Country Inns & Suites Triple Points Promotion – Not a Bad Deal

After seeing lackluster summer promotions from Hilton, Starwood, and Hyatt this year, I’m glad for one that seems a little more “rewarding.”

Country Inns & Suites’ Triple the Fun promotion is awarding triple points this summer:

  • Earn 60 Gold Points per dollar spent (20 standard points + 40 bonus points) on eligible stays of two or more nights between June 1 and September 1, 2014.
  • Must register and book by May 31, 2014.

Why do I think this is a rewarding promotion? Points are redeemable at Club Carlson properties (including RadissonPark Plaza, and Park Inn):

Where an award night starts at 9,000 points:

So $150 spent on a hotel stay (that you’d need anyway, optimally) would earn enough points for an award night.

Granted, the Category 1 properties available for 9,000 points are pretty basic (as are Country Inn & Suites properties in general), but if they line up with your travel plans then a free night for the cost of another stay you’d have bought anyway is a good deal.

Additional tips

Potentially earn 1,000 points by following Club Carlson on Twitter. This promotion was initially limited to the first 15,000 participants but, as of this writing, I no longer see a cap so perhaps it still works.

And if you have a Club Carlson co-branded credit card, paying with it will additionally earn 6 to 10 points/$ (depending on which card). Otherwise, try to pay with a card that awards bonus points on hotel or travel purchases.
