In honor of Radisson’s 50th anniversary, the chain has been giving away one free night at any Radisson Hotel once a day for 50 days in its “50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Rooms” campaign – and today, I’m giving away that free room right here on The Points Guy.

Except, it’s not just one free night in any Radisson or Radisson Blu Hotel in North America – I was also offered three additional free nights give away to my readers as well!  So I am giving away a total of four individual free night vouchers to four lucky TPG readers.

Each voucher is valid for a free night in a standard room at double occupancy in the North American Radisson Blu or Radisson of your choice. The vouchers will expire one year after their issue date and the full terms will be located on the vouchers themselves.

To find out more about the contest you can “like” Radisson’s Facebook page, where you can also learn fun facts like how Carlson acquired its first Radisson hotel in downtown Minneapolis in 1962 and has now grown to over 400 properties globally with plans for a total of 600 by 2015.

Since my site is all about loyalty programs, I want you to tell me something you like about Club Carlson – whether it’s a specific redemption, an aspect of the overall program, something about their new line of credit cards, or any lesser known benefits that people might not be aware of that you really like. That way, we can all learn something new from each other.

There are four different ways you can enter, and you can enter once via each method. All you need to do is tell me what you like about the Club Carlson program (even if it is just your favorite property and how many points it takes to redeem there).

1. Leave a comment on this post.

2. Twitter: Follow me on Twitter and send me a Tweet (remember to use .@thepointsguy so that everyone can see our conversation) with your entry and use hashtag #RadFreeNightTPG.

3. Facebook: Like my Facebook page and leave a comment on the wall.

4. Instagram: I love using Instagram to share my stories, photos and points insights, so be sure to follow me on it and share your own with insight with me. Just be sure you include @thepointsguy so I see your photo and message and use hashtag #RadFreeNightTPG..

You can enter now through 11:59pm ET on Wednesday, December 13, 2012, and I’ll pick winners at random to announce on Friday, December 15, 2012. Just be sure that when you comment, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram that there is a way the TPG team can get in touch with you to notify you that you have won.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, so enter now, and good luck!

  • Joel Giefer

    Great contest; great posts; would love to have one of these free nights!

  • Lisa W

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love that redemptions start at just 9K points, including a Raddison in Orlando! I also like the points and cash option.

  • Biggles209

    I started with Club Carlson because of their points promotions. I’ve now stayed at several airport properties, and I’m about to apply for the credit card. They’ve got me hooked!

  • FEV7

    I love the way Club Carlson gives you so many opportunities to get points and earn free nights. Their recent BOGO promotion together with the generous “Big Night” promotion earlier this year has allowed me to earn free nights, even though I’m not a frequent traveler. I really appreciate that.

  • Mike

    I love the selection of properties.

  • Celio Martins

    I loved the one night stay – 50K points promo this year! Lets hope they bring that back next year? BTW, do you think it might repeat? That promo used with the new US Bank Club Carlson, is just unbeatable.

  • Dan

    I love how generous they are! It seems like they’re really making an effort to pull in new customers and retain their old ones.

  • Jae K

    I just liked your Facebook. And I really appreciated your posting.
    I started getting Club Carson points and recently got Club Carson credit card.

  • John Ruda

    I like that the Club Carlson loyalty program allows members to stay at the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago for 50,000 gold points.

  • Cjh236

    Not a club Carlson member, but maybe I should consider this…

  • Uri Gophna

    They are really making an effort to give good deals recently, so that people like myself can now afford a “Radisson” stay

  • Charlene Wang

    I like that their redemptions start at just 9000 points!

  • Uri Gophna

    They are really making an effort to give good deals recently, so that people like myself can now afford a “Radisson” stay

  • Pensguin68

    I love how generous they are with promotions and the great point earning options

  • gigi

    radisons’ good deals on rooms attract me attention !!

  • tringuyen82

    Mattress runs are super easy…

  • I Married A Travel Agent

    They are everywhere & good prices can often be found.

  • HT

    They’re all around the world

  • tom

    this is rad.

  • James

    You can transfer points between family accounts

  • Aleks

    I love that the redemptions start at as little as 9,000 points for decent properties and that their recent promotions have been well-run and have done a good job to entice me to stay at their properties.

