An update...

Tried to register and it tells me my Skymiles number is invalid...

That said, I suspect this may only be available to new members. Additional verbage from link in post #1:

Join Club Carlson, the global rewards program from the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, between July 8 and July 18, 2013 and as a new member you will receive complimentary Gold Elite status through February 28, 2014.

Tried to register my Skymiles number this morning too and also yielded the "...the Skymiles number you entered is invalid." Following up with @Deltaassist now. Hmm

The offer quoted in the OP did say "for select SkyMiles members" so I would assume that this is targeted, although perhaps even not necessarily just for elites.

One can get Gold for free with some thorough Googling and no SM status

I would assume that those of us who received the email were targeted, seems to be a problem with their Skymiles number verification

maybe the targeted group is elites with mailing addresses outside of the USA or in Europe.

Got it too, mailing address in the USA.

However, got the same error as the rest with invalid SkyMiles number. Maybe they should test these systems before sending out emails.

I got it too. In fact, I should have checked my email before guessing from the two reports about that Europeans were being selected. Maybe I should check out the new Radisson Blu at MOA.

I called up Club Carlson. They said they've had multiple calls about this issue, and their IT is working on it. No idea on when it'll be fixed though.

I just tried again and it worked! Says it may take up to two weeks to be activated though...

I didn't get the email (or at least I don't think, can't check home email from work) but the offer worked for me from the link!
