This is unfortunately the case for almost all promotions. The use of points to pay for the stay prevents to benefit points promotions

"4. Stays that are paid for partially or fully with Rewards points or with one or more Le Club AccorHotels Rewards vouchers will not be eligible to benefit from this offer, nor will they count towards offers requiring multiple stays to earn points."

It's unfortunate, but it is there in the T&Cs. There's so many "gotchas" with these kind of promotions.

yeah, I didn’t read the t&c carefully as I was rushing book that stays last minute as I was traveling.

Anyway, I was told my third booking is not eligible as it booked just past midnight SG time, although the hotel is in Jakarta

Also if the point booking is not eligible for this promotion, why the option of that rate is avail? I booked by clicking the book now from promotion.

I thought Accor is very good in excluding certain rate

Cheers.
and again

This was not always the case , in the past you get the points from promotion if you pay with points.
And this make a lot of sense, because Accor assign fixed cash value to any point ( 2 c ).
And make not all rate available to book with points.
Making actual value of the points 30-50 % less then 1 c.
If you are forced to book more expensive rate if you use your points this decrease their value.
Take for example the last Black Friday sale where the rates you can book with points was 30-40% more expensive then the one available only with cash.
They have to allow points to be used to any rate or give the points from promotion if you pay with points.

I think they count the time of the hotel you book not where you are located.

Thatís why I donít see any benefit in using Accor points to book their hotels (unlike with other chains) and just convert them into IB Avios automatically.
