Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

GOOD ACCOR DEAL: €20 of points or 1,000 Avios bonus on your next five hotel stays

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

Accor Live Limitless has launched an aggressive promotion on your next five stays at participating Fairmont, Raffles, Swissotel, Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery, Novotel, Novotel Suites, Mercure, Adagio, Ibis, Ibis Styles, Adagio Access, Mama Shelter, Mantis, Mövenpick or SLS hotels.

You will receive 1,000 bonus points if your stay includes a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, or 500 points if your stay only covers Monday to Thursday nights.

1000 bonus Accor Live Limitless points

There is NO minimum stay.  A cheap ibis night over a weekend will trigger 1,000 bonus points PLUS your base points.

Here is a crazy example. This coming Saturday, the ibis Styles London Kensington is £31 for a single room or £35 for a double.  This INCLUDES breakfast.  Via this offer, you will get 1,000 Avios or €20 of Accor credit – plus your base points – back.

What stays are eligible?

As usual with Accor promotions, they are a little complicated.

Firstly, you MUST register before you book via this link.  Existing bookings do not count.

Secondly, you must book by 16th November, even though you can stay until 13th December.

Thirdly, your stay must be in Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia , Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Réunion, Saint Martin or French Guyana.

You can earn the bonus up to FIVE times.

There is NO minimum stay required.

Stays which are booked on points or with a mix of cash and points are not eligible.  Your stay must be purely for cash and booked direct.

Accor Live Limitless offering 1000 bonus points on your next stay

What is the bonus worth?

Accor points are worth 2 Eurocents towards a future stay.  The bonus is worth €20 for a weekend stay and €10 for a weekday stay. 

You can also transfer your points at 1:1 into Iberia Plus Avios.   From there you can use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them to British Airways Executive Club.  This means that you would earn 1,000 Avios (plus your base points) for a weekend stay and 500 bonus Avios for a weekday stay.

Do NOT transfer your points directly into British Airways Executive Club as the rate is a weaker 2:1.

Conclusion

For anyone doing a cheap one night hotel stay, especially at a weekend, this is a very generous offer.  You could get a very high percentage of your spending returned as points or Avios.

If you booking an expensive multi-night stay then there isn’t much here to persuade you to move it to Accor.  For everyone else, this offer is well worth a look.

    I have experienced many occasion, existing booking counts even when accor says otherwise.

  • ALL a waste of time says:

    “Due to a technical problem, you will not be able to benefit from the bonus.”

    Thanks, Accor. Good work.

    • Ed says:

      Same here despite being emailed by ALL to specifically invite me to make use of this offer

      • Dubious says:

        I used to have this problem – after enquring with the customer service (by email) they came back after some time indicating my account had had some kind of flag put against it – I got the impression from registering for too many promotions (I obtained legitimately from another blog but I notice other people on that blog had commented their accounts had also got blocked from using the promotions listed there).

        After sending some confirmation details to Accor they unlocked it and now the promotions seem to work once again – including this one.

        Do not however the geographical restriction makes it unlikily I can use it.

        • MR says:

          Same here – I got in touch yesterday. They told me there was a security issue on my account and I’d need to change my password, provide proof of ID, etc.

          I think I’ve only registered for one or two promos with Accor before, so I assume this is more a potential hacking issue for me.

    • Tony says:

      Try re loading the page – its a known problem – but typical of the great IT dept that Accor have ( not got ).

      Then take a screenshot of the registration to send to them when you don’t get the points

      Remember to pay cash / card and NOT points in anyway on an Accor promotion as it will void the deal.

  • MarkZ says:

    @Jil – very interested to read your comment, especially as I made a booking for a mid-week stay yesterday afternoon, three hours before Accor’s own email promoting the offer dropped into my inbox! Rather than go through the faff of cancelling and rebooking, I will leave it as it is and see what happens.

  • Tom says:

    OT: Hilton status match

    I’ve recently applied for the status match and I have 60 days left to complete the challenge.

    Is it really the case that the current promotion means that it’s easier to complete the challenge as one night counts as two nights? Should be able to get a Gold, but thinking about changing my future stays to Hilton to get a diamond.

    • Rob says:

      As I understand it, yes, the ‘double elite nights’ counts here so you only need half the nights you are meant to need.

    • Pangolin says:

      Double elite nights will count, so it’s worth going for Diamond.

  • Donna says:

    How can one build points in this scheme without staying?

    • Lady London says:

      shopping, and if you book food and drink in an Accor hotel to your membership.l

      • EwanG says:

        Opinion surveys is another way to gain points, but if you are trying to build up anything meaningful don’t recommend the ClubOpinions surveys (which only reward in ALL points) as a) you only get 25 ALL points per survey and b) you will probably find that you are screened out for more surveys than you complete, at no benefit to you. E-rewards is better in that regard as they give you some points for being screened out (and I have ALL as a redemption partner on my account)

      • Lady London says:

        PS Rob also did a recent article about AF/KL and Accor double-crediting across each other so that would be another way.

    The registration link brings me to a page saying “This address is not valid”.
