UPDATE – OCTOBER 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Club Carlson, the Radisson / Park Inn / Park Plaza hotel group, has announced its new promotion, ‘Two Nights, 10000 Points’.
You won’t be surprised to know how it works.
Simply stay two consecutive nights between May 13th and July 21st and you will receive 10,000 bonus Club Carlson points for your stay. This is on top of the standard 20 points per $1.
10,000 points would usually require $500 of hotel spending, and is enough for a free night in one of their lowest category properties – although most people prefer to use their points as more aspirational hotels such as The May Fair in London.
You need to register for this offer before you can earn your bonus points. The form is here.
Remember that Club Carlson is also an American Express Membership Rewards partner at a generous 1:3 conversion rate, so you can easily top off your points from this promotion to whatever you need for a reward.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (October 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:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 60,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 90,000 Radisson Rewards points
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 10,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 30,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for life.
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.
