Club Carlson如何保证点数不过期

更全的办法这里有介绍, 下面只讲一下我觉得可行并且划算的方法

Premier card: $75 annual fee; 10pts/$ on hotel purchase; 5pts/$ otherwise; gold status; book 2 or more consecutive nights with points, last night is free; 40,000 renewal bonus points each year when you renew your card

Rewards card: $50 annual fee; 6pts/$ on hotel purchase; 3pts/$ otherwise; silver status; book 2 or more consecutive nights with points, last night is free; 25,000 renewal bonus points each year when you renew your card

Business card: $60 annual fee; 10pts/$ on hotel purchase; 5pts/$ otherwise; gold status; book 2 or more consecutive nights with points, last night is free; 40,000 renewal bonus points each year when you renew your card

Can I transfer my Gold Points to another Club Carlson account?

Elite members may transfer Points from their account to another Program member account upon request. All other members (non-Elite) may transfer Points to another Program member residing in the same household provided that both individuals have been a Program member for at least one year and the addresses for either account involved in the transfer have not been up updated within thirty (30) days prior to the transfer request. All members can request a transfer by contacting Member Services. Club Carlson reserves the right to require proof of eligibility or residency and, in its sole discretion, deny a Point transfer request.

  • 用点数预定酒店
  • 用点数预定酒店然后取消(注意是否有cancellation fee). 猥琐了点

备注:

  • Club Carlson是可以status match其他家高级会员的. 比如如果你是SPG或者Hilton的金卡会员, 可以向goldpointsplus@carlson.com发邮件要求Match(附上你是其他酒店高级会员的截屏), 最高可以match他家的Gold status (提供早餐).
  • 一个特殊的升级高级会员办法: 如果你持有200股Rezidor (NASDAQ: RZZIF)的股票, 可以给Investorrelations@Rezidor.com 发邮件要求升级到Gold status
  • Club Carlson 的点数比较不值钱; Cat 1 (9,000点)和Cat 2(15,000)点在北美基本都是偏僻地方; 中国最低Cat 3(28,000点, 北京 上海 天津)
  • 信用卡holder的福利:住两晚或以上reward nights,最后一晚免费. Premier卡或者Biz卡如果一年消费$10,000 拿到最少50,000的点数; 加上交年费送40,000点,配合free night可以换四个Cat 5 (44,000点) 的rewards nights. 就是不花这张卡, 每年交年费拿到40,000点数也可以换两晚Cat4(38,000)或者Cat5.
  • 注意他家申请premier可能会根据你的收入和信用记录给你downgrade到rewards card. 申请biz就没法downgrade了, 但是Biz不是每个人都可以申, 学生还是最好不要碰了
  • 开卡Bonus: Premier卡最高给过100,000, 现在是85,000; Rewards现在65,000应该是比较高的了.

Hilton如何保证点数不过期

  • Hilton信用卡 (Amex, Citi)

无脑Amex Hilton Honor Credit Card: 无年费, 住店7pts/$; 加油超市饭店5pts/$; 3pts/$ otherwise; 自动silver level(没啥用); 一年消费$20,000升级到gold level. 开卡Bonus最多的时候是65,000点; 最差(常态)是40,000点(悲催的只拿了40,000的bonus). 可以免费开副卡; 主卡副卡都可以参加薅Amex羊毛活动.

Citi 无年费的Hilton Honor Visa signature就差了点: 住店6pts/$; grocery/drugstore/gas station 3pts/$; 2pts/$ otherwise. 自动Silver level. 看电影多的可以考虑申请, visa signature每周五fandango买一送一. (这年代,难道不是人手至少一张signature了? 不差这一张了)

Hilton Honor Surpass from Amex: $75年费; 住店12pts/$; 加油超市饭店6pts/$; 3pts/$ otherwise; 自动gold status(自助双早,很不错). 这卡适合住店多的高帅富. 有了没年费的Honor卡半年后, Amex会给你发邮件(也可以登录Amex账户看到)让你升级到Surpass, 没有Hard Pull还能拿到Surpass的开卡Bonus(一般50,000 pts)

Hilton Honor Reserve from Citi:  $95年费. 开卡送两晚 weekend nights; 每年送一晚weekend night after $10,000 purchase. 住店10pts/$; grocery/drugstore/gas station 5pts/$; 3pts/$ otherwise. 自动Gold level; 年消费$40,000升级到Diamond level

  • 用点数订酒店
  • 用点数订酒店然后取消…
  • 其他办法(租车, 购物, 转点)就不介绍了, 主要原因是Hilton Amex应该人手一张, 延长点数有效期还是比较简单的; 另外一个原因是Hilton点数和别的计划转点太不划算了, 千万不要这么干…
  • 兑换表格: 他家点数是根据淡旺旺浮动的, 不同品牌也不一样. 自己去看吧
  • Tricks: 如果看到那家酒店被underrated 近期可能会升级,赶紧订吧. 订好了可以电话改日期, 即使你改日期的时候酒店已经被升级了, 所需点数保持不变.

Hyatt 如何保证点数不过期

  • Chase Hyatt credit card: $75 年费; 开卡送2 free nights worldwide; 每年送一晚 Cat 1-4; 住店3pts/$; 饭店飞机租车2pts/$; 1pts/$ otherwise: 自动Platinum member(没早饭); 无foreign transaction fee
  • Ultimate rewards (sapphire, ink) 转点
