Club Carlson Triple Points Returns

 

The Club Carlson Triple Points Returns promotion is back.

You’ll earn triple points when you stay at participating Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inns & Suites, Park Inn, and Park Plaza hotels worldwide between January 8 – March 15, 2013.

Like room service?  Or plan on dining at the hotel restaurant?  You’ll also earn triple points on food and beverage charges to your room.

2 Easy Steps to Earning Triple Points With Club Carlson Triple Points Returns:

  1. Register for the Club Carlson Triple Points Return promotion
  2. Stay at a participating Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inns & Suites, Park Inn, and Park Plaza hotels worldwide between January 8 – March 15, 2013

Is the Club Carlson Triple Points Returns promotion worthy of a mattress run?

In my opinion, no.  And here’s why…

Let’s assume a Radisson Hotel costs $100 a night.  With the Club Carlson Triple Points Returns promotion you’ll earn 60 points per $1 (20 standard + 40 bonus points under the promotion) which translates to 6,000 points for a $100 a night hotel.

Airport hotels on the weekends can sometimes be found for $89 a night on ExpediaOrbitz, and Travelocity.

Using Radisson’s Best Rate Guarantee which matches the lower rate you found and gives you an additional 25% off, that room would be reduced to approximately $67 a night, making your cost $0.08 cpp (cost per point). ($67 ÷ 4020 = $0.16).

 

16 cents per points is excessive especially when you buy Club Carlson points for less than half that cost.

While it’s not mattress run worthy, it’s still worthy of registering for the promotion, especially if you have upcoming Radisson stays.

These calculations are based on the assumption that you do not have status with Club Carlson nor have the Club Carlson credit card.

 Summary of the fine print:

  • Registration is required and must be completed before your stay or before checkout of your eligible stay
  • You’ll earn 40 Gold Points per $1 spent along with the standard 20 Gold Points per $1 spent
  • Stay at a participating Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inns & Suites, Park Inn, and Park Plaza hotels worldwide between January 8 – March 15, 2013
  • Bonus points will be received on eligible stay rates and food and beverages charged t your room
