It’s been a while since we’ve had a contest here on the blog, so I’m delighted to announce that Just Another Points Traveler and the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature card have teamed up offer a pretty neat “Golden Giveaway” , which will give two (2) lucky readers the chance to each score a $500 prepaid Visa -and- Club Carlson Gold Status valid until February of 2014. Pretty neat!
The Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature card has quickly become my family’s favorite co-branded hotel card since it was first announced in late 2012. As a points-obsessed family, Dad and I have used the card’s ”Bonus Award Nights” benefit during our spring trip to Australia, and I have also used it while visiting Tel Aviv back in February. Knowing that bonus free award nights are possible just by being a card holder and redeeming Goldpoints normally definitely helps us stretch our points for memorable (and longer) vacations!
As you may already know, Club Carlson is the loyalty program for Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, a company with more than 1,000 hotels (Radisson Blu, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn by Radisson, Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM) in 81 countries and territories. The credit card was launched in December and offers card-members many benefits including the ability to earn Gold Points® at an incredibly fast rate and therefore earn more free nights at any of the Carlson Rezidor hotels; an automatic upgrade to Gold Status after their first purchase; the ability to receive 10 points per dollar on eligible net purchases at participating Carlson Rezidor hotels and five points per dollar everywhere Visa is accepted; and more!
As mentioned above, there will be two winners that will be drawn at random. The first winner will be selected from the comments section of this post, and the second winner will be drawn from the Twitter entries.
Each winner will receive a $500 prepaid Visa card and Club Carlson Gold Status that will be valid until February 2014. Note: If either of the winners already have Gold Status with Club Carlson, then the winner(s) will be given Club Carlson Concierge Status through February 2014 (after verification by Club Carlson of the winner’s current Gold Status).
Please note: in order to accept the Club Carlson Gold Status (or Concierge Status) and a $500 Visa prepaid card, the winners must already be or sign up to be a Club Carlson member. If you aren’t already a member, you may sign up for free here. To claim the prizes, winners must provide their full names, email address, mailing address, phone number and Club Carlson number.
