At the moment Club Carlson has a super easy promotion to earn 3,000 bonus points through their app. I conservatively value Club Carlson points at ~0.3 cents each, so to me those points are worth ~$9. So I wouldn’t recommend this promotion if it weren’t super easy to take advantage of.
Club Carlson is offering 3,000 bonus points when you download their app and make your first purchase with one of their “Extras Partners” through it by December 31, 2017. Even if you don’t have the app, you should be able to take full advantage of this promotion in less than two minutes for a purchase of about a dollar. There’s no registration required, and no indication that the promotion is targeted.
First you’ll want to download the Club Carlson app.
Then you’ll want to log-in with your Club Carlson username and password.
Then at the bottom you’ll want to click on the “Extras” tab, where you’ll see the participating partners. Any sort of activity with any of Club Carlson’s partners will trigger the bonus.
It would seem to me like the easiest way to take advantage of this promotion is to just download a song on iTunes. So just look up your favorite artist and buy a song.
I downloaded “Treat You Better” by Shawn Mendes, natch. The only surprising part there should be that I don’t have the song yet. And that’s it. Once you’re confirmed the purchase Club Carlson should automatically record it, and bonus points should post in 7-10 days.
There’s no need to go back to the Club Carlson app — since you clicked over to iTunes (or whatever partner) from the Club Carlson app, that’s enough to record the purchase.
Taking advantage of this promotion should also help reset the expiration date of your points, since they otherwise expire after 24 months of inactivity.
