Club Carlson: Extend your Stay, Earn 30K

This is another of our No Credit, No Problem series of posts that you can do with no special credit needed!

Club Carlson has announced their latest promotion and it’s pretty nice!  Now through March 31, 2015, for each 2 night eligible stay you will get 15K bonus gold points and for each 3+ night stay you will get 30K bonus gold points.  Most paid rates will count as eligible stays but some deeply discounted rates such as Friends and Family rates may not apply.Club Carson Extend Your StayYou could consider this a 7.5K per night bonus for 2 night stays and 10K per night bonus for 3 night stays which is pretty awesome since for just 9000 points you can get a free night at a property like this Radisson Blu in El Quseir, Egypt.RadissonElQuseirThese bonus points are in addition to the 20 points per dollar you get for hotel spending and 10 more points per dollar if you have the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa. Since this promotion can be earned multiple times, the optimal strategy would be to split up your stays into either 3 or 2 night reservations so you can get 60K bonus points from a 6 night stay instead of just 30K.  There is really no reason not to sign up and it just takes a few seconds to enter your email address or Club Carlson number. So click here and get to it and start enjoying bonus points!

I am a big IHG fan.  From their awesome PointBreaks rooms for only 5,000 a night to their Big Win Promotions where I earned 132,000 and 101,000 points respectively, IHG keeps giving me so many points I can’t even use them all!  I am going to complete the Into the Nights promotion as well before the end of the year and get 2 free nights at any IHG property in the world!  I have my sights on the Intercontinental Bora Bora. 🙂Intercontinental Bora Bora Continue reading “Earn 50K+ IHG Points with the IHG Set Your Sights Promotion”

IHG Pointbreaks are back for stays through 2/28/15!

IHG Pointbreaks are one of the best values in hotel awards at only 5,000 points a night.  I love this program and was able to stay 15 nights free on my recent China trip using Pointbreaks rooms at amazing hotels like this Intercontinental in Hangzhou.intercontinental Hangzhou

IHG just announced which hotels are on the latest list which will become bookable Monday, November 24 at around 8:30 AM EST.  It isn’t a bad list and I picked a few of the properties to highlight here that looked nice to me.  Any of these are available for just 5,000 points a night and if you want to know how to book them read this article we wrote about how to book an IHG Pointbreaks room. But act fast!  The good properties such as the Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza hotels sell out of 5000 point rooms within a few hours usually.

Double up on Hilton Points with the latest promotion!

This is another of our No Credit, No Problem series of posts that you can do with no special credit needed!

Hilton has released their latest promotion for the period of November 1, 2014 – February 28, 2014. Don’t think, just sign up now to double up on Hilton points then forget about it.Hilton Double UpAs you can see this promotion is for double points starting with your second stay.  This promotion pales in comparison to the other ones offered such as the Into the Nights IHG Promotion and the Club Carlson 3000 point Mobile Booking Bonus. But if you have stays planned at Hiltons then why not get double points!  Since it is double points after the second stay, if you have a long stay planned (for example a week at a Hilton somewhere), it might make sense to do a quick one night stay somewhere before it so you get double points for the larger trip.

In any case, click here and sign up for this promotion.  You literally have nothing to lose and it will take less time than it took to read this article 🙂
