Just as we are recovering from the shock of losing the best benefit of the Club Carlson Visa card (and the reason many may have voted for them in the Freddie Awards), they have announced a Club Carlson Triple Points – April 6 to June 28, 2015 – promotion. Registration is required and may be accessed here.
Typically a stay will earn 20 points a dollar. With this promotion you have the ability to earn as many as 77 points a dollar for eligible stays if you have the Club Carlson Visa which gives you an extra 7 points per dollar. Even without the card, 60 points a dollar for a paid stay is not too shabby. Eligible stays do not include point and cash stays (Note to self: Change Beijing stay). And if you take the time to book with the mobile app, you will receive a bonus of 1000 points on top of that.
This can be combined with the other
biscuit offer out there for the Club Carlson Visa® cardholders –
A one time bonus of 30,000 bonus Gold Points on your next stay when using your Club Carlson Visa®to pay for the stay. The terms and conditions of this offer are as follows:
Bonus Points Offer Terms and Conditions The 30,000 Bonus Points Offer (the “Offer”) is available only to Club CarlsonSM Visa® cardholders. The Offer is valid for 30,000 bonus Gold Points® on an Eligible Stay between April 1, 2015 and August 31, 2015 (“Promotion Period”). One Offer per Club Carlson Visa account holder. You must provide your Club Carlson number at the time of reservation or at check-in and pay for your stay with your Club CarlsonSM Visa®. Stays or nights paid for by redeeming points or by using Points + Cash are not eligible for the Offer.
So, in looking at my planned stay for Beijiing, I was going to use Points and Cash at the Park Plaza Wangfujing which would have been 10,000 points and about $83 per night. With this promotion, I think I might just ‘splash out’ for the Club Room (as even with Gold status, upgrades to Club Access are spotty) at a rate of ¥950.00 ($155.oo) a night. The regular room rate is appromixately ¥850.00 ($138.00) a night with various packages offered in between.
One night will earn 11,935 points and with the 30,000 point bonus plus 1000 for booking on the app, I can earn as much as 42,935 points from a one night paid stay. If I pay for the second night, the additional points will total 54870 – more than enough for a free night at a Category 5 hotel – and several nights at lower categories.
