I have never bought into one of these sales but it was a good deal for me this time!
You get a 75% bonus on points purchased. So 70,000 points will be $280.00. Or $.0385 cents per point. I bought in to use for a summer weekend at the Radisson Blu in Chicago. Nightly rates are well over $280 in the summer and often around $340 for a Saturday night in a king bed.
If you have the Club Carlson Visa Card, that’s like paying $140 per night for stays at properties that would cost 50,000 points per night with your 2nd nights free redemption.
Or you can break up the points and use them in a lower cost hotel. One night in a 38,000 and one night in a 28,000 point a night room.
I am looking forward to Radisson Blu again!
