REGISTER NOW – 6,000 Avios or €120 for 3 x 2-night Accor stays

Yesterday I wrote about two good new hotel promotions – double points from Hilton and a new round of Accelerate from IHG Rewards Club.

Here is a third possibility as you plan your stays for the Summer.

Accor hotels, which own Novotel / Ibis / Mercure / M Gallery / Sofitel / Pullman etc, has brought back its potentially generous promotion to earn 6,000 bonus Avios.

You will earn €120 of Accor hotel vouchers or 6,000 Avios (or a variable pile of other airline miles) if you complete three x 2-night stays at Accor properties between 9th May and 3rd September.

You must book your stays between 25th April and 23rd May.  Even super-cheap weekend rooms booked under the ‘Happy Mondays’ offer will count!

You MUST register for this promotion via the offer website.

Existing bookings do NOT count.  These need to be cancelled and rebooked.

Accor 6000 Avios promo

The bonus is dropped into your account in the form of 6,000 Le Club AccorHotels points:

Your first 2-night stay comes with 500 bonus points

Your second 2-night stay comes with 2,500 points

Your third 2-night stay comes with 3,000 points

Whilst the Accor website for this promotion focuses on taking points, you can convert your 6,000 bonus points (plus base points) into airline miles.  For the main programmes I write about, the conversion rates are:

Flying Blue 2:1 or BA:  2:1

Iberia Avios:  1:1  (so don’t convert to BA!)

Emirates:  2:1

Etihad:  2:1

Miles & More:  2:1

By converting to Avios in the Iberia programme, you are effectively ‘paying’ 2 Eurocents per Avios compared to taking the Accor hotel vouchers.  The hotel vouchers are therefore a better deal unless you have no plans to use them.  In all of the other airline schemes you are paying 4 Eurocents per mile which is very poor.

You can find full details of the offer, and the link to register, on the Accor website here.  Remember that bookings must be made by 23rd May.

PS.  Remember that, from 1st January this year, bonus points from Accor promotions do not count towards status.  This offer is not a quick way of helping you retain Gold or Platinum for next year.

  1. Where did the HK Intercontinental article go?

  2. Gareth says:

    OT- I’m struggling to find a card to put my current spend through, done 10k annum through IHG black, done the IHG white offer, Hilton one time offer done, and two months to wait until I can get another Amex gold or ba Avila cc…. any ideas?

    • Virgin MBNA Black?

      btw Hilton BarclayCard maybe possible to get sign up bonus again in the future if you leave it long enough?

      • Gareth says:

        Thanks, I’ve still got the card, will cancel and retry at some stage. If I’m going to pay I would rather wait for the higher promo offer, cancelled my last virgin card two months ago too. Probably going to put spend through wife’s Amex gold for now as it gives some flexibility!

        • mark2 says:

          Maybe: you have to keep the card for 12 months to get the cash which may prevent you from getting another Amex credit card.

    • Brighton Belle says:

      SPG Amex. Intro bonus will get you a free night in some Marriot properties if you move the SPG points over. If you get an intro from Rob you’ll get a bigger bonus.

    The happy Monday offer just got pulled out:
    “This offer has now ended, BUT COME BACK NEXT WEEK to discover our NEW SET OF EXCLUSIVE OFFERS – SECRET DEALS BY ACCORHOTELS, giving you access to at least 20% discount and exclsuive hotel packages in the UK.”

    • Gadgeteer1066 says:

      I had just signed up for their 6,000 point 3 stay promotion and waited until today to book my first stay and… yes, you are right; it has gone. Wonder how secret deals will compare? Shame they couldn’t have launched one straight after the other finished!
