Time for another Thursday Giveaway contest! This week, I’m giving away two vouchers for one free night each good at any Radisson or Radisson Blu in North America from now through December 31, 2014.
How To Enter
You can enter my contest by tweeting me @ThePointsGuy with the hashtag #TPGFreeHotel and telling me which North American Radisson or Radisson Blu property or properties (hey, there are 2 certificates and you don’t have to use them at the same time) you would use the certificates at and why.
Just be sure to tweet by 5pm ET on Sunday July 28th and the winner will be selected at random and announced on Monday. Note that you won’t earn Gold Points for nights redeemed with a voucher.
Club Carlson Has Caught My Eye
I’ve been paying more and more attention lately to Club Carlson, the loyalty program of Radisson and Radisson Blu (as well as other brands like Park Inn), thanks to some unique features including:
Lucrative promos including their current summer promotion where you get 10,000 bonus points on two-night stays.
Half-price award redemptions on two-night award stays if you have one of the Club Carlson credit cards.
Recent points flash sales where you could buy points for as low as 0.4 cents each.
For more background on the program, check out my Maximizing Club Carlson series, whose posts include Base Level Earning and Redemptions, Business Program, Elite Status and Cash + Points Redemptions.
