Club Carlson has just announced a promotion whereby they’re offering double elite qualifying nights for the rest of 2015. The promotion is valid for stays at Club Carlson properties worldwide between November 2 and December 31, 2015.
Registration is required, and the promotion is valid for the first 10 eligible nights of any given stay during the promotion period. It’s worth pointing out that only eligible nights are being doubled, and not eligible stays.
As a reminder, Club Carlson’s elite tiers are as follows:
- Silver: 15 nights or 10 stays
- Gold: 35 nights or 20 stays
- Concierge: 75 nights or 30 stays
Personally I have Gold status, which is a standard perk of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card (along with 40,000 points upon the account anniversary every year). I’ve been perfectly happy with the Gold status I get just for holding onto the card, and have pretty consistently received room upgrades, welcome amenities, and bonus points.
While there are some nice added perks for Concierge status, there’s no way I’d stay 75 nights with Club Carlson in order to get it. The Gold status you get with the credit card doesn’t come with any elite qualifying stays or nights, so while you have Gold status for as long as you have the card, you’d have to earn 75 elite qualifying nights or 30 elite qualifying stays to get Concierge status.

The full terms of the promotion are as follows:

Promotion is valid for one bonus Eligible Night toward Elite status for each Eligible Night completed during Promotion Period. Promotion is only valid for the first 10 Eligible Nights of an Eligible Stay during the Promotion Period. Must be a Club Carlson member to be eligible. To participate in the Promotion, the member must provide Club Carlson member number at time of reservation or check-in. Subject to all Club Carlson terms and conditions.

This is a nice promotion for any Club Carlson loyalist who is ending the year short of qualifying for their desired status level. Club Carlson has an extremely rewarding loyalty program in terms of the number of promotions they run (though it was also a rough year for devaluations with them), so to many there’s going to be value in going for a higher status level.
