To celebrate spring and summer travel, I have a Golden Giveaway from Club Carlson (SM) Premier Rewards Visa® Signature card. Oh, it’s pretty suhweet! Read on…

Now that my crazy-busy spring is winding down, I have time to breathe and think about summer vacation. It’s a time when I take those hotel and airline points I’ve been accumulating through frequent traveler reward programs from business travel and turn them into relaxing vacation getaways. I’m hoping to escape the Florida summer heat and humidity in cooler climes.

One of those programs I belong, yet admit to not fully utilizing yet, is Club Carlson, the global rewards program for the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. Members receive fantabulous benefits at more than 1,000 Carlson Rezidor hotels worldwide, including Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu®, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn® by Radisson, and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson (SM) hotels.

Called Gold Points®, members can redeem them for award nights with no blackout dates on standard rooms (how awesome is that?). In addition to redeeming Gold Points for hotel rooms, members can redeem them for merchandise gift cards, prepaid cards, for savings on vacation packages, as well as for miles in more than 20 airline programs.

Every travel hack knows enrollment in a frequent travel reward program is only a piece of the puzzle in earning free upgrades, hotel stays and flights. Using reward credit cards wisely (as in, paying them off each month) is another way, and perhaps a better and quicker way to earn those freebies and perks.

The Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® card is one of those cards enabling members to earn a free night faster plus receive the benefits of Elite status. Highlights include:

Bonus Award Nights
You always need a vacation from your vacation, right? This nice bonus will give you an extra night to extend your vacation. Exclusively for cardmembers, when Gold Points® are redeemed for two or more consecutive award nights, the last night is free.

10 Points Per Dollar
Don’t mess around with one to one or one to three dollars to points ratio, this card lets members earn 10 points per dollar on eligible purchases at participating Carlson Rezidor hotels and earn five points per dollar EVERYWHERE else Visa is accepted.

Up to 85,000 Bonus Gold Points to Start
There’s no messing around here, this is some serious stuff. Cardmembers can easily earn up to 85,000 Bonus Golf Points off the bat by receiving 50,000 Gold Points after your first purchase, plus, earn 35,000 points after spending $2,500 on the card within the first 90 days.

More Point Points with Annual Renewal
The bonus points continue with 40,000 each year after you renew the card and pay the low annual fee.

You’re Gold!
Members automatically earn Gold Elite Status once the card is used. Already a Gold Elite member? Then receive 15 qualifying nights toward Concierge Elite Status.
