Important dates for your diary – offers about to close which you shouldn’t miss

Here is the latest edition of our fortnightly weekend feature which summarises offers that are ending soon. It pulls together the different deals mentioned on our Avios Promos, Hotel Promos, Credit Cards and regular article pages.


The key deadline may be 15th April, which is the last day for Amex Platinum cardholders to get free top tier Accor Platinum status.  There is probably (just) time to still apply for Amex Platinum (review), receive the card and activate your Accor status if you get onto it this weekend.

  1. Peter K says:

    I just got a platinum for my wife. When applying for all the hotel benefits it says do you want them for you plat supplementary cardholder. Can we both get them then. Certainly going to try it!

  2. Rob would be very thankful if you can answer my query. Thanks to this site I already have Accor Plat expiring in Jul’16. If I take out new Amex Plat (I do have the 20K upgrade from Gold offer) and apply for Accor Plat..will this extend my Accor status beyond Jul’16?
