Have I retained my Accor Platinum hotel status? I can’t tell

Until mid 2016, American Express Platinum cardholders received Platinum status in Le Club AccorHotels.  This was worth having, because it was the only top tier hotel status provided by Amex.

The benefit was dropped – you no longer receive any sort of Accor status via American Express Platinum.  Those of us, including myself, who had the status were due to lose it on Sunday night.

And yet ….. if I log into my Accor account I see this – I am still Platinum, apparently:

If I click ‘Print My Card’, on the other hand, it shows a Platinum card but with an expiry date of 12/17.

Accor has in the past rolled over status, apparently at random.  I did a grand total of zero Accor stays last year.  I would be surprised if my status was rolled over because Accor went out of its way to make requalification harder for 2018, stopping bonus points from counting towards the total required.

Will I drop down to Gold, or even Classic, at some point this week?  Let’s see.
