Summer is typically a pretty busy travel season, so we typically don’t see the best hotel promos of the year happen during the summer months. In fact, some hotel chains don’t even offer any global summer promos on certain years as they just don’t need to incentivize the incremental business since hotels are already full. That being said, here are two new summer hotel promos that aren’t amazing, but are worth knowing about in case your travel plans take you to these hotel chains.
Starwood Preferred Guest Weekend Summer Promo:
SPG has launched a new SPG Weekends website to help their customers “make the most of their weekends by providing inspiration for weekend travel and adventure.” You can check out their new site linked above, but the main reason I am sharing this info is that they also announced that from June 1 through August 31st you can earn 1,000 bonus SPG points when staying for two or more weekend nights at SPG hotels (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday).
Registration links and a promo page are still to come, so I’ll be sure to share when it is available.
Club Carlson 5,000 Bonus Points Promo:
Club Carlson is far from my favorite program right now given this and this, but in case you have some eligible paid Club Carlson stays planned in June or July, know that you can get 5,000 bonus points if you are an elite member who books a stay between May 4 – May 31, 2015. Anyone who has the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card automatically has Gold status, so if you have that card you qualify for this promo. There is no separate registration link for this promotion.
This should stack with the multitude of other Club Carlson promos that are out there right now including:
- Club Carlson cardholders were given an offer to receive 30,000 bonus points after one eligible stay paid with the Club Carlson Visa between April 1 – August 31, 2015.
- Triple points on eligible Club Carlson stays from April 6 – June 28, 2015. You must register for the triple points promotion.
- Some properties also offer a Mega Bonus of up to 10,000 points per night
- 1,000 bonus points for booking via their app
* The 5K Elite Summer Bonus Point Promotion (“Promotion”) is valid for 5,000 bonus Gold Points® (“Bonus Points”) on each Eligible Stay booked between May 4, 2015 and May 31, 2015 and completed between June 1, 2015 and July 31, 2015. You must be a Club CarlsonSM Elite member at the time of reservation to participate in the Promotion. “Eligible Stay” is defined in the Club Carlson Terms and Conditions. Stays paid for using Points + Cash are not eligible for this Promotion. Bonus Points will be credited when the standard Gold Points are credited for the Eligible Stay. Club Carlson reserves the right to add, modify, or discontinue the Promotion with or without notice. Void where prohibited by law. By participating in this Promotion, you agree and consent to these Terms and Conditions and the Club Carlson Terms and Conditions.
