I’m not a huge fan of Radisson, and I haven’t paid too much attention to Goldpoints since late 2001/early 2002 when their then-active shopping portal offered huge bonuses and the points could be transferred to miles at wonderful ratios.
But they’ve gotten more aggressive with their promos the past couple of years, and I do like one of their most innovative (in my humble opinion) benefits.. I believe they’re stil offering this free status upgrade offer, and that includes their “Our World, Your Lounge” benefits in Europe, Middle East, and Africa — elite members are welcome any time in any hotel (when not staying!) for a free coffee, tea or hot chocolate for two people and to use free wireless internet.
And hey, it’s 1000 points.
