News in brief:
Win 10,000 Avios and a weekend break with Mercure
Mercure, the mid-market brand within the Accor hotel group, is currently running a free draw.
The prize is 10,000 Le Club AccorHotels points and a weekend break for two, with breakfast, in a Mercure hotel.
10,000 Le Club AccorHotels points would convert into 10,000 Avios points via Iberia Plus (but only 5,000 Avios via ba.com, so don’t do that!). Alternatively, you could turn them into €200 of Accor vouchers.
The page to enter is here. All you need is enter your name, email and Le Club AccorHotels membership number. That’s it.
The closing date is 19th May. Thanks to Steve.
