One Mile at a Time writes that some folks can earn 3X base points at Club Carlson hotels through March 31, 2015.  You don’t have to register for this promotion, but this is for targeted Club Carlson members only.

Normally you’d earn 20 points per dollar spent at Club Carlson hotels, but with this promotion you’ll earn 60 Club Carlson base points per dollar.

Plus, if you’re a US Bank Club Carlson cardholder, you get another 10X points per dollar spent.  So you’ll earn at total of 70X Club Carlson points per dollar spent.

Additionally, US Bank Club Carlson cardholders get free Gold status which gives you a 35% point bonus (an extra 7 points per $1)!  So you’ll earn a total of 77 Club Carlson points per dollar spent (60X base points + 10X points for Club Carlson cardholders + 7 points for Gold status)!

But it doesn’t stop there!  You can also stack this deal to get another 30,000 Club Carlson points when you stay 3 nights or more (or 15,000 points for 2 nights).

Yeah, starting April 1st of 2016 my preferred Visa cards to use at Costco will be the BankAmericard Travel Rewards Visa which can earn 2.625% toward travel if you qualify for Bank of America’s Preferred Rewards Platinum Honors status. (Or 2.25% with Platinum status or 1.875% with Gold status or 1.5% with no Preferred Rewards status.)

My second pick would be the Capital One Venture Visa for 2% redeemable toward travel.

You can currently use Visa cards (or any other major credit card) on the Costco website to purchase Costco cash cards with no fee. I’ve been doing this for the past few years to help get the sign up bonus on airline and hotel credit cards.
