I’ve touted in the past my love of the Club Carlson VISA credit card and all the benefits that come with it in particular a free award night when you book a two night stay using your points – book the two nights and only pay for one night with points – the second night is free! That benefit is going away the end of May, 2015.
With that in mind I’ve been trying to anticipate some of our travel and booking hotel rooms to be grandfathered into the existing benefit. I know that we are going to be taking another river cruise next year on the Rhone and we will spend some time in Lyon and Paris. Unfortunately the Radisson in Lyon is under construction and will not be open. I was able to book two nights under my name at the Radisson Blu Le Metropolitan Hotel. These stays are for September 2016 ! I still have more points in my account and will need to spend some more time thinking of where we could possibly go before May 31st so I can book them under the old system.
What are you doing with your Club Carlson points? Have you made any reservations knowing that the benefit is going to be changing?
