Using The Club Carlson 30% Coupon For The 50,000 Point Big Night Giveaway

A reader just emailed me a question about using the Club Carlson 30% off promotion in conjunction with the 50,000 Point Big Night Giveaway.

I’ve been meaning to write about that 30% off promotion for a while, so I figured now is as good of a time as any.

If you are just joining us for Club Carlson’s 50,000 Point Big Night Giveaway, the old posts are below.

How To Take Advantage Of Radisson’s Big Night Giveaway

Basically, until the end of June, at select Club Carlson properties you can get an additional 30% off your stay if you use code 30PCTOFF when you book.

Additionally if you click thru TopCashBack.com , you get an additional 10% off, with the coupon that is almost 40% off your total in additional to the 50,000 or so points from this promotion!

How To Find What Hotels Are Eligible For the 30% Promotion

I’m based out of Chicago, and actually a friend of mine was asking about cheap Club Carlson hotels in Chicago, so I did a quick search of Chicago hotels at ClubClarson.com.

When you search you want to click on “More Search Options” link (highlighted in yellow below), so you can enter the promo code of 30PCTOFF.

After you hit “More Search Options”, simply plug in your information along with the promo code and hit search.

Not all properties are participating, from the looks of it that includes all the Radisson Aqua hotels.

When searching by a particular hotel, remember that the hotel might not be offering the 30% rate at the exact date you are looking for, however they may be offering it on a different date.

Therefore, you have to tinker to find the dates that the particular hotel is offering the 30% off rate by using their flexible calendar, as I have done below.

For the first dates I put in, the hotel was not offering the 30% off rate.

So I clicked on the Flexible Dates Calendar and saw what dates were available and picked a date that worked for me.

And like magic, the 30% off rate came up.

For $63, it is hard to think of a reason not to take part in this promotion!

I almost feel dumb now for paying $100 to do my Big Night Stay at Country Inn & Suites in Bloomington, IL!

Remember that the 50,000 Points you earn from the Big Night Giveaway can be used at Radisson’s ultra nice Aqua hotels. The one in Chicago goes for $390 a night.

I’ll let you do the math but spending $63 to earn 50,000 Points that you can redeem to stay at a nice hotel that costs $390 a night ($451 if you include tax), in the words of Larry David, seems like a prettty prettttttttty good deal.

A Few Parting Words

The Reader that reminded me about this 30% off sale also had a few questions, so I thought I’d share the answers.

Q: Can you transfer Club Carlson Points between 2 different Club Carlson accounts (ie. Husband/ Wife, etc)?

A: Yes you can. Instructions can be found here.

Q: Do Club Carlson Points Expire?

A: Yes, but only after 2 years of not having activity in your account. So if you do this promotion, then you have 2 years to use the points before the expire.

2 Other Things To Remember

  • If you use ClubCarlson.com to perform your search for eligible hotels and then want to book it via TopCashBack to get an additional 10%, remember to close your browser and clear your cookies before you use TopCashBack, or you probably won’t get the cash back.
  • The Big Night Giveaway ends July 15, so make sure your stay is prior to that date or you won’t get the 50,000 Points!

Hopefully this new 30% off coupon encourages some of you to loose your mattress run virginity and rack up a ton of points at a minimal cost!

    so How do I book radisson. country inn to get the 50k or 44k bonus offer plus topcashback's 10% off plus this email 2k points back deal?

  2. i have 2 emails signed up for this radisson 50k offer, i can't find the confirmation email in my inbox, i only see the PARK INN 44k offer,

    but I checked the radissonbignightgateway.com and entered my email and cc number and it says, I already registered for it ?

  3. @Jim – same thing happened to me. Check you spam folder. If it says you are registered, then you are registered so don't worry about it.

  4. @jim – im not sure if you can do both. I'd suggest doing whatever is more valuable to you, either 10% off or 2,000 bonus points.

  5. Actually, you messed up. To get the 50,000 points, you have to stay at a RADISSON hotel, the other Club Carlson hotels don't qualify.

  6. @andy – I just used country inn for the example. The coupon can be used at radisson to get the full 50k points. -Parag
