If it earns points then it should qualify for the promotion.

Thumbs up

Club Carlson just sent me an email to confirm my Park Inn 1+1 promotion. So I don't think they will take the points back now and I really hope they give me another bonus when I actually stay at the hotel

Basically, I got the points on May 31st and my stay will be on Jun 14

The hotel is Park Inn by Radisson Hotel and Water Park Albuquerque NM
I detailed it in this post. I think it might be a loophole or error from their part. If someone is willing to test it and report the results
I used Cash and Point option

This is clearly a lame attempt to drive traffic to your blog...and the fact the posting says the stay was for May 27-May 28 seriously questions your claim (it's not hard to make a reservation take a screenshot and then cancel it). I hope I'm wrong but there's still better ways to get traffic!

I don't think there is a good way to show that I never set foot in Albuquerque or even New Mexico. If this is false information, I could have done better in Houston or Dallas which are close to me then in New Mexico (12 hours away from Austin)
I live in Austin and do my 9-5 jobs and been in the office since then. As I said there was an error with their IT or something like that therefore they might think I stayed there on that day.
I can even show you my flight on Southwest to Albuquerque from Jun 14 to 17 if you wish on PM
I will delete my second post since you think that it is to drive traffic to my blog
Thanks

club carlson advance book but pay if canceled?

my sister and her 2 teen kids are looking to visit world disney in florida so i checked the club carlson 50k or 44k promo but she is not sure if she will get those days off from her work yet. so depending on the word from her employer. if yes they are going on few days vacation there.

since they are not 100% sure to go there,, i checked for some rooms but it looks like there if cancelation fee?
I checked for some rooms there today and they all show

Make sure you click "View all rates" on the right side, this will show you refundable rates. Some of those rates have restrictions (AAA members) that you might not qualify for. Beware.

Also check this thread:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hotel...ted-dates.html

The 30% off rate is refundable.

If you book a advance pay non refundable rate you won't get your money back. They give you 20% off and you take the risk. You can Resv. a refundable room for a higher price.

Not that this is new information at this point, but just wanted to share another example where I did not check-out in person and the points posted just fine. Gotta love all these easy points!

Why not, as long as it's still within the time frame of the promotion and your Club Carlson number is on the reservation?
