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.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (June 2022)
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:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 90,000 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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
