Question on the Club Carlson card. Is the ‘free night’ on any award stay? Or any paid stay? Or both?
US Bank Club Carlson Card
Here are some of the other benefits that come with this card:
- 10X points at Club Carlson hotels
- 5X points on all other spending
- 40,000 point annual bonus
- Free Gold Status
- Get 1 free night when you book 2 or more consecutive award nights
The $75 annual fee is NOT waived.
How Can You Use the Free Night?
The free night can only be earned on award stays, NOT paid stays.
This benefit alone makes the Club Carlson card worth keeping because it means all of Jill’s Club Carlson points can be worth up to 50% more (if she books her stays 2 nights at a time)!
The 2 or more award nights must be consecutive.
Jill should also keep in mind that she will only get up to 1 free night per award stay. So if she uses her points for 4 award nights, she will still only get 1 free night. And if she books 2 award nights, she will still get 1 free night.
That’s because you get your points returned to you for the last night of any award booking of 2 or more nights.
The best feature of the US Bank Club Carlson card is that whenever you book 2 or more nights with points, you get your points returned to you for the last night of your stay.
However, this perk is only good for award nights and NOT paid stays.
To earn the free night your 2 award nights must be consecutive and you can NOT earn more than 1 free night per stay.
Thanks for your question, Jill!
