Tucked away on the Accor Experiences website is a very interesting offer for anyone sitting on a pile of Accor Live Limitless points and who is free next Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Accor is auctioning off a night at The Savoy, the chance to attend a private party in the hotel with live music and a private tour of the legendary Abbey Road recording studios the next day.

The bidding is only at 15,000 Accor Live Limitless points (usually worth €300 of free hotel stays) as of 10am on Wednesday and the auction closes at 10pm.

    OK so now this will go for crazy points!

    Do HFP get paid by the marketing agency for these auction post’s all the time (Accor/Hilton/Marriott)?

    I really do not see the point in posting the specific auctions.
    A informative article for each scheme would more educational/ beneficial for the community than driving bids sky high for a specific auction like this.

    • RussellH says:

      It had never occurred to me that HfP might get paid for an article like this, but I expect that Rob or Rhys will answer your question when they have time.

      As to why they post the info, the answer is surely so that we are aware of offers that might be of interest. While some people may be happy for all the hotel groups and airlines to deluge them with marketing junk, I and I assume plenty of others tick the “do not send marketing” box on every website visited and rely on HfP to mention the occasional offer that might be genuinely interesting.

      For me, Abbey Road is of zero interest, and if it were, I do not have the points anyway. But the article itself is of some interest, so I read it.

      • Rob says:

        No, we don’t get paid. We just like to flag interesting stuff to readers, so we get more of them. We can then charge more for the ads we flog to (today) Amex and Capital On Tap. That’s how it works 🙂

        • Bagoly says:

          One of quite a few Rob replies which would be well worth a professor of Business Studies including in a lecture – have any done so?

    • Panda Mick says:

      I don’t see the point in The Sun having an article on how Bob’s numbers on the lottery from last week came up in the results for this week, but he didn’t place a ticket, but it happens

      I quite like seeing these articles. Instead of blowing my points on an overnight in Slough, it makes me wonder if I should stockpile my points occasionally.

    • babyg says:

      100% agree with James..

      • Rob says:

        I think the fact that no reader has placed a bid in the 6 hours that this article has been up implies that we don’t have the life changing powers that you may think 🙂

        • babyg says:

          people will be hovering to sniper… your jedi powers are stronger than you realise :-)..

  • ianM says:

    There is a balance between getting a bargain, and not knowing about an auction at all. I’d be peed off if I’d been watching this for a while for it then to be publicised widely at the last minute, but hey-ho it’s just advertising.

    7.50am start to Abbey Road too early for me!!

    • Rob says:

      I only saw it on the Accor site yesterday. No idea how long it had been there but with only 2 bids ….

      • MKB says:

        I’m agreeing with ianM, not the post against which it was juxtaposed.

        Feel sorry for the two people who had discovered this auction off their own bat.

        It’s the same with sweet spots in programmes that get killed off by bloggers, when these things can be easily found by putting in the effort yourself.

        • James says:

          This was my main point 🙏

        • Economist-Nearby1 says:

          So you want to benefit from this blog but you don’t want anyone else to…

          • Bagoly says:

            You have nailed the point.
            That’s the inherent tension for sites (or good old newspapers) for tips of any kind.

  • RonnieB says:

    Next question is…how can you exchange AMEX points for Accor points LOL!!!

  • vol says:


    It only went for 20k in the end (bid was at 15k as Rob stated in the article)

    Interesting – will keep an eye out in future – thanks!
