Club Carlson 50% discount reward sale at, ahem, 7 European hotels

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you picked up a load of Club Carlson points during their generous Summer promotion, you may be interesting in spending a few in a new (very limited) 50% off sale.  Details are here, log-in required.

Here is the list of participating hotels.  Just seven of them:

Belgium – Radisson Blu Palace, Spa

Croatia – Radisson Blu Resort, Split

Croatia – Park Plaza Histria, Pula

France – Radisson Blu Resort, Nice

Georgia – Radisson Blu Hotel, Batumi

Germany – Radisson Blu Resort, Ruegen

Ukraine – Radisson Resort & Spa, Alushta

You need to enter the code 50REDEEM when booking to get the cheaper rate to come up, and you must be logged in.

There is a very wide window here, with booking accepted up to 30 March 2013 for stays up to 31 March 2013.

The best deal here is probably for the Nice property.  It comes down from 50,000 points per night to just 25,000 points.  Remember that you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Club Carlson at a 1:3 rate, so that night in Nice requires just 8,334 Amex points.  Admittedly the hotel is cheap out of season anyway, but you will get well over 1p of value per Amex point.


How to earn Radisson Rewards points from UK credit cards (November 2020)

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 include:

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, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and MeliaRewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
