Club Carlson has announced details of an intriguing new promotion. For every two paid stays between 1 July and 30 September, 2017, you can earn a free Friday night at ANY Club Carlson hotel in the world.
If you have no need for a free Friday night, you can choose to earn 10,000 Points instead. That’s a really bad idea, however, since free nights at Club Carlson start at 9,000 points per night, but those Category 1 properties are few and far between (and also not very nice).
Each Club Carlson account has a cap of 3 free nights, or 30,000 Points. In other words… 6 stays. (as you can’t earn three free nights AND 30,000 points)
If you opt for a free Friday night, it will be awarded in the form of an E-Certificate that you should see in your Club Carlson account and can book online. The Friday E-Certificates will be valid for a free Friday night between 6 October and 26 January, 2018.
According to the terms of the promotion, the E-Certificates will be awarded three times throughout the Promotion, 1) by 15 August for E-Certificates earned in July, 2) by 15 September for those earned in August and 3) by 15 October for those earned in September.
Pre-registration is required. You can do that by clicking here. You will have to choose between the points and the free nights, although the choice should be obvious.
It’s also worth mentioning that, for the paid stay to qualify, both your check-in and check-out date must fall within the period of the promotion. So longer stays that overlap the beginning and the end of the promotion won’t count…
The headline looks great. The fine print not so much… But if you have a couple of stays with Club Carlson this summer, and fancy a free Friday night during the autumn, this promotion looks quite attractive.
