Club Carlson awards me 50k Gold points in advance

You probably have heard of the Park Inn One to One Promotion and wonder which Park Inn you can stay at because there are not many in America. I am planning to visit New Mexico and book one night Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Water Park, Albuquerque, NM for June 14-15

Carlson (Radisson) Hotels – Family and Friends Rate – Works Worldwide

Club Carlson has been proactively advertising and gaining market share in North America by running Mega Deal with Radisson Hotel in which you can earn around 150k Gold Points after three hotel stays.

They have these four brands worldwide: Radisson, Country Inn & Suites, Park Inn, Park Plaza and Radisson Blu

They have an amazing hotel discount code that I have used a lot. It normally brings a hotel price down to $70 or $80 per night pre-tax. Considering that those hotel can normally go for $200 in big cities such as NYC, DC, Boston, LA, $70 is a steal. Even though Club Carlson is aware of this Family and Friend rate abuse, they ignore it and let people experience their products at a discount.

The way to apply the code is to

1. Go to Country Inns & Suites (Club Carlson Website)
2. Enter info about city, check-in date, check-out date
3. In the “promotional code” add CARLSONF

country inn and club

4. When you click “Book Now” a warning message will arise “Before booking this rate, please note that employee name and work location will be required at time of check-in.”
5. Don’t worry you can use this link to write down a few names of employees at Club Carlson just in case they ask at the front desk
6. Or you can buy my Carlson employee’s information by Paypal me $5 to

I will send you an email with a PDF file that contains Employee Information for Check-In

Enjoy the savings
