Club Carlson is running a 10 day ‘Dream Deals’ sale from June 10th to June 20th. This will offer discounts of ‘up to’ 40% at 255 Radisson Blu and Park Inn hotels across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Whilst the offer launches to the general public on June 13th, existing Club Carlson members (or anyone who signs up now) can book immediately.
The rates are valid for stays up to 15th September.
Full pre-payment is required when booking. There is no minimum stay.
There do seem to be some genuine deals available although I struggled to find anything approaching 40%.
On Friday 18 July, for example, the Radisson hotel which is directly connected to Stansted Airport is £74.20. The cheapest standard rate is £81.20. The Radisson Edwardian Kenilworth in London – on the other hand – is less impressive at £147 vs a standard rate of £150. As always, check all the options before booking.
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:
- 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 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 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 15,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for life.
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.
