Qantas & Accor have launched an offer that allows Frequent Flier program members with Silver or higher status to get Accor Live Limitless (ALL) Gold status through the end of 2023.
Accor and Qantas announced a partnership in 2020 (read more here) that was rolled out in 2021 (read more here). It is similar to the one Accor has with Flying Blue (read more here) that allows earning both airline miles and ALL points for flights and stays.
You can access Qantas’ page for ALL match here.
Note that eligible members must register for this offer by August 12 after linking their Qantas and Accor accounts.
The status on the ALL accounts is upgraded within four weeks after the end of this offer, and it should be valid through 2023.
You must remember that ALL Gold benefits are somewhat limited, and your main advantages are earning more points for stays and welcome drinks. Room upgrades and early and late checkouts are all based on availability.
Accor ALL Gold status allows members to earn points for Qantas flights.
You can also buy Accor ALL Gold status by subscribing to an ibis Business card that costs less than 100 euros per year.
Accor & Qantas Partnership Launch:
The Accor Gold benefits are weak but better than having none at all.
You may get an early and late checkout that can be worthwhile and otherwise expensive. Just remind that these are based on availability and courtesy of the hotel.
