? Do you instantly get upgraded to the higher status level the moment you cross the relevant threshold or do you have to wait for the following calendar year for you to be awarded the new status?

All of current year and whole next calendar year.

I ask as I'm presently a Silver member but will have stayed >30 nights towards the end of the year. Hence, if Gold status is awarded as I hit the relevant threshold, I may want to wait for me to reach Gold before pulling the trigger on this offer. That way I earn 15 bonus nights instead of 10.

You should be able to double-dip on the same fast track promo as your status changes. Meet requirements as Silver, get 10 nights, meet requirements again as Gold, get 15 nights. I did exactly this with another Accor Fast Track last year.

One other question, and again, apologies if it's silly, but do stays at Ibis Budget hotels count as stay nights towards elite status? I know Ibis Budgets in most of the world aren't part of ALL so obviously no benefits there but would be curious if the stay would at least count.

Most Ibis Budgets in Australia are now part of ALL. If you browse to the hotel listing page while logged in you'll see some ticks indicating whether you can earn points for the stay. Properties which earn points will also earn status nights - again experience, I did a 2nt mattress run at Ibis Budget Enfield in December to hit Platinum.

Thanks sudoer for the advice. I managed to subscribe to the offer using the Silver/Gold/Platinum link found on Google for Accor+ members:

In case anyone is having trouble registering, I thought I'd point out that this didn't work for me initially using Safari. However, when I booted up the Chrome browser I was able to register for the offer using the link.

One other question to ask, if I may, does the stay need to be booked after registering for the promotion? I've got a ton of Accor stays already booked throughout the year and would hate to have to book another one (even if it resulted in an exciting mattress run).

Also I just realized the Ibis Budget I'm staying at for the AFF event is apparently part of ALL:

I believe so, but don't know whether it's actually necessary.

Do you have any flexible stays where the property is still offering the same rate? You could cancel and rebook to ensure you'll get the Fast Track.

I do. I'm staying at the Ibis SYD towards end of month booked in for $84/night as an Accor+ Flex rate. I guess I'll cancel that out and rebook just to be sure.

One other question: how long does it take for the bonus stays to credit? Also, how exactly does the double dipping work? Right now I'm at 18 nights, after my stay at the Ibis I should be at 29 nights and then I've got one night at the Pullman SYD booked in late June which would put me at 30 nights which if I'm not mistaken would get me to Gold. At that point, do I just revisit the site as Gold and re-register?

For me, the Fast Track +10 / +15 both posted on the same day the points & status nights for the stay arrived. This varies by property but is usually 2-4 days after checkout.

You don't need to re-register for the Fast Track after making Gold, but I would suggest cancelling & rebooking another stay (or making a fresh booking) to ensure the Gold nights post.

Hopefully not a dumb question but thought I'd ask, how does accruing Accor status work? Do you instantly get upgraded to the higher status level the moment you cross the relevant threshold or do you have to wait for the following calendar year for you to be awarded the new status?

You are instantly upgraded (or within days) of the qualifying stay posting. You then keep that status till 31 Dec of the following year.

Update: Apparently it's not necessary to make your Accor bookings after registering for the Promotion, as the Ibis Sydney Airport hotel booking I made prior to registering for the promotion has now posted, along with the bonus night stays:

With my stay late next month at the Pullman, I should be at exactly 30 nights which will get me to Gold and the next accelerator: 15 bonus nights on the following stay as a Gold!
