UPDATE – JANUARY 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Accor is not currently running a global bonus points promotion.
Le Club AccorHotels, the loyalty programme for Novotel, Ibis, Sofitel, Mercure etc, has launched an online quiz to teach you more about the programme.
The great news is that you will receive 1,050 to 1,100 Le Club AccorHotels points for doing it! The points post instantly.
The quiz is called ‘Rewards Quest’. Whilst I call it a quiz, the number of points you earn is not dependent on how you answer the questions. Get them right or get them wrong, you will still get the points.
The questions are slightly different if you do not have status in Le Club. I was only able to earn 1,050 points as a Platinum member whilst a base level member should be able to receive the full 1,100.
If your account is set up to automatically convert points to miles, you will presumably receive these as miles instead. If not, you will need to earn a few more before you can do anything with them.
The minimum conversion to Avios points is 3,000 points. You should always transfer Accor points into Iberia and not British Airways because the conversion rate is 1:1 compared with 2:1!
The minimum conversion into an Accor hotel discount is 2,000 points which gets you €40.
At certain times in the past it has been possible to convert points to miles irrespective of your balance. I don’t think you can do that at the moment but the option may come back. It is worth claiming your free points just in case.
Note: I had trouble getting the quiz to work on my PC, both in Chrome and in Internet Explorer. It worked fine on my iPad. Your experience may differ.
You can log-in and play “Rewards Quest” here. It will run until 14th February.
