Accor is not currently running a global bonus points promotion.
Last week I posted details of an exceptional Avios hotel promotion with Accor.
Accor is the hotel group behind Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure, Ibis and M Gallery, amongst others. It has teamed up with avios.com to offer 2,500 Avios points on stays until the end of the year. You can read my article on that deal here.
Accor has now released a similar deal for anyone who has a Lufthansa Miles & More account they want to build up.
It is a similar deal to the Avios promotion but even more generous. You will earn 3,000 Miles & More miles per stay. To earn the bonus, you must go to this Accor page and change your account to receive Miles & More miles. If you are not already an Accor member you can also join via this site. You do NOT have to register for the promotion itself. Note that any existing Accor points you have may be converted automatically to Miles & More – this will definitely happen if you have over 4,000 and may happen if you have fewer.
There are minimum stay requirements – 1 night at Sofitel, Pullman and MGallery hotels, at least 2 nights at Novotel, Suite Novotel, Mercure and Adagio hotels and 4 nights at ibis and ibis Styles.
It is not fully clear if you earn the 3,000 miles instead of the standard 500 miles per stay, or on top of them.
Further details can be found here at the Accor website. It states clearly that ‘all room rates are eligible’ – the small print actually excludes airline crew rates and the like, but any standard rate on the Accor website should be OK.
If you have an Air Canada Aeroplan account, there is an even more generous version of this promotion available which earns 5,000 Air Canada miles per stay. Full details of that promotion can be found here.
