Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New offer to earn Accor points from The Economist launched

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

There is a generous Avios / Economist deal currently running which we covered here, and it is also now available via the BA website.

Le Club AccorHotels is running a similar dealYou can sign up here.

You will earn up to 12,000 Le Club AccorHotels points with a two-year Economist subscription.

1 Accor points = 1 Avios point in Iberia Plus if you choose to convert them.  (Do NOT convert into British Airways Avios as the rate is 2:1.  Convert to Iberia and move them across to BA via ‘Combine My Avios’).  If you want Avios, however, choose the superior Avios deal I highlighted above.

Accor Economist promotion

More interestingly …… 12,000 Accor points are also worth a €240 (£215) discount on an Accor hotel stay.  Given that a 2-year Economist subscription (print and digital) is £315, this is a very strong rebate if you were after the magazine in the first place.

The offer is not valid with US or Canadian digital subscriptions, which is unfortunate as these are cheaper than the European ones.

If you are self employed and can offset the cost of the magazine as a business expense, it is even more interesting.  The offer runs until 30th November.
