Carlson Rezidor Hotels has another 25% hotel discount sale for select hotels in the Americas. Book by 11:59pm CT Friday, March 13 and stay by March 31, 2015.
These recurring sales, like twice per month, are sent to Club Carlson email subscribers. These discount rates at most hotels allow day of arrival cancellation with no penalty.
Club Carlson currently has the best value promotion with Extend Your Stay bonus points available for stays through March 29, 2015.
A single hotel stay earns 30,000 bonus points for a 3-night and longer stay or 15,000 bonus points for a 2-night stay. The normal earn rate for Club Carlson points is 20 points per dollar and 30,000 points is the bonus points equivalent to $1,500 in hotel spend for a basic Club Carlson member.
A new Country Inn & Suites opened this winter in Dixon, California with the name U.C. Davis Area attached. I have been thinking about going back to visit University of California Davis. I graduated in 1987 with a B.S. in Fermentation Science and learned neat skills like how to make a coffee filter folding a paper towel and avoid growing food poisoning bacteria in my kitchen.
$215 for a 3-night stay at Country Inn Dixon and earn 30,000 bonus points and another 5,000 or so points as a Club Carlson Gold member.
There are hotel rate deals like this all over the country. I see an account balance on my profile page of 300,000 points and think to myself at least 12 nights in Europe next summer are covered with Club Carlson points. That is some big time travel savings of $3,000 or more staying in European hotels on points earned through low cost hotel stays in the Americas in March 2015.
