Accor Live Limitless has launched a special ‘triple points’ promotion for members of JAL Mileage Bank, the loyalty programme for Japan Airlines.

Take a look hereThe offer is valid for stays until 31st January 2023 as long as you book by 30th December 2022.

Accor brands include ibis, Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure, MGallery, Raffles, Fairmont, Swissotel, Pullman etc.

Triple Accor Live Limitless points for JAL Mileage Bank members

As usual with Accor offers, it is a bit of a faff:

  • you need to register in advance of booking via this page of the Accor site (stays booked before registration do not count)
  • you must book your stay by 30th December 2022
  • you must complete your stay by 31st January 2023

On the positive side:

  • there is no minimum stay
  • there is no limit to the number of times that you can earn the bonus

The offer is valid at all Accor Live Limitless hotels globally except for those in Russia and Ukraine. The landing page talks about ‘participating’ hotels but this simply means that some Accor brands do not take part in Accor Live Limitless. ibis Budget hotels do not always earn points, for example.

You will see from the landing page that you are meant to be a member of JAL Mileage Bank to take advantage of this deal. I very much doubt that this will be checked but if you want to be 100% watertight you can sign up for free via the Japan Airlines website here.

What are triple Accor points worth?

Our article on what we think Accor Live Limitless points are worth is here.

1 point is worth 2 Eurocents off your next booking, although you need to redeem in chunks of 2,000 points.

The standard earn rate at most brands is 2.5 points per €1. Triple base points means 7.5 points per €1. This means 15 Eurocents of free stays for every €1 you spend, pre-tax, which is a decent return. Anyone with elite status will earn even more.

You can also transfer your Accor points to Avios although you lose value compared to using them for a discount on a future stay. The best transfer rate is to Iberia Plus (1:1) rather than British Airways Executive Club (2:1), using ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them from Iberia to BA.

You can find out more, and register for triple points, here.

If you want to learn more about Accor Live Limitless, our full review of the scheme is here. If you are not already a member, you will receive an extra 500 Accor Live Limitless points (worth €10) if your first stay is part of this promotion.

    I get the bonus at any number of points, but I need to buy 26 000 points to get the cheapest price (ie 26 000 + 26 000) is fewer USD than 25 000 +25 000).

    Quite possibly worth it with USD bought at £1=~$1.30.

    ‘Booked some kimpton nights in Samui for mid January. Worked out c.£158 per night with points, instead of £250 per night cash, and hopefully get an upgrade as I’ve extended diamond elite via ambassador. Thanks for the heads-up, Rob.

    I wonder if a lot of infrequent flyers have started collecting Avios points when flying with BA and at the end a family of four may have nothing in terms of travel but enough to get a couple of shops at Sainsbury’s so something that was never collected before has suddenly become attractive and BA are paying for it in a way they never did.

    I believe the deal was initially for ten years, let’s see if it lasts.

    On the topic of nectar points – check your Nectar app as many account specific money off offers have been posted.

    I have a £6 off £40 spend.

    I’m not getting the IHG link to work. It simply logs me out of the UK IHG site and gives me a log in screen for the US site?
