Club Carlson, the Radisson / Park Inn / Park Plaza hotel group, has launched a very generous promotion for Spring.
Between 6th April and 28th June you will earn TRIPLE points on every stay. This means that you will earn 60 base points per US$1 you spend. Full details are here.
In addition, you will earn an additional 1,000 points for every stay booked through the Club Carlson app.
This promotion effectively gives you a 50%+ rebate on your room rate if you are Gold.
I generally say on HFP that I value Club Carlson points at £5 per 1,000. This value holds both at the top end (50,000 points for a five star in London) and the bottom end (9,000 points for a Park Inn in Harlow).
Let’s take a typical $150 room night. I’m not sure if Carlson adjusts for VAT or not – I am assuming they don’t for simplicity
$150 x 67 points (as a Gold member) + 1000 point app booking bonus would be 11,000 points earned. At £5 per 1,000 that would be worth £55 of free night against a £100 room bill.
This is an excellent result for me as I have two nights at a Radisson Blu in Stockholm in early May!
If you don’t want the points for free nights, this is also a decent deal for earning Avios points or other airline miles. Club Carlson points transfer to Avios at a 10:1 ratio in chunks of 2,000. In my example above, you would have earned 1,100 Avios points for your $150 room night.
You MUST register in advance in order to earn triple points via the link on this page. I would be surprised if another hotel promotion as generous as this comes along for the current quarter.
