Accor Plus is running a flash sale from now till 29 October 2023, which takes 10% off the price of all Accor Plus memberships.
Accor Plus members can look forward to benefits including up to 50% off dining, 15% off drinks, up to two complimentary hotel nights, and 20 status nights each year of membership.
Accor Plus offering 10% off memberships
|Join Accor Plus|
From 25-29 October 2023, all Accor Plus memberships are on sale at 10% off the usual price. Depending on which tier you’re looking at, prices range from S$277 to S$484 (versus S$308 to S$538 normally).
By way of comparison, last month we saw an Accor Plus sale which offered 2,500 bonus Accor Live Limitless (ALL) points to anyone who signed up for an Accor Plus Explorer membership. Those points are worth €50 (~S$70), an effective rebate of ~16% off the usual annual price of S$418.
The main difference is that this time round the discount is upfront (as opposed to a rebate that’s only realised when the points are spent), and applies to all three tiers of memberships.
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:
|Status||Status Nights||Status Points|
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

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.
|Card||Min. Income||Annual Fee|
|AMEX HighFlyer Card||S$30,000||S$301.80|
|DBS Vantage Card||S$120,000||S$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.

From now till 29 October 2023, Accor Plus is offering 10% off all memberships, which now start from S$277. I’d say the 2-night Explorer Plus membership has the greatest potential value, assuming you’re able to burn those nights at aspirational properties.
Don’t forget that you can get an Accor Plus membership with an AMEX HighFlyer Card (only for SME owners) or DBS Vantage Card (min. income: S$120,000) as well.
