Holiday Inn hotel as well? The 3 Holiday Inns outside of Australia should be relatively simple to do but it sounds like they need to be in 3 different countries outside of my country of residence?

I have to make 8 bookings via the app, 10 nights and 3 weekends. Going to ignore this one and maybe next year's will be achievable.
