It never hurts to have a Gold status with Accor just in case you happen to find a great price at one of their hotels or to be in a place where you don’t have your favorite chain represented. Accor has pretty good coverage in South America, Europe, and in part of Asia.
Last year they run a promotion for instant Platinum status. Right now they have a promotion that gives you an instant Gold status with Accor’s A Club. All you need to do is to plug in the promotional code ACLUBFROHMYGOLD2011 when you sign up.

– 75% A|Club points bonus for every stay
Exclusive benefits at Sofitel*, Pullman and MGallery hotels.
– Welcome drink and gift
– A room ALWAYS AVAILABLE if you reserve at least 5 days before your arrival.
– Room upgrade**
– Late check-out up to 4:00 pm**
