Le Club Accorhotels to Iberia Avios Exchange Rate Devalued 60% Starting March 1

9 Comments

One of the bright spots of Le Club Accorhotels program has been the ability to convert or auto transfer Le Club points to Iberia Avios at the rate of 2 points to 5 Avios. I wrote about a piece about this last month.

Starting on March 1, 2013, the exchange rate will change from 2.5 to 1 Avios per Le Club Accorhotels point. This is a devaluation of 60% for those that convert Le Club points to Iberia Avios. Thanks for LoyaltyLobby reader for spotting this banner on Le Club Spanish website.

Merging Duplicate Le Club Accorhotel Accounts

6 Comments

All the recent Platinum Le Club Accorhotels sign up promotions have required you to open a new account as this promotion doesn’t apply to old ones. Until now, my advise has always been to just contact the customer service and request then to merge the accounts at some later date.

le-club-accorhotels-email

LoyaltyLobby reader sent me an email that they had received from Le Club Accorhotel’s customer service regarding a request to combine two accounts. First of all, there is absolutely no fraud for signing up for Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status. Accor has made these links public, although they are targeted to certain groups i.e. Citibank cardholders. To keep the sign up process easy, there are no checks whether you actually have such a product.

16 Comments

Le Club Accorhotels is giving 200 Le Club Accorhotels for participating to this contest that has some other prices as well. This emailed offer is valid from January 28 to March 31, 2013. You can access this contest here.

accor-200-email

Note that the terms and conditions say  that the contest is valid for residents of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, but the form doesn’t even require you to fill out the address fields. I think that it is likely that the 200 points will post to all. But, if you happen to win any of the higher prices and your address is not in any of the four countries listed, your participation is likely deemed null and void.

Iberia is one of the better airline partners of the Le Club Accorhotels. The ability to choose Iberia Avios as your partner was recently put on hold, but is back up again.

With most of the other airline programs (there are exceptions), you will earn ONE airline mile per TWO Le Club Accorhotels points. With Iberia this exchange rate is different, however. Every TWO Le Club Accorhotels points converts to FIVE Iberia Avios.

I have had the Platinum status by request available for the past few months and it still is. This link that I posted about a month ago back in December is still alive (to my surprise). These public links usually tend to die within a day or two. Even if you have no use for Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status, you can always use it to status match to i.e. Club Carlson or Priority Club Platinum status.

I have had the Platinum status by request available for the past few months and it still is. Now, someone has (again) posted a link on a public website for instant Platinum status. These public links tend to die within a day or two.

You can sign up for the instant Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status using this link. Please note that you need to sign up using an email address that has not been previously associated with Le Club Accorhotels or A Club.

I signed up for the Platinum status last year and have had few Accor stays. The Mercure hotel in Nadi was not great, but the Novotel hotel in Lami Bay was actually nice. During my stay at the Hotel Muse, MGallery collection hotel, in Bangkok I even received a Platinum gift that was a shirt. The Pullman hotel in Bali is good one too.

Conclusion

Once this public link is dead, you can always do the request for the non-public link that I have outlined here.
