Air France Flying Blue just announced an improvement in the transfer ratios from Accor ALL — plus a limited-time transfer bonus. Members transferring points between both programs can receive a 15% bonus through December 12, 2022. The bonus applies to transfers from Accor to Flying Blue and the other way around.
Accor – Flying Blue Improved Transfer Ratio
Historically you could convert Accor ALL points to Flying Blue miles at a ratio of 2:1 with a minimum transfer of 2,000 points = 1,000 miles. However, the partners have improved this transfer ratio to 1:1. Now, you will now receive 2,000 Flying Blue miles for every 2,000 Accor points you convert.
For transfers of Flying Blue miles to Accor ALL points, the ratio has not changed from its 4:1 ratio with a minimum transfer of 4,000 miles. That means you will receive 1,000 Accor points for every 4,000 Flying Blue miles you convert.
[Expired] Accor Flying Blue Transfer Bonus Key Terms
- Receive a 15% bonus when you transfer Accor ALL points to Flying Blue miles.
- Also get a 15% bonus when you convert Flying Blue miles to Accor points — although the ratio is much worse.
- The promotion is valid for transfers through December 12, 2022.
- With the promotion, 2,000 Accor ALL points will convert into a total of 2,300 Flying Blue miles.
- When you convert Flying Blue miles to Accor points during this promotion, you'll receive 1,150 points for every 4,000 miles you transfer.
- The minimum transfer with the promotion is 2,000 Accor points or 4,000 Flying Blue miles.
- Allow up to 6 weeks for the transferred points and bonus to post in your account in either case.
Is it A Good Deal?
Accor ALL points have a fixed value since you redeem them in blocks of 2,000 points for €40/~$42 off your next Accor stay. This gives the points a fixed value of 2 euro cents or 2.1-dollar cents per point at current exchange rates.
On the other hand, AwardWallet members have leveraged Flying Blue miles for an average value of 2.28 cents per point. Members have been able to get an even better return on average for long-haul premium cabin travel. Therefore, converting points from Accor to Flying Blue can be a great choice for the right redemption. And the transfer bonus sweetens the deal even more.
Transferring points at a ratio of 1:1 is an excellent option, and the bonus adds even more value. Although Accor to Flying Blue conversions can be a good deal, the same cannot be said for the other way. The initial 4:1 ratio kills the value of this transfer regardless of the level of transfer bonus on offer.
This promotion is a great option if you want to consolidate a bunch of Accor points. The offer allows you to transfer your points and potentially leverage them for even better value. This is especially true if you want to book Flying Blue Promo Rewards or other Flying Blue sweet spots.
Keep in mind that the transfer bonus is slow (up to 6 weeks)! Therefore, if you are looking to transfer points that will hit your account quickly, you need to look at alternatives. Fortunately, Flying Blue partners with every major credit card point currency, and many transfers are instant. So, if you see an award that you want to book now and need to boost your balance, you are best off transferring points from one of the major flexible point currencies.
