Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get €5-€10 of Accor Live Limitless hotel points for joining ClubOpinions

You can pick up some free points in Accor Live Limitless, the loyalty programme for Sofitel, Novotel, Ibis, Mercure, Fairmont, Raffles, M Gallery and other brands, by signing up to their ‘opinion panel’ scheme called ClubOpinions.

The first bit of good news is that this is totally separate to other online research panels, such as eRewards, and so everyone qualifies to join.  You will need an Accor Live Limitless account first, of course.

The second bit of good news is that there is a decent sign-up bonus.

You can find out more, and join, on the Accor website here.

Earn Accor points with ClubOpinions

ClubOpinions is:

“an online community which lets you collect Reward Points in exchange for your point of view.  Our panel is exclusive to members of the ALL – Accor Live Limitless programme, and you can collect Reward Points simply by sharing your views in our opinion surveys.”

What this means is that you will be offered regular online surveys which will earn you 25 – 50 Accor Live Limitless points for completing them.  The points will be deposited into your Accor account within five days of completing a survey – you don’t need to build up to a minimum threshold.

This isn’t an incredibly generous earning rate given that Accor points are worth 2 Eurocents each.  However, the surveys are mobile responsive and so you could do them on the train in the morning if you choose.

You get a decent Accor sign-up bonus from ClubOpinions

If you have Accor Silver, Gold or Platinum status, you will receive 100 Accor Live Limitless points for signing up and completing the Welcome Tutorial and a further 250 or 500 points for completing your first survey.

(Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond members of Accor Live Limitless get 500 points. Base level members get 250 points. Everyone gets 100 points for completing their profile.)

Our article on what we think Accor Live Limitless points are worth is here.

500 Accor points are worth €10 off a future Accor stay.  If your account is set up to transfer points directly into Avios in Iberia Plus, you would – when you hit the 3,000 points threshold – receive 500 Avios instead.

You might think that you will get 600 or 300 points after your first survey, because that is what the Accor website is currently saying.  However, last time I tested this elite members received 500 points as per the sign up page.

For clarity, you can’t join Accor from scratch, join ClubOpinions and earn 350 free Avios.  There is a minimum conversion of 3,000 Accor points to Iberia.

Important – earn Avios in Iberia Plus and not British Airways Executive Club

Do NOT transfer your Accor points to British Airways because the rate is worse.

For historical reasons, you only get 0.5 Avios in Executive Club for every 1 Accor point you transfer.

Transfer into Iberia Plus instead and you receive 1 Avios for every 1 Accor point.  You can then move the Avios into British Airways Executive Club via ‘Combine My Avios’.

This HfP article explains how to use ‘Combine My Avios’.


If you have an Accor account, it is worth signing up and doing one survey to get the bonus.  You can then decide if the surveys are worth doing on a regular basis.

ClubOpinions also counts as ‘activity’ for the purposes of extending the life of your Accor Live Limitless accounts, which for many people will be a good reason to join.

    Could anyone successfully sign up for this? I tried to create an account but it would not recognise my postal code (even if I removed the space), which I’ve had for many years out in the Shires.

    • Patrick says:

      Successfully registered and completed the 625 points in less than half an hour…time well spent on a lunch break

      • Stuart says:

        Nope, will not let me sign up using the provide link via the ALL website (signed in). Tried a handfull of times on using iPhone Safari and DuckDuckGo and Windows latop DuckDuckGo. All a say “Postal code does not exist”. It sure does! Normal 2letters 2numbers space 1number 2 letters. Maybe it’s personal. Annoying as I earn and burn low amounts of Reward Points as I get them on regular stays at economy and mid-scale hotels.

  • Hilda M says:

    Accepted my Spanish postal code ok (5 digits) but crashed half way through “tutorial”

  • RussellH says:

    To quote from the home page of Club Opinions:- “ClubOpinions is a panel owned and operated by Dynata,LLC f/k/a Survey Sampling International, LLC”…

    … and e_Rewards “Dynata Global UK Limited (f/k/a Research Now Limited), e-Rewards and the e-Rewards logo are trademarks of Dynata Global UK Limited (f/k/a Research Now Limited).”

    they are not really independent of each other – both are run by Dynata and you will be offered more or less identical surveys on both panels.

    The downside of Club Opinions is that there will be times when you cannot complete any of their surveys and your time is completely wasted, as you only get your 25 points when the survey is completed. The upside is that one completed survey will stop your points from expiring, if you need to do that

    They have improved their homepage recently, though, so you can see which surveys will give you 25 points for 10 mins effort, and which expect you to spend 25 minutes for 25 points.

    And remember that you need to complete 80 surveys to get €40,– of Accor credit…

    I get accor points sent immediately to Iberia after earning, I don’t have to hit 3000

    • Rob says:

      Yes, if you turned that on during previous promotions then it still works this way (as it does for my wife). I’m not sure if you turn it on normally that it does that.

    • neuromancer says:

      how does this trick work? it used to be like that, but they changed the website and I could not make it happen again
