Accor Plus offering 2,500 bonus points (€50) for new Explorer members

Expired

From now till 17 September, join Accor Plus Explorer and enjoy 2,500 bonus ALL points, 20 status nights, up to 50% off dining and more.

If you’ve been eyeing an Accor Plus membership, there’s a new promotion offering 2,500 bonus Accor Live Limitless (ALL) points to anyone who signs up for an Accor Plus Explorer membership. 

These points are worth €50 (~S$70), which represents an effective discount of ~16% off the usual annual price of S$418.

Accor Plus members can look forward to benefits including up to 50% savings on dining, 15% off drinks, up to two complimentary hotel nights, and 20 status nights each year of membership.

From 6-17 September 2023, anyone who purchases an Accor Plus Explorer membership will receive 2,500 bonus ALL points, on top of all the usual benefits. 

ALL points can be used to offset hotel bills at a fixed rate of 2,000 points = €40, so 2,500 points are worth €50, or ~S$70 at the time of writing. That’s roughly a 16% discount, which would beat previous Accor Plus flash sales where 5-10% discounts are usually offered. 

The 2,500 bonus ALL points will be credited within 30 days of 17 September 2023. ALL points do not expire so long as you earn at least one point within a 12-month period.

Accor Plus now offers 20 status nights per year

Back in August 2023, Accor Plus introduced a new perk called Status Accelerator, which grants 20 status nights each year to members when they commence or renew their membership.

As a reminder, here’s how many status nights are required to qualify for ALL elite status:

StatusStatus NightsStatus Points
Silver102,000
(€800 spend)
Gold307,000
(€2,800 spend)
Platinum6014,000
(€5,600 spend)
DiamondN/A26,000
(€10,400 spend)

This means that all Accor Plus members will receive, at a minimum, ALL Silver status (which requires 10 status nights).

Moreover, anyone who was an Accor Plus member as of 31 July 2023 would have already received a one-time bonus of 20 status nights, so if their Accor Plus renewal takes place by 31 December 2023 then they’d have 40 status nights for 2023, bumping them to ALL Gold. 

❓ Why “by 31 December 2023?”
Status nights reset on 1 January each year, so if your Accor Plus renewal comes after 1 January 2024, then the 20 status nights granted on 31 July 2023 will have already lapsed.

Here’s a quick recap of the benefits available at each tier of ALL.

For avoidance of doubt, Status Accelerator applies regardless of whether you bought an Accor Plus membership, or received it as a benefit via a credit card.

Summary: Accor Plus benefits

Accor Plus is a dining and lifestyle membership that offers members discounts on hotel stays and restaurants across Asia Pacific. 

Standard Accor Plus benefits include:

  • 10% off best available public rate
  • Up to 50% off member exclusive room rates with with Red Hot Room offers
  • Up to 50% off dining across 1,400 restaurants in Asia Pacific
    • 25% off dining: 1 member only
    • 50% off dining: 1 member and 1 guest
    • 33% off dining: 1 member and 2 guests
    • 25% off dining: 1 member and 3 guests
  • 15% off drinks bill in Asia
  • Member exclusive More Escapes stay packages
  • Early access to global Accor hotel sales
  • Members’ exclusive experiences
  • 20 status nights each year

Some examples of participating Accor Plus restaurants in Singapore include Prego, Mikuni and Asian Market Café at the Fairmont, SKAI, The Stamford Brasserie, CLOVE, at Swissotel and The Cliff and Kwee Zeen at the Sofitel Sentosa Resort.

Don’t forget that your dining benefits apply overseas too- even on breakfast. You’ll often find that it makes more sense to book a non-breakfast rate and then purchase breakfast at 50% off at the hotel itself. 

Stay Plus certificates are offered to Explorer (1 certificate) and Explorer Plus (2 certificates) members Each Stay Plus certificate can be used for a one-night stay at participating hotels across Asia Pacific. Obviously, you’ll want to save this for a high-end chain like Sofitel or Mondrian, and steer clear of the cheaper ones. 

Do note that Stay Plus nights are subject to blackout dates, and if you have more than one, you can’t redeem them for back-to-back nights at the same property. 

Which credit cards offer Accor Plus membership?

As an alternative to buying an Accor Plus membership outright, two credit cards in Singapore offer a complimentary Accor Plus Explorer membership.

CardMin. IncomeAnnual Fee
AMEX HighFlyer CardS$30,000S$301.80
DBS Vantage CardS$120,000S$594

While it’s not easy to waive the annual fee for either card, it’s not impossible either:

  • AMEX HighFlyer Card annual fee can be waived subject to an internal review that looks at your spending and tenure with American Express
  • DBS Vantage Card annual fee can be waived with a minimum spend of S$60,000 in a membership year

If the annual fee is waived, you will still enjoy a renewal of the Accor Plus Explorer membership.

Conclusion

Join Accor Plus

Accor Plus is offering new members 2,500 bonus ALL points when they sign up for the Explorer tier. If you’re not in a position to get an AMEX HighFlyer Card (only for SME owners) or DBS Vantage Card (min. income: S$120,000), then this would be the next best solution.

Be sure to sign up by 17 September 2023 to enjoy this offer.
