UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2020:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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. 

Click here for our article on Accor’s current ‘500 or 1,000 bonus points per stay’ promotion. You need to book by 16th November and stay by 13th December 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

Le Club AccorHotels, the loyalty scheme for Ibis, Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure etc, is offering a generous bonus if you register with Le Club Meeting Planner.  This is their ‘club within the club’ for anyone who books events or meetings.

If you sign up before 30th November, you will receive 1,000 Le Club points just for registering.  The link is here.

As 2,000 Accor points can be redeemed for €40 of credit or 2,000 Iberia Plus Avios, you are effectively getting 1,000 Avios or €20 for joining.  Note, however, that you need at least 2,000 points to get a voucher and 3,000 points to convert to Iberia.

As a registered Meeting Planner, you will earn Le Club AccorHotels points with every event or group booking (7+ rooms) you make.  The rate is 1 point per €2.

Note that the Accor website for the offer is not very well translated and it is not totally clear that the sign-up bonus is separate from the bonus for organising your first event.  I received a press release for this deal which does clarify that the two are totally separate.
