    I just got this unclear email about signing up with TGI Fridays and they give you 1000 Gold Points. Seems a little unclear but I thought I would share. Seems to be targeted email but hey sharing is free.
    Can we get a Club Carlson Radisson Forum now??

    I got this email as well. At the rate at which I am currently acquiring Carlson points it will soon have my highest hotel balance ;)

    I like several of the properties but they seem like the hotel equal to Delta Skypesos. Not worth as much as they should be. They are running some great and easy points promotions though.

    Not sure if you're equating the hotel to skypesos or the program itself... either way, they do have some really, really nice properties -- especially if you're traveling outside of the US -- and pretty good redemption opportunities for miles or other stuff.

    And as far as the program goes, even if Skypesos aren't worth much and you don't want to fly Delta, having a few hundred thousand in the bank "just in case" is never a bad thing. Comes in handy if you ever have someone visiting and you want to put them up on a hotel for free... it's better than using your own SPG points for example. :)

    Mrs. flyingdawg has an acocunt also and did not get the offer. Mrs. flyingdawg never stays in a hotel and I manage the account for her. Either her lack of activity or the fact that we share the same snail mail address may have led to her not getting this offer.

    I assume they match our TGIF account based on the email address to the Club Carlson account? (I wasn't asked for me Club Carlson number).

    I just got my email response back from them:
    "Please allow 6-8 weeks for the 1,000 Club Carlson points to post to your
    account.

    Sincerely,

    Ryan A | Member Services Representative, Carlson Hotels
    phone 888.288.8889 | fax 402.501.9166 | clubcarlson@carlson.com

    Take advantage of your Club Carlson benefits, earning opportunities and
    reward options at clubcarlson.com."

    So it seems they must know how to match it. Too bad I couldn't get the points sooner since I could have used them to put me over the top on a US Air Grand Slam hit. Oh well there is always next year on that.

    Yeah could be an address thing. I make sure to keep a different email address for my wife's accounts and I also try to alter the snail mail address slightly when possible. My favorite tool for this is award wallet. It's so nice to keep our accounts all together on one page. I'd sign her up and hope for the best.

    I signed up the day I received the email, 11/11/11. It said I should receive something from Friday's in 3-5 days with my free coupon, etc. Almost a month later and I haven't received anything, plus I logged onto the Friday's site and my stripes balance is 0 instead of 100. Seems like a total scam from the Friday's side. I hope that my CC points still post, that is the important thing. Anyone else had any luck with this promotion?
