Club Carlson Pumps Up Points On Stays
January 17, 2013 at 12:07 PM
One thing we’re doing in 2013 is paying serious attention to the hotel loyalty programs we’ve signed up for over the years. It seems like we’re a member of damn near everything, given how easy it has been to register for most loyalty programs. Hey, if it means free minibar items (hey, Kimpton’s InTouch!) or WiFi (hola, Fairmont President’s Club?),then we’re ‘bout it.
However, there comes a time when we have to look at all our membership cards spilling out our travel wallet and ask the all-too-important question: What have you done for me, lately?
We just happened to be looking at our Club Carlson card, thinking we weren’t getting much out of our relationship, when we got news that Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, the company behind Radisson Blu, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson, was launching the Club Carlson Triple Points Returns promotion. Members of the hotel’s rewards program would earn triple Gold Point for eligible nights through March 15, 2013.
We put the scissors down.
Members need to register at www.clubcarlson.com/triplepoints for the promo and also provide their Club Carlson number at the time of reservation or at check-in (the number must be logged in before check-out to get the points).
Apparently there isn’t a maximum number of points you can earn, nor is there a cap on the number of eligible stays, so if you have a lot of travel planned in the future and the hotels listed above are an option, we’d suggest doing the numbers and seeing how fast you can earn perks like free nights (starting at 9,000 gold points, with no blackout dates on standard rooms).
There are other benefits to enjoy with Elite membership including complimentary room upgrades, early check-in and late checkouts.
The moral? Check your cards, check your points, check your kids...
