I received an email this afternoon from Club Carlson with an interesting offer to earn an easy 3,000 Club Carlson points. I spent $1 to be on the safe side, but you could probably spend as little as $0.01 to earn these points!

The Deal

  • Earn 3,000 bonus Club Carlson points when you complete your first transaction with any of the Extras Partners in the Club Carlson Mobile App
  • Direct link to promotion here

Key Terms

  • Valid through December 31, 2017
  • Must use the Club Carlson Mobile App
  • Members can only receive the bonus once during the promotion period (3K bonus points total)
  • Points will be added to your account by February 1, 2018
  • No limit to the points you can earn through partner offers
  • See promotion terms here

Quick Thoughts

This deal is super simple — you could have 3K Club Carlson points with less than 3 minutes of effort. You can earn 3,000 points total by completing your first transaction with one of a number of different Extras Partners. For example, you could try out the Club Carlson Dining by making a reservation through Resy (and showing up for the reservation). However, the easiest partner with whom to use this offer is easily eBay.

As you can see, Club Carlson is offering 6 points per dollar at eBay.

Most shopping portals pay out in fractions based on your spend, so I would expect any eBay purchase to trigger the credit. You can find some auctions with Buy It Now prices for as little as $0.01. However, in the off chance that Club Carlson insists that you must spend at least a dollar to earn through a partner, I spent $1. To be clear, it doesn’t say anywhere in the terms that this is necessary — but I found something for a buck that’ll come in handy for me.

The following eBay categories are excluded:

eBay Motors (including Vehicles, Motorcycles, Boats, and Powersports; excluding Parts & Accessories), any form of Real Estate, eBay branded Gift Cards, Bullion, and Heavy Equipment within the Business & Industrial category

Bottom line

Three thousand Club Carlson points aren’t worth a ton, but this is the definition of low-hanging fruit. A single easy purchase should get you 3,000 points. Just open the Club Carlson mobile app and click the “Extras” tab.
