Today’s Daily Getaway promotion (Day  8) is selling Club Carlson points at a significant discount.

50,000 Club Carlson Points

100,000 Club Carlson Points

In my opinion this is a great deal, however, with the limited number available will be nearly impossible to get. With this sale, the 50,000 point is selling the points at $0.0039/point (or $0.0035/point with Amex card) and the 100,000 point is selling the points at $0.00385/point (or $0.00347/point). While this is better than the “Flash Sales” Club Carlson is running all week, it is not a significant difference. Through the Flash Sales, you can get points at $0.004/point so with a 50,000 point purchase this Daily Getaway deal is only saving you $6 (or $25 with Amex card). So if you are not able to grab one of these Daily Getaways, know that you still have the option for an almost similar deal every day this week.

Keep in mind that you can also get Club Carlson points for even cheaper by purchasing Vanilla Reload cards for Amex BlueBird usage. With two of the Club Carlson credit cards you get 5 points per dollar, so if you purchase $5,000 reloads a month that will give you 25,000 points for $39.50. This means after two months you’ll end up with the same 50,000 points you can purchase from the Daily Getaways site for only $79. While this is significantly cheaper, here are three things to keep in mind:

  • You must have a Club Carlson credit card, and
  • You must be willing/able to purchase and use $5,000 a month of vanilla reloads. You can check out this prior post on the best card to use for vanilla reload purchases to see how the Club Carlson card compares to others
  • There is an opportunity cost as you aren’t using another card to purchase the vanilla reloads, so with a 2% cash back card for example, while you’ll spend $79 in fees, you can get points enough $200 worth of points for a net profit of $121. So definitely take that into consideration.

This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TODAY Wednesday June 19th. Availability is extremely limited with so if you are interested make sure to act fast. This deal will go within seconds, mark my word. I suggest getting on the computer a few minutes beforehand and continuously clicking the refresh button so you can make the purchase immediately. Also remember, like all other Daily Getaway promotions, you’ll receive 10% off the purchase price if you use any American Express credit card.

  1. Was able to grab one of the 50,000 point packages at about 1:04PM ET. Had 2 computers going (one for each of the 2 promos) refreshing about once every 5-10 seconds and it finally paid off.

  2. Got two 100,000 point packages. At first showed unavailable but kept refreshing (for a minute or two) and ended up getting the two packages.

  3. I got two of the 50,000 point packages, thanks for the reminder, 100000 point packages were pending right away and unavailable.

  4. Grabbed one of the 50,000 packages too. Tried hard to get the 100,000 one, but couldn’t nab it. At $176 – I’m sure this will pay off. Some Radisson Blu’s in Europe are well over $300.

  5. I was willing to buy 50,000 on the expectation of using the points with my existing balance, but I’m very skeptical about buying Carlson points with no expectation of quick usage. While RIGHT NOW it is a major good deal to use these points for Radisson hotels in Europe, as we all know it is just this kind of usage that seems to get turned off every time the companies “Enhance” the program, and I’ve been burned by Carlson in the past (Goldpoints was a great program until they devalued the utility of the points about 8 years ago and left us all with no value and no notice…..) Carlson itself is the prime example of “buyer beware”, so I’m not grieving for missing this.

  6. Well if you have the Club Carlson VISA, 50k points will get you 2 free nights at any Carlson hotel in the world. As long as they don’t take that benefit away, a slight devaluation would still make it an excellent deal as that currently works out to about $87 US per night.
