Loyalty Traveler Analysis:

The wording of this promotion ‘combined’ with the promotion display shown here is confusing. 

Combined with your online booking bonus of 1,000 or 2,000 points, you can earn:

  • 1 night: 1,000 or 2,000 bonus points

This appears to show there is actually no additional promotion bonus for a one-night stay since 1,000 goldpoints is what any goldpoints plus loyalty program member earns when booking a Carlson Hotel online. And 2,000 points is what a goldpoints elite member normally earns for booking online.

On a 2-night stay does the general goldpoints member get an additional 2,000 points bonus while the elite member only gets an additional 1,000 points bonus on top of the online booking bonus?

Or do all goldpoints members earn 3,000 bonus points in addition to the online booking bonus?

Goldpoints plus customer service had me on hold so long that obviously the terms are confusing on their end too. The Terms and Conditions of this promotion do not even match the promotion webpage advertisement. The webpage ad states this offer is valid for stays through December 28, yet the terms and conditions fine print states December 15.

Did anyone from goldpoints plus proofread the details of this offer?

Bottom line: There is a goldpoints bonus for extended stays in EMEA region. You will find out exactly how it works once you have earned the bonus.

Update Nov 25, 2010: The goldpoints promotion webpage was amended and clarified later in the day after I published this Loyalty Traveler post.

  1. Now the promotion offer terms are clear. That was a quick response from goldpoints.

    Overall this is not a particularly high value bonus offer, but a bonus nonetheless if you are planning a stay at a Radisson Blu, Radisson Edwardian or Park Plaza in EMEA region.
