Super Easy: Earn 3,000 Bonus Points With The Club Carlson App

Filed Under: Club Carlson, Free Miles/Points

At the moment Club Carlson has a super easy promotion to earn 3,000 bonus points through their app. I conservatively value Club Carlson points at ~0.3 cents each, so to me those points are worth ~$9. So I wouldn’t recommend this promotion if it weren’t super easy to take advantage of.

Club Carlson is offering 3,000 bonus points when you download their app and make your first purchase with one of their “Extras Partners” through it by December 31, 2017. Even if you don’t have the app, you should be able to take full advantage of this promotion in less than two minutes for a purchase of about a dollar. There’s no registration required, and no indication that the promotion is targeted.

First you’ll want to download the Club Carlson app.

Then you’ll want to log-in with your Club Carlson username and password.

Then at the bottom you’ll want to click on the “Extras” tab, where you’ll see the participating partners. Any sort of activity with any of Club Carlson’s partners will trigger the bonus.

It would seem to me like the easiest way to take advantage of this promotion is to just download a song on iTunes. So just look up your favorite artist and buy a song.

I downloaded “Treat You Better” by Shawn Mendes, natch. The only surprising part there should be that I don’t have the song yet. And that’s it. Once you’re confirmed the purchase Club Carlson should automatically record it, and bonus points should post in 7-10 days.

There’s no need to go back to the Club Carlson app — since you clicked over to iTunes (or whatever partner) from the Club Carlson app, that’s enough to record the purchase.

Taking advantage of this promotion should also help reset the expiration date of your points, since they otherwise expire after 24 months of inactivity.

(Tip of the hat to Doctor Of Credit)

  1. Hmm, I still see nothing listed when selecting Extras tab. Never saw there anything. Even though the t&c don’t mention any restrictions this may not be available everywhere.

    So maybe super easy but at the same time impossible depending on where you are.

  2. Thanks Lucky. I went ahead and bought an iTunes song. But is there any confirmation you get on the Club Carlson App that it went through via the App? No email confirmation from Club Carlson at all?

  3. @ Earl Lee — I didn’t get any sort of confirmation, so I guess we’ll just have to hope for the best, as we followed the instructions.

  4. I don’t see iTunes either, though Groupon is an option and I know there are some $1 groupons. I might end up using their offer instead, as I buy my groceries there anyway and 6 points/dollar isn’t too bad, I think.

  5. I had iTunes. I’m playing “Despacito” for my office-mate….”what’s that?”….”that’s the sound of 3000 Club Carlson points”….sloooowly!

  6. Another good option is to buy a meal on and combine with $5 off $10 Amex offers (have it on all of my 50+ cards and authorized user cards so been switching off cards each day for lunch). Bought $10 of food today through app for $5, should get 3,000 points plus usual 8 points per dollar spent.

  7. Hi. Just did it. With a song in iTunes. The promotion said there is no limit to the number of points ( when I clicked on the i tab ). Does this mean we can do it more than once ? Anyone????

  8. @Christine -My email says ” During the Promotion Period, Club Carlson members may earn 3,000 bonus points (“Promotion Bonus”) for the first transaction consumed with any of the participating merchant partners. Members may receive the Promotion Bonus only once during the Promotion Period. “

  9. Made an iTunes purchase but points awarded yet. Hopefully this works! Kindly report back if your 3,000 points are awarded.

  10. From the T&C on the Extras page, “The Promotion Bonus will be added to the member’s account by no later than February 1, 2018.”

    So keep an eye out for it, but don’t hold your breath. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  11. I live chatted with them today as I’ve seen the base points post on Oct 28 for itunes purchase on Oct 24, but not the 3,000 bonus. Agent referred me to promotion T&Cs at which state bonus will be posted no later that Feb 1, 2018. So sounds like this is manual/bulk and not automatic.
