Earlier I wrote about how Club Carlson will be offering a flash sale on the purchase of points over the next two weeks. Well, the first such sale is now live!
With a 75% bonus you’re paying just 0.4 cents per point.
Even though Club Carlson points purchases are processed by points.com, people are reporting that if you use your Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card you’ll earn 10 points per dollar spent (I haven’t been able to verify this directly). If that’s the case, that means purchasing 70,000 Gold Points would actually get you a total of 72,800 points as long as you use their co-branded card. So that’s a rate of 0.385 cents per point!
That’s a hell of a value in conjunction with their co-branded credit card. Most of their top hotels go for 50,000 points per night, and when you redeem for a two night stay the second night is free, assuming you have their card. So this is like paying less than $100 per night for one of their better hotels, including in London Paris, Stockholm, etc.
The sale is live through 11:59AM EST tomorrow, Thursday, June 19, 2014. You’re limited to purchasing 40,000 Club Carlson points per calendar year.
