Club Carlson is offering an extremely lucrative promotion at the moment. Club Carlson members can earn 7,500 bonus AAdvantage miles after two stays at Radisson hotels between September 15 and December 15, 2014. Registration is required by October 15, 2014.


Bonus miles should post four to six weeks after December 15, 2014, and you can only earn the bonus once per AAdvantage membership number (so presumably you can only earn it once per Club Carlson number as well, since you can only register one AAdvantage number per Club Carlson account).

In order to qualify you have to book an “eligible stay,” which is a stay of at least one night at a rate that’s eligible for Gold Points accrual (that means award stays don’t qualify).

Now, the promotion page does reference “participating properties,” though Mommy Points Tweeted Club Carlson, and they confirmed that all Radisson properties are “participating:”


This is a heck of a promotion, especially given how good Club Carlson’s earnings rates are to begin with. Best I can tell this bonus is in addition to any other points you’d earn. You don’t even have to earn miles for your stay — as long as you register for the promotion with your AAdvantage number you’ll qualify.

So you should be able to combine this with the promotion for triple Club Carlson points on weekdays, as well as 3,000 bonus Club Carlson points for making reservations through the mobile app.

Theoretically if you make two stays at a property that’s participating in the triple points promotion and have the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card, you’re earning 77 Gold Points per dollar spent at Club Carlson properties, plus 3,000 bonus points per stay booked through their app, plus 7,500 AAdvantage miles. They’re basically paying you to stay at one of their hotels!

Now I can’t guarantee these offers can all be combined, though I don’t see anything in the terms and conditions suggesting they wouldn’t be.

  1. > you’re earning 77 Gold Points per dollar spent at Club Carlson properties

    How do you get 77 Gold Points per dollar I wonder?

  2. FYI. If you use the triple code you don’t see other rates (only the triple business rate). I got a $99 48 rate (still same refundable terms) rather than a $149.99 rate with the triple code. If it’s not your money I guess you can let your conscience be your guide.

  3. Here are my numbers. I am leaving out the triple points, because the rate was too high compared to others.


    Assume $80 room. 3,000 for app booking + 1,600 (20 x rate for regular points) + 800 (10 x rate for credit card points) + 560 (Gold bonus of 35%) would give 5,960. This would be 75 points per dollar.


    It seems to me that to get only 77 using the triple points it would have to be a really high rate. With an $80 rate and triple points it would be 114 points per dollar. The rate would have to be really high to get as low as 77 with triple points in play.

    This all assumes a one night stay and ignores tax. Remember that if you have the credit card you are Gold level.

  4. It just clicked that the 77 points per dollar is if you DON’T factor in the app booking bonus (just as he said if I had read more carefully and caught it in the first reading).

    20 regular points per dollar + 40 extra points for triple rate + 10 point for credit card + 7 point Gold bonus = 77 points per dollar

  5. Thanks for this post – perfect timing. I already had 2 stays booked with the triple biz rate on the app for this coming week and just got the AA promo confirmation email for 7500 miles. Along with 4 Hilton stays under the triple points promo and 2x rate packages this is going to be a lucrative few weeks.

    @andrewleen Hi! Yes the points plus cash rate is eligible for this promotion. Have a wonderful night! – Tim

  7. Ben, do you know if it is stackable with “7,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you complete two Radisson stays” promotion?

    I was able to register for both promos…

  8. Great tip! Just booked my first Radisson, Chandler, Arizona, for next week at $85 via the app. 3000 points for using the app + 5100 triple points (60×85), plus half of the AA promotion done. Nice score, me!
