Le Club AccorHotels launched its Places back in 2013 (read more here) that allows members to collect badges and extra points by “checking in” to the hotel using the app that is connected to Facebook.
You can, however, use the Places App in an incognito window and can do several months check-ins at once. I believe that the stay must have taken place in the past four months.
You can access Accor’s page for the Place App here.
You can open the following web page (access here) and run the app inside the browser without having to download it to your phone.
The app requires you to authenticate via Facebook and then link your Le Club AccorHotels account with it. The app, over the web, doesn’t appear to be posting anything to my wall.
Inputted five stays that had taken place since early July and got some bonus points posted to my account:
I never got the Places to work within the Facebook app on my phone but seems to be working just fine in a web browser. The app is clunky and not sure if it has been updated for a while.
Interesting to see whether this will last the change to ALL – Accor Live Limitless that will soon take place. I’ll take all the bonus points that they throw my way. Just need to remember to log in the stays every four months or so.
