While the signup page doesn’t mention the bonus, Club Carlson is going to award 500 points to people who sign up for their free ‘Club Carlson for Travel Arrangers’ program by May 31. Points are supposed to post within 14 days of enrollment.
The idea of the program is you’re booking hotels for other people, they’ll reward you for booking Club Carlson hotels. I’ve often wondered why more programs don’t directly reward travel arrangers (as opposed to companies) in the mold of the 1970s-era Southwest Secretaries Program.
Get 10 Gold Points per U.S. dollar for eligible hotel bookings you make for your business travelers. It’s easy – we track your bookings and award points to your account once travel is complete.
I value Club Carlson points at $0.004 apiece so this is worth $2. But it also resets the expiration of points in your account.
Frequent Flyer Bonuses writes,
The new program reminds us of IHG’s program, SPG Pros and others where you earn points for arranging travel bookings for others.
In the email I received it states that I’ll earn 500 Gold Points just for enrolling. It seems this is not targeted and open to anyone who enrolls by May 31st.
