Club Carlson, the loyalty program of brands including Radisson, Radisson Blu and Park Inn, is running a few different promotions right now that make it possible to rack up thousands of points and miles.
7,500 Bonus American AAdvantage Miles
Now through December 15, 2014, when you book and complete two eligible stays at Radisson hotels, you can earn 7,500 bonus American AAdvantage miles. You must register here by October 15.
An eligible stay consists of one or more consecutive nights at a participating property (all Radisson hotels are participating) at a rate eligible to earn Gold Points (so no award stays). You can earn the bonus once per AAdvantage account.
The good news here is that you don’t have to choose to earn miles instead of points on your stay, so you can earn any Gold Points you normally would plus the bonus points for the weekday promo I’ll outline below plus the miles.
7,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles
If you’re a Star Alliance flyer, you might instead opt to participate in Club Carlson’s promo with Aeroplan where, when you book and complete two Radisson stays by December 15, you can earn 7,500 Aeroplan miles. Registration is open through December 14.
Promo details are here, but they are pretty much identical to those of the AAdvantage promo. Again, only one bonus per Aeroplan account, and this offer should be stackable with Carlson’s other points (not airline) promos.
Triple Gold Points on Weekday Stays
For stays now through November 30, 2014, when you use the promo code BIZTIME3 at time of booking, you can earn triple Gold Points on Club Carlson stays.
Check-in must be Sunday-Thursday night, and check-out Monday-Friday night in order to qualify. That means instead of the base 20 points per dollar you earn, you will be getting 60 points per dollar. Plus, if you have the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature, you have Gold status for an extra 7 points per dollar plus 10 points per dollar if you use your card to pay for your stay for a whopping total potential of 77 Gold Points per dollar!
Before you go booking stays all over the place, only properties in certain countries including the US and Mexico, but none in Europe, for example. You can find all the promo details here, but as I mentioned, this should be stackable with either of the mileage promos above, and the app-booking promo below.
3,000 Gold Points For App Bookings
Club Carlson is also offering a promo where you can earn 3,000 bonus points just by booking and completing a stay through the Club Carlson promo app now through November 16, 2014.
Promo details are here, but in short, you must be an existing Club Carlson member and book and pay in full for a Gold Points-earning stay (no award nights and no Points + Cash stays) completed by November 16. You can earn multiple bonuses through the promo period. The app is available for both IOS and Android. With great transfer partners like United and Hyatt, 2x points on travel & dining and a 50,000 point sign up bonus, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great card for those looking to get into the points and miles game.
