Bits and pieces for Wednesday (cheap Avios via Tesco, free Accor status, Marriott lifetime status)

News from the beach:

360 Avios or 375 Virgin Flying Club miles for £3 when you buy this Cliff Richard CD from Tesco Direct for £3. Points show when you click Pre-Order although do not show on the web page.

Instant Accor hotels (Novotel, Sofitel, Ibis etc) Platinum status via this View from the Wing post as long as it hasn’t been pulled by the time you read this.

Via Loyalty Traveller, Marriott is reducing the qualification threshold for lifetime status and will be making it an official part of the programme rather than a secret benefit!

Is American Express Platinum worth the £450 fee?
Which credit card should I use to pay for our holiday?
