Here is my final batch of odds and ends from my inbox!

250 Accor points (€5) for joining e-rewards

Market research group e-rewards has teamed up with Le Club Accorhotels.

My general view on e-rewards is well known – I don’t think their surveys offer a decent return for the time taken to complete them.  (I know some HFP readers disagree with me on this!)  That said, you should always sign up when there is a good bonus with a  partner as this triggers with just one survey.

You can open multiple accounts with e-rewards as long as you use different email addresses.

The Accor tie-in offers 250 Le Club Accorhotels points for signing up.  This is worth €5 in Accor vouchers although you will need 2,000 points in order to convert.  It is therefore only of interest to active Accor members.

Gran Melia Rome entrance

35% discount in the Melia January sale

There are three days left to book a room for 2015 in the Melia sale.  This is likely to be of special interest if you are heading down to Spain at any point this year, where Melia has a huge presence.

The standard sale discount is 30%.  It increases to 35% if you sign up to their Melia Rewards scheme before booking.  This is worthwhile as their points can be converted into Avios via Iberia Plus and then transferred to BA or avios.com.  The Avios conversion information for Melia is shown here.

The sale booking link is here.

Avios Suitcase

New Avios suitcase stickers

If you have been taking part in the Avios Suitcase promotion on Facebook, a few more 20 point ‘stickers’ have appeared in recent weeks since I last mentioned it.  One relates to Instagram and another is (yet another) Rocketmiles badge.

If you don’t know what I am talking about, this article will explain.  (Thanks to Ashley)

    Accor, I changed to BA for the recent promo, now when I’ve changed back to Iberia
    and try to set up transfer without minimum, using the well-known method, I just get an error message “The request failed and the error is unknown or undefined”

    Can anyone figure out how to use Points toward bookings online when the booking page states ‘Booking with your points’?

    I cant see any options in any hotel Ive tried to book that will allow me to part book with points??

    I’ve emailed support but their answer simply confuses the matter. they say that some hotels offer it, some dont. Even when its listed as allowing you to book with points,sometimes you cant. Ive asked for clarity, and to be shown a page where i can see the option, and where on the page the option is, because i cant see anywhere an option to do it
