For a very limited time – until tomorrow 28 November, 2017 – Club Carlson is offering a 100% bonus when buying Gold Points. This is the highest bonus I can recall seeing from Club Carlson.
Club Carlson has a very low annual limit when selling points – 40,000 per year – so this bonus makes that 80,000 points. But, helpfully, this 100% bonus applies to all purchases, large or small.
Does it Make Sense?
If you spend $280 (£210) on 80,000 points, your per-point cost becomes 0.26p.
Although Club Carlson is definitely not my favourite hotel chain, a standard room at a top end hotel costs 70,000 points per night. When you make a comparison with the cash cost of a night at a hotel such as the May Fair, you could spend £183.75 buying 70,000 Club Carlson points, or you could spend a whole lot more…
And, at the lower end, if you should happen to require an award Category 1 property, buying those 9,000 points will only cost you £23.63.
Given the relatively low annual limit, you aren’t going to pay for a long holiday by buying points today. But if you need a small top-up, you should definitely take advantage of this Cyber Monday promotion and buy points with the highest bonus I’ve seen.
