50% off Club Carlson redemptions and more

An email arrives from Club Carlson promoting 50% off selected redemptions for stays between 1st August and 30th September.  Theoretically, according to the rules, you need to use code 50REDEEM to see participating properties, but it was working for me without that when logged in.

I tried a few random dates in London and Paris and got nothing.  However, I tried Liverpool and got the Radisson Blu just 19,000 points per night which seems a good deal.  In Nottingham, the Park Inn was just 7,500 points per night.  Don’t get your hopes too high, but it is certainly worth a look if you have some stays planned anyway.  If only they provided a list of participating hotels ….

Two other promotions were also mentioned.  Code CCDOUBLEPOINTS is worth double points on your next stay of two or more nights at most of their brands.  Alternatively, FREEBRKT is good for a free breakfast rate at selected Radisson, Park Inn and Park Plaza properties. 

This latter code may be useful for someone doing a Park Plaza night purely to qualify for the current 50,000 bonus points promotion, although I have struggled to find a Park Plaza in the UK which is participating.


How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards

How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (September 2022)

Radisson Rewards does not have a dedicated UK credit card. However, you can earn Radisson Rewards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

These cards earn Membership Rewards points:

EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.

Even better, holders of The Platinum Card receive free Radisson Rewards Gold status for as long as they hold the card.  It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Marriott Bonvoy Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.

    So they do. And a pile of nonsense it appears! Berlin is in the UK, Rostock in Sweden! And the Park Plaza’s on it were showing at full price when I checked.
