We saw this card offer a bonus of 100,000 points late last year, but this new 120,000 point bonus is the highest we’ve ever seen. This card used to be extremely popular when it was the Club Carlson card and offered the last night free benefit, but unfortunately that’s no longer the case. Standard bonus is 85,000 points. The major problem with this card is that it’s issued by U.S. Bank and getting approved is difficult, most people will want to apply for the U.S. Bank Altitude reserve if they haven’t already but that will depend on your travel goals.
Personally I think Radisson properties in the US are mostly underwhelming where as properties in Europe seem to be much better value. Check out these Things to Know about US Bank Credit Cards before applying. I’m unsure if this will be added to the best credit card bonus page, although I suspect it will be due to the fact it’s so much larger than the standard bonus and a good option for those who have already gotten the other good U.S. bank cards. Update: I will add it there, it can be great value for some readers.
