Carlson Rezidor is offering a superb point purchase sale where Club Carlson is offering a 100% bonus on points purchased until November 28, 2017.
A maximum of 40,000 Club Carlson Gold points can be purchased every year and the 100% bonus will kick in with a minimum purchase of 1000 points. The 100% bonus will reduce the purchase value of per point to 0.35 US cents. This means that 80,000 Gold points will cost you a total of USD 280/ INR 18,050. You can buy the points here.
The points will take between 2 to 5 days to reflect in your account. 100% bonus on purchase is rare for Club Carlson to offer. Since 2015, the best they have offered is a 75% bonus on points purchase. And they don’t even offer that many point purchase sales in the first place.
The Carlson Rezidor Group has about 1,000 hotels worldwide, with about 100 mid-scale properties spread across 70 cities in India alone. To me, Club Carlson is one membership program that holds value for Indian travellers travelling domestically as well as abroad. It’s a global hotel chain you will find in smaller cities like Mohali, Katra and Salem. In spite of the fact that a lot of Indian hotels became more expensive this year, yet Indian hotels mainly fall under Categories 1,2 & 3, which not only means that redemption points required as less but also that the room rates are not very high.
Here are a few Carlson Rezidor hotels that make a great choice for point redemption:
- Radisson Hotel Khajuraho, India / Category 1 / 9,000 points
- Park Inn by Radisson Budapest, Hungary / Category 1 / 9,000 points
- Radisson Udaipur, India / Category 2 / 15,000 points
- Radisson Narita, Japan / Category 2 / 15,000 points
This is the best purchase promotion that Club Carlson has offered in a few years and while redemptions in India may not be the best use of points, Club Carlson does have some nice properties across Europe. So, if you are falling short of points in your account then this is the best offer you will get for adding up the points now. Also, remember that you can earn 3,000 bonus points when you book your stays via the Club Carlson app.
