Radisson Blu is running a special Easter promotion across 15 of its hotels in the UK and Ireland.
Between 21st March and 10th April, they are offering special Easter packages . These will get you:
a guaranteed room upgrade
a free Easter egg!
If you are taking your family, children will also eat free.
The only participating London hotel is the Portman (photo below) just behind Selfridges. Manchester Airport and Stansted Airport (the Radisson is connected to the terminal) are also included if you need somewhere to stay before flying off for Easter.
A similar offer is also available at 15 Park Inn hotels across the UK and Ireland – see here.
Alternatively, you can earn Avios directly instead of taking points – see ba.com here. You can earn 500 Avios per stay by showing your British Airways Executive Club card at check-in. You do not need to be a member of Club Carlson to do this.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points from UK credit cards (January 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 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.
