News in brief:
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.
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.

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 another Rocketmiles badge.
If you don’t know what I am talking about, this article will explain.
