Get Free Platinum Status with Accor Hotels in 3 Minutes

Posted By Trav

Accor hotels, which has over 4,000 hotels in 90 countries, is offering free platinum status to A|Club, their loyalty program.  This is supposed to be targeted to Citi Premier Miles World Mastercard holders in the UAE but because of a glitch in the system, it is allowing anyone to sign up and receive it.   I just did this and can confirm that it works.  Like with all these types of deals, hurry and sign up if you are interested, since you never know when they will close the loophole.

While it isn’t the sexiest elite status out there, it does offer room upgrades, 4 p.m. late checkout, and guaranteed availability.  It’s free and takes less than 5 minutes, so why not.  Even if you never plan on staying at an Accor property, you never know when it is going to come in handy.

Here is the link to sign up, and the original posting by Gary at View From the Wing, who was the first to scoop this deal!  Thanks Gary!