  • Vitoellison

    Because my business travel doesn’t put me in Radisson properties enough to make Club Carlson my primary program, I love being able to use the points I do earn there to offset my CO2 emissions.

  • navin dargani

    I love getting 10 points per dollar on their US Bank Visa.

  • tomtom77

    Hope i win

  • JamesP

    I like being able to earn Club Carlson points inexpensively in the US (such as through Country Inn & Suites stays or through their megabonus promotions) then redeeming them for very nice hotels throughout Europe. Thanks for the contest!

  • Ladyjaneshopper

    4 free nights would be great!

  • Marion B.

    I love their megabonus promotions. I haven’t used my points abroad yet- but I hope to!

  • Louis


  • Louis

    Interesting… I’d love to try Rad out for free!

  • Sil

    love there big give away promotion

  • Espan

    Excellent reward price points. Easy transfers.

  • Sarah C

    I like the fact that Club Carlson has such a huge footprint. When searching for a hotel, I can pretty much find one in whatever country I’m looking to stay and it’s nice to be able to stick with the same chain when traveling around the world. Also, as a Silver Elite, I have seen the difference between when I was a non-status traveler but was treated well to when I stayed as a Silver Elite and received a room upgrade and even better treatment. Thanks for the contest, TPG!

  • Matthew Smith

    Thanks for sweetening the pot on the giveaway TPG. Wish Radisson had more Blu properties in the states.

  • Jmansour

    Love the low redemption levels

  • Raymond G.

    I love the style of their properties, the benefits of their new credit card, and the fact that award redemptions are so reachable…. starting at 9k points!

  • Meli

    Love the generous offer for new sign-ups on their new Visa card.

  • Hellis001

    i need a vacation and i can use 4 nights

  • Linda Bernstein

    Because I stayed one night at a country suites and a one night at a radison in portland, or ( on way there and back visiting my daughter in eugene ) and got enough points to stay overnight 2 free nights in london ( where i am going on an award ticket, en route to lisbon – also same award ticket, after staying overnight with my parents in nyc, yes, same award ticket, all starting and ending in pittsburgh, for only 40k miles ) ALL of which is possible because of what i have learned following your blog. So yes my trip is probably a gift all by itself, but getting another free night from you would be like a gold star on top of it all !!!

  • GeeEmm

    Club Carlson has *really* great promotions, contests and sweepstakes.

  • Darkhawkkg

    Second free night on awards with their credit card

  • Thomas4888

    Sign me up for the contest. Merci!

  • Jamie

    I’m so new to this that I have no wisdom to share on Carlson. But we usually stay at a Radison when visiting my sister in law.

  • steve miller

    pick me!

  • Cory Graham

    I’m currently working overseas in Afghanistan and could use a nice little getaway to take my lady when I return home!

  • Anne

    I’ve enjoyed club carlson’s promotions in the last couple of years.

  • Avishaister

    The 2 for 1 on award nights!

  • James K.

    I love how ridiculously generous they are with points.

  • Inna

    I love how they give you a points bonus for booking online

  • OldManPeabody

    I also like the low redemption options Club Carlson offers!

  • Lisa Hughes

    I like free internet at Radissons worldwide

  • Ari

    Awesome promotions and oppurtunities from club carlson

  • Ken

    I love their new “free award night” promotion with their credit cards.

  • Karim Sie

    75.000 points/night to redeem at Radisson Blu Ambassador Hotel, Paris Opera seems a lot but 4 free nights from TPG would be great.

  • Art

    I love the new credit card – just got it and it is a huge value mutiplier for Club Carlson points.

  • StevenRothberg

    Nice to rack up Club Carlson points while enjoying a Sleep Number bed.

  • Greg

    Club Carlson always offers great guest service even at moderately priced properties and their website is very user friendly including award bookings.

  • Ak9

    Park Plaza Bangkok Soi 18

  • Teja Pamganamamula

    Radisson Blu Amsterdam – Breakfast and Free Internet for Silver/Gold Members

  • mct

    Thanks TPG … keep up the great work

  • MSPpete

    I like that they are giving away points like CANDY!

