Live From A Lounge tipped me off a few days ago to Club Carlson’s offer:
I submitted the required info, and two days later, done. I’m Golden.
Some say Carlson’s elite status is worthless because it’s tough to get each individual hotel to follow through on the perks, but at a minimum this would get me a 35% points bonus on any stays with them.

Have a great day!
