Since bonus points are always a good thing, I wanted to share the news that you can earn 3x Club Carlson points at Country Inn and Suites on eligible stays of two or more nights between June 1 and September 1, 2014. This promo is valid at Country Inns & Suites in the United States, Canada or Latin America. You need to register for the promotion to be eligible. Note that you also have to book the stay by May 31st for the stay to count, even though the promotion runs through September 1st! That is a bit unusual as far as hotel promotions go.
If you pay with your Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card you will earn an additional 10 Club Carlson points per dollar for that charge. By having the credit card you also get Gold status which gives you a 35% points bonus (likely on the base 20 points per dollar, not the bonus 40 points per dollar). In that case you would be earning at least 77 points per dollar all-in on your eligible Country Inn and Suites stays!
That is a very significant number in my book, especially since you will get the last award night free when it comes time to redeem if you have the co-branded Club Carlson card. As an example, assuming you were wanting a stay at one of their 50,000 point per night properties such as the Radisson Blu Ski Resort in Trysil Norway or Radisison Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago (and had the credit card), that means you would just need about $650 in eligible hotel spending at Country Inn and Suites to get TWO award nights at a 50,000 point per night Club Carlson property! That is unmatched by any other current hotel promotion I am aware of right now.
Do be aware that the credit card charges foreign transaction fees, so you may not want to use it outside of the United States. If you have a few nights of hotel stays you need this summer that you could do at a Country Inn and Suites, it might be worth it via this promo if you want to increase your Club Carlson points accounts.
