My biggest priority this week in terms of travel (and odds are for many of you too) was to use as many Club Carlson Gold Points as possible for future stays. Since rooms can usually be canceled I wanted to book lots of hotel stays before the second night free benefit for credit card holders goes away tonight, May 31.
I wrote how we redeemed 304,000 points as of a few days back. Since then I’ve used another 176,000 points on three additional stays. This still leaves me with a lot of Gold Points. I wish there was a way that I could’ve figured out even more dates to book!
Otherwise, I’m pretty close to earning the Southwest Companion Pass for the second time. This will, once again give me a two for one option for flights with the airline. Too bad we need three tickets on the majority of our trips…
