Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn Accor hotel points as a non-guest in some of its UK bars and restaurants

Le Club AccorHotels has launched a credit card-based programme to encourage you to eat and drink in its bars and restaurants.

The deal has an interesting structure which could be a template for further deals.  All you need to do is ensure that the credit card in your Le Club AccorHotels profile is a Visa card.

To make life complicated, if the card in your profile is ALREADY a Visa card, you must delete it and add it back!

After that, you will automatically earn Le Club AccorHotels points at the rate of 1 per €1 (whoah, a whole 2% rebate!) at the bars and restaurants on this page when you pay with the same Visa card.

Earn Accor points in hotel bars and restaurants

There is only one good reason to do this.  The points SHOULD reset the expiry date of your Le Club AccorHotels account.  Whilst technically you need a stay every 12 months to keep your points alive, historically any earning activity on your account has done the job.  There just weren’t many ways of creating activity without a stay before this!

Full details including the list of participating venues are on the Accor website here.

The offer runs to 31st May and is only for UK-based Accor members.
