First of all, thanks so much for the comments and emails – they helped me decide what to do with both cards. I’ve decided that I’m keeping both the personal and business… Read More

Should I keep both Club Carlson Credit Cards?

The Radisson Blu Residence Dubai Marina

The May Fair London

10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction For the remaining two nights in London, I also redeemed 70k Club Carlson points total (and got the second night free).

It is described as a luxurious five… Read More

Plaza on the River London

10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction For the first two nights in London, I redeemed 70k Club Carlson points total for the Plaza on the River hotel.
