Last year Club Carlson released their “Big Night Giveaway” where you could earn 50,000 Club Carson points after one stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blu property. In my opinion this was a complete no-brainer and I knocked out my stay at the Radisson LAX for only $79, and received 50K points less than a week after my stay. This time around the promotion is exactly the same, except Club Carlson has included two additional brands in their promotion. Now you can register and earn 44K points for staying one night at the Country Inn & Suites, and 44K for staying one night at the Park Inn (this promotion is not active until May 22).
Each promotion appears to be independent from the standpoint that you can earn all three bonuses, but you must register for them separately. If you complete all 3 bonuses, you are looking at a healthy 138K points! The registration links are below:
Radisson (Limited to the first 100K to register)
Country Inn & Suites (Limited to the first 35K to register)
Park Inn (Limited to the first 20K to register)
You must have a Club Carlson account before you register. Click here to register and use code ERWD2012 to get an additional 4,500 points for signing up!
Keep in mind that you must complete your stays by July 15, 2012.
Finally, when you actually book your stay, FrequentMiler has a great write up on how you can earn 10% cashback by linking through TopCashback. If you do want to sign up for TopCashback please use my referral link here.
On the redemption side, I value Club Carlson points at about 0.6 cents per point. Therefore the 50K for the Radisson promotion is worth $300. Not bad considering that I paid $79 on a pre-paid rate for my stay in December. After browsing the list of Club Carlson properties, there are some great properties like the Radisson Blu Resort Marina & Spa in St. Martin for 50K points. The lowest rate I found was over $300 per night!
