Club Carlson has a Canada Radisson Hotels summer 2014 promotion offer for 10,000 bonus points with a weekend stay at any of 15 Radisson Hotels. Stay must include two consecutive nights with Friday-Saturday or Saturday-Sunday booked with rate code GPPWKND entered in promotional code box. Hotel stay must begin before or on August 31, 2014.
Room rate checks show the GPPWKND rate is higher than Best Available Rate. The rate checks I made show GPPWKND has a flexible cancellation policy similar to Best Available Rate. This offer looks like a good deal for some of the participating hotels.

Hotel Promotion Rate Analysis
Radisson Hotel Edmonton South for two nights Friday, August 25 to Sunday, August 27, 2014.
- $159 CAD per night for GPPWKND rate with 10,000 bonus points.
- $126.65 CAD for Advance Purchase prepaid, nonrefundable rate.
- $134.10 CAD for AAA rate.
- $149 CAD for Best Available Rate with same flexible cancellation policy as 10K bonus points rate.
There is an additional 12% tax or so on these room rates. The 10,000 bonus points rate is about $35CAD more than the advance purchase rate, but only about $11 more than the BAR rate after tax.
Last week Club Carlson had a special offer to buy points for $$.00 per 1,000 points. This sets a comparative value for 10,000 bonus points at $40.
The GPPWKND 10,000 bonus points rate for an extra $22 to $70 can be considered a good rate value if you would not book the advance purchase rate.
The extra $55 or so paid after two nights over the AAA rate is about the break-even point for 10,000 Club Carlson bonus points.
One thing to note is when I checked Radisson Halifax with rates at $230 CAD per night, the Points & Cash rate for 10,000 points + $130 per night provided a decent savings for 10,000 points.
Club Carlson GPPWKND rate for Radisson Hotels in Canada this summer might be a promotion you want to look at closely if your travels take you to these places.
