Radisson Big Night Giveaway is BACK

Just checked into country inn Waldorf, MD. Nice so far. Welcome amenity in the room as a non elite member. The room could actually be cleaner but overall it'll down for 2 nights and 88k points.

Think I'm going to test the checkin and not check out theory. Just landed in JFK from Rome and have a reservation tonight at the radius on Philly, I live an hour away from Philly and feel like spending the night in my own bed.....going to swing by the hotel and check in and go home I think.

My wife has been traveling for work and stayed at a Country Inn and a Radisson and got both bonuses. She was going back to the same city with the Country Inn and I was debating how to get my number on her reservation. All I did was go into my Club Carlson acct, changed it to her name and made the reservation. She completed the stay and about three days later, all points including the 44k bonus posted to my account. I then changed the name on the account back to mine. Score!

Go with multiple accountholders, or just find a way to do different nights.
if my sister is going away and stay at radisson, can i book radisson one night room for her from my account, she checks in and i get the 50k points?

she is traveling and i am not.

thanks

Seconded. This is exactly the problem I was trying to solve.

(Please read the thread. It's all been covered so many times.)

If it's your account, and you want points, you have to be the room to check in.
If this is all happening in another city, and she's the only person who's going to be at the hotel, then it's her points or nobody's.

booking the first night at the radisson on her own account, booking the 2nd night at same hotel from my account but change the guest name to my sister's name and that way, i may get 2 55k=110k=points.
or i can book in her my niece's name since she is traveling with my sister but she is 19, so wonder if that's ok or not, she has a debit and chase freedom card

That's clearly against Club Carlson's Terms & Conditions.

I would kindly ask that you please keep your duplicity to yourself. Maybe if you do that, then in the future, others can continue to enjoy these good promotions from Club Carlson.

Just want to know if anyone received their 50k points bonus by using Cash and Points. It was $89 or 5000 pts plus $59. I definitely chose the cash and points.

EDIT- found the answer under hotels then Club Carlson...I am good to go
