Club Carlson is hands down my favorite hotel chain. They are scattered pretty far and wide making redemption’s easy on vacation. They have had some fantastic hotel promos over the years and this one is a decent promotion.
Stay 3 nights get 1 free. But instead of 1 night free you get 38,000 points. I will gladly take 38,000 points because I can use them in all sorts of ways. I can use them for a hotel that is 15,000 a night and get 2 nights from the deal. I can use points and cash at 5,000 a night plus a little cash. Or I can use them at a hotel where 1nights redemption is truly 38,000 points. I prefer the flexibility this promotion gives me.
From the website “A REWARDING WAY TO START THE YEAR. You deserve to get away more this year. Register today and you’ll be on your way to earning 38,000 bonus Gold Points® — enough for a free night at most Carlson Rezidor hotels worldwide! Start by filling out the registration form below and then complete just three eligible nights anytime between January 6, 2014 and April 13, 2014 at any of our more than 1,000 participating hotels worldwide to earn 38,000 bonus points.”
Another reason this is a great promo is its nights, not stays. So spend 3 nights in the same hotel and get the points. Stay 3 different nights in a hotel and get the points. You have some options to do a long weekend over spring break or 3 nights over a couple of months.
I plan to use our points over a couple of nights on our next vacation. We just stayed at the Radisson Blu so I have two more nights to complete until mid April.
