The Club Carlson fast track to gold status offer has unofficially reopened. A few years ago, back in 2014, Club Carlson offered a fast track to gold status without the need for any hotel stays. This week I tested the link by creating a new account. Immediately after signing in to the Club Carlson account it showed as Red, the basic status. When logging in again 3 days later the account successfully showed as Club Carlson gold status.
Club Carlson, who have hotel brands in the UK as Radisson Blu, Park Plaza and Park Inn, currently have 4 different statuses including red (issued at normal signup), silver, gold and concierge. Gold status is triggered after 35 nights or 20 stays in a calendar year. The key status benefits of Club Carlson gold are complimentary room upgrades, a welcome gift on arrival and enhanced point earning rate on paid stays. Club Carlson gold status members also benefit from a little known 2-4-1 and 4-4-2 promotion (Club Carlson room rate promotions).
Instant Club Carlson Gold Status
Instant gold status with Club Carlson is only available for new accounts. If you already have a Club Carlson account with a lower status and no/few points then it may be worthwhile considering creating a new account for yourself, a partner, or your frequent traveller friend.
To create a Club Carlson account sign up and to be fast tracked to gold status use this special link to be transferred to a private page on the Club Carlson site. Make sure to enter the promotion code AMEXGOLD on the sign up page. Around 3 days after creating the account it will successfully show as Club Carlson gold status. If your account is not updated send an email through to email@example.com with your account number.
