I have had the Platinum status by request available for the past few months and it still is. This link that I posted about a month ago back in December is still alive (to my surprise). These public links usually tend to die within a day or two. Even if you have no use for Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status, you can always use it to status match to i.e. Club Carlson or Priority Club Platinum status.
You can sign up for the instant Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status using this link. Please note that you need to sign up using an email address that has not been previously associated with Le Club Accorhotels or A Club.
