Unlike some first-quarter hotel promotions, Carlson's "Country Means Business" offer is limited to stays at a single brand during a period of just six weeks.
Still, it's worth a look.
Between January 2 and February 17, members of the goldpoints plus program can earn a one-time 10,000-point bonus for staying one or more nights, Sunday through Thursday, at a Country Inns & Suites hotel.
A three-day advance booking is required.
Deal or No Deal
While the reward is notably generous, the promotion period is short and the offer is limited to Carlson's approximately 500 Country Inns & Suites properties—about half of Carlson's network, which also includes Regent, Radisson, Radisson Blu, Radisson Edwardian, Park Plaza, and Park Inn hotels.
Quibbles aside, 10,000 bonus points for a single night is an uncommonly rich offer.
