Get Free Instant Top Tier Elite Status With Sofitel, Novotel, and More!

In case you missed one of the past opportunities for Le club Accorhotels instant top tier Platinum status for new account signup, free instant top tier Platinum elite status from Leclub Accor Hotels is back.

How to Sign Up

This offer won’t last long, usually just a few hours once they start getting lots of signups but sometimes a little longer.

You must open a new account, it cannot be applied to existing accounts. And when you do so you must use an email address that’s not currently on file with them.

Even if you don’t frequently stay at Sofitel, Novotel, Pullman, Mercure, and other related properties frequently, you never know when you might find yourself in one and having top tier status can’t hurt.

What Platinum Status Gets You

Platinum status usually requires 60 nights or 25,000 points earned.

This status is far from the most rewarding, set your expectations accordingly. Earlier this year at the Sofitel London Heathrow, Platinum status meant an upgrade to a king bed.

Your experiences should be better than that since the program has just improved its elite benefits and in addition to bonus points-earning, Platinums now get free internet, early checkin and late checkout subject to availability, and lounge access when the eligible hotel has that amenity.

Use This Status to Match to Another Program

Many hotel programs now offer challenges rather than matches, but some like Club Carlson are willing to match Accor status generally.

Get a Rebate for Your Accor Hotels Booking, Too.

In addition to frequent sales offering discounts of 30% or more on the room rate, TopCashBack sometimes offers 8% or larger rebates on Accor hotels bookings. Start out at TopCashBack, your mileage may vary as to whether the offers will be stackable (whether your cash back will report). But it makes sense to try, as there’s no reason to leave money on the table.

  1. I just clicked the link to sign up, but it didn’t mention anything about Platinum status. My Accor home page now says my status is “classic”. Is the deal dead, or do they add the platinum status later?

  2. Thanks! Worked for me last time – now I am waiting for another sale… 30% for non-status / 40% for Platinums were pretty nice last time (for stays in Sept).

    Platinum status gave me exactly nil at Mercure in Germany (apart from bonus points)
