The rate must be eligible to earn Gold Points. An eligible stay is one or more consecutive nights paying a qualifying rate that is spent in the same hotel property — regardless of the number of times you check in or check out of that hotel property — which occur and post to your Club Carlson frequent guest loyalty program account.
A qualifying rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Gold Points in the Club Carlson frequent guest loyalty program. A maximum of 25,000 bonus Gold Points per member may be earned for this Offer. Multiple rooms charged to the same member during the same stay will only count as one stay.
Bonus Gold Points are in addition to the standard Gold Points awarded for an eligible stay. Eligible stays with a date of departure after May 31, 2014 — even if the stay includes nights within the promotional period — are not eligible for this promotion.
This offer is not valid for existing reservations; and it may not be used in conjunction with any other package, promotion, group or convention rate, or any other discounted rate.
Other terms and conditions may apply.
FlyerTalk members are generally disappointed with this promotion, as the Club Carlson frequent guest loyalty program — of which major changes were announced last month — once had promotions which were more generous. One example was where you could have earned 50,000 Club Carlson Gold Points for staying one night in a Radisson hotel property.
“What a crappy promotion…especially considering that these are simply the points you would’ve gotten anyway with the booking promo offered prior to it’s removal”, opined FlyerTalk member FlyingHigh20. “I suspect Club Carlson to continue to go in decline. They just cant play with the big boys and aren’t trying to really gain customers.”
FlyerTalk member littlemookie agrees that the Club Carlson frequent guest loyalty program is not “ready for prime time, but their issues are far deeper than crappy promos. Their US properties need a major overhaul, including a larger footprint, better QC, and a renewed focus on what type of hotel chain they want to be. The Radisson brand in the US is horrid for the most part, although I think CI&S has a lot of potential. The Radisson Blu rollout in the US is progressing at a glacial pace and I just don’t see the branded credit cards really giving them more than anything more than a short term boost.”
Do you agree with the sentiments posted by FlyingHigh20 and littlemookie?
