With almost 1,400 hotels in operation or under development, the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group isn’t the largest of the hotel chains. But with six brands in more than 100 countries, it’s big enough to accommodate the needs of most travelers. That makes its Club Carlson loyalty program a contender.
Between January 18 and March 31, Club Carlson members can earn a one-time 5,000-point bonus for completing stays at any two of Carlson’s six hotel brands, including Radisson Blu, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn, Country Inns & Suites, and Quorvus Collection.
Registration is required.
This offer is combinable with Carlson’s current targeted offers, also in effect through March 31: 10,000 bonus points for two stays or 20,000 for three stays, for non-elites; and 20,000 bonus points after seven nights for elites. Again, these are targeted: Check your Carlson emails to see if you’re a candidate.
Deal or No Deal
Club Carlson members normally earn 20 points per $1 spent. Assuming a hypothetical stay of one $150 night, you’d earn 3,000 bonus points, and 6,000 points for two one-nighters at two different brands. In that scenario, a 5,000-point bonus amounts to somewhat less than double points. Meh.
If, on the other hand, you’ve been targeted for one of the other Carlson promotions, adding in that extra 5,000 points makes for a substantial total bonus for staying at two different brands.
