I would normally have covered these deals in more depth, but we are still on holiday and I don’t have the time to do full posts!
Yes, you’re rich. A new ‘sticker’ worth a whole 10 Avios points is now available if you watch a video.
(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, start here in this post.)
50 bonus points per bottle of Tesco wine in Scotland
Until 27 April, Tesco has brought back its offer of 50 Clubcard points when you buy wine. This is only available in Scotland, because the new pricing laws for alcohol there mean that Tesco can no longer offer cash discounts beyond a certain level.
This new offer appears to work on any bottle of wine, not just Tesco Finest.
The cheapest item seems to be this very dodgy Black Tower stuff at £1.19, which would be 1p per Avios even if you pour it down the sink (which may be the best option!). Scotland only, remember.
Get free Club Carlson Gold
This offer (deleted as now dead) was targetted at specific American Express cardholders but is working for anyone. If you open a new Club Carlson account, it will be opened at Gold level. This will give you decent additional benefits on your next Radisson, Park Inn or Park Plaza sale. Importantly, you will also be able to book their special ‘2 for 1’ and ‘4 for 2’ weekend packages which often offer great deals.
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.
