Instant Club Carlson Gold Status for New Account Signups

Club Carlson is offering instant Gold status for new members of their program.

Club Carlson is the loyalty program for Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn, and Country Inns & Suites. They’ve been aggressive with big bonuses over the past year and a half, and just introduced a credit card that gets you second night free on your award redemptions.

This offer is targeted at Platinum and Gold members of the Jet Airways JetPrivilege program.

Gold status gets you:

  • 50% bonus Gold Points on your Club Carlson stays
  • 2,000 bonus points for online booking
  • Upgrades
  • Early Check In and Late Check Out on request, subject to availability

The offer is supposed to be available through March 31 but my bet is that it’s pulled more quickly than that.

Club Carlson is usually pretty generous with status matches do it over email and off of most other hotel statuses. But this is the first instant signup with status I’ve seen from them. Status is valid through February of 2014.

JetPrivilege Silver and Blue members are being marketed an instant Club Carlson Silver signup offer.

Silver status normally required 10 stays or 15 nights in a year, and Gold requires 20 stays or 35 nights. Their 30 stay/75 night ‘Concierge’ level isn’t one I’ve seen either instant status signup or status matches for.

Update: The offer requires using an address at signup that’s in the Asia Pacific region, although your address could presumably be changed later without deleterious affect.

  1. I now get am error message when submitting the form:

    The website was unable to complete your task. Please try again.

  2. Any clue how long their status matches work for? Got matched in Aug of ’12 and wondering if makes sense to open a new account at Gold level and transfer my points to the GOLD account to extend longevity of status…?

  3. Can also get Gold status by signing up for the Club Carlson card offer of 85,000 points (50,000 at signup and 35,000 after $2,500 spend in 90 days!
