NOWOPEN room rate analysis
Rate checks at a couple of hotels show the New Hotel Member Bonus is same as Best Flexible Rate. Advance purchase rates are lower and discount rates like AAA are probably a better deal to save 10% on room rate instead of earning 1,000 bonus points per night.
Even better than 1,000 bonus points per night is a triple points deal I see for Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Metairie (New Orleans), Louisiana, Book Now offering triple points for the same rate as Best Flexible.
Look at this points earning potential for a 3-night stay in February 23-26, 2015 for a midweek stay. This hotel has higher rates on weekends.
Queen Bed Triple Points rate = $109/night for $368.70 after tax.
Club Carlson 3x points = 60 points/$1, so $327 in hotel spend earns 19,620 points. Extend Your Stay bonus = 30,000 bonus points. Total points earned for a base member are 49,620 points. This is close to 50,000 points needed for a category 6 hotel in places like Paris, San Francisco and London.
Club Carlson Visa card member earns an additional 27 points/$1 for a total 87 points/$1. That is 58,449 total points for $327 room rate on a three night stay.
$368.70 after tax for 3-night stay earns 58,449 points for a Club Carlson Visa member paying with Club Carlson credit card. That works out to earning points at a rate of $6.32 per 1,000 points while getting a 3-night hotel stay in the New Orleans area.
The NOWOPEN promotion for 1,000 bonus points per night is a good deal if you need to pay Best Flexible rate. Other bonus points opportunities like triple points at Country Inn & Suites Metairie offer a great rebate value for a newly opened hotel.