  • Jason

    I like the fact that there are Radissons all over locations throughout Africa, Eastern Europe, Middle East, etc that don’t have other chain hotels…

  • Rus

    I like their new credit card

  • Marlene

    I like Club Carlson for things like the buy one, get one night free that I recently took advantage of. It’s a great program, and the hotels are always top notch!

  • Rick

    The Radisson Blu in Lucerne Switzerland. What a gorgeous view.

  • Jason

    Thanks for the great deals over the years

  • Dan Daly, CSCS

    Radisson has great gyms

  • bmp412

    I like the low-redemption levels for awards.

  • Stils

    I like that Club Carlson keeps getting out here with promotions like these. Definitely keeps me interested in their brand!

  • Grant

    The club Carlson hotels are great ways to earn free nights.

  • LAM

    I love the fact they do promotions like stay one night one night free. I just did my one night stay (actually just checked in/out) and I will get a free night I hope to use in NYC in March. The room would be over $300.00 or 50,000 points which I probably would not pay. I am going to just do a quick overnight and see a show.

  • BigTex

    I love that the staff at the Radisson Blu Style in Vienna were so accommodating to our 15-month old daughter. Confirmed upgrade for only 20k points, fabulous service, and even breakfast to go for our early return flight home!

  • Jamison

    Club Carlson makes it easy to status match

  • Keri

    My only Radisson experience so far is the Crystal City property. Would love an excuse to try some more exciting locations!

  • Michael

    I like Radisson/Club Carlson because they status matched my PC status to gold and got us an upgrade to a suite!

  • Jen

    New credit card offers make loyalty to Club Carlson more appealing.

  • Chirag

    love the Club Carlson program

  • Ron

    I think it’s a good program. Easy to earn points, with good promotions, and paid and award stays are available in a broad range of properties which can satisfy persons with basic needs and desires as well as those who want more luxury.

  • Eric

    This would be a wonderful early Christmas present!

  • Maya

    I can take my kids to Disney for 9k pts per night! This is cheaper than the park admission, lol!

  • Patrick

    I like the 85,000 point sign up bonus on the Radisson/Club Carlson credit card.

  • Farscapeone

    600 new properties added to the already 400 would rival Hilton. Wonder where most of the new properties are going to be added. Hyatt is adding almost exclusively in China and India which does not fit my travel plans in the near future.

  • Anthony

    Would love to stay at Chicago Radisson Blu.

  • Bobby312345

    I can always use another free night.

  • Kpspecial

    I sent customer service an e-mail through their website late yesterday about missing stay and they responded within 5 minutes!awesome.

  • The Deal Mommy

    @ClubCarlson is the most responsive of the twitter hotel loyalty programs. Dana is simply amazing! I had a problem with an Avis rental that had Club Carlson bonus points and she took care of it, even the Avis created the issue.


    The hotels aren’t as fancy as say some SPG/Hyatt joints, but Club Carlson hotels are solid, and i find them to be situated fairly well to the areas i normally travel.

    let’s not forget it’s easier to earn free nights with this chain. i do have a stay coming up, and wouldn’t mind a free night ^^ thx for considering it.

  • Dbagwell

    I love the fact that you don’t have to be elite to get free internet service in Club Carlson hotels.

  • Drsp

    I love cash and points redemptions

  • Eurolauras

    I like the 2 for 1 on award nights and the promos they run.
    Thank you for the giveaway! My twitter name is lbombstyle.

  • Joanna

    I love the new credit card offers- great points bonus and can accumulate a lot of points!

  • Phil

    I like their 50,000 point promotions. There is nothing like staying in an $800 a night, knowing you only paid about $80 to get the points that made it possible.

  • Aeroman380

    I like Radisson’s promotions. They are really trying to impress with generous points and make me realize how global they are

  • Ajitgeorge74

    What I like: I really like that they have a new credit card! I’ve been wanting to accumulate points faster for free nights, and now it’ll help! And I love that the Premiere comes with 85,000 bonus points!

  • jake

    huge bonuses!

  • Robert P

    The most rad thing about Club Carlson is the arbitrage of earning points in US (for low cost) and using them overseas (for high value rewards).

  • Gee K.

