New members who enroll in Club Carlson can receive a sign-up bonus of 4,500 Gold Points through the following link. Just be sure that the promo code ERWD2012 appears in the appropriate box.

 

The sign-up page with the 4,500-point bonus. Make sure the promo code appears in the box.

Per the terms and conditions, this offer is for new members of Club Carlson without a previous account, and is limited to 4,500 Gold Points per person. Members must enroll by May 31, 2012. The bonus points will be deposited in the new account within 6-8 weeks of enrollment.

Club Carlson is the rewards program of Carlson Rezidor Hotels with brands like Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inns and Suites by Carlson, Park Inn by Radisson and more—over 1,000 properties in total. Club Carlson members get free internet at Radisson hotels worldwide and Carlson hotels in North America, and there are no blackout dates for award nights on standard rooms.

Free nights start at 9,000 points for Club Carlson’s Category 1 properties, which are mostly Park Inns and Country Inns and Suites with a couple Radissons thrown in. Category 2 hotels require 15,000 points, Category 3 require 28,000 points, Category 4 hotels require 38,000 points, Category 5 hotels require 44,0000 points and Category 6 hotels (where you’ll find some of those fancy European Radisson Blus) require 50,000 points for a free night redemption. They also have a Points & Cash option starting at 5,000 points plus a varying amount of cash that depends on the booking.

Free nights start at 9,000 Gold Points.

To give you another context, Club Carlson members earn 20 Gold Points per US dollar spent on eligible hotel nights as well as meals and beverages charged to the room. So 4,500 points would be the equivalent of spending $225 at a hotel. To purchase 4,500 Gold Points outright from Club Carlson would just cost $31.50, though, since they cost 0.7 cents apiece. That doesn’t sound so impressive, but hey they’re free and it takes 30 seconds to sign up. And if you were thinking of joining Club Carlson anyway, this is a good way to score a few extra points in the meantime.

Canadians don’t deserve these big bonuses because they have less disposable income after they pay all those taxes, eh!

You’ve missed the point here, which is that airline transfers start at 2k so you can get 500 miles in 20 odd programmes via this route.

Can you transfer these points to miles? I never miss an opportunity for free points…

There are 2 Daily Getaway deals for Club Carlson this Thursday (5/10).

Paul May 5, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Has anybody actually tried signing up? I’ve used the link from 3 different blogs on two different browsers. I always get this message “The website was unable to complete your task. Please try again.” Does this mean it is targeted?

Has anybody else gotten the same response?

Dbennett May 5, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I signed up with no error message but it says you have to join e-rewards. I haven’t gotten the email about e-rewards yet and wonder if I will get in on the deal since I’m already a e-rewards member earning Delta miles.

Huh! What the heck are you talking about. I am lost????

Link for the 4500 does not seem to work

Kim Allen May 11, 2012 at 12:49 am

What is the exchange rate for Carlson points to airlines? Can’t find it anywhere, but based upon the below, it seems like 4 to 1? Also, 4500 deal is said to be dead.

promo code does not work

Jared May 13, 2012 at 2:23 am

“Promotional code expired”. Any ideas or updates?

R-info May 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm

I just tried this and it says the code has expired :(

I am trying to book a hotel at LAX airport and there is no Club Carlson site that allows me to plug in location and dates and tell me what is available. Why?

Web sites give me a history of the company and a list of hotels under Club Carlson jurisdication but not a controlling oversite reservation ofering.

I will try Marriott because they do have a site.
