Club Carlson has just announced a pretty generous bonus point promotion for mobile app bookings: Earn 3,000 bonus Gold points for using the app to book a hotel through November 16, 2014. No, it’s not another 50,000 point bonus, but you can get the 3,000 point bonus multiple times during the promotional period. Award bookings or Points + Cash awards are not eligible for the bonus. Eligible stays must be completed by November 16, 2014. The 3,000 bonus Gold points will post after your completed stay, along with your standard point earnings.
This 3,000 point bonus is enough to get you a third of the way to a free night at a Category 1 hotel, which requires 9,000 points per night. Or use it towards a Points + Cash award, which starts at 5,000 points and variable cash co-pays for a Category 1-3 hotel.
Club Carlson is one of the best hotel loyalty programs when it comes to earning free nights (along with Hilton HHonors, if you can believe it). It takes just $450 in spend for a standard Red member of the Club Carlson program to earn a free night at a Category 1 hotel (9,000 points per night). Compare that to a program like Hyatt Gold Passport, where the same amount of spend would get you barely halfway to a free night at a Category 1 hotel.
The bottom line is this 3,000 point booking bonus, stacked with Club Carlson’s already generous earning structure, can make for quite a point haul. When you factor in the last night free benefit of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa, you can stretch the points you’ve earned even further.
To recap, here are the details of the Club Carlson mobile booking promotion:
- Earn 3,000 bonus Gold points when you book a hotel via the mobile booking app
- Bookings must be made and stays must be completed by November 16, 2014.
- Only point-earning rates are eligible for the 3,000 point bonus.
- Award nights or Points + Cash awards do not qualify.
