UPDATE: Nordic Choice Club Status Match October 5 – December 5, 2016 (Success)


Yesterday, I wrote (access here) about Nordic Choice Club status match program that is valid between October 5 – December 5, 2016.


Members from eight competing programs including Club Carlson, Best Western Rewards, IHG Rewards Club and Hilton HHonors can have their current membership year + 1 matched with Nordic Choice Club.

You can access the status match form here in Finnish.

Here are the matched programs:

  • Scandic Hotels (used to be part of Hilton!)
  • Rezidor – Club Carlson
  • Hilton HHonors
  • Sokos
  • First Hotels
  • Best Western
  • IHG Rewards Club
  • Global Hotel Alliance (GHA)

So, I took advantage of this offer just after writing the piece yesterday. I attached a copy of my Hilton HHonors Diamond account statement from the APP:


Few hours later an email arrived:



Nordic Choice status may come in handy if one travels in the Norway, Sweden, Denmark and now in Finland as well (they just opened three hotels there).

It is also possible to get Hertz President’s Circle status through this match. Nordic Choice Gold and Platinum members are eligible for a complimentary upgrade.

As I wrote yesterday, I will be in Tromso in February next year and Choice Nordic properties are now one option.