    You can easily transfer/combine Club Carlson points to another person without a fee by calling 888-288-8889. All you need is the acct # and name.

  • Stubtify

    Ditto on the new CC offer–The final night free on award travel is an industry crushing offer!

  • ADAM

    the credit cards give a lot of bonus points. according to frequent flyer 70 points per dollar?? unbelievable.

  • Darin

    The property selection is solid and love the breakfasts!

  • steve

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • Easton

    The 2×1 redemptions for the new CC are ridiculously useful. I plan on several trips that will be feasible entirely because of that benefit.

  • BOShappyflyer

    I like how Radisson has been actively marketing their brand. Honestly, I know little or nothing about the Radisson brand, and now I’m giving it a second look with its recent promotion and new credit card offering.

  • Joe O

    Would love to win

  • DF

    Their new card will be part of my applications in January.

  • Nick

    The thing I like about Club Carlson is the fact that I was able to turn a couple of paid nights into a week’s stay right by Disney via their promotion last May.

  • Raj Pre 453

    Looking forward to win this

  • shruti

    I can use it for my incoming trip to Aruba

  • Francisco

    50k to st martin this weekend, can’t wait. thanks

  • MM

    I would like to enter this contest.

  • Sal

    I love their “stay 1 night get 50k points” promotions!

  • Schick Shannon

    I like the 2 for 1 promo I had not really thought of the brand until the posting about the new card.

  • JJ

    I like Club Carlson’s new credit card and the “last night free” benefit.

  • Josiah Lamz

    The Radisson in the San Diego Gaslamp District has great charm… and the beds are amazingly comfortable!

  • Silvia

    I like that they have many hotels near me that are cheap and so I can do a mattress run.

  • snakedoc1

    The thing I like about Club Carlson is the way their offers are like big surprises. I knew little about Club Carlson until they surprised me with the summer promos. I stayed at different Club Carlson properties, including one in the Ukraine. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the property was and also how easy it was to get a status match ……. from HiltonHHonors. Also got early and very late check-in and out. The latest surprise is the Club Carlson visa offer. I will apply this week…… with fingers crossed. I have 10 inquiries in 2 years. Hope that ……. US Bank surprises me and approves me for the visa card.

  • Joseph M

    Radisson Blu Chicago is the way to go!

  • Erny

    Yay for free hotel nights

  • Pointasaurus

    THe new credit card program

    Hope I am the lucky winner

  • Kathy K

    So impressed with radissons cust service and PR- they are great

  • Tyj303

    You should mention how 50,000 isn’t the point maximum anymore. Was looking at a night in Amsterdam next Sept and its 75,000

  • ketan

    I really like that you can combine points between account.

  • Sweetz_21_83

    I love their promos to earn free nights but yours is even better!

  • Greg

    Their stay 1 get 1 promotion that was run recently was a great bonus. Also, it was super easy to claim the bonus (didn’t see any blackout dates)

  • Matt Karolian

    Cool promo

  • phoenixbe

    I like the fact that you don’t have to be elite to get free internet service in Club Carlson hotels.

  • Sajer Guy

    Love the credit card perk of a free night on end of a points redemption.

  • Shrink The Globe

    The Park Plaza Soi 18 is a great value being a cat 2 hotel (15k pts). I was once upgraded to a suite by being gold.

  • Charlotte (TYR)

    Customer Service. Stayed at a few Country Inn (never had before the promo, so very successful promo) while visiting family in smaller towns. Very clean with comfortable beds and no charges to park. Got a call from the last visit that I had left my sweater in the room and would I like to come by and pick it up or have it mailed to me.

  • dcacoaster

    Had a great stay at the chic Radisson Blu Le Metropolitan in Paris for 50k gold points per night.

  • CharlesZ

    Like the new credit card; it doubles my points :)

  • Steve

    I like the location of the Radisson in Hamburg DE which is connected to the Congress Center. I also like that their credit card is not from Chase

  • Mike

    Love that the Radisson is an affordable but quality hotel chain.

  • Greendivinity

    I love the program because it seems it’s easier to rack up the points especially if you have their Visa Signature card, which I applied for last night.

  • Holly C.

    I like thaqt my husband and I can combine our points!

