Accor's ALL rewards program will let members keep their 2019 status through to December 31, 2021, while also bundling up a range of additional sweeteners for guests grounded by the coronavirus.
The gratis status boost for Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond and invitation-only Black ALL card-holders was initially offered only to members residing within Greater China, with everyone else gifted a 50% credit of the elite nights and points needed to maintain their tier.
However, with the global sweep of COVID-19 now expected to scythe through demand for air travel and hotels until at least early next year, Accor is locking in everyone's ALL status until the last minute before we roar into 2022.
In theory, that should be ample time to requalify for your shiny status for 2022 and beyond.
But to get that off to a flying start, Accor will also roll over status nights and points clocked up between July 1 and December 31 2020 "to jump start your elite qualification on January 1, 2021, allowing you to earn elite status faster in the 2022 program year."
All Suite Night Upgrade benefits of Platinum and Diamond members which haven't been used by December 31, 2020 will also be extended for 12 months.
Finally, the expiration of ALL Rewards points will be paused until December 15, 2020.
