Over the past month Hilton and Hyatt have been running promotions to discount the cost of their hotel points, so it only seems right that Club Carlson have now launched their own, very similar promotion. Club Carlson are currently offering a 75% bonus when you buy Club Carlson points until 15th May 2017. In the past Club Carlson have been very quick at adding the purchased and bonus Gold points to members account, usually only taking a couple of days. As soon as Club Carlson Gold points have been deposited you can then use the points to book redemption nights (as either points, or a points and cash rate) at any of their hotel brands including Radisson Blu, Park Plaza and Park Inn.
Normally, to receive a bonus when purchasing hotel points you need to purchase a large amount of points. With this promotion Club Carlson allow you to purchase from as little as 1,000 Gold points, up to the maximum of 40,000 Gold points annually. Club Carlson will credit an amount of 750 bonus Gold points for each 1,000 Gold points purchased.
The bonus points do not form part of the annual limit, so a total of 40,000 Gold points can be purchased with a further 30,000 Gold points being received as a bonus, for a cost of $280. That works out a £3.00 per 1,000 Gold points ($4 per 1,000 Gold points).
Offer ends 15th May 2017.
If you are looking to purchase more than you annual limit of 40,000 Club Carlson points then consider purchasing over multiple accounts (a partner’s account etc). If you live at the same property, or at least the Club Carlson account addresses match then you can combine points together as part of a household account. This applies for all Club Carlson members who live at the same address, as per their site:
“Club Carlson members may transfer Gold Points to another Club Carlson member who resides in the same household, provided both individuals have been Club Carlson members for at least one year and the addresses for both accounts involved in the transfer have not been updated within thirty (30) days prior to the transfer request. Carlson reserves the right to require proof of eligibility or residency and, in its sole discretion, deny any request to transfer Gold Points.”