  • Frank Hurdle

    My wife and I are both members and take advantage of their promotions. It’s easy to combine our points.

  • Holly C.

    follow you on facebook (Holly Chernoff)

  • gorayomd

    When you redeem Gold Points for 2 or more consecutive Award Nights, your last night is free!

  • Kristy McCoy

    With Club Carlson, it’s super easy to redeem points & earn lots of bonus points. This summer we got so many bonus points with the buy 1 get 1 promo. Love their hotels too!

  • Aarif

    Probably the two big night promotions they’ve done.

  • Terence

    Club Carlson is great. tremendous and innovative promotions, great hotel service, points post within a few days like clockwork !

  • Geoward

    I love the Radisson Aruba. I am saving up the 50,000 points per night you need to stay there so I can go back.

  • Rebecca D.

    I like the ability to combine points!

  • Michelle

    Although I like to believe that free internet is a basic human right and it irritates me to no end that I would actually have to pay for it in a public place, with the Club Carlson Rewards program you’re guaranteed free internet in all of their North America hotels, which is pretty sweet and gives me one less thing to moan about.

  • Jeff Carroll

    I like the ability to email and get status matching easily based on my Hyatt Platinum status.

  • TravelBloggerBuzz

    Some Country Inns suites have a jacuzzi right next to the bed. Much better than a bath tub in the middle of a W room, lol

  • Ken

    Radisson gives breakfast coupons to Gold status guests if asked.

  • Mifuchs

    Radisson Blue Ambassador in Paris Opera. Excellent location. Easy access to CDG via Rossi Bus and easy access to all of Paris. Just 50,000 points per night

  • Lvchip

    The Radisson stay once get 50k or 44k points was one of the best promotions of the year.

  • Andrew

    I like that you can find Radison properties in small markets that don’t have SPG or Hyatt properties.

  • Allison R

    The ability to combine points from my account with my husbands account is a big plus

  • kclasv

    The outstanding promotions that they offer!!

  • ASar

    I like the fact that it is pretty easy to get status in radisson hotels

  • Colleen

    Its so easy to earn and redeem points!!!!

  • Ben

    Club Carlson has always been great with me for upgrades as a Gold Elite member, and have, at the properties I’ve stayed at, treated their elites very well!

  • Malorie S.

    This year I stocked up on Club Carlson points thanks to the stay one, get one promotions. Next year I plan to cash in for a week in Paris! Awesome promos for little money spent upfront.

  • Sdg13

    I like the next Club Carlson credit card perks

  • Viketh

    Rad Blu Chicago at 50K would be great!

  • Reeoni

    I like the high value promotions like “Big Night Out” – I got 50k points for a one night’s stay earlier this year.

  • Marc

    I love the Club Carlson Visa Card! The 2 for 1 stay on points redemptions is going to be amazing! I can’t wait to use it.

  • Neet N

    I love Club Carlson! This year I participated in all Club Carlson promotions including the 50K points ones held earlier and the earn a free night. I used the points earned to take my mother and father to see Europe as their 40th year anniversary, it was their first time in Europe. We stayed in Radisson St Helens and Radisson Blu in Dublin, Ireland. We then redeemed their 50% off hotel award stays in Europe to spend nights in Radisson Blu in Sweden and other places in Europe. As a gold member now with even corporate account set up, I find them the new hotel chain that’s overtaking competition with their loyalty promotions. I would absolutely love to use a Free night to use it to see my new baby niece in NY, who just came in my life. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Miro Hacek

    Top notch promotions that they always seem to find…

  • Zrb253

  • Varun Mehta

    I like the generous summer promos. And now with the new credit card you can get twice the value of those points.

  • David Craigo

    I enjoy the rooms starting at 9k points and the promotions that are always being run. The new card ought to be more helpful to achieve these goals too.

  • jenny

    i like club carlson for a lot of reasons but they do seem to put a lot of thought into the styling of the club. as opposed to most rewards cards, they frame it more as a cool elite club instead of just money saving.

  • Vicky

    This is a new program on my radar due to the introduction of the credit card.

  • Kenny

    i like the big night giveaway

  • Terry

    It is pretty easy to accumulate a load of Club Carlson points!

