Triple Club Carlson points for stays worldwide from January 8 to March 15, 2013 is a high value promotion in my opinion. In my review of hotel loyalty promotions of 2012 for InsideFlyer magazine, I realized the 60 points per dollar offer from Club Carlson last year was one of the best promotions that I did not earn.
Club Carlson offers a standard earn rate of 20 points per dollar for Radisson, Radisson Blu, Park Plaza, Park Inn and Country Inn & Suites brands. Triple points adds 40 bonus points/$1 for a total earn rate of 60 points/$1. Elite bonus points, online booking points, and credit card points, if applicable, are additional bonus points for stays.

Book by September 4 for a Radisson, Country Inn or Park Inn rate discount of “35% off stays of 2 nights or more” from September 14 through November 24, 2012. This offer applies to participating hotels and dates for properties across the Americas from the USA to Canada to South America and Caribbean.
Cheers for Carlson Rezidor Hotels providing a list of properties and dates where these discounts can be found. Yesterday Hyatt released an “up to 30%” 48 hour sale rate discount with no list of participating hotels. I tried a dozen searches across several cities and never found a participating Hyatt Hotel offering the rate discount.
“25 for 25” is another great value promotion from Club Carlson to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Country Inn & Suites by giving members 25,000 points for a 2-night stay. Stay two nights at a Country Inn & Suites from August 15 – October 14, 2012 on the “25 for 25” promotion rate and earn 25,000 bonus points.
- Earn 25,000 bonus points with a 2-night stay at Country Inn & Suites from August 15 through October 14, 2012.
- This offer is not valid on existing reservations.
- Must book room using rate code “25 for 25”. Rates tend to be about 20% higher than lowest available prepaid, nonrefundable rates at hotels I checked. The rate disparity is smaller at some hotels.
- 25,000 bonus points may be earned only one time per member during this promotion.
- Not all Country Inn & Suites offer this rate on all dates. My searches of California and Arizona properties showed about 50% of hotels offered the “25 for 25” rate for several hotel stay dates I checked.
- “25 for 25” promotion registration required before completing your eligible stay.
- These rates offered flexible cancellation for Country Inn hotels I checked. Some hotels offered day of arrival cancellation with no penalty.

What brings you to Calabasas?
This hotel brought me to Calabasas.
Hotel loyalty programs take me to places I would be unlikely to visit otherwise. Case in point was finding myself in Calabasas, California last week. The only reason I was staying in Calabasas was the Country Inn hotel was on Highway 101, convenient for my drive south to my primary destination of Disneyland, Anaheim and the location in the San Fernando Valley meant I did not have to continue on and drive the LA freeways on a Friday night.

Where is the Value in Chain Hotels?
During the TBEX 2012 conference last weekend at Keystone, Colorado I spoke with many people who told me they do not see much value in hotel loyalty programs. Almost everyone said frequent flyer programs have great value.
I have no interest in converting people to hotel loyalty program aficionados. I have found plenty of value in hotel loyalty program travel these past few years. I’ll just keep writing and sharing the promotions where I see value.
In remembrance of days past when flying earned the kinds of frequent flyer bonuses hotel loyalty programs now offer. Read More…
