Via Loyalty Traveler, Club Carlson Gold elite members (and therefore US Bank Club Carlson Visa cardholders!) are eligible for great deals at certain Club Carlson hotels in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

I’ll show you how to buy 1 night and get the 2nd free!  And how to buy 2 nights and get the next 2 nights at no cost!

Get Free Nights in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Like the Park Inn Prague, If You Have the US Bank Club Carlson Visa!

This is a terrific deal!  I’ll show you how it works, how to get the most from it, and what to watch out for.

What’s the Deal?

Link:   Club Carlson 2 for 1 Promotion

Link:   Club Carlson 4 for 2 Promotion

Link:   Club Carlson Elite Status Benefits

Club Carlson has 2 exclusive offers if you have Gold elite status with them.

Because the US Bank Club Carlson card offers Club Carlson Gold status as a perk, if you have the card, you are eligible for both offers!

Club Carlson Gold Elite Members Can Book a Special 2 for 1 (or 4 for 2) Rate. If You Have the US Bank Club Carlson Visa, You Can Get the Offer, Too!

This is effectively a 50% discount if the free nights are the same price as the paid nights.

The Radisson Royal Beke Hotel in Budapest Is Included in the Promotion. Pay Just ~$90 for 2 Nights (After Taxes)!

The Radisson Blu Beke Hotel in Budapest is a participating hotel.  I found 2 nights in November for ~$90 after taxes.

Taxes Add ~$16 to the Rate, But ~$45 for Each Night in Budapest Is Still a Great Price!

Even with taxes included, this can be a terrific deal!

I also found dates at the Park Inn Prague, another participating hotel.

Because you get the last 2 nights of a 4-night stay free, all you’ll pay is ~$168, or ~$42 a night.

4 Nights in Prague Cost ~$168 After 2 Nights Free

And because this is a paid rate, you can earn Club Carlson Gold points.  Even better, you can combine this with other promotions and discounts to earn more points!

Save Over ~$400 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin When You Book 4 Nights and Get 2 of Them for Free

A few upscale hotels are included.  And you can save hundreds of dollars with the promotional rates!

For example, you can save ~$416 dollars at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin.  A 4-night stay would then average out to only ~$104 per night instead of over $200 per night.

The Radisson Blu Saga Hotel in Reykjavik is also participating.  Rates there start at ~$236 per night, so you can save a lot of money if you find open dates!

Be Sure To Know the Terms of the Deal

To get the promotional rate, you must book at least 2 days in advance.  And you can book up to 2 rooms.  But you must occupy 1 of them.

For both promotions, the dates must be consecutive and include a Friday or Saturday.

With the 2 for 1 Promotional Rate, It’s Possible to Check in on Saturday and Get Sunday Free

For the 2 for 1 promotion, it’s possible to check in on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, and get a free night on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

And for the 4 for 2 promotion, the terms say you must:

  • Check in on Wednesday, and get Friday and Saturday free
  • Check in on Thursday, and get Saturday and Sunday free

Be sure to check your dates to see what comes up.  This is an easy way get a 50% discount on hotel stays!

About the US Bank Club Carlson Visa

Link:   Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card

With the US Bank Club Carlson card, you get 50,000 Club Carlson points after your 1st purchase.  And you’ll earn another 35,000 Club Carlson points after spending $2,500 on purchases within the 1st 90 days of opening your account.

Other perks include:

  • 10X Club Carlson points per $1 spent at Club Carlson hotels
  • 5X Club Carlson points per $1 spent on everything else
  • 40,000 Club Carlson point annual bonus when you renew your card
  • Club Carlson Gold elite status

Are There Drawbacks?

There is NOT a list of participating hotels, so you’ll have to check each hotel before you know whether or not you’ll get a discount.

For example, I checked the Radisson Blu Style Hotel in Vienna, but they are NOT participating in the promotions.

The Radisson Blu Style Hotel in Vienna Is NOT Participating in These Deals. You Have to Check Each Hotel Individually to Find Out

There is also NOT an expiration date on these promotions, so there is NO way of knowing when they’ll end.  So if you have a hotel stay in mind, book it sooner rather than later.

You should be able to cancel it at a later date if you change your mind!  Be sure to review each hotel’s cancellation policy to be sure.

A stay must include a Friday or Saturday for both promotions.  And the 4 for 2 promotion requires a Wednesday or Thursday check-in.  So if you aren’t planning a weekend trip, you won’t be able to take part.

Bottom Line

Club Carlson has special weekend rates at hotels in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, for its Gold elite members.  And if you have the US Bank Club Carlson card, you’re automatically eligible to book discounted rooms!

You can either book 2 nights and get 1 night free, or book 4 nights and get 2 nights free.  With both promotions, the last nights are free.

You’ll have to search each hotel individually to find out if it’s included in the promotion.  And there is NO expiration date on either promotion in the terms and conditions, so book soon if you find a participating hotel where you want to stay.

Let me know if you find a good deal!

  1. Thank you for sharing, I think it’s a wonderful post.
    I’ll definitely try this out on my next vacation.