    I love the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card! You only need 9000 pts to redeem a free night in Orlando. The new credit card perks will make it even sweeter!

    I like some hotels like Radisson Orlando for 9k points per night. A great Club Carlson points redemption deal for Orlando!

  • Tiffany Winner
  • tommyx

    any radisson in paris is fine with me!

  • Socalgecko

    They have phenomenal opportunities to earn extra points. I hope they keep it up.

  • Tiffany Winner
  • Tiffany Winner
  • Ryan H

    I like their awesome promos.

  • Jane Dwyer

    Loved using the 50 K promo to stay at the Radisson Blu Champs Élysées. Best promo ever!

  • Chris

    The 50k promos have been superb for redemptions in Europe.

  • Marko Jung

    First of all: I love this blog. My favourite Radisson is the EU Hotel in Brussels. It is conveniently located to the EU quarter and the city centre and they have excellent promos, affordable week-end rates and first class service.

  • inferno10

    Hope I can try out a Radisson Blu!

  • Colin

    Their 4th quarter promo is pretty great!

  • Thomas

    Would love to use these in Chicago for a points seminar!!

  • Kathy

    Haven’t olnystayed at a marriot once and loved it

  • Lenny L

    I love their cheap redemption starting at 9000 points. Last December I redeemed 5 free nights at Talinn, Estonia by using their 9000 point rebate per redemption night promo. :)

  • Lina

    I’ve never heard of this program…will have to take a look.

  • Jane

    Learned about them through the mattress run this summer – liked them all except Park Inn. Using the points earned to stay at a Radisson in Sydney :)

  • Cummingsdesign

    Love the Radisson Blu hotels in Europe

  • Don

    Club Carlson comes in very handy when travelling to the DC Metro area, because there are many low redemption Country Inn & Suites in the Southern Maryland/Northern VA area. I had a nice stay at Radisson Largo, MD, Country Inn and Suites in Annapolis, and Doswell, VA, and the Radisson in Baltimore right by Johns Hopkins

  • Rob

    Hopefully they continue to invest in their properties in 2013!!

  • George Smart

    Rad Blu is my favorite chain. They are so much better than regular Rad. In fact, I’m taking 25 people in my nonprofit to Chicago Aqua Radisson soon and would dearly love to win the free rooms!

  • Yrosanel9

    I love the Radisson Blu and want to visit it again!

  • Henkelri

    I just stayed at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbuilt in London. Love how they have worldwide locations in great spots, but I think I need to learn more about their program. Gasp – I didn’t earn points for my last stay. Thanks for making us aware!!

  • William Chang

    Great member benefits!

  • gpks00

    I also really like their promos.

  • SKT

    One easy way to get 2000 Club Carlson points, IF your hotel stay was not perfect ;-) – fill out the survey they send you after your stay. If you leave any below average rating or comment, your account will be credited 2000 additional points. (I don’t know if elite status matters, mine is Silver)

  • road2elysium

    Radisson’s new credit card offerings give 1 night free on any 2+ night reservation!

  • Stephan

    Have been to their hotels in Europe. Would be interesting to compare.

  • Abyssian

    Club Carlson runs some awesome promotions with their 1 FOR 1 Stay One Night, Get One Night deals. I love taking advantage of them!

    I like their low entry level redemption requirements.

  • Deanna R.

    The promotions are great. Can’t beat the buy 1 get 1!

  • Oscar

    Most people don´t know this, and I don´t know if it also applies to properties in the U.S, but in Europe, the Radisson Hotels´ Restaurants give you a 20% discount for being a Club Carlson member. You just have to show your card or even just give your number (or anyone else´s for that matter) and done… ;-)

    Would like to try Radisson for once.

    The Radisson breakfast buffet at Orlando, International Drive is “rad!”

  • Kent

    The Bonus Award Night on redemption is a nice perk on the CC CC.

  • Devonp

    I really like the deal at Radisson Orlando International hotel. Its hard to beat at only 9K points.

  • Acker

    I love their new cc. A year ago I’d say you where crazy to say I’d become a regular at Club Carlson properties. Fast forward a year and I’ve stayed in a bunch of their European hotels.

