Club Carlson has 25% off select property award discount promo called Power Points for stays in the Americas between September 1 and November 30, 2014.
You must use promotional code POWERPTS at the time of doing the reservation to bring up the promotional rates (I didn’t succeed with this).
You can access this offer on Club Carlson’s website here.
Note that the list of participating properties for this award discount offer is rather limited. There are only three participating properties in the entire state of California.
When I tried to search for the discounted rates, they didn’t seem to come up on the award search. It could be that the discount is given at the later stage of the booking process.
This can work for those that happen to be traveling to any of the destinations that have these discounted award rates available and the award point requirement is not out of whack.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
The Power Points Promotion (“Promotion”) is subject to availability and to these Terms and Conditions and the Club Carlson Terms and Conditions.
Members of Club Carlson who book the Promotion rate using the Promotion ID and make a reservation between September 1, 2014 and November 30, 2014 (“Promotional Period”) for an Award Night will receive 25% off the standard points required for a free Award Night. To be eligible, the member must have the appropriate amount of Points in their Club Carlson account. Points cannot be combined from another account to book this rate. The Promotion is valid at participating Carlson Rezidor hotels in North, South and Central America.
