    AMEX platinum Accor plus reinstated

    Never had an issue, only drawback when dining with other "Accor Plus friends" (we managed to convert quite a few over the years...) is having to hand over a pile of smartphones to the waiter :)

    Has anyone else had issues claiming the free brekkie for Platinum?

    AMEX platinum Accor plus reinstated

    It looks like Accor Plus are no longer able / willing to comp Platinum status on renewal. Best they can do is $355 with a couple of breakfast vouchers Gold doesn’t give you lounge access & complementary brekkie in APAC, you need to factor in the free night (worth close to $300 in some hotels eg...