  • Jason

    I love the fact the the Club Carlson card gives you a free night for each booking

  • Elizabeth S.

    I am starting to like the Club Carlson program.

    Not a quantifiable benefit, but I’ve enjoyed their broader varity than typical chains interiors. Radisson Blu in Zurich especially.

  • Crying Baby On Board

    Yes, Club Carlson has generous promotions….but another sweet thing is …that unlike some other programs, you can transfer points from one account to another for free!

    Enjoyed my Radisson Blu stay in Paris and my stay in Lima!

    I like the availability for awards in Europe.

  • Jackie

    I love how many points we’ve eared through club Carlson promotions over the past year, and now I’m excited about the new credit card benefit which gives you the last night free on redemption reservations. That means I can get double the value of the points I’ve already waned on 2 night stays when I redeem points. Amazing!

  • Paul W

    Free internet is a great perk for Club Carlson members

  • Ryan

    I like redemptions London and the awesome Club Carlson Promos for staying at each brand totaling nearly 150K points. Also I’m definitely signing up for their new US Bank CC in a month or so.

  • MichaelT

    I like that Club Carlson has great promos and that you can use the new US Bank card to essentially double the value of those promo points.

  • MrAOK

    I like the promotions, specifically the promo they did this year offering points worth a free night with a single stay

  • DKNY

    Points Poem for consideration:

    If I had a dime for e’ery time I wish thine eyes set on mine
    We’d sip wine and dine fine
    At Radisson Blu, with lovely shampoo, one night not two
    Is all we’d need, to feel freed, to lounge fancied
    Thanks all to luck and chance
    We’ll dance this Points Guy dance
    Radisson so enchants, better yet enhance
    Our minds, aches, and smiles
    For it’s been a while since traveling a mile
    One hopes this poem is soon worthwhile.

  • sandnut

    Love their clever promos which get them business and yet generously reward the customer.

  • Volker

    Yesterday was my first Radisson experience. I stayed at the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore. I’m shocked. I heard so much good things. The Hotel had its own charm, but I couldn’t see any maintenance like smaller fixes. The fan was falling apart, mold in the bathroom, closet door broken… But the worst was: the room seem not to be cleaned for a long time. The night stand clock in the room was total dusty and we didn’t had the feeling like the floor was vacuumed for a long time.
    I think I will give Radisson one more chance. But not in Baltimore!

  • riverchica

    I love the dolphins by the patio at the Radisson Blu Capetown and how easy it is to earn points to stay there!

  • daPang

    Am I the only one being honest here? I never stayed in Radisson, so I don’t know. And hopefully with this promotion I will find out.

  • Tom

    With new Credit card…Bonus Award Night – When you redeem Gold Points for 2 or more consecutive Award Nights, your last night is free.3 Exclusively for cardmembers! Also all the great points promotions through out the year

  • Liz Chesebrough

    I’m planning a surprise trip, winning would help with that!

  • Rob N.

    Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature card gives 50,000 gold points with first purchase. Depending on hotel, that can be enough for two free nights . . . or even FIVE nights with a little cash thrown in. This is a great, great deal. One little card can add an inexpensive vacation to your life!

  • Debra

    I love that a points and cash booking counts as a qualifying night on many of their promos. Makes collecting big night giveaways really affordable.

  • rodonn

    I love their hotels near Disney Land, which don’t cost too many points to stay at.

    I actually like two things about Club Carlson over some of the other loyalty programs, (1) the ability to status match to Gold without having to do a challenge and (2) the flexibility to transfer Club Carlson points to other members for free!

    The name of your promotion really got my attention! My name is Rad!!! Ha! Ha! lol! Aside from the low redemption rates offered by Club Carlson as expressed by many of your readers, what I also like most about Club Carlson is the generous points promotions they have had in the last several years…ALL of which I participated thanks to THE POINTS GUY emails I receive…daily!! Thank you!

  • Joseph Gallaher

    Finny thing I just read in a book that I currently have on my night stand was talking about the humor behind a persons thought process who enters a drawing, already knowing there are (in this case) 565 entries ahead of them… whelp, better chances than being struck my lighting!

  • Dave F

    I like the Buy One Get one promo with 50K points and I now love the new CC they offer
