Accor Live Limitless (ALL) members have historically been able to earn points when dining at hotel restaurants, even if they weren’t an in-house guest. However, the system was rather clunky. Members had to register a Visa card in the Accor app, and would only earn points when they paid with that particular credit card.
Accor has now introduced a much better solution. You simply provide your ALL number when paying the bill, and then proceed to pay however you wish. Rewards points will be credited within seven days.
What this means is that you can enjoy Chillax or other credit card discounts, while earning ALLL points on the nett amount payable. The lack of a minimum spend requirement also makes it easy to extend the life of your entire points balance.
What’s the earn rate?
Points will be accrued at a rate of 1 Euro= 1 point, and there is no minimum spend required to earn points (well, OK you need to spend at least 1 Euro (S$1.60)). For comparison, hotel stays earn 25-44 points per 10 Euros, depending on your membership tier.
ALL points can be redeemed against hotel stays at a rate of 2,000 points= 40 Euros, so this is equivalent to a 2% rebate on dining. More importantly, however, earning at least 1 point extends the life of your entire balance by a further 12 months.
If you racked up some ALL points under the excellent SCB X Card transfer offer last year, this is an easy way to recharge them.
Which restaurants are participating?
Accor has provided a list of hotels that are participating, so my assumption is that all the hotel-operated F&B outlets will be eligible to accrue points. This includes:
|Fairmont & |
Swissotel The Stamford
|Ibis Styles Singapore on MacPherson|
|Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen|
|Ibis Singapore Novena|
|Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy|
|Mercure Singapore Bugis|
|Mercure Singapore on Stevens|
|Novotel Singapore on Stevens|
|Sofitel Sentosa Resort & Spa|
|Sofitel Singapore City Centre|
|Sofitel SO Singapore|
|Swissotel Merchant Court|
Not all F&B concepts are open at the moment due to COVID, so be sure to give the hotel a ring before heading down.
The revised system gives you more flexibility to earn ALL points when dining, and all you need to remember is to provide your membership number to the staff when paying.
Remember: you can stack this with the discount offered by Accor Plus, saving up to 50% off food.
