Time is running out for the current generous Radisson Rewards offer to promote their rebranding from Club Carlson.  I outlined the few differences between Club Carlson and Radisson Rewards in this article.

I wanted to run through it again today as – whilst you need to book by 15th April – you have until 30th June to actually complete the stays.

Here is the headline deal:

  • Book & stay two nights: earn 5,000 bonus points
  • Book & stay five nights: earn 15,000 bonus points
  • Book & stay 10 nights: earn 50,000 bonus points
  • Book & stay 20+ nights: earn 120,000 bonus points

You can find full details on the Radisson Rewards website here along with a link to register.

Radisson Rewards is the loyalty scheme for Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, Radisson Collection, Park Inn and Park Plaza plus a few smaller brands.

I value a Radisson Rewards point at around 0.33p.  On this basis, you are getting:

  • £8 of points per night if you stay two nights
  • £10 of points per night if you stays five nights
  • £16 of points per night if you stay 10 nights
  • £18 of points per night if you stay 20 nights

You can’t argue with the last couple of offers there.  £16 to £18-worth of points per night is very good going especially if you are in a cheap Park Inn hotel which is only £50 per night.

You even get an extra 500 points per stay if you book on the Radisson Rewards app and, of course, your base points for the stay too.  If you have an American Express Platinum charge card you will have automatic Radisson Rewards Gold status which gets you an extra points bonus.

Radisson Rewards 120000 points promotion

The snag, of course, is the booking deadine later this week.  Whilst the stay dates are 12th March to 30th June, you must book before 15th April.  This is going to make it difficult to hit the 10 and 20 night targets unless your travel plans are very fixed for the following two months.

Even more annoyingly, existing bookings do not count.  You need to cancel and rebook.

A cynic might think that Radisson was deliberately trying to stop people earning the bonus.  That said, if you can make the offer work for you, the link to register is here.

How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards

How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (June 2024)

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:

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 Premium 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.

    Complete OT but SPG.

    Currently some rumors going on about SPG to Airline transfer being canned from 16/04.

    Any ideas from your SPG contacts if this is the case that you can hint your readership?

    • Relaxo says:

      Don’t know about SPG but got a Facebook message from Marriott saying they are introducing some changes to program next week.

      • Roger says:


        That brings the question, should one go ahead with Marriott travel package if there are enough points in the account to hedge against potential devaluation or stop to airline transfer altogether.

    • Rob says:

      Unlikely that would happen with no notice given that Marriott requires the goodwill of SPG members.

  • Dave says:

    This bonus is very annoying and for me sums up why I have stopped booking Radisson hotels unless I can help it. Too many terms and conditions, lack of any recognition when in a property, constant increasing of of award rates and only an average footprint and collection of hotels.
