Accor Live Limitless (ALL) members can now buy gift cards in EUR that are valid at most German hotels (consult the list on Accor’s website).
There is a bonus of 500 points for purchasing a Є100 card and 1,500 points if you splurge for a Є250 one through December 31, 2020.
You can access this offer on Accor’s website here.
Note that it is unclear if you can earn the purchase bonus multiple times. There is a separate offer (read more here) for GBP gift cards valid for use in the UK.
You can use these gift cards for all expenses at participating hotels that are payable when checking out. The terms also state that the hotel can refund any possible prepayment you have made and charge it to the gift card instead.
Accor has been rather slow at launching a product such as gift cards that are good at capturing revenue if you offer premiums like bonus amount (Marriott does this) or extra points.
I would not buy them unless you get a more significant bonus (either points or amount), and I would rather see gift cards from Accor that could be used at hotels worldwide and not just in the UK or Germany.
Here are the terms and conditions of the bonus points:
