Club Carlson Flash Sale
purchase link For Club Carlson Points (I do not receive a commission for this link)
Until 5:29PM EST today, you can buy Club Carlson points at the regular rate of .7 cents per point and then receive a 75% bonus on the points you purchase. You can purchase up to 40,000 points (and receive a 30,000 point bonus) in a calendar year. The total cost for the maximum of 70,000 points is $280.
It is always a sticky thing to buy points for travel. However, there are some cases where it can make perfect sense. Club Carlson is one of those cases. If you have a Club Carlson credit card, then you can essentially stay for two award nights for the price of one because the perk that you get the last night on an award stay for free. That is huge! If you used all the points for a stay at a top tier hotel (70,000 points), you would be able to stay for two nights, thanks to the credit card perk. That is two nights at a top tier hotel for $280 – or $140 per night! While many would balk at paying that much for a hotel room, if you would pay cash for that night, you could stay there for a couple of hundred dollars cheaper by purchasing the points.
The great part is the lower category hotels in Europe. The cash price for hotels in Europe can be very high and the categories can be on the lower side. For example, a category 1 would only require 9,000 points. That would only cost you $42, or $21 a night, through this promo to buy those points!
If you think it might be worth it for you, then hurry up and jump on it before it is too late! Yes, this is the third flash sale with more to come, but there is probably not a better time to buy than now! This is a much better deal than the sale they ran last year. Are you buying?
