Club Carlson Two Nights 10,000 Points Promotion

Normally, I don’t do write ups on all the hotel stay promotions since these are not points you can earn from the comfort of your home or around the city you live.  Once in a while, I feel there is a good hotel stay promotion worth mentioning for those traveling for pleasure during the promotion time period.  Club Carlson had a great “Stay One, Get One” promotion last year and a “Stay One Night, Get 50,000 points” promotion before that.  This year the promotion is definitely not as lucrative but still worth mentioning.    Two year ago, I did my first mattress run for the 50,000 points but I wouldn’t recommend that for this promotion.  I would just recommend considering a stay at a Club Carlson property if you are traveling during the promotion period rather than another hotel brand.


Club Carlson is currently offering 10,000 points bonus for each stay of 2 or more consecutive nightsfrom May 13, 2013 to July 21, 2013.  Registration is required before the stay.  You can register through this link here:

Club Carlson brand hotels include: Country Inns and SuitesRadissonRadisson BluPark Inn by Radisson,  and Park Plaza.

NOTE: Reservations must be booked directly with Club Carlson online, over the telephone or booked directly with the hotel to be eligible.  You can not book through third party websites.  Be sure to book online though and receive 1,000 to 3,000 bonus points per reservation depending upon your status level.

So if you are planning any “paid” stays during this time of the summer, you might think about Club Carlson properties to earn these bonus points.  This isn’t a huge score though; especially if you have the Club Carlson Visa.  Club Carlson Visa cardholders you can earn 10,000 points just from spending $2,000 which can easily be acommpolished by purchasing Vanilla Reloads at CVS and loading them on your AMEX Bluebird.

If you haven’t got the Club Carlson Visa credit card, I highly recommend it.  This card is not a part of any affiliate network so you won’t read a lot about (meaning no bloggers earn any referral commissions), but I believe it is one of the top hotel loyalty brand cards currently available with the best earning potential.  This is a credit for your wallet and not your desk drawer.  Many credit cards are great for a nice bonus but not a long term card.  The Club Carlson Visa gives you a real nice bonus too of 85,000 points.  This will get you many free nights depending upon how you redeem this points.  Club Carlson free nights start at only 9,000 points per night for category 1.  The card earns you 10 points per dollar at any Club Carlson brand hotel and 5 points per dollar everywhere else.  You also receive 40,000 bonus points annually just for having the card.  But the best benefit is that card members receive one free night whenever they book two consecutive award nights.  Limited to 50 free nights annually. This is an incredible benefit that no hotel loyalty card can even touch.  I’ve personally used this benefit many times since getting the card last year immediately after it first launched.  I used it on all three Radisson Blu reservations just recently in Ireland. It was awesome!

  1. Actually, there is a limit to the number of free nights one can get per year. As per CC terms- Maximum fifty (50) Bonus Award Nights per calendar year per member with an open Account (“Annual Maximum”). If a reservation with a Bonus Award Night is subject to a cancellation penalty, the Bonus Award Night from that reservation will count against the Annual Maximum.

    1. @Kam – Totally didn’t know that. Thanks for the important info. I have read the T&C’s in full and you are totally correct. Here is the details:
      “2 Bonus Award Night: When you redeem Gold Points for Award Nights of two or more consecutive nights at the same participating Carlson Rezidor hotel property, you will receive the last of the Award Nights of that stay free without deduction of any Gold Points from your Club Carlson account (“Bonus Award Night”). Your Account must be open and reservation must be in the Club Carlson member’s name and use the member number associated with your Account to be eligible for the Bonus Award Night. The Bonus Award Night offer is available only on advance reservations for Award Nights paid in full with Gold Points and is not valid with standard paid reservations or Points + Cash redemption reservations. Only one Bonus Award Night will be available for a stay of two or more consecutive nights at the same hotel (early checkout with one night stay not eligible), regardless of the total length of stay, the total number of reservations or the number of check-in/check-outs, is subject to availability and all other terms and conditions and cancellation policies regarding Award Nights apply. Does not apply to additional reservations booked as contiguous stays at the same hotel. Only one room per reservation, per hotel for an Award Stay will be eligible to receive the Bonus Award Night offer. Maximum fifty (50) Bonus Award Nights per calendar year per member with an open Account (“Annual Maximum”). If a reservation with a Bonus Award Night is subject to a cancellation penalty, the Bonus Award Night from that reservation will count against the Annual Maximum. A Bonus Award Night has no Gold Point or cash value and cancellations involving a Bonus Award Night will not result in the credit of any additional Gold Points in your Club Carlson account.”

  2. As I saw posted somewhere, got approved for the Business Visa not the personal Visa; said to many account inquiries the past 12 months even though all 3 credit agencies report a credit score of 780 or higher; will keep trying a few more times and see if I can find a sympathetic reconsideration agent; any suggestions on a different approach to use to get the personal Visa approved?

    1. @Billy D – I would call again and let them know that you’ve been approved for the business visa and based upon the same credit report and score and you’d really like to use their card for your personal expenses as well. Just to let you know Barclay is weird. I applied for bus & personal and they couldn’t even find my personal application. They said they had no record I applied. Got initially declined on business because they couldn’t verify my identity. Never heard that one before. Kept calling and they could never find my personal application. Rep said I should re-apply after 30 days if I didn’t receive a letter. Then within a week or two both credit cards showed up in the mail. So I don’t really think their system are so good. Definitely not like an AMEX or Chase experience.
