Free 200 Le Club Accorhotels Points

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.

Update On FoundersCard Review

17 Comments

On January 25, I wrote a piece about Founderscard and whether the travel benefits would be worth the discounted yearly fee of $295. My findings were inconclusive. They might be worth the fee for you, but they weren’t definitely for me.

founderscard-email

But it seems that the FoundersCard is not very fond of letting people know what are the benefits they offer. IMHO, you need to know the pricing of the benefits before you can make an informed decision to sign up or not.
