This offer is valid until November 10, 2012. The price of a Club Carlson Gold Point purchased using this offer is 4.67 cents each. You can access this offer here.
The purchase process is very straightforward as it is handled by Points.com, which does these for most other hotels/airlines. You are shown the various number of points that you can purchase and the bonus amount associated with this offer.
You are then confirmed the total.
I don’t think that this is terrific offer considering all the stay bonuses that Club Carlson has been offering lately. It was easy to earn 50K+ points on a $100 stay. These can be useful if you don’t have any points but are planning to stay at an affiliated property. Some of them are offering Points & Cash awards and lower category hotels might be cheaper to book using purchased points than paying.
