Last week Club Carlson announced that they’d be offering some flash sales on the purchase of Gold Points. They launched their first 75% bonus on purchased Club Carlson points the same day that they announced these flash sales would be coming.

Well, the flash sale offering a 75% bonus on purchased points is back again today, through 8:59AM EST tomorrow, Tuesday, June 24, 2014.

Here’s the link to purchase Club Carlson Gold Points.

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.

You’re limited to purchasing 40,000 Club Carlson points per calendar year, so if you maxed out the last promotion you wouldn’t be eligible for this one.

Do keep in mind that Club Carlson lets you combine points from multiple accounts with no fee, so one way around the limit is to buy points for multiple accounts. If you don’t have status then you can combine points from multiple accounts within the same household for no fee. However, if you do have status then you can combine points with anyone for no fee. Keep in mind that just having the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card gets you Gold status, which is enough to avoid that transfer fee.

  1. It is somewhat odd, this flash sale bit. I’m not sure the points will devalue by fall. Whatever happens, I hope CC gives ample notice. This is just common courtesy. In light of the many “flash sales” I think it is only fair to the customer, IMHO.

  2. I’m logged in and I was able to buy the points (went to their twitter), but clicking on the link above brings you to a fb page with this message “Notice
    Something Went Wrong
    Sorry, there was a problem with this link: http://ow.ly/ygNgK
    You can now continue to this website, or go back to the page you were on before.
    Remember, only follow links from sources you trust.”

  3. @ Ann — Hmm, that’s odd. That was the link on their Facebook with redirected to the sale, though I updated the link to the generic one for buying points with them.

  4. Lucky,

    If my wife and I both got this card, would there be any problem of booking 2 separate 2 night stays for a 4 night stay at a hotel?That is 2 separate 2nd night free.

    Would you see any problem of telling the hotel about this at check in and asking them to allow you to stay in the same room for 4 days?

    Thanks,,

    David
