Giveaway: Club Carlson Gold Status and a $500 Club Carlson Visa gift card

I have an exciting giveaway this week! Club Carlson, the global hotel rewards program that includes the Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu®, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn® by Radisson, and Country Inns & Suites By Carlson (SM), has given me a prize package to give away.

Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa
By Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group
Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa

Here's what's included:

  • Club Carlson Gold Status valid through February 2015
  • $500 Club Carlson Visa prepaid card
  • In the event that the winner is already a Club Carlson Gold Status member, the winner will be given Club Carlson Concierge status through February 2015 after verification by Club Carlson of their current Gold Status. If you win, you will need to sign up for Club Carlson using this link

I have TWO packages to give away - one to each of two randomly selected winners. If you travel frequently, and especially if you are already a Club Carlson Gold member, this is a fantastic prize. Please note that there may be only one individual winner for each prize and they cannot be combined.

How To Enter
If you would like a chance to win, leave a comment telling me one feature or benefit of the Club Carlson Visa you would be excited to use. Please fill in the email field of the comment form (your email isn't shared with anyone, and I will not send you email unless you win).

Other Ways to Win
There are several additional ways you can get entries in this contest. Each takes only a few minutes!
  1. For Five Entries: Signup for the DeliciousBaby mailing list to get family travel tips and access to special offers and giveaways.

All entries must be received by Friday May 23 2014 at 11:59PM PST I will choose two winners randomly and announce the results here by Monday May 26, 2014.



A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Void in Puerto Rico and where prohibited or restricted by law.

To enter, you must be a U.S. resident, age 18 or older. Employees, partners and vendors of DeliciousBaby and their immediate family members are not eligible to enter. We will disqualify any entries that we believe are generated by scripts and other automated technology. When applicable, the winner may be required to execute and return within five business days an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability and Publicity Release to be eligible for the prize or an alternate winner will be selected.

Only one comment per person per giveaway post (except as outlined above where the comment is related to an extra entry). Duplicate comments and Anonymous comments will be discarded. Please make sure that the email address in your comment form is valid (email addresses are never public). The comment will not be judged in any way and a winner is selected at random. Odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible Entries received

Winners must claim their prize within three business days after the date of notification of such prize. A Giveaway winner's failure to respond to the prize notification and provide a shipping address within the specified three business days will be considered such Giveaway winner's forfeiture of the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, an alternate winner may also be selected from the pool of eligible entries.

All prizes will be awarded. No substitutions including for cash are permitted, except that DeliciousBaby reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater monetary value for any prize.

Already printed a few of your posts as checklists...aaand ordered some of your suggested toddler toys on amazon. Making me feel better already :)

    I have no doubt club carlson could be useful. Anything could be useful to me for this trip honestly...

    I'd use Club Carlton VISA Gold Points during my trip to Puerto Rico in August!

  19. Karen S. on May 20, 2014 at 7:36 p.m.

    I love the initial bonus points offer and would probably use the concierge to help plan trips.

  20. TwoWishes Tara on May 20, 2014 at 9:24 p.m.

    My favorite feature of the Club Carlson Visa is the Bonus Award Night. We just took full advantage of that amazing feature during a trip to Europe -- on a series of two-night stays in different places, it meant our miles stretched twice as far! Definitely a confirmed fan of the card thanks to that feature.

  21. Adrienne gordon on May 21, 2014 at 3:08 a.m.

    I like the concierge service

  22. Margaret Smith on May 21, 2014 at 3:42 a.m.

    I love the feature that when you redeem Gold Points for 2 or more consecutive Award Nights, your last night is free.

  23. Mary Jenkins on May 21, 2014 at 7:38 a.m.

    I like that if you lose your card they will give you emergency cash while it's being replaced! I lost my card in Europe once, and would have been up a creek if I didn't have a boyfriend with me.

    I love the fact that it has a $1 million travel accident benefit. I have a 6 month old and another child on the way and knowing that I have their future in mind if I get hurt, just gives me a peace of mind.

  42. Aly Morell on May 23, 2014 at 10:18 p.m.

    I think the benefit of a concierge service is the best - I always like getting recommendations on restaurants or activities. Concierge also can get you some sweet deals too. :)

    A good recreational place for the family trip.
