Country Inn & Suites and Radisson Promos Live!

It’s late, I’m tired, I’m registered, Twitter was fun, and the Country Inn & Suites and Radisson promos are live!  Here are some terms from the official promo websites.  Pretty much what we expected – except it says that previous reservations don’t count.  This is contrary to what they said “officially” on Facebook.  I held off making reservations, but that really stinks for anyone who did.  Boo them for saying one thing on FB and then doing another.  Any rate that earns Gold Points it is good.  Also, you do have to check-in and check-out in person, but it does not stipulate how long you have to stay.  There is a video you have to watch, so turn down the sound.  😉  Confirmation emails are sent out which is very helpful!  I’m off to bed, but I’m sure more details will come to light tomorrow.

In case you want it, here is a screen shot of Club Carlson saying that existing reservations count on Facebook.  Screen shot taken from InfamousDX – thanks!!

  1. Many bloggers (including Mommy Points) stated that existing reservations would qualify. Now the posted T&Cs state they do not. What happened?

    • @ShowMe, they posted on FB that it would count, but then they did something else. i did read somewhere today that they deleted that post on FB, but I think a screenshot of it is on a blog somewhere. Shady, shady.

  2. i registered , do i have to book the hotel room NOW to get 50k offer or i can do later?
    You are now registered for the Radisson Big Night Giveaway. To receive your 50,000 bonus Gold Points®, be sure to complete a qualifying one night stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blu location around the world by July 15, 2012

  3. I managed to get both of us registered. adl73x just canceled his existing reservations and rebooked. I’ll do the same with my DC reservation. DC hotel not taking points and cash though.
    Lucky that I have a Country Inn here….even though a bit pricy.

  4. Tim, who knows? I just emailed the program to see if I managed to qualify for both offers. I am a bit baffled on whether I should book today as well.

  5. @tim why don’t you grow up and learn to be self-sufficient when it comes to understanding rules? you aren’t entitled to anything from anyone.

  6. @Tim – I know the internet and English language can be tough at times, but you really need to check your entitlement issues at the door. Mommy Points isn’t your Mommy – She’s got better things to do than hop on your asinine question, one that is clearly answered in your own comment!

  7. In the T/C:
    Guest must be present at the Participating Hotel at the time of check-in and check-out and enrolled in Club Carlson and registered in the Promotion at the time of check-out

    So it seems the existing reservation should count.

    Coufusing.

  8. David

    if you work under me and have that kinda selfish, arrogant attitude and talk nonsense like this to another person, I’d FIRE YOU on the spot!

  9. @jedijood They should. Any point Gold Points earning rate qualifies for this promo. To be sure though you can look at the booking when you are reserving online and check under the terms of the specific room/rate/date and it will say if that stay earns gold points. If it does, you are good to go. And of course you can always take the route I took and just call the specific hotel to confirm.

  10. have a trip to buffalo ny next week at this address 50 Wyoming Ave, Buffalo, NY

    but sadly the only radisons or country inns are too far away near canada nIGARA FALLS.

  11. I don’t read these T&Cs as saying the stay has to be booked after May 15th:
    “Guest must check in for the Qualifying Stay on or after May 15, 2012 and check out must be completed no later than July 15, 2012 (“Promotion Period”)”

    Maybe we’ll have some official clarification from CC at some point, but most offers I’ve seen that exclude prior reservations are pretty explicit about it, and this one isn’t.

  12. It says “not valid on existing reservations” in the terms, so that doesn’t sound like it leaves too much wiggle room. As for AAA or advance purchase or other rates – as long as they earn Gold Points (and those do) they are good. Click on rate details to make sure it is okay as it will say if it doesn’t.

  13. Now they’re emailing Club Carlson members asking us to register for the promo !

    Remember, NO F&F rate for this but any other rate, AAA, Gov’t etc that earns points is fine.

  14. The prepaid rate says in terms and conditions “cannot be combined with any other promotional offer”. This is clearly a promotion, so even though it earns points, does it count? Am I over-analyzing?

  15. Well no big deal. I will just cancel my existing reservations and rebook. By the way, booking through topcashback will still get me the 2000 extra points for booking online, correct? (2000 as silver member).

  16. @Deals, I think that is what happened last time as well. I remember reading that they did count last time. Either way, if you can rebook for the same or cheaper rate I would do it. If you can’t, then put pressure on Club Carlson and see what happened.

    @mizzkityz, they don’t expire as long as there is activity in your account at least every 24 months.

    @Larry, I think it would be fine as long as it earns points, but you can double check with Radisson if you want extra confirmation.

    @Michael, as long as whatever site you use takes you to the Radisson site to actually make your reservation, you will be fine (think of it like a shopping portal).

  17. Ahh, thanks for the clarification, I missed that line. My bad!

    That stinks. I’ll have to look and see if my rate is still the same!

  18. i dont think TOPCASHBACK is good idea. i heared the stay must be booked thru the site you saw to get the 50k points.

  19. I forgot to register yesterday night. I registered this morning though. Is there any way to know if I am in the first 100,000 people to register.

    Thank you.

  20. whoops my bad. just checked the email they sent and it says i am qualified to earn the 50k points.

    Thanks

  21. Was looking for any radissons or country inn and suits hotel in BUFFALO NY but only found this closest (6) miles and am not sure if it is even a club carlson hotel. “soon to be joining club carlson” Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Buffalo South I-90, NY
    164b Slade Avenue, West Seneca, NY 14224 | 716-259-8520
    Soon to be joining Country Inn & Suites By Carlson .

    My wife is the one going and staying in buffalo for 3 nights. Can I book a room/each night separately using my and wife’s club carlson account so we get total of 88k points vs booking all 3 nights with her account only and just get one 44k club carlson points?

  22. Am I the only one that still hasn’t received an email confirmation from last night? My dad got the emails, but hubby and I didn’t. When I tried to register again, the system said I was already registered. Anyone else experienced this?

  23. I registered this morning for both, I got Email confirmation from Radisson right away that Im registered to receive 50k points on my next stay….

    BUT the country inn & suites i did not get any email confirmation but when I went to register again it did say that I’m already registered! I just hope I’m registered for the 44000 points (not the 15000 that you get after the first 35000 slots fill up)

    is there any way to verify that?

    Thanks

  24. It says you must be there st check out. Are they going to hold us to that? If so, any problems with checking in. and then go look at the room for the hell of it. Then check out 15mins later. I know there can’t possibly be a time limit on how long you have to stay there between check in and check out.

  25. Would it be better to use AAA discount or go for the Double Gold Room? The one I’m looking at is a 20% difference. Trying to figure out the better deal but can’t tell.

  26. @ML, you can call Club Carlson and double check. I did that last year before confirmation emails were sent out.
    @NSL, I can’t imagine there is a time limit either.
    @Ko, that really stinks. Is it more expensive to book it now?
    @Dan, ha ha, personal preference. 😉
