Club Eurostar launched a double points promotion yesterday as part of its partnership with Le Club AccorHotels.
As we covered here, you can transfer Accor points into Club Eurostar, and Club Eurostar points into Le Club AccorHotels. I don’t recommend it, because you lose value, but the option is there.
As part of this partnership, Club Eurostar is offering double points on future trips to Le Club AccorHotels members.
Here are the rules:
You need to register here before 21st October
You need to book your Eurostar tickets between 7th October and 7th November
Your need to travel between 1st November and 31st December
There is no limit to the number of trips on which you can earn double Club Eurostar points. For clarity, there is no requirement to convert the points you receive into Accor points.
You must be a Le Club AccorHotels member to take part – although you are not asked for your number – so you should sign up via the Accor website here if not already a member.
(PS. There is a parallel version of this promotion, whereby members of Club Eurostar can earn triple points on upcoming Accor stays. As it is only valid when you credit hotel stays to Club Eurostar it is very niche, but you can find out more on the Accor website here.)
How to earn Club Eurostar points from UK credit cards (November 2020)
Club Eurostar does not have a UK credit card. However, you can earn Club Eurostar points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 1,333 Club Eurostar points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 2,000 Club Eurostar points. Card benefits include Eurostar lounge access.
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 333 Club Eurostar points. This card is FREE for life.
Membership Rewards points convert at 15:1 into Club Eurostar points which is an attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, so you will get the equivalent of 1 Club Eurostar point for every £15 you spend.
American Express Platinum comes with a great Eurostar benefit – lounge access! You can enter any Eurostar lounge, irrespective of your ticket type, simply by showing The Platinum Card at the desk. No guests are allowed but you can get entry for your partner by issuing them with a free supplementary Amex Platinum card on your account.
