Le Club AccorHotels has Places app that allows members to check into the property during the stay virtually using their smartphone and earn badges and bonus points in the process.
The app is somewhat buggy at times and Le Club AccorHotels is not the fastest to update the properties where one can check in during their stays. This is, however, excellent way to earn bonus points that will all count towards the status until the end of this year.
You can access Le Club AccorHotels web page for the Places app here.
Here are some new badges that you can collect:
Airport – 500 points
Poland – 200 points
SO/Sofitel – 500 points
Mama Shelter – 500 points
The Sebel – 500 points
My app indicated that there would be 36 different badges available to collect. The problem is that I have never quite get this app to work with my Le Club AccorHotels account and thus unable to check in using the app to collect these badges (read bonus points!).
It is quite surprising how little Le Club AccorHotels has promoted this app lately. I am sure that many members are not even aware of it.
Thanks for a reader that forwarded me the info about these new badges that just became available.
