As expected staying up late to register for the three Club Carlson “Big Night” promotions wasn’t necessary (but it sure was fun), however all three promotions from Radisson, Park Inn, and Country Inn & Suites are now at capacity, and aren’t accepting additional registrations for the 44K – 50K point version of the promotions. I think they actually have been at capacity for a little bit now, but I just hadn’t gotten a chance to write about it until now.
I am choosing to write about a promotion that is at capacity for two reasons:
- I want to congratulate everyone who registered on time! These promos still have several weeks to go, so I am very glad so many of us took registration seriously and did it ahead of time. With almost any promotion, it makes sense to go ahead and register even if you aren’t 100% sure you will be able to participate. Much better to be over-prepared than to be left out of a major points haul when travel plans pop-up at the last minute.
- I also don’t want anyone getting their friends and family super excited about this promotion only to have them find out that it is too late to get in on the action. They can still earn an extra 15,000 Club Carlson points for their stay with the various Club Carlson hotel chains by registering for the promotions, but that isn’t quite the same as 44,000 – 50,000 points just for staying one night.
Also, I wanted to report that some of my TopCashBack dollars have moved from being “pending” to the “payable”. So far it is just three referrals I made to TopCashBack that are payable and not my actual Club Carlson reservation dollars, but I have received a couple emails from readers who said that their Club Carlson reservation dollars are now payable as well. By the way, thanks to the five readers who used my link to sign-up! You get $10 for every referral once the person you refer earns $10 in payable money in their account, so be sure to get your family and friends to sign-up using your link! I am sure there will be some kinks with TopCashBack (in fact, I have already heard some of those stories), but I am happy to report some movement with the credit in my account. I am by no means going to get rich by using this service, but every little bit helps.
The bonus points from my recent Park Inn stay have now credited to my Club Carlson account. I did not check-out in person and the points posted after about three days. One more stay at Country Inn & Suites and I will have completed the Club Carlson trifecta! This is absolutely my favorite hotel promotion of the summer. How are you doing with this promotion? Is TopCashBack working for you as intended? Have you decided where you are using your Club Carlson points?
