I’m somewhat surprised that this promo has not yet made it to the blogosphere. I totally was expecting to see a blog post titled “10x promo on Club Carlson Business Card” but I guess US Bank doesn’t pay bloggers to create click-bait titles? Actually I myself may have somewhat thought about giving this post the said troll title to mess with 1-2 occasional lurkers this blog gets…but I suppose I eventually thought better? All that said, here is the promotion that I received through snail mail almost a week ago:
The 5k Promotional Offer
Once you spend $2,000 during the promotion period (June 1st through July 31st), additional net purchases will earn 5 bonus Gold Points per dollar spend (up to 5,000 points). Be sure to enroll by June 30.
Enroll online at clubcarlsonvisaoffers.com or call 1-866-927-8857 and provide with the promotional code that came with the letter.
This promo is rather easy to pass on because it requires you to spend $2k before it is activated, then once it is activated it does not give 5x bonus on previous 2k that was spend, and finally at best you can earn +5k points through this promo by spending an additional $1k. If that sounds a little fuzzy, then here is another way to put it – once you spend $3k you earn a total of 20k points, which is only +5k higher than what you would earn for normally spending $3k on Club Carlson Business card. In other words, you’ll earn at a maximum rate of 6.666 points/$ spend on first $3k and this is only better than normal earning by 1.666 points/$.
