FREE STATUS IS IN THE AIR – LANGHAM HOTEL & LE CLUB ACCOR HOTEL
Per View from the Wing:
“The way they verify that you are eligible for the offer is by asking you to input the first six digits of your Visa Infinite credit card. This list of issuer identification numbers from Wikipedia contains 7 different Visa Infinite starting card number options.
The status lasts for 12 months, and normally requires 5 stays in a year to earn but will be renewed after just 2 stays during a year under this offer.
Benefits include 6pm late checkout, a one-category room upgrade each stay, a suite upgrade certificate once per year, complimentary internet, welcome amenities, and a luggage tag.”
Langham hotels are in Auckland, Boston, London, Pasadena, Melbourne, Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong.
There is also a signup link which gives instant Platinum status with Le Club Accorhotels. I tried it and I believe it’s dead. But give it a try. You never know. Otherwise, another offer should surface again in the coming months. I signed up with a link like this earlier this year and use the Platinum status I instantly received to get elite status with several programs. If you’d like to see my results and a sample letter to use for a status upgrade request check out this post which also includes email addresses for several of the top hotel brands. Also remember sometimes you need to be persistent with your request. You may need to make multiple requests till you get the right representative.
