2.   Free Accor Platinum Status.  View from the Wing writes that you can, once again, get free Platinum status from Accor hotels.

The comments in Gary’s post suggest that you can sign-up for the Platinum status from Accor hotels and then ask other hotel chains such as Best Western, Priority Club (email priorityclub@ihg.com), and Club Carlson (email goldpointsplus@carlson.com) to match that status.

I stayed at a Best Western last year in the UK, and my elite status (matched from Hyatt) got me a very comfortable room in the main hotel, compared to my colleagues who, hmmm, were dispatched to a tiny room in far away annex.

I kept mum about my elite status and chalked up the better room to luck because they were really upset with their room.  Like Rapid Travel Chai, I don’t evangelize at work, but am happy to help when asked.

D’unt work…

“The given promotion code is not usable anymore”

Ouch – Looks like the Accor offer is a goner. I received the message “The given promotion code is not usable anymore”. I’m curious if anyone else has gotten the same message.

Just so you know these codes were not “earned,” they are giving them away. Go into one of their restaurants and they have a large stack of codes sitting by the register. I grabbed a bunch the other day but haven’t had the chance to use them yet. I could see if I still have them and post them here.

Oops — typo’ed there. To be clear, my Accor Platinum status was matched by Best Western to their Best Western “Diamond Elite” status (their highest status)!

– John…

Just to note it, Best Western just matched my brand new Accor status no problem! I simply forwarded the Accor Welcome Email (which mentions the Platinum status in two different places) along with a request to match it to StatusMatch@bestwestern.com and they matched it! (I didn’t even get an email back from them yet — I forwarded the message yesterday and just happened to notice (because of my AwardWallet account) that I had Platinum status at Best Western today! Sweet!
