Goldpointsplus Gold

Just received a (e)mailing from FB offering PE members free Gold upgrade (for a year) with the Radisson/Rezidor Goldpoints Plus programme. Apply before May 15th. Use promotional code FLYBPL05...

I just got this as well. I'd rather it were Starwood platinum, but it's still a nice perk.

Sorry, what is PE members? Is it enough to become a member of FB to be upgraded to Gold?

Re. Q1. Flying Blue Platinum Elite.
Re. Q2. The promotion is there for PEs, but I don't know if there is any control that would check validity.

After the sin up process my account showed as Red. However I then logged into my account using the details sent to my e-mail and my account shows as gold.

This "elite status" won't result in room upgrades with any reliability, right?

It did not seem to be a listed benefit from the brief summary of "Silver and Gold" elite membership benefits.

Hmm. Free comp sign up, no validation, mass mailing, now available on the internet.

Am I the only one who thinks this might get a little abused?

I would rather prefer the same thing with HHonors program, that would be much more useful for me.
