Transfer points to another member

Iím finding contradictory information on this.

Can elite members transfer points to someone else? If so, how?

I have a Radisson Europe account.

My husband and I are both gold members (via credit cards) and can transfer points back and forth. One of us has to call to do so. We are US members.

Is this only an elite benefit?

I transferred points from multiple accounts into my account several years ago (when they had a 50k bonus per Radisson stay promo and I had some relatives stay at Rads).

From the T&C

https://www.radissonhotels.com/en-us...and-conditions


1. Transfers by Members with Elite Status: Radisson Rewards or Radisson Rewards for Business members with Elite Status may transfer points from that member’s account to another account upon request.

2. Transfers within a Household: Radisson Rewards or Radisson Rewards for Business members may transfer points to another member who resides in the same household, provided both individuals have been members for at least one year and the addresses for both accounts involved in the transfer have not been updated within thirty (30) days prior to the transfer request. Radisson reserves the right to require proof of eligibility or residency and, in its sole discretion, deny any request to transfer points.

How would you interpret the two paragraphs above? I would read it as

- elite members can transfer to anyone

​​​​​​​- household members independent of status can transfer amongst themselves

That is exactly what I read - but there is no online option in my account (Gold), called the CS number met with very very long wait, the option of call back from CS worked zilch.

The email I sent from my husband's account also did not received any response, not even Robot reply. He should be able to transfer his to mine even he is just Club due to the Household status.

They probably “right sized” customer service in anticipation of the sale. Lower cost = higher sale price.

Here's the number that I used. .(888) 288-8889‬ We've consolidated points in our family several times. It's been very easy. I wish you success.

Thanks. That was the number I called yesterday. No dice.
I guess the Choice acquisition makes them overwhelmed.

UPDATE
Got an email reply from them this afternoon instructing to call the same number. Today the phone system was better, got a human then one transfer to another rep who was able to perform the consolidation. Now all pts are in my account, his is Zero.
Description shown in my account is a bit weird as Gifting Points "to" (my husband's name) while it should be "from". In his account it said Gifting Points to Member.
In any case I am just glad this is done. Next step is to set up the Rest of the World account. Hopefully it is a glitch-free process.
