I just read on the Frequent Miler blog that massive changes are coming to the Club Carlson credit card. This is the first I’ve heard of it and am really hoping that it is a late April Fools joke. Ultimately, the potential changes is that the best feature of the card, the free night on every award reservation of 2+ nights is going away. This is single handily the best feature of any credit card out there. Ultimately, this is a buy one get one on all stays using your points. You can learn more about the benefits here.
They are saying that this feature will be replaced with a free night after you spend $10,000 on the card annually. This is a one time free night option per year. While this is typically a nice feature of a card and comparable to many other card benefits, this is by no means an even exchange.
I just reached out to my PR contact at Club Carlson to find out more about this possible change. In the linked blog post, a reader sent him his credit card statement which showed the change at the bottom of the statement. I have no yet received my latest statement to confirm this or not.
Anyone else notice a change in benefits on their credit card statement? My husband just applied for this card and no where was this change stated, so I am really hoping it is a bad joke. I also think they might have to do something for those that just applied for the card based on the terms stated when they applied.
I’ll let you know if I hear anything else.
