At 12:01 AM CDT on May 15, 2012 Radisson will be opening up registration for its Big Night Giveaway Promotion. With this promotion, you are able to get 50,000 Club Carlson points for a one night qualifying stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blu hotel worldwide from May 15, 2012 to July 15, 2012. Only the first 100,000 people to register will received 50,000 points. If you’re not one of the first 100,000 people to sign up, you only get 15,000 Club Carlson points. I was able to get in on this promotion last winter. I stayed one night at the Radisson Lexington Hotel in New York for about $115 and used the 50,000 points towards a couple nights stay at the Park Plaza Soi 18 Hotel in Bangkok. I wrote up a hotel review about my stays there.
But wait, it gets better. Indulge the Wanderlust has confirmed that this promotion is stackable with other promotions from Club Carlson. Country Inns & Suites will be running a promotion for 44,000 Club Carlson points when you complete one qualifying night stay at a Country Inns & Suites from May 15, 2012 to July 15, 2012. Park Inn will be running a promotion for 44,000 Club Carlson points when you complete one qualifying night stay at a Park Inn from May 15, 2012 to July 15, 2012. If you complete all 3 promotions you can get 138,000 Club Carlson points.
Here’s a breakdown of the 3 different promotions and the sign up links to each. I’ve also included hotel directories so you can find the closest hotel brand for you.
- Country Inns & Suites
- Park Inn
I think this is a great deal and will try to complete all 3 promotions. A free night at a category 1 hotel in Club Carlson’s program will only cost you 9,000 points and the top tier (category 6) hotels will cost you 50,000 points. 138,000 Club Carlson points can get you a couple nights stay at some nice hotels. This would be especially useful if you were planing to go to Europe this summer because the Club Carlson group has tons of hotels in Europe. Check out the Club Carlson hotel directory. I was also pretty impressed with how quickly Club Carlson posted the points from the last promotion.
There are also some little tricks to help you get more points out of this promotion.
- If you have hotel status in another hotel program you can contact Club Carlson and ask for a status match. I was able to do this to get Gold status. Gold status also gets you a 50% room points bonus and 2,000 point online booking bonus. They were pretty quick in replying when I contacted them.
- If you don’t currently have a Club Carlson account, you can receive a 4,500 point bonus for signing up through this link: http://www.clubcarlson.com/privatePage.do?privateCode=EREWARDS
