Instant Club Carlson Gold Elite Status for Free *UPDATE2*

Instant Club Carlson Gold Elite Status for Free *UPDATE2*

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 [email protected] 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 protected] with a screenshot of your Club Carlson account)
Update2: Its working again. Just tried to register with a fake adress on the Seychelles Island and I got instantly Tier Level: Gold Elite.

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
Note: You have to chose Singapore or any other country in the Asia Pacific region for your registration. You can change the Country right after registration in your account settings back to your real country.

Follow the link and enroll online to be upgraded instantly to Gold Elite status.

Probably you removed the promotion code, didn't used the link in the article or you didn't registered with a country in the Asia Pacific.

You really have to chose Singapore or any other country in the Asia Pacific region for your registration. You can change the Country right after registration in your account settings back to your real country.

maybe you THINK you get tier lever Red, because the picture they show is of that card, when you press "continue" you can see (small letters) that you actually have GOLD ELITE. Worked fine for me : )! THNX HP!

Hey SHUEN, I'm not really sure about that. Please read the program terms & conditions.

I used a random address in Delhi, India and changed it back to my home address immediately. Worked perfectly!

Even if you see a red ribbon it doesn´t mean you have a Red Tier - go to "My account" you´ll see under Tier level it´s written "Gold Elite". Thank you guys!!!

You need to send them your number of your club carlson account + screenshot of your status and they need to know your HH account number and best western account number.

Worked for me, and I've emailed HHonors at Hilton & Best Western to get status match - hopefully it'll be fine. The UK Best Western site has a different form for UK rewards members FYI.

It worked for me, I did it yesterday or the day before I don't remember.. I contacted the hotels for the upgrade and today Hilton answered me with this:

Dear Mauro *****,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding a status match. We appreciate you taking the time to contact us.

Should you be at a higher level of membership with one of our hotel competitors, please reply with a copy of your 2011 end of year activity along with your HHonors number and we will review your HHonors account for a potential fast track offer.

You may also mail or fax documentation to the address or fax number listed below:

HHonors Service Center ATTN: DOCUMENT SERVICES PO Box 9003 Addison, TX 75001 Fax: 972-788-1818

I guess this is not going to work.. Too bad let's hope in best western, I use them a lot!

I just received this message: ".....I have added a fast track to your account. If you complete 4 eligible stays within 90 days your account will automatically be upgraded to Gold....."

For the Best Western match, I got the Diamond level status, which is the highest for them. However, the benefits for it (as well as for all other programs) are very limited, if you don't live in the U.S. or Canada.

Just tried, followed ALL instructions above (including singapore address, using link above, ensuring promo code is intact, etc) - and even after clicking through it only shows Red level membership.
