Club Carlson is the loyalty program for the Regent, Radisson, Radisson Blu, Radisson Edwardian, Park Plaza, Country Inns Suites, and Park Inn hotels.
The program’s current strategy is to promote the brands individually rather than collectively as a network or family of hotels.
And the promotions have been very aggressive, with very generous brand-specific offers for stays at Radisson, Country Inns &amp; Suites, and Park Inn hotels, and most recently, Park Plaza hotels.
Now it’s Country Inns &amp; Suites’ turn, again.
Between August 15 and October 14, Club Carlson members can earn 25,000 bonus points after two or more consecutive nights at a Country Inns &amp; Suites hotel. The bonus may only be earned once per member.
Qualifying stays must be booked at the 25 for 25 Promotion Rate. (Stays booked on the countryinns.com website will earn an additional 1,000 bonus points.)
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
The normal Club Carlson earning rate for Country Inns stays is 20 points per $1. So if your two-night stay costs $200, you’d earn 4,000 points. The 25,000-point bonus featured in this promotion would be more than six times that. It’s a biggie.
There is a caveat, however, which applies whenever a bonus is linked to a required rate or fare. In my own necessarily limited test bookings, the 25 for 25 rate was the same as the Best Available Rate. But there may be cases where there’s a premium charged for the promotional rate, which would diminish the value of this offer. Do check and compare before booking.
