Club Carlson is running a 24-hour Cyber Monday promotion where you can purchase up to 10,000 points with a 100% promotion. While the bonus is awesome, you are capped at only being able to purchase a limited amount. If you go all in, you will be able to purchase 20,000 points for $70. This is one of the best purchase points promotion from Club Carlson we’ve seen yet. Remember though, you can only purchase 40,000 points per calendar year, so if you’ve already met this amount during this past summer’s 75% bonus offer, you will not be able to take advantage. However, if someone else in your household has a Club Carlson account you can purchase the points under their name and later on merge accounts. Club Carlson is typically pretty good with merging accounts with members of the same household.
So what can 20,000 points get you and is it worth it? While 20,000 points alone will not get you a top tier hotel, you’d be surprised by the number of hotels you can actually stay at within this category. However, typically these hotels won’t be that expensive to begin with. So if you know of a particular upcoming stay I suggest doing out the math to see if purchasing points is worthwhile. However, if you have the Club Carlson credit card, with every stay booked on points your last night is free. So if you have a two night stay, you use points for the first night and then your second night is free – no strings attached! So this means you can really get a two night stay for only $70. Pretty good in my opinion!
Is this promotion worth it? It really depends. As I mentioned above, do the math to see if purchasing points is cheaper than paying for the room outright. If you are into manufactured spend, then there are definitely ways to earn 20,000 points for less than $70. However, for those that are not into buying and liquidating gift cards and have the Club Carlson credit card this can definitely be a great offer to take advantage of.
