Good deal – earn 6,000 bonus Avios for 3 x 2-night Accor stays

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

Accor Hotels, which own Novotel / Ibis / Mercure / M Gallery / Sofitel / Pullman / Raffles / Swissotel / Fairmont etc, has brought back its potentially generous promotion to earn 6,000 bonus Avios!

You will earn 6,000 Avios (or a variable pile of other airline miles) if you complete three x 2-night stays at Accor properties between 13th September and 19th January 2020.

That is clearly a decent deal, although the two night restriction per stay could be tricky. If you can make it work around your work or leisure plans, however, you are looking at a good result.

You must book your stays between now and 27th September. You need to book via the Accor website or a corporate travel agent. Stays booked via hotel wholesalers such as Expedia, Hotels.com, booking.com etc will not count.

Existing bookings do NOT count. These need to be cancelled and rebooked.  Only bookings made after today, 3rd September, are eligible.

Accor 6000 points promotion

How to register

More importantly, you MUST register for this promotion via the offer website. All you need to do is to go to that page and log in.

What is the bonus?

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 bonus points

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

Accor 6000 bonus points promotion

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

British Airways Executive Club Avios: 2:1

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

Emirates Skywards: 2:1

Etihad Guest: 2:1

Miles & More: 2:1

The secret with converting to Avios is to send them to an Iberia Plus account to get the higher 1:1 conversion rate.  You can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them to British Airways Executive Club.  You can’t transfer out of Iberia Plus accounts until they are 90 days old, so if you open one specifically for this offer then you might have a slight delay before you can move the Avios across.

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 27th September even though you do not need to stay until mid January.

Comments

  1. Unfortunately the link doesn’t work for me…
    “Unfortunately your status does not qualify you for this offer.”

  2. Do bookings part paid using their points count ?

  3. The ts & cs are impressively vague. It doesn’t state that stays paid for in points (2000 for €40 discounts) are not valid 🙂

    The picture at the top of the registration page does have the logo of the classic level of status on and given the above comment perhaps only customers with classic status are currently eligible (whether that was the intention or not).

  4. There is no link to additional Ts & Cs, how do we know which are participating hotels ??

To take advantage of this offer, Le Club AccorHotels loyalty programme members must register for the offer (between September 3, 2019, through 11:59 p.m. Central European Time (CET), and September 27, 2019) prior to their stay by clicking on the “Log on” button above and then following the instructions. Only bookings, which have been made after successful registration via the log-on button are eligible for this bonus offer.

      This Rewards points bonus is offered in addition to the Rewards points and Status points that are usually earned by the member on completing an eligible stay, in accordance with the Le Club AccorHotels general conditions of use
      This offer can be used only 1 time per member during its validity period. The first stay booked and completed following registration for the offer is eligible for the Rewards points credit, as per the offer conditions.
      4. This offer is valid for a member’s stay from September 13, 2019 to January 19, 2020 in one of the participating hotels, and booked between September 3, 2019, through 11:59 p.m. Central European Time (CET), and September 27, 2019.
      5. The stay must be a minimum of 2 nights.
      6. Any consecutive stays (check-out and check-in same day) in the same hotel, will be considered as a single stay. This single stay will be eligible once on the “The more you stay, the more your earn” offer.
      7. For the purposes of this offer, a stay is understood to be one (1) booking by a Le Club AccorHotels member for one or several rooms. In other words, bookings that include more than one (1) room will be counted as just one (1) stay. The earlier check-out date is counted while the credit of Rewards and Status points is calculated.
      In other words, a Le Club Accorhotels member will receive eligible points and nights for the room which he/she vacates first.
      8. To be eligible for this offer, stays must be booked directly via AccorHotels (via the official AccorHotels websites, the AccorHotels mobile apps, the AccorHotels call centre, directly at a hotel) or through a traditional travel agency whose booking system is automatically connected to the AccorHotels booking office. Stays booked via a reseller, tour operator or third-party online travel agent (such as expedia.com, booking.com, etc.) will not be eligible for this offer.

      10. The Le Club AccorHotels Rewards points will be credited to the member’s account within 10 days of the member checking out.
      11. This offer cannot be combined with other current promotional offers or advantages and does not apply to groups.
      If the stay meets the terms and conditions for several offers, only the Rewards points linked to the most generous offer (meaning that allows you to earn the highest number of Rewards points) will be credited to your account.
      12. Any stay partly or entirely paid with Le Club AccorHotels Rewards points will not be eligible to receive this offer.
      13. This offer is subject to availability. General sales terms and conditions apply for reserved public rates specific to each hotel.
      14. Please specify the reference 010969 in all your communications with AccorHotels call centers or customers care services related to this offer.

  5. OT but IBeria: how likely do you think is it that Iberia will eventually write off negative Avios balances from their last year’s promo campaign. I don’t want to credit anything to Iberia whilst proactively knowing that they will deduct 1.5k Avios from me straight away (and others I know have balances of up to 9k Avios).

  6. All well and good but it’s such a clunky website to make bookings through. Several times I have gotten nearly all the way through a booking and it hangs up, or the payment part doesn’t work.

    Maybe the French do things differently but I just don’t trust the site.

  7. If this is the same as a previous offer, remember that stays at Ibis Budget, Ibis Styles and Ibis don’t count even though they are Accor Hotels. Only their more premium brands count ie Mercure upwards.

    • Lady London says:

      Ibis Budget does not count but the others you mention do. Formule1 also does not count but think that’s out of scope of most readers of HfP.

      To check, when you book on the Accor website there are boxes you can tick so it will only show you hotels where you can earn / use points. (Don’t use any points on any stay you want to count for a promotion.)

      Beware some hotels prob don’t count for promos yet such as 25Hours so read ts and cs carefully.

  8. Unfortunately I never seem to qualify for this, my corporate rate booked with the hotel direct is unable to be booked on line, this I miss out. Anyone else have the same issue?

    • Lady London says:

      I think you can book direct with Accor by calling them. Apparently another Accor hotel could book you too.

      UK Accor has a few cust-service type numbers but I use 01224 398802.

      • Lady London says:

        @Stuart in your case I’d call the hotel direct and make the bookings that qualify. Pretty sure that’s in the ts and cs as a direct method of booking.
