*There is a 75$ annual fee.
I personally think that this is a great offer, especially because of the free bonus night with redemptions of 2 nights or more. When booking 2 night award stays you are only charged points for one night. Basically what this means is that you can stay 2 nights at a top tier category 6 hotel for only 25,000 pts a night. On the lower end of the spectrum you can stay 2 nights at a category 1 for only 4500 a night. After meeting the required minimum spend you would have 97,500 points total. You could possibly work that into 21 free nights at a category 1 hotel. By doing a little math its not hard to see that this card can go a long way if you mostly make 2 night stays. On top of the free nights you also get gold status which means the possibility of room upgrades.
Club Carlson includes Radisson Blu, Radisson, Park Plaza, Park Inn, and Country Inn and Suites. They have a good presence in Europe so if you have a trip planned in the near future i would suggest you and your travel partner signing up for this card. You could then stay 2 nights under each of your names at a given hotel for 4 nights total.
The one catch with the 2 for 1 redemption is that you cant redeem it more than once at the same hotel.
