DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE PLAN

 Now if you really want to get some Club Carlson points, here is a way you can earn almost 400,000 Club Carlson points per family/couple/friend.

WHAT TO DO:

  • Make 4 stays with each 2 nights a piece.  
  • Book the first night under your account.  Book the second night under your spouse/family member/friend.  You just check out in the morning and he checks in for the next night.  Usually they will not even switch you into another room.  Especially with this promotion going on they will understand why you booked the nights under each separate account.  This is absolutely legit and no rules I’ve ever seen forbid it.  You can share your points for free with anyone you like.  They don’t even have to be a family member.  So sweet!

So here is the breakdown:

Radisson Stays = 52,600 points x 2 = 105,200 points

Park Inn Stays:  46,600 points x 2 = 93,200 points

Country Inn & Suites: 46,600 x 2 =  93,200 points

 Park Plaza : 52,600 x 2 = 105,200 points

TOTAL POINTS EARNED: 396,800

Whooo this is so fun!

 

Now to find the cheapest rate.  Here are my suggestions.  Find the cheapest night that Radisson, Park Inn or Country Inn’s has for the night you want to stay.  Then drop that price down even lower using the “Best Rate Guarantee” policy.  The policy is the same no matter if you are staying at a Radisson, Park Inn, or Country Inn.  

Best Rate Guarantee

How It Works

If you find a rate on another website that is lower than the best rate on countryinns.com – and the rate is for the same date(s), same room type, same number of guests, at the same hotel and same rate terms or restrictions – let us know and we will honor the lower rate AND discount that rate by 25%.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Use the tools listed below to search for the cheapest night to do the Best Rate Guarantee.  Remember the rate only has to beat their rate by cents technically and you get that rate plus 25% off.  Usually, you can find something for at least a little bit cheaper to qualify you for a BRG.

Well, folks have fun with this one!  Sure a smart promotion to come out with just as summer is about to hit!  So take your kids to Disneyland for the weekend or maybe Legoland if you live in Cali.  I’m checking all the locations as I’m writing this post.  Thinking maybe I could head south stay a night in Venture at a Country Inn after a day at Disneyland which would be on the way home to San Luis Obispo.  There is only 1 Park Inn that’s in California.  Can you believe that.  Fortunately, it’s in Fresno very close to my in-laws.  I’ll be visiting them over 4th of July so maybe I can stay a night there if my hubby’s on board.  Finally Radisson, I’m lucky enough to have one 30 minutes from me.  Maybe I can just stalk the rates and do BRG for something real cheap.  It’s Santa Maria and every knows that’s no paradise!  So I’ll probably just checkin and let the kids have fun playing in the pool and head home to my nice comfy bed.

How about you?  Are you thinking of playing along!  If you have some trips planned in May, June & July and you can work these hotels in you are totally scoring a sweet deal.  I don’t have any trips plans so I’m just getting creative and planning some.  Just had a thought!  The hubby needs parking at the LAX Airport.  Maybe I’ll book him a night at the Radisson LAX, he can check in and park his car there while he’s on his trip.  A bit more than the cost of parking but 50,000 points is sure worth it. 


 

UPDATE:  Just booked the hubby’s room for 5/16 at Radisson LAX Airport.  The rate was $149 (ouch).  So I did a BRG and got it down to $77.  Pretty sweet!  Now I’m just coming down till we can register next week on the 15th.  Working on some others plans for my points and the other property stays.  Guess we are going to have to take the kids to Legoland in June or July.

UPDATE: 5/1712
Overnight parking at the Radisson LAX is $20 a night.  So you don’t want to park here.  Parking lot right next to Radisson LAX is only $10 though.

UPDATE: 5/20/12

  1. Do you know if staying a night at Radisson on points and cash, count as a stay for the 50,000 points?

    1. Yes….you can earn the 50,000 bonus points with Cash & Points reservations. Here is Radisson’s response to being asked that questions on their Facebook page:

      Radisson Hi, Thomas. The Terms & Conditions state that “Carlson hotels loyalty program members can earn Gold Points®” with the AAA Rate, so yes, it’s eligible. And Jung Whuan, the Points + Cash rate is eligible as you earn bonus points on the cash portion of the rate. We hope you enjoy your bonus Gold Points ®. For more details, check out: / See Radisson Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/Radisson?ref=ts

  2. Hey, it’s me again!
    Did my first mattress run and chose Country Inn, since it was close and cheap. Finally my points posted today, went to book the Quito hotel I had previously spotted for 15,000 points per night and NOW it is 28,000 pts per night! grrrr! hotel went up a category on June 1st (yesterday). So now I have to do another mattress run this week to get more points in order to have enough for the entire stay (2 nights, 2 rooms).
    Last year I called Club Carlson and combined some of the family points into one account. This year, I see that you can gift miles online, but it is $7 per 1000, same as buying them (?) Do you know if a phone call will allow me to combine points into one account? just looking for some pointers before I call.

    1. Yes! You can absolutely transfer your points to another family member for free over the phone. I transferred 50,000 points last year from my husband’s account to my account. The thing is the other family member need to give permission. So have the family member with you when you make the call or conference call them in and then call Club Carlson. Once they give permission 1 time you will not need to get permission again. They set up your account to always be able to “share” with that account. Pretty cool! I need to call and combine hubby & my accounts too! Both our points have posted 52k for him and 54k for me. He I have Gold status on my account so I got a few extra points. Forgot to get status put on his account. Ooops! Missed that one!

    2. BTW I did my first mattress run too! My hubby thinks I’ve really lost it now! It was so fun with the kiddos! I think I’ll post about it!

    3. Just transfer my Club Carlson points from hubby’s account to mine (permission was previously set up last year). It was a 5 minute call and the points transferred instantly as I clicked on updated through Award Wallet. Wow! I’m loving Club Carlson’s program. Also, just to note I asked more about transferring points – you can transfer point to ANYONE – family, friend or your neighbor – for FREE!!! Loving it!!!
