The clocks have gone forward, spring is in the air, and it’s time for the various hotel chains to announce their Q2 promotions! First to try to win your business is Club Carslon, the chain behind brands like Radisson Blu, Park Plaza and Park Inn. Club Carlson have just announced their promotion valid until the 30th of June.
Unlike their overly complicated Q1 promotion, this time is very simple. For all stays from yesterday (3rd of April) through to the end of June (30th), you’ll earn Triple Gold Points. On top of that, to try to get you to stay on weekends, you’ll get an additional 5,000 bonus points Gold Points for each Sunday and Monday night stayed during the period.
To register, you need to head to https://www.clubcarlson.com/secure/offers/12596561, log into your account, and click the button to register. No guessing how many stays, simply register and stay!
Often, hotel chains trying to get extra weekend stays offer extra points for stays involving a Friday or Saturday night. This one could be quite good for those of you travelling on business, as you can get a bonus 5,000 points for a Monday night (or a Sunday for those taking a long weekend or similar)
The top-end Radisson Blu and Quorvus Collection hotels go for 70,000 gold points per night. A Park Inn in a regional UK city will tend to set you back about 30,000 points per night. The odd un-loved property can be as little as 9,000 points for a night!
You ought to be able to fairly easily get about 0.3-0.4p of value per gold point, so the 5,000 point weekend night bonus is roughly worth £15-£20. A £50 Sunday night stay would earn you about 3,000 points with the triple points offer, and another 5,000 for the weekend night, so around £24-£32 worth of points back! Not quite enough for a mattress run, but certainly worth considering if you needed a hotel anyway.
There’s a limit of 100,000 bonus points from the promotion per member, and cash+points or points bookings don’t count. You’ll need to have registered before your first stay.
Full T&c are:
You must be a Club CarlsonSM member to participate in the “Triple Points + 5K” Promotion (“Promotion”). Promotion is valid for Eligible Stays which are stays reserved at an Eligible Rate booked through and eligible source, as defined in the Club Carlson Terms and Conditions, between April 3, 2017 and June 30, 2017 (“Promotion Period”). Both the check-in and check-out dates of the Eligible stay must take place within the Promotional Period. To earn 40 bonus Gold Points per US. Dollar spent on Eligible Stays in addition to the 20 standard Gold Points per U.S. Dollar spent on Eligible Stays (“Triple Points”), you must register online for the Promotion at clubcarlson.com/gettriple and provide your Club Carlson member number at the time of reservation or at check-in. Stays or nights paid for by redeeming points are not Eligible for this Promotion. Stays or nights paid for by using Points + Cash are not Eligible for this Promotion. You only need to register once, but you must register before checkout of the Eligible Stay to earn Triple Points for that stay. Requests for bonus points for stays prior to Promotion registration will not be honored.
In addition to Triple Points, once you are registered you will earn 5,000 bonus points for each Sunday and Monday night during an Eligible Stay. Stays that include both a Sunday and a Monday night are eligible for two (2) bonus awards of 5,000 points for a total up to 10,000 bonus points. Consecutive nights at the same hotel are considered one stay regardless of the number of check-ins and check-outs. If the Eligible Stay includes more than one Sunday or Monday night, the 5,000 bonus points for each additional night will be added to the member’s account at the end of the promotion period, up to the 100,000 point maximum.*
Bonus points earning for the entire Promotion (Triple Points plus 5,000 points for Sunday and Monday nights) will be capped at 100,000 points per member. Bonus Gold Points will be credited to the member’s account when the standard Gold Points are credited for the Eligible Stay and will usually be posted to a member’s account within 5 days after the Eligible Stay has been completed.
