Unfortunately, the page is NOT live, it simply has a counter on it telling us it will be live in 8 days.

There is another thread about this already.

With a maximum of one award night per account, it was pretty easy to register for this one. People were reporting success several days after registration started.

I don't think bloggers are to blame for anything here. Those registrations were available for quite a while last time after they were first offered. With 100,000 slots, I'm not even going to stay up until midnight this time. What's the consensus on the value of Radisson (Club Carlson) points? I don't know if I'll be anywhere that has one during that window, and it's obvious that this time the account holder has to be physically present at check-in and check-out. I'm wondering if it's worth planning a special trip or not (I don't expect an answer to the question regarding my own options, just an idea how the pros rate these points).

I am certainly no pro, but I did just book 5 nights at the Radisson resort in Aruba for 250k CC points for second week in January. Rack rate was $575+

Here's a good article on the value of Carlson Gold Points and high-value redemptions.

Also they just confirmed you can participate in 3 separate promos.

We planned our summer vacation specifically around last years promo. Staying in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris. These hotels would have cost well over $3600. With the Big Night Giveaway promo we received over 400k points for just over $360. Don't let anyone fool you...this promo is huge...take advantage of it and go spend a week in Europe.

I second this. I'm spending a week in Prague in August with 90,000 points from last years promo. So happy to see it back again this year!

if anybody has an upcoming stay at a park inn anywhere, i'd gladly pay $50 toward it if you book it from my account. i know most people would value having the points for themselves more than that, but if you have two upcoming stays or would rather have the $50, message me.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this promo (just like the last time) is only valid for a stay at a Radisson, not just any Carlson property...

Good stuff. I see that it definitely can be worth it if you do it right. And I do have the two other brands within reasonable distance. Count me in!
