Back in February, Club Carlson announced a devaluation that is slated to go into place tomorrow, March 15th, 2014. Nine Club Carlson properties will be moved to a new category 7 tier which will require 70,000 points per night. The new category represents a 40% increase from the current highest redemption level of 50,000 points.
Other changes include the adjustment of 181 properties either up or down a category, reduced elite bonuses and the elimination of the online booking bonus. Also Club Carlson will be introducing options for premium room redemptions although the details have been left pretty vague.
If you haven’t done so already, you might want to take some time to check your travel plans and see whether you will benefit from booking your award nights before or after the changes.
