Does 60x Club Carlson Points Make You Swoon?

Club Carlson's Weekdays Triple Points Offer

I recently enjoyed a fabulous award stay at the Radisson Martinique on Broadway in New York City.

As a Club Carlson credit card holder, I was eligible for the stay one night, get one night free deal on award stays, so the cost of my two-night stay was 50,000 Club Carlson points.

I enjoyed the hotel so much that I am looking for ways to replenish my points account!

Stacking Club Carlson Promos

Club Carlson is always running a bunch of promo offers and special rates.  Each offer applies to a select list of hotels and you need to read the fine print to make sure you qualify.  Sometimes, it is possible to stack promos, so that your earn bonus points on several offers with the same reservation.

The tricky thing is that the special offer may not always be the best rate.

Club Carlson is currently running a 3,000 point bonus if you book your stay using their mobile app through November 16, 2014.  This is good for up to three bookings, for a total of potentially 9,000 points.

Club Carlson is also running a promo for 7,500 American Advantage points if you book two stays at participating Radisson Hotels.

You can combine these offers with the “Business Time Triple Points” offer to boost your points earnings.

Would you rather earn 3x times points (equivalent to 60x points for cardholders) or get 30 percent off your stay?

You really have to play around with the promo codes and look at all the rates options and offers to find the best deal.

Sometimes, the most advantageous rate of all may be the old, reliable AAA discount.

60x Gold Points on Weekday Stays

You can earn triple Club Carlson points when you stay at select Radisson Hotels and Country Inns & Suites on weekdays.

Radisson Martinique Has Their Own Promo Rates

If you are headed to New York City, keep in mind that the Radisson Martinique has their own promo codes:  FBOOK and TWT, not to mention the free breakfast via their app.  

If you find all these options confusing, so do I!  Your best bet is to check a variety of discounts and promo codes to find your best deal.  If you are able to plan ahead, you may find that the advance purchase rate offers significant savings.  Many Club Carlson hotels offer ‘business packages” that come with double points, or 10,000 extra point packages, which may be worth your while if you are trying to top off your account for your next awards stay.

New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City each have attractive Radisson hotels in central locations.  Given the price of lodging in big cities, the Club Carlson credit card and loyalty program can be a good deal.
