Ibis Business card and Accorplus

I have an Ibis Business card, for which I got gold status.
I am planning to get Accorplus, but then I have only silver status.
How can I benefit the perks of my Gold status when I book through Accorplus?
Do I just need to check in with the Ibis business card?
Anyone have experience in how this is handled?

you cant book with a+ member rate then check in using ibis gold, but you may try your luck, hope some of the hotels operator not familiar with the t&c,

I had similar problem recently. I had ibis business and applied for A+ (though I was/am a plat from my stays). I ended up having 2 separated accounts (Le Club Plat and A+ Silver). I wanted to book with A+ account to gain more discount, but I was concerned about my plat perk as well, so raised the concern to my A+ rep and he suggested booking stays with A+ Silver, then flash the plat card at check in. Maybe that could be done since it was suggested by A+ rep...

However, I have not tried that myself. I do not like breaking rules (that one person could not have ibis biz and A+ at the same time, even though this does not make any sense, but respect it nonetheless) so I canceled my ibis biz (still had half a year before expire) and merged my lcah plat account with A+ so now being A+ plat.

Maybe you could soft try it (a night stay or something) and see how it goes

Thank you all for the input. I guess I stay first at ibis business. And see next year if I change to a+

Hi,

How did you cancel your ibis business subscription, Iíve tried calling the Le club hotline a few times but havenít had any luck.

Cheers

I remember to submit a form on Accor website, sorry I don't remember which one, but I had a reply from AccorHotels Customer Care . Maybe email [email protected] might work as well?
