Club Carlson buy points 100% bonus Nov27-28

Club Carlson has a 100% bonus points offer November 27-28, 2017 bringing the price down from $7.00 to $3.50 per 1,000 points. Members can purchase up to 40,000 points in a calendar year.

Club Carlson Buy Points Nov 27

This is one of the best hotel deals around in my opinion. In 2017, I stayed at the category 1 Park Inn Kaunas, Lithuania for 13,500 points per night in a Business Class junior suite upgrade room. That room is a $47.25 room night with this sale. In June 2017, the room rate for this category room is $166.

I have a 3-night stay next month in Europe at a Club Carlson category 3 hotel for 84,000 points over New Year’s weekend when the room rate is $609 for those three nights.

This sale allows me to buy 80,000 points for $280 and replace the points I redeemed.

Next summer I want to take my wife Kelley to the Baltics, where there are 14 Club Carlson hotels. This points sale cuts the room rate by 50% or more at several hotels in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Park Inn Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel, Tallinn, Estonia

22,500 points Junior Suite or $198 USD

Park Inn Tallinn 22500 Business class

The cost to buy 22,500 points is $78.75 with today’s sale.

This is a good deal if you are traveling in places with low category Club Carlson reward nights.

  1. I am thinking about this, but wanted to comment (indeed emphasize) that the 22.5 for the junior suite cited isn’t something one is going to typically see. In fact, standard rooms in their major hotels are routinely 70k during peak periods, and rarely less than 40. I’m a fan of Carlson, but their award redemption rates have gone thru the roof the last few years.

  2. Ric, do you know if a purchase of the points that is made with a Carlson Credit card will get you points for usage as if it were at a hotel?

  3. Club Carlson definitely conceded its competitive advantage in 2017 for high end hotels with reward points. Still, I see dozens of hotels in Europe alone in category 1, 2 and 3 (9K, 15K, 28K) where I would like to stay.

    Nearly all my Club Carlson points are redeemed for cat 1-3 hotels. I don’t even consider paying 70,000 points for a hotel reward night since I can find a better value deal for my lodging.

    I have not stayed at a USA Club Carlson hotel since early 2015 as far as I recall.

  4. Bluecat, points purchases DO NOT earn double as hotel stays do. I just checked my old statement from last year when I bought a few points.
