Accor Plus unleashes fast-track to ALL Gold, Platinum

Accor Plus members can upgrade their standard ALL Silver card to Gold after staying just 10 nights, or Platinum after 18.

Accor Plus unleashes fast-track to ALL Gold, Platinum

Members of the paid Accor Plus program are in for a treat, with a new fast-track deal catapulting cardholders straight to Gold or even Platinum status for the year ahead, in the program’s attached Accor Live Limitless (ALL) scheme.

By spending a certain number of nights at Accor hotels between February 15 and August 31 2021, Accor Plus members can climb the ALL status ladder as below.

Existing membership

Reach ALL Gold

Reach ALL Platinum

Accor Plus with ALL Silver

Stay 10 nights

Stay 18 nights

Accor Plus with ALL Gold

N/A

Stay 18 nights

As every Accor Plus member already holds ALL Silver status at a minimum – being one of the key benefits of maintaining paid membership in the Accor Plus scheme – this offer can be used by every Accor Plus member who hasn’t already reached ALL Platinum status.

This includes Accor Plus cardholders with complimentary memberships provided by American Express, such as included with the AMEX Platinum Charge Card.

However, the offer isn't open to 'regular' ALL Silver or ALL Gold members: if you don't also have an Accor Plus card, this deal isn't for you.

How to activate your fast-track offer

Members can enrol in this fast-track deal via the Accor website.

Just login to your Accor Plus/ALL account, and click the “subscribe now” button at the bottom of the fast-track page.

Registration remains open until April 15 2021.

If you’re not already an Accor Plus member, this gives ample opportunity to join the program and activate the fast-track deal on your account, although a standard Accor Plus ‘Explorer’ membership sets you back $399 per year in Australia.

In any case, you’ll need to stay either 10 nights (for Gold) or 18 nights (for Platinum) between February 15 and August 31, so there’s no harm in registering promptly to make the most of any upcoming stays: and of course, so you don’t forget.

There’s currently no fast-track available to ALL Diamond, which sits one level above ALL Platinum in the Accor ranks, or to ALL Black, the program’s invitation-only tier.

Among the standard suite of year-round Accor Plus benefits, the program’s main drawcards are a complimentary stay once per year – including at Accor’s luxury hotels – as well as discounts of up to 50% on both hotel reservations and on-site dining across Asia Pacific.

If Accor ALL Gold had free breakfast, that would be nice, however I don't really see much benefit improvements between Silver and Gold (and 18 nights to reach Platinum during that time period would be a stretch).

At least Hilton Gold get free brekkie at Hilton/Waldorf Astoria, fantastic upgrades at Hiltons and Waldorf Astoria if you contact them prior to stay 

Accor seem a bit stingy

You don't need to stay all 18 nights during the time period - you just need to do the stays for the fast track part of the offer. 

The double nights offer runs for the whole year

Registration page says invalid address after you try and register

And nights will only count if booked directly with Accor - third party bookings eg through Amex Travel  do not count for points/status and so wont count for this "fast-track"

that is the standard drill, 3rd party stay rarely counts.

Doesn’t work from the URL in the story - does work from the personal email sent if you are silver or gold

Hi Chris, 

I've just run the numbers on this campaign, and have read through the T&Cs and as I'm an existing Accor Plus Gold member the wording is a little ambiguous. It states: 

- A Silver Member signing up to the Offer will be credited 10 Status Nights in addition to 2X (double) Status Nights earned for every night of the stay.

- A Gold Member signing up to the Offer will be credited 15 Status Nights in addition to 2X (double) Status Nights earned for every night of the stay.

and

"The Status Nights credit offered as part of the offer does not apply to the status level of the member prior to signing up for the offer: for example, a member with Gold status when registering for the offer will receive the Status Nights credit offered as part of the Fast Track offer for Gold Status. The Member will not receive a Status Nights credit for Silver Status. "

Based on those numbers wouldn't that leave us at 18 nights * 2 + 15 for being Gold = 51, not quite the required 60 for platinum? I've got some carry-overs from last year but certainly starting from Silver would get you there with the extra 10 night bonus you'd pick up, but not starting from Gold?

Never understood why you would pay for a loyalty. Your stays with the brand should be enough.

I wouldn't  pay either   - but it comes "free" with the Amex charge card, but I certainly wouldn't stay these extra nights to gain almost useless "benefits"

It is like I would never wear a logo'd tshirt or use an obviously logo'd bag/backpack/man bag  because I would expect the designer should be paying me to advertise their product, not tme paying to advertise their logo

Hey Ricko,

I am in the same boat as you with the math. I don't get it from a Gold standpoint. From Silver it seems clear.

And as you noted from Gold:

You need 23 nights to get to to Platinum if a gold member: 15 offer nights + 23 X 2 = 61

One chap on a forum suggested this:

1sr stay gets 10 bonus nights and 2 nights = 12 nights. Stay for 9 more nights which are doubled so 18 + the 12 = 30. Next stay get 15 nights so 30+15 + 2 =47 then you need 13 more which he can achieve by staying 7 more nights . Thus total 18 nights.

But according to the T's and C's it would suggest you don't get the Silver 10 offer nights then the Gold 15 nights offer .. just the gold offer nights if starting at Gold.

Confusing.

I have held Accor gold for a few years but find it's benefits almost non existent. Very rare I get an upgrade , and always have to practically beg for it , even knowing there is plenty of rooms available grades above by checking the app
