Accor has revealed another Black Friday deal (on top of the triple points deal that launched earlier) in which it’s offering a 20% bonus on UK gift cards purchased in the next 5 days.
The offer is simple:
- Buy an ALL gift card by 28 November 2022
- A 20% bonus will be added to the value of the gift card that you purchase
Before you decide to jump in on this deal, however, there are a few key terms that you should know.
Firstly, these gift cards can only be used at participating Accor hotels in the UK (Sofitel London Heathrow, Novotel Canary Wharf, etc…) so don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can use this deal to get a discount on a stay in Europe, Asia or the US. You can’t.
Secondly, these gift cards will expire 12 months from the date of issue so unless you’re sure that you’ll be able to use whatever gift cards you buy within the next 12 months, put your credit card away.
Thirdly, gift cards cannot be used for pre-paid bookings. They can only be used to pay for a stay at checkout. If you’re someone who always chooses to pay upfront (usually the cheapest, but also the least flexible rates) these gift cards may not be for you.
Fourthly, you have to be a staying guest at a property to use one of these gift cards so you can’t, for example, use a gift card to pay for a meal at an Accor property at which you’re not staying.
Make sure you read all the FAQs (here) before you make a purchase.
For the next five days (through 28 November 2022), Accor ALL is selling UK gift cards with a 20% bonus. If you plan to book (and consume) any Accor stays in the UK in the next 12 months this deal could help you save up to 20% off that stay.
