My idea of a nice "surprise" would be for the clubcarlson "rewards" program to come out of mothballs. When was the last time they had a promotion dimly, even remotely reminiscent of past promos for paid stays? (the kind of promos that would have the best bloggers jumping over each other to sing their praises) 😉

Ah well, I do still have the business version of the CC card.... even have a stash of earned points with it. (that 5x spend/$1 compelling, plus the annual free night after $10k) BUT, not a lot of places left (at least here in the US) where I'd want to use such points or free nights.... Still dreaming of Rad Blu Tunisia, .... if I can get up the nerve
