1000 Bonus Accor Points (Worth ~ £18) For A UK stay (But With A Snag)

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

We haven’t seen a major bonus promotion from Accor in a while. The last one I am aware of offered a generous 6,000 bonus points for three two-night stays, which I covered here.

The current offer is not as generous. If you are an Le Club Accor Gold or Platinum member, you will earn 1,000 bonus points for a stay at the following hotels in the UK:

  • The Savoy
  • Fairmont St Andrews
  • Sofitel London Heathrow
  • Sofitel London Gatwick
  • Pullman Liverpool
  • MGallery Woughton House
  • MGallery Queens Hotel Cheltenham
  • MGallery Castle Hotel Windsor
  • MGallery Francis Hotel Bath.

As usual with Accor, strict booking and staying windows apply:

  • Book between 17/12/18 and 27/01/19
  • Stay between 02/01/19 and 31/03/19

You will earn the bonus only once. A one-night stay qualifies for the bonus, and this is in addition to the points you would normally earn. The offer stacks with cashback. Both topcashback and quidco currently offer 10%, although this regularly rises to 15%.

Bottom Line

Bagging a bonus is always nice, especially if you were planning on staying at that hotel anyway. But, and it’s a big but, 1,000 bonus points (worth roughly £18) is not hugely generous especially because these are all expensive hotels. You can earn the bonus only once and you must be a Le Club Accor Gold and Platinum member to be eligible.

Accor is making these promotions far too restrictive in my opinion. We have seen strict booking and staying windows in the past, so this is nothing new. But why offer a meagre 1,000 bonus points only to Gold and Platinum members and only at these selected properties? This won’t persuade me to shift business to these rather expensive hotels…
