Club Carlson was on fire with hotel promotions back in 2012, but they were pretty quiet through 2013 on the promotion front. Club Carlson may not sound like an overly exciting or familiar hotel program to some, but trust me these are points you want to have. I’m just about out of Club Carlson points after redeeming for some pretty good hotels in Europe (for trips that will be happening soon), so am happy to report a promotion is back that can result in a fair number of bonus Club Carlson points.
It is advertised as “Stay 3 Nights, Get 1 Free”, but your free night you earn is points, not a night certificate (and that’s a good thing). After you register and complete three eligible nights between January 6, 2014 and April 13, 2014 at any of their 1,000+ participating hotels worldwide, you earn 38,000 bonus points. As a point of reference, their lowest category hotels go for 9,000 points per night, and their top end hotels go for 50,000 points per night. Only one bonus per member will be awarded, so I would move on to a different chain’s promo after three nights. Stays or nights paid for using Points + Cash are not eligible for this promotion. Registration must be received before checkout of the first eligible stay to qualify.
I have two nights during the promotion period that I’m pretty sure will be paid nights at a Club Carlson hotel, so now I just have to decide if I will have a third that will trigger the bonus 38,000 points. This may not sound like an overwhelming number of points, but keep in mind that it only takes 50,000 points to stay at a top end Club Carlson hotel, and when you have the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature like I do, then your last award night is free. That means that this promo almost gives me enough bonus points for two free nights in a top end Club Carlson hotel like the May Fair in London.
I think a promo that essentially gives me almost enough points for two award nights in a top tier hotel for three paid stays isn’t too shabby compared to the other offers out there.
