Le Club Accor have announced a promotion that will run through 31 August, 2016. However hotel reservations must be made before 31 May, 2016 to qualify!
The more you stay, the greater your rewards:
– 1 stay of 2 nights or more = 500 points
– 2 stays of 2 nights or more = 3,000 points
– 3 stays of 2 nights or more = 6,000 points.
You need to register for this promotion by visiting this webpage and clicking on “connect” on the right-hand side of the page.
Although it is not immediately clear, you actually earn 500 points with your first stay, 2,500 points with your second, and 3,000 points with your third, making a total of 6,000 points.
6,000 Accor points can be converted into 6,000 Avios with Iberia Plus. (the Iberia Plus conversion ratio is better than the British Airways one, so make sure to choose Iberia and “Combine Your Avios” later) Alternatively, you can convert chunks of 2,000 Accor points into 40 euro vouchers that can be used at Accor properties – so 6,000 points would equal 120 euros.
Given the two night minimum stay requirement, there are unlikely to be any travel hacking / mattress run opportunities – the 6-night minimum means you earn no more than 1,000 Avios or 20 euros per night. But if your regular stays take you to Accor properties, make sure to register and book those 2+ night stays before the end of May…
