Registration for Park Inn 44,000 Club Carlson Point Bonus Now Live

Last week, Club Carlson’s giant promotion launched for two of its brands, where you effectively can buy a cheap hotel night and earn enough points for a stay at any of their hotels in the world.

The most famous and historically lucrative hotel promotion has been Hyatt’s Faster Free Nights, every two stays is a free night, and you could do a couple of cheap airport stays and redeem for, say, the Park Hyatts in Paris or Tokyo. (We haven’t seen that offer in a couple of years and it is missed by many.)

This takes things a step further, it’s effectively buy one get one free but since it’s points you don’t have a short timeframe within which you have to redeem your stay (as long as you keep your account active) and you can split up the points to yield several lower category hotel nights.

Registration went live on the 15th for the Radisson 50,000 point offer and the Country Inns & Suites 44,000 point offer.

Registration is now live for the Park Inn promo as well, the first 20,000 people to register and stay by July 22 will receive 44,000 bonus points. (Later registrants receive only 15,000 bonus points.)

There are fewer Park Inn properties in the U.S. than there are outposts of the other two brands, so this won’t work out for everyone, but I’d still recommend getting in on registration in case plans work out to wind up at a Park Inn property (or near one, such that checking in and out makes sense regardless of whether you actually stay there).

  1. Has anyone got a confirmation that they actually registered for any of these promo’s. I’m registered for all three now. Thanks for the reminder Gary.

  2. @Iowan I tried 7/14-7/15, the last day for the promotion and it showed “The selected hotel location is currently not accepting reservations. Please check back in the future for this property, or enter another hotel destination.”

  3. I saw on another website {sorry, Gary} that the Schaumburg location has been sold and is being rebranded as a Best Western.

  4. Iowan: The Schaumburg location hasn’t been affiliated with Club Carlson (or Park Inn) since January, 2012.

  5. Did anyone/everyone get a confirmation email like the Radisson promo? I signed up 5 hours after the promo opened and got the “Congratulations! You are now registerd for the 1+1 Offer. To receive your 44,000 bonus…” on the screen but no email yet confirming it.

  6. @Teddy/@Vito – Thanks for your answers – much appreciated.

    It is going to be really difficult to make this work for us.

  7. Remarkably enough, I actually need to stay at MXP one night in June (Park Inn’s only Italian location), so my Park Inn night is going to be easier to get than my Radisson or Country Inn nights.

    I got emails for my Radisson and Country Inn registrations, but no email from Park Inn. Should I be worried?

  8. I got emails for my Radisson and Country Inn registrations, but no email from Park Inn. Should I be worried?

  9. My Park Inn email finally arrived this afternoon. I registered last night at around 1am PT. It states I will receive 44000 points.

    Does anyone know if Corporate codes can be applied for these bookings? I used my company’s corp code and the rate came out $20 cheaper.
