What’s the scoop with Club Carlson Visa?

Recently, Club Carlson Visa cardmembers were given the bad news that the Bonus Award Night benefit was ending. We let you know that as a sweetener, cardmembers would be given 30,000 bonus Gold points with just one stay at a Carlson Rezidor hotel worldwide.

Now, a View from the Wing reader has posted to say he was awarded the 30,000 Gold points without an actual stay, but instead with food and beverage charged to the card.

Other readers report that it hasn’t worked for them, while it has worked for some – so YMMV.
