Club Carlson has followed Hilton, Marriott, Priority Club and Starwood in revealing their promotions for the first quarter. (Click on the links in the previous sentence to see what the competition is doing.)
Club Carlson is the loyalty scheme for Radisson, Park Plaza and Park Inn amongst other brands.
It has decided to go the same way as Hilton and launch a promotion which a) is easy to follow and b) kicks in from your first night. The latter is important, as the Marriott, Priority Club and Starwood promotions all require multiple stays or nights to trigger a bonus.
Very simply, you will earn triple Club Carlson points on every stay between January 8th and March 15th. You must check-out by March 15th, according to the rules, so be careful if booking a long stay near the deadline.
Triple points apply to both the room rate and all spending charged to your room.
You need to register by inputting your details at http://www.clubcarlson.com/triplepoints (now dead) – you will not get the bonus points otherwise.
This deal can be suprisingly generous. Even as a base level member with no status, you will be earning 60 points per $1 with this promotion. At the highest conversion level (100,000 points = 18,000 Avios) you would only need to spend $1,666 (so £1,000) excluding VAT to receive 18,000 Avios. If you redeeemed for hotel rooms, that same $1,666 ($1,000) of spend would get you 2 x 50,000 point rooms in their most expensive properties, worth £400+. That would be a 40% rebate on your spend.
