Earlier today I wrote about an extremely lucrative promotion being offered by Accor and Aeroplan, whereby you can earn 5,000 bonus Aeroplan miles per Accor stay through December 31, 2014.
The promotion almost seemed too good to be true, given that Accor has plenty of budget brand hotels which go for under $50 per night.
The terms of the promotion referenced “participating hotel,” so my concern was that the budget brands would be excluded.
Well, I reached out to Accor to clarify, and they’ve confirmed that all 2,700 hotels participating in the Accorhotels program are included in the offer.
And to support that even further, the Aeroplan promotion page says the following:
Earn 5,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you book and stay at any Novotel or one of 12 other Accor brands hotel worldwide by 12/31.
So I think it’s safe to assume that all properties are indeed participating.
While there aren’t many budget Accor properties in the US, there are tons in Asia, Europe, and South America. So if you live near one, this could be an amazing opportunity to rack up Aeroplan miles for well under one cent each.
Does anyone live near a budget Accor property and plan on taking full advantage of this promotion?
