You used to be able to get immediate Platinum Elite status on the Le Club Accorhotels loyalty program when you hold a minimum of 50 Accor shares. At the time of writing, Accor shares are worth €41.50 each and therefore 50 Accor shares should set you back around €2,075 (approx. S$3,200). This benefit has been revised earlier this year and holding the Accor shares will now only give you the Gold Elite status. Instead of putting that money into an investment, did you know that you can purchase the Gold Elite status from Accor for a mere €90?
Purchasing the ibis BUSINESS membership for €90 will automatically upgrade your Le Club Accorhotels status to Gold Elite and it will give you a range of other ibis-specific benefits that you can use at all participating ibis properties around the world (excluding China).
