Free Accor Platinum 2013

This offer came up in December 2012, but I hadn't seen it posted here and was working yesterday when I used it:

https://s-leclub.accorhotels.com/enr...UMIACLUBPLAT11

The 2012 thread was closed or I'd have posted there.

To give credit where due, I found it on pointhack (I have no affiliation with them though)

Thanks a lot! I just fell back to the basic status, so signed up again

I rarely stay at Accor but sometimes they do have nice hotels.

This doesn't seem to work for me. I just get "Invalid identification. Please try again or use another e-mail address." Is this only for new accounts rather than existing?

Yes it's for new accounts only. It's not an upgrade offer of existing accounts.

Just use a different email address. I did this once and then asked them to merge both accounts but since I don't have that many points in the older account anyway.... I won't bother.

failed

I just registered through this link and got an email stating classic level. Does this change to platinum later in your experience? The first email I tried was rejected, but I immediately entered another one.

It seems something went wrong, it should come straight as platinum...

I wonder if there is a country of residence filter on this? Where are your successful registration addresses? Mine is in Finland, but I could move abroad very quickly!

Maybe try a different email adress from a different provider (something like Gmail with ".com"). You can later change the email adress.

Thanks I did try that. Others seem to be reporting success from all over the world, so shouldn't be about residence. There were some glitches during registration, so I guess the code could have been lost. I have about a week of accor stays starting tomorrow, so I guess I will give it another try.

Edit I did finally succeed by faultlessly entering all the data without error messages. I also did change the country of residence, so that could have been it also.
