Yes I did - both at a Radisson and a Country Inn (booked as 5000pts & cash), Bonus points for both days were posted after just 4 days..

Btw.. I'm Gold there and the Country Inn had a nice welcome present as well as an upgrade to a Jacuzzi Suite in mind for me.. whreas the Radisson had just nada..

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.
So you say that if she gets the points in her acc. and transfers them everything is just fine whereas saving time for everyone is.. well.. what exactly did you say ?

CC allows points transfer within accounts, it is free and it is done IMMEDIATELY. All you have to do is call give them your acct # how many points you want to transfer and the acct # to transfer to. There is thread on FT, on the hotels section describing all benefits and details of Club Carlson. I think this thread should finally be merged there.

To provide yet another data point. Stayed last week at a Country Inn. Did not check out in person - just left in the morning without stopping by the front desk. My bonus points and the hotel stay posted about 3 days later.

Because with all this crap they are going to. With all the greed on this I suspect that if we see this promo again it will be different.

Folks are reporting that it takes about 4 days for points to show up. I would wait a bit

So the bonus points post separate than the stay points? Because my stay points posted.

I have received my points and bonus points from this stay.

Ihave registered for this promo and have my "stays" coming this weekend.

I want to be CLEAR with this promo so can someone or multiple people please confirm:

- You DO NOT need to CHECK OUT to get the points. ( i know the official terms say otherwise)? I have a booking and my spouse does at the same hotel. We are going to check in seperatley go to our assigned rooms seperately and leave. Any problems with that?

-Also 2 stays at radissons= 100,000 then an additional stay at park inn= 44,000. Total 144,000. I would like to get this to an even 150,000 for 3 nights at the best radisson blu. So I status matched to silver. I should be getting some additional CC points for online bookings right?? i thought i heard something about that? How much for that?? Also if room rates for all 3 rooms are in the $80 range how many points do i get for that?

Thanks!!!

No need to check out, however, you do NEED to check in. If concerned with checking out, just call front desk. I myself, along with many others post in this thread hace confirmed that you do not need to check out in person.

I did not know that you could double up on points with the same account. Promo wa offering 50k for Radisson, 44k for CI and PI, for a total of 138k points. I dont recall seeing others commenting on receiving double points on same account for 2 separate Radisson stays

1. Check in.
2. Actually use the room.

That's all.

Wife and I both completed 1 night stays at the Radisson Condado, points took about 4 days to post (all points stay, big night bonus, and status bonus) Also managed to sneak in a night at a Country Inn on the last night of the promo thanks to a business trip!
