Club Carlson is offering instant Gold Elite status for free for Jet’s Gold and Platinum members. But this offer is open for everybody and you can get the Gold status even if you're not a Jet’s Gold or Platinum member.
Update: I've done some research and it seems like you can match the Club Carlson Gold Elite Status with several other loyalty programs (no guarantee):
- Club Carlson Gold Elite = Best Western Rewards Platinum Elite Status (Link)
- Club Carlson Gold Elite = Hilton HHonors Gold Status (E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a screenshot of your Club Carlson account)
- Update: Seems like its not that easy with HHonors but its worth to try it.
- Club Carlson Gold Elite = Red Lion R&R Club Platinum Status (E-Mail to email@example.com with a screenshot of your Club Carlson account)
As a new member you will receive a complimentary upgrade to Gold Elite status without having to meet any minimum stays or nights requirements.
Club Carlson Gold Elite members enjoy the following benefits:
- Complimentary room upgrades as available
- 50% point bonus on every eligible stay
- 2,000 point online booking bonus at clubcarlson.com or any Carlson Rezidor hotel website
- Early check-ins and late checkouts as available upon request
- Roll Over Nights (unused elite-qualifying nights count again next year toward elite status)
- 72-hour room availability guarantee at participating hotels
- Elite Customer Service Line
