Club Carlson is offering direct status matches up to the Gold-level in their program. I have previously covered Starwood Preferred Guest, Hilton HHonors, Marriott, and Hyatt Gold Passport status match procedures. If you are Rezidor shareholder, you qualify for Gold status as a shareholder benefit.
Club Carlson matches to their Silver or Gold level only. The highest status with the Club Carlson is Concierge, but this is, at least officially, off-limits when it comes to matches status. Club Carlson matches Hilton, Hyatt, InterContinental Hotels Group/Priority Club, Marriott and Starwood status.
Here’s what you need to do
1. Open a Club Carlson account if you don’t already have one.
2. Take a screenshot from your Hilton, Hyatt, Priority Club, Marriott, or Starwood online account statement that shows your status.
3. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a copy of the screen shot, your Club Carlson account number, and a few words that you would like to get matched to Gold status with their program.
You should hear back from Club Carlson normally within one business day. I emailed my request during the weekend and heard back from them on Monday.
As you can see from the email I sent, I mistakenly requested a Platinum match. Club Carlson doesn’t have a Platinum status, but only Silver, Gold, or Concierge.
