4,500 FREE Gold Points for Club Carlson Sign-Up

Offer:
First-time members of the Club Carlson program (Radisson, Country Inn & Suites, Park Inn) can receive a sign-up bonus of 4,500 Club Carlson points.  To be eligible, simply use promo code ERWD2012, when signing up using this link.

Terms & Conditions:
Per the terms and conditions, this is for first time members, though I have no idea if you could sign up with a different address…?  Not that I would ever try that of course.

The offer is valid through May 31, and the points should post within 6-8 weeks.

Analysis
:
What, you say are 4,500 Club Carlson points worth?  In short, about half-way to a free stay, as a Category 1 property (like a Country Inn & Suites) will run you 9,000 points.  For more expensive properties, like the Radisson Blue Chicago, award redemptions are up to 50,000 points per night.  In large or fairly aspirational markets, this beats the heck out of paying a couple hundred dollars in cash.

Award Charts:

Their standard award chart is included as a reference below:

They also have a Points + Cash Award Chart:

So whether  you are looking to cap off points for an award redemption, or just trying to be frugal the next time you go on vacation, this is is a good step along that path.
