Disclosure: I am getting two one-night stay certificates at U.S. Radissons for hosting this giveaway. I’ll look into giving them away too.
The Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card has generously donated two $500 Visa Gift Cards and two prizes of Club Carlson Gold Status for two lucky MileValue readers. The contest ends tonight, Friday November 8, 2013 at 11:59 PM Hawaii Time. I will pick and announce the winners tomorrow. You can still enter in two ways today even if you entered twice on Monday!
Each of the two winners will receive:
- One $500 Visa Gift Card
- Club Carlson Gold Elite Status through February 2014 (If you already have Club Carlson Gold Status, you will receive Concierge Status through February 2014.)
What are the two ways to enter today? What are the two ways to enter from Monday? How can you enter four ways in four minutes?
Info on the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card
I just signed up for the business version of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card in August because it is one of the best hotel cards on the market.
The killer benefit is that cardholders receive the last night free on any award of two nights or longer. That means that two night award stays are 50% off!
Other benefits include:
- 10 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases at participating Carlson Rezidor hotels worldwide
- 5 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases everywhere else
- 85,000 Bonus Gold Points to start – Receive 50,000 Gold Points after your first purchase. Plus 35,000 points once you spend $2,500 on your card within the first 90 days
- Bonus Award Night – When you redeem Gold Points for 2 or more consecutive Award Nights, your last night is free. Exclusively for cardmembers!
- Club Carlson Gold Status is yours after you activate and use your card
- 40,000 Renewal Bonus Points each year when you renew your card
- $75 annual fee
The automatic annual 40,000 point retention bonus means I would plan to hold a Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card indefinitely.
Club Carlson Gold Points can be used at over 1,000 Radisson, Radisson Blu, Park Plaza, Park Inn, Country Inns and Suites properties worldwide.
After meeting the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card‘s minimum spending requirement, you’d have at least 97,500 Gold Points, which with the last-night-free benefit on award nights, would be enough for 20 nights–ten two-night stays–at a Category 1 hotel like the Radisson Blue Beke, Budapest.
My aspirational Club Carlson property is the Category 6 Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow, which costs 50,000 points per night. As a cardholder, you could stay two nights in the hotel for 50,000 points total.
How to Enter
There are two winners for today’s contest and two ways to win. You can enter both ways, but you can only win one of the prize packages. You have to be a Club Carlson member to collect your prize package, so sign up here for free.
Comment once on today’s post with the hotel within Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s portfolio (more than 1,000 properties worldwide) at which you would be most excited to use the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card.
I will randomly pick one of the comments from this post or Monday’s post as a winner after entry closes at 11:59 PM Hawaii time on Friday, November 8, 2013.
