United Club Passes Giveaway for Club Carlson Ideas

I have 2 United Club passes expiring 6/30/15 to give away.

Please share what Club Carlson hotels you have booked ahead of the big devaluation, or those you recommend others book. Deadline for comment is Sunday, May 31 at 23:59 EDT. That should leave 1 last hour to book before the Club Carlson changeover, reported to be at 23:59 CDT, though I wouldn’t time it that close.

Comment email field must contain valid email address for potential winners to receive notification. A potential winner will be selected at random and notified by email on Monday, June 1 and posted here. A valid email address in the comment form is required to notify the potential winner who must respond to accept by Tuesday, June 2 at 23:59 EDT. Available to US entrants/addresses only.

I used my CC points to book a room in Austin for the music festival. There are 2 weekends of music. The Radisson on the water is walking distance to the park where the show is. I think that’s an excellent use of points.

Actually, I have never used Club Carlson points, so I can’t really answer the question. Overall, it is unfortunate airlines and hotels are making their “currency” less valuable….

Kim

I have bookings in Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Salzburg and Mexico City. Not sure I’ll even use them. Still have 50,000 points and trying to figure out how to use it.

Absolutely suggest the Radisson Aruba. Stayed twice this past Winter on points for a total of 18 nights and was upgraded to a suite both times. I’ve booked Aruba for one last stay in February, 2016. Was told the property is being sold so we hope our 8 night reservation is honored if sold. Well maintained property & the best location. We also booked 10 nights @ the Radisson, Grenada over Thanksgiving. This will be our 1st stay so I do not know what to expect. Based on what I’ve read about Grenada, Grand Anse beach where the Radisson is… Read more »

Radisson SLC. Not special, but out of necessity. I asked for a room facing the airfield and was disappointed to learn that none of them do.

Samuel

Definitely recommend booking the Radisson Blu 1919 Reykjavik before it becomes Category 7.

Charlotte

I was in Scotland last summer and the Radisson Blu in Edinburgh is in a wonderful location- right on the Royal Mile. Highly recommend location- had a Business class room which was OK and breakfast was a nice spread. Good service and decent bar. Walking distance from train station. Rooms would have gone for about $280 a night when I was there so 50K for 2 nights was a good deal.

I’m staying right now on the danube river in budapest – awesome location across from the Parliament amazing views
also london 2 nights in 2 different hotels 4 nights in bratislava and still have 300,000 plus to still book

One of my favorites is definitely the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel im Svalbard.
It’s utilitarian at best, but what more could you want beyond functional blackout shades when the sun does circles in the sky?

I don’t think I’d be able to use the club passes but I’ve booked a few nights at Mexico City Radisson flamingos so my son and I can attend the formula 1 race there this fall. Trying to book a few more for Europe currently. I also really like the run down blu in Rome. Seems odd that they are moving it up a catagory.

Nick O

I was going to book at the Radisson Blu Es in Rome, but paid rates aren’t bad (nor are they bad for a few other hotels in Rome for my dates). Going with Radisson Martinique. The front desk said the BOGO for credit card holders wasn’t a thing last summer so I “paid” for the second night of my reservation at check-in and then immediately called Club Carlson and it was taken care of in 4 minutes of hold time.

Two U.S. Beach choices in case you can’t see overseas that far ahead : Radisson Suites Melbourne Beach, FL and Country Inn and Suites VA Beach. Both are solid all-oceanfront properties perfect for a weekend getaway.

Radisson Aruba in July using Southwest points and companion pass to get there, and will book a German property before the day is over. Can really use United passes as it is the only domestic club at Orlando.

I got the US Bank/Club Carlson card in February as part of me first getting in to this hobby. Because I didn’t know US Bank was ultra sensitive to other inquiries, I got denied. After calling and saying that the other inquiries were kind of accidental (not all entirely correct), I was approved…for the platinum version. Darnit! I had decided to try to go London, Paris, and Rome, and to try to stay as much as possible using Radisson Blu. I was hell bent on maximizing it despite my initial failure. I did the minimum spending and got the full… Read more »

6 nights in Vancouver BC – can’t remember which but a Radisson

4 nights in Johannesburg
Looking forward to it!

Booked 2 rooms for 2 nights each at each of the 2 Radissons in Panama City for October, 2016 and 1 room for 4 night at the Radisson Fort George in Belize City. Still have some points left, but nothing on the horizon to use them. Already had this summer’s vacation booked, including 4 nights in 2 rooms at the Radisson Blu Athens and 2 nights in 2 rooms at the Radisson Blu Bosphorous in Istanbul. Also already have the fall vacation booked to New York but have Hilton and IHG free nights that had to be used before they… Read more »

I booked the May Fair and the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire in London for two nights each in late June and the Radisson Blu Royal Dublin in early July. It’s the first time my wife and I have left the U.S. together, and we thought we’d do it the right way. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that we got over $2600 in value for 184,000 Carlson points.
