Club Carlson Rebrands as Radisson Rewards

Club Carlson Rebrands as Radisson Rewards
Caroline Lupini

Club Carlson has announced a fairly major rebranding of their rewards program. The program formerly known as Club Carlson is now called Radisson Rewards.

With this name change, quite a few other things are changing as well. Here’s a summary of everything you should be aware of with this rebranding.

Lower Elite Qualification Threshold

You won’t need as many nights to qualify for every single level of status with Radisson Rewards compared with Club Carlson.

  • Base Level: Club Carlson Red –> Radisson Rewards Club
  • Club Carlson Silver (15 Nights/10 Stays) –> Radisson Rewards Silver (9 Nights/6 Stays)
  • Club Carlson Gold (35 Nights/20 Stays) –> Radisson Rewards Gold (30 Nights/20 Stays)
  • Club Carlson Concierge (75 Nights/30 Stays) –> Radisson Rewards Platinum (60 Nights/30 Stays)
These elite status requirements are being retroactively applied to 2017 stays, so don’t be surprised if you see your status level change!

Fewer Upgrades for Golds

 
Previously, Club Carlson Gold members would be eligible to receive a room upgrade to a higher category room. Under the new program, Radisson Rewards Gold members can be upgraded to a “preferred room location” while you’ll need to be a Radisson Rewards Platinum member to get upgraded to the next room category.

More Free Nights from the Credit Cards

 
With the new spend on the Radisson Rewards Visa cards, you can earn up to three free nights at Radisson hotels each year. One free night will be provided for each $10,000 in spend you complete on the card. Like before, these free nights are still only valid at Radisson hotels within the United States (which makes them quite a bit less valuable, in my opinion). This is in addition to the 40,000 point renewal bonus.

Overall

 
Overall, while this is a fairly major change to the Club Carlson Rewards program, there really don’t seem to be too many negatives.
What do you think about the change from Club Carlson to Radisson Rewards?

    The main way that it affected me was with my login that was saved on my browser. It no longer worked once they changed the website name, and my browser wouldn’t save the login from the normal login popup (when I retyped it upon logging in). I had to rummage around to find a NON-POPUP login place just to get my browser to save my login for the new website. (The new website accepts the same login as the old website did, but if you have your browser set to plug in your login automatically, it doesn’t know to use your login from a different website because the website suddenly changed names.) I intentionally make my logins different for different websites and have my browser save them (protected under a master browser password), and so I have to go through extra steps when a website renames itself like this. I had only 4 nights/2 stays at Club Carlson properties last year, and don’t expect much more this year, so the lowered status requirements are not likely to make a difference to me.
