‘Back in the day’ Club Carlson had some really good promotions that were so lucrative that it was potentially worth booking hotel stays you didn’t otherwise need just to earn the bonus points. It has been a while since we saw something like that, but there is a now a new Club Carlson promo that I can see being really valuable in select situations.
With this new Club Carlson promotion you can earn a free Friday night stay (or 10,000 bonus points) for just two paid stays between July 1 – September 30, 2017. You need to register for this promotion and your “Free Friday” certificate will be delivered as an e-Certificate to use between October 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018. You can earn up to three free Fridays, or a total of 30,000 bonus points, but you have to just select one type of bonus for the duration of the promotion. Since Club Carlson has some very inexpensive properties across the country, I could see it being possible to earn a free Friday you could use at an expensive property in London or similar for just $130 or so out of pocket, maybe less.
Once registered for the promo, you will earn a Friday E-Cert with two eligible paid stays at Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson hotels worldwide.
The free Friday E-Certs are valid for reservations on a single Friday night at any Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson hotels worldwide for stays between October 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018. Each Friday E-Cert is valid for a new reservation booked on a Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group website using the unique Friday E-Cert code provided. Separate reservations may be made for additional nights before and/or after the Friday night reservation. The Friday E-Certs will expire on January 26, 2018. Friday E-Certs that are used on a reservation that is cancelled within the hotel’s cancellation policy and before the expiration date may be re-used. All incidental charges, such as gratuities, parking, resort fees, room service and room entertainment are excluded.
The Friday E-Certs will be awarded three times throughout the promotion, by Aug. 15 for E-Certs earned in July, by Sep. 15 for E-Certs earned in August and by Oct 15 for E-Certs earned in September. You will be notified that you have a Friday E-Cert via email and awarded Friday E-Certs will be visible under ‘My Account’ when you are logged in on clubcarlson.com.
I have really enjoyed my Club Carlson award stays using e-Certs and points in otherwise potentially expensive cities such as Edinburgh, London, Madrid, and across Norway, and could see a free Friday night award being worth hundreds of dollars if you have plans to go through somewhere with one of the nicer Club Carlson properties on a Friday night by January 26, 2018.
We may toss our hats in the ring for this one if the stars align to make it worth it. Are you going to be able to rack up some free Friday night stays thanks to this Club Carlson promo?
