This is a reminder that you have just 5 days left for the amazing Club Carlson promotion! There are currently 4 versions of the promotion, each with different bonus points and expiration dates. You can also take a look at this previous post with the top 10 questions regarding this promotion.
- Radisson/Radisson Blu: Earn 50,000 bonus points after your first stay. Expires 7/15. Unfortunately, if you have yet to register you will only receive 15,000 bonus points.
- Country Inn & Suites: Earn 44,000 bonus points after your first stay. Expires 7/15. Unfortunately, if you have yet to register you will only receive 15,000 bonus points.
- Park Inn: Earn 44,000 bonus points after your first stay. Expires 7/22. There are only 10 Park Inn properties in the US, so this one is more challenging to partake in.
- Park Plaza: Earn 50,000 bonus points after your first stay. Expires 8/28. There is only 1 Park Plaza property in the US (Bloomington, MN).
Unfortunately the first three promotions have already hit its maximum number of registrations, so if you have yet to register you will only receive 15,000 bonus points. The Park Plaza promo is new and is still available for the 50,000 points.
Mr. Deals and I took advantage of this promotion on three different occasions this time, thus earning us 147,318. Our out of pocket cost, which would not have been spent otherwise was $255.47, which is pretty decent (although I know many of you were able to score some rooms for $60 or less, which is awesome!). I could have taken advantage of more check-ins and earned more points, but I looked at it realistically and decided there was no need. I also have a combined 107,455 points earned from the same promotion last December, so in total we have at least 5 free nights. Since I am only looking to use them at Radisson Blu properties primarily, I decided that this will give us 5 nights, which is perfect. Between the two promotions, this will average to less then $90/night! The best value will probably be using them in Paris, but I’ll probably take advantage in Turkey or Iceland.
So how well did you do? Where are you looking to use your points?
