I have to accept them all within a month. How exactly will that work with activations? If I accept them all now will i have 3 months starting as soon as I activate them (accept the gift)?

Yep, soon as you activate that 3 months will just run down till done.

I should clarify. I have 3 separate 30 day prems

Aha. well once you click 1, you have 30 days from the start, then it's done. You can't stop it, turn it off or what have you. Once you click start, it winds down.

premium time stacks, so there's no need to wait to accept them.

So will I lose the other two? Not that it's a huge deal as I got them gifted (which I'm super appreciative about). But each of them I only have 29 days to accept them so I can't obviously wait. Oh well I'll just accept them after doing for research. I haven't found a clear answer.

 

Edit:Thanks MidnightShamalan

I know it's been answered but the second you accept one of the premium time gifts, the clock starts whether you are using it or not.

Thanks Niko, I was more curious how they stacked however since I received 3 individual one month prems.

Yes they do - accept the 2nd gift and it'll just add the premium time to the back end, extending the end of premium by another 3 months (or whatever the length of time is).  So...

 

Activate 1 month - one month of premium (yey!)

3 days later, activate another month - two months of premium (double yey!)

12 days later, activate another month - three months of premium (ultra yey!)

 

There's no gap in the premium time in this case.
