Over the last couple of days I have seen multiple reports of Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card holders getting a letter in the mail informing them that they will receive an e-certificate for a free night at any Carlson Rezidor hotel as a token of appreciation for being a Club Carlson cardholder. As you probably remember, the popular “last award night free” benefit of being a Club Carlson cardholder was cut back on June 1st, so I’m guessing they have had their fair share of unhappy card members since that time.
I still have my card, and for simplicity’s sake I’ve recently been tossing any mail that looks like junk without going through it as thoroughly as a I usually do, so after seeing several reports I started to think that it is very possible I got a similar letter but accidentally threw it away. So, I did what any “reasonable” person would do and decided we needed to go through the trash and look for the letter in case we missed it. Well, to be totally accurate, my husband was willing to go through the trash while I took care of the little one in her wrap…I clearly got the better end of that deal.
Several dirty diapers, a weeks worth of trash, and a wasp sting later he didn’t find anything in the trash can from Club Carlson or US Bank. Okay, maybe it wasn’t worth going through the trash after all…
Since the letter indicates that the e-certificate will be sent via email in 6-8 weeks, I’ll just keep my eyes open and see if one appears even though I haven’t yet seen a letter indicating we will receive the free night. So, ultimately I don’t recommend trash diving for the letter like we did – just keep an eye on your mail box and email inbox for the next few weeks to see if anything appears. If nothing ever appears, it may be worth a call to US Bank at some point to see if you can get included in the offer – at least that is what I will probably try.
Have you received a letter indicating you will receive a free award night at any Club Carlson property?
