You need to take advantage of a promotional link to get automatic transfers with no minimum. This link worked for me when I set up my IB account to benefit from the better transfer rate about 6 months ago, it also worked to activate the OH's account which I set up when this promotion appeared a few weeks ago:

1. Cancel your automatic transfer with Le Club (if you already have one). Ignore the note under the email address box. If you have an active transfer, it will ask you to disable it before resubmitting the form.

2. Go to the page below, fill in form and submit:

http://s-leclub.accorhotels.com/burn...ecutive%20Club

I am aware it says Executive Club! However, it seems to just activate an instant transfer to your chosen airline scheme. This link has worked for me with IB.

3. Return to your Le Club account settings and reactivate your automatic transfer/ set one up.

The points should sweep the next morning after receipt (or activation if you have a pre-existing balance), usually around 8.30am UK time, and you will get an email to confirm. Each batch has successfully credited IB 2-3 working days later.

From the T&Cs:

'2. Automatic conversion into airline miles.....

Automatic transfer, with no minimum amount, is activated as soon as the member has earned at least 2 Le Club Accorhotels points for a stay at one of the Accor hotels participating in the program.'


I know the points from this promo aren't for a stay, but it's worked fine for me, 3750 Avios each received, the last 2.5k are winging their merry way their way as we speak....
