Radisson Rewards, the loyalty scheme for Radisson, Park Plaza and Park Inn, is offering a 75% bonus when you buy points, however few or many points you buy.
The link is here. The offer ends TODAY, 22nd April.
This deal does potentially offer value if you redeem in the right places on expensive nights.
The maximum number of points you can purchase is 70,000 (40,000 + 30,000 bonus) for $280. That is £200.
The key London hotels such as Park Plaza Westminster Bridge – a relatively new London property with a pool and next to the London Eye, London Dungeon, London Aquarium etc – are 70,000 points per night, so £200. I reviewed that hotel here.
At the more prosaic end of the scale, there are various Park Inn budgets hotels around the UK for 15,000 points per night. Under this promo, 15,000 points would cost you £43 based on the pro-rata price of 70,000.
Earning Radisson Rewards points via UK credit cards
As a reminder, 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 – 10,000 Membership Rewards points (= 30,000 Radisson Rewards points) sign-up bonus
The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points (= 90,000 Radisson Rewards points) sign-up bonus
American Express Rewards credit card – up to 5,000 Membership Rewards points (= 15,000 Radisson Rewards points) sign-up bonus
It is worth noting that 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 Melia Rewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Amex point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.
