Club Carlson, the Radisson / Park Inn / Park Plaza hotel group, is offering 1,000 points to the next 15,000 people to follow them on Twitter.

I would value 1,000 points at £5, so this is a decent deal if you have a Club Carlson account.

Club Carlson Twitter

Unfortunately, at the time of writing (10pm Friday), the website is not working properly.  Once you have followed Club Carlson, the form you need to complete to supply your Club Carlson membership number is not appearing.  It was working earlier in the day, however, so I am taking a punt that they get it working by the time you read this.

The page you need to visit is here.  You will need a Twitter account to do this, and the rules say that the Twitter account must be over 30 days old.

The full rules are here:

You must be a Club CarlsonSM member to receive 1,000 bonus Gold Points® (the “Bonus Award”) as part of the #HashtagHotel promotion (“Promotion”). To earn your Bonus Award, complete the registration form on the Club Carlson blog ( and “follow” the Club Carlson Twitter handle ( Promotion limited to one Bonus Award per member. We will award a maximum of 15,000 Bonus Awards. Your Twitter account must be active for a minimum of 30 days to be eligible for the Bonus Award. We will credit your account with the Bonus Award within 4-6 weeks of providing your member information.

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.

    Thanks Raffles. Done it and I only just joined Club Carlson last weekend after you publicized that Amex cardholders can get free Gold membership. I am hoping to make use of this on the US road trip that I am planning for the Autumn.
