I was told 100 times no chance I would be comped Plat as I have been last 3 years - I finally relented and paid fee for SL to Gold - guess what - profile still showing Plat
Interestingly they told me that even if I paid I would drop to silver, so I decided to just take the Amex complimentary silver.

If you were Plat and didn’t requalify it’s auto SL to Gold for paid renewal - but for some reason they seem hell bent on steering Amex Plat holders into comp Silver via Amex - I don’t get it?

Just a question as I weren’t able to find an answer. But how long does Accor elite status last until you move down?

Oh well, I got the soft landing to gold anyway, even with the Amex complimentary membership, but probably next year will be down to silver as I won't earn gold status.

Renewed Accor Plus with Amex and was given Gold after having been given gifted Platinum by Accor the last few years.

Does anyone have any experience lending the Accor plus card to a friend for the restaurant discount? I expect it is technically not allowable, but would usually not be an issue? Is this correct?

Definitely against T&Cs, on the other hand I've never been asked for ID when using it at restaurants.

How have people gone using the electronic card in the app? I've yet to give it a try but it would mean one less card to think about.

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 :)
