Although the Club Carlson program was MUCH more competitive and valuable before, I still believe that there is value in their program, and having points in their program gives you some diversity when trying to find hotels for your travels and should be a part of any family strategy for travel. In this post, I’m going to show you how to book 5 free nights in a Club Carlson Category 7 property, and we are also going to look at some of their Category 7 properties in Europe.
