UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 group, has launched a generous promotion to encourage you to book with their mobile app.
Until November 15th, you will earn 3,000 bonus Club Carlson points for every stay booked via their app.
You can earn the bonus an unlimited number of times.
I tend to value Club Carlson points at 0.4p – 0.5p each, based on redeeming 50,000 points for a £200 – £250 five-star hotel. This means that the bonus points are worth £12 – £15 per stay which is an excellent return, especially on cheap Park Inn stays.
Note that November 16th, just one day after the last day to book to earn the bonus points, is the last day to stay.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (November 2021)
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 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 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 and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
