I’m catching up with all the Q4 hotel promotions this week and was happy to discover I was still able to register successfully for the Radisson 1 for 1 promotion. And I took a look at the other Club Carlson promotions out there currently and summarize them here.
1. Radisson 1 for 1 – Stay One Night, Get One Night
The first 50,000 Club Carlson members to register (they haven’t hit the mark yet since I successfully registered today) will earn a free night at any Radisson or Radisson Blu in the U.S., Canada or Caribbean after staying one night at a Radisson or Radisson Blu (same geographic restrictions) by December 31, 2012. Registration is required by October 31 and the free night will be valid until December 31, 2013. Click on the graphic above for full details and to register.
2. Stay More Nights, Earn More Points
· 2,000 bonus points per night when you stay one to five nights
· 4,000 bonus points per night when you stay six to nine nights
· 6,000 bonus points per night when you stay 10 to 20 nights
It appears Radisson Blu properties are left off the promotion as it reads, “Valid at participating Radisson, Country Inn & Suites, Park Inn and Park Plaza hotels worldwide.” The promotion ends December 31, 2012 and the bonus points will be awarded in January 2013. Click on the graphic above to register and for full terms and conditions.
3. Free Night, Fall Offer – Country Inn & Suites
First, stay two or more consecutive nights at participating Country Inn & Suites on the Free Night Fall rate Sunday through Thursday by November 30, 2012. After your stay, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to register that stay for the free night certificate. Act on that email by December 22 and you’ll earn the free night cert valid from December 15, 2012 through February 15, 2013. A quick check of rates at the Ontario, Cal. Country Inn & Suites shows the “Free Night Fall” rate ($119 for the dates I checked) to be identical to the “Best Available Rate,” but not the non-refundable advance purchase rate ($83.30). Click the graphic above for full details and other restrictions.
4. Get Away Faster – Buy Gold Points, Get a 50% Bonus
Now through November 10, 2012, you’ll earn a 50% bonus on purchased (or gifted) Gold Points. A max of 40,000 Gold Points can be purchased per account annually at a rate of $7 per 1,000 points. So… if you purchase the max 40,000 for $280, you’ll get 60,000 points. And they can be redeemed at any Carlson Rezidor property. Free nights start at 9,000 points, but there are only a handful of those properties. At the next level (15,000 points), there are oodles of Country Inn & Suites around the country for which a max purchase would net 4 nights. Depending on the published rates, this has the potential to be a great deal. Click the graphic above for full terms and conditions.
And finally, Million Mile Secrets has a great post about how to easily transfer Club Carlson points from one account to another. I had no idea this could be done and it’s so simple.
