5.1. Nordic Choice Club has four card levels: BLUE, SILVER, GOLD and PLATINUM. The card level is determined by the number of qualifying nights a member spends at Nordic Choice Hotels in the Nordic and Baltic countries or how many points the member collects during the course the member’s 12-month member period.
5.2. One qualifying night is equivalent to one overnight stay for which bonus points are awarded. Special discounted rates such as, but not limited to, bus tours, crew and agent rates are equivalent to 0.5 qualifying nights at our hotels in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
5.3. Qualifying nights are not calculated for overnight stays paid for with bonus points or for “complimentary” rooms.
5.4. Qualification for a higher card level occurs in accordance with the following regulations:
SILVER – 5 qualifying nights or 15,000 points during the 12-month member period
GOLD – 30 qualifying nights or 50,000 points during the 12-month member period
PLATINUM – 60 qualifying nights or 100,000 points during the 12-month member period
LIFETIME GOLD - 500,000 points since membership began
LIFETIME PLATINUM - 1,000,000 points since membership began
5.5. In the course of a member period, members may qualify for SILVER, GOLD or PLATINUM. There are no qualification requirements for BLUE. Members who are promoted to a higher level will retain this level for all of the next member period (the subsequent 12 months). The calculation of the qualifying nights and bonus points shall revert to zero at the end of the member period. This will not affect the redeemable bonus points.
5.6. The qualification for LIFETIME membership is calculated based on the entire membership time, not per member period. If members reach a LIFETIME level, members will retain this as long as they do not terminate their membership. Members who have reached LIFETIME GOLD still have the opportunity to advance to PLATINUM during a member period, or reach the LIFETIME PLATINUM level in the future according to the rules outlined above.
