After withdrawing all its free status offers, Accor has been very stingy and there’s almost no way to fast track to Platinum status (still some for Gold and Silver). While Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt etc. are all offering fast track or status match opportunities, Accor doesn’t seem to care.
It seems though that Accor has finally opened up its gate. As you can see on this page, you will earn a certain number of bonus night credits after booking and staying once by the end of this year.
Note that it must be a new booking made after registration. Classic, Silver and Gold members earn 5, 7 and 10 bonus night credits respectively. There’s no incentive for Platinum members.
There’s a catch though – this is a targeted offer intended for Flight Centre Travel Group clients. However the terms and conditions make no suggestion that you must book via them to trigger the offer, so there is a chance that it may work for every one.

If you have any plan of staying at an Accor hotel by the end of this year, it’s a no brainer to sign up even if it may not work in the end. Night credits collected this year also count towards status in the next year.
