Disclosure: I am getting two one-night stay certificates at U.S. Radissons for hosting this giveaway. I’ll look into giving them away too.

This week I ran two posts as part of a giveaway to give each of two winners:

  • One $500 Visa Gift Card
  • Club Carlson Gold Elite Status through February 2014 (If you already have Club Carlson Gold Status, you will receive Concierge Status through February 2014.)

The prizes were generously donated by Club Carlson. The Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card is the only hotel card to give you the last award night for free on stays of two or more nights. (That means two night award stays are 50% off!)

The two tweets that people had to retweet to enter the Twitter competition had 460 combined retweets. The random number generator has spoken and the winner is @CLMedina, who I recognize–from his Twitter picture–from the Chicago Seminars! Congratulations, Christopher. Enjoy the $500 prepaid Visa and Club Carlson Gold Status.

The two posts had a combined 773 comment entries. The random number generator selected Jen, who said her favorite perk of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card was “Last night free! Such a great perk.”

I very much agree with her that that is the best feature of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card and for her comment, she’ll win a $500 prepaid Visa and Club Carlson Gold Status too.

Thanks to the Club Carlson for donating the prizes and thanks to all the loyal MileValue readers and Twitter followers out there who entered.
