Radisson Rewards – the loyalty scheme for Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Park Inn and Park Plaza – has launched a double points offer.

It runs from yesterday until 31st August.  There are two snags:

the rules say that stays must be booked and consumed between 9th July and 31st August, so existing bookings may not qualify

you need to stay a minimum of TWO nights

You must register for the offer – but that is easily done by clicking here.

If you can work around the minimum stay and new booking restrictions, this could work out nicely.  You would usually receive 20 base points per $1 spent, which would double to 40 base points per $1.  Given that I tend to value a Radisson Rewards point at around 0.33p (0.44c) you are getting a return of 17.5% on your spending.

If you have Radisson Rewards status – and American Express Platinum cardholders get Gold status in Radisson Rewards for free – you would earn 45 points per $1 in total, meaning a return of almost 20%.

The registration page for the double points offer 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 (February 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.

    Just had a survey from Hilton about a new credit card. Two options suggested. Not sure how much I can say as think they said not to tell, but both more generous than current card. One offers more points and the other a free night for hitting a yearly spend target. Both still retained gold Hilton for £10k spend in a year.

    • Anna says:

      What was the target for the free night?

      • Little birdy says:

        £15k for free weekend night and £20k for additional free night – however only on the “less generous” rendering of the card with only 1 Hilton point per £1 spend.

        • Rob says:

          Looks good to me – you’d be getting a 2 night weekend break each year at (if you pick well) a top Conrad or Waldorf Astoria. Fancy a free 2-night weekend break each year at, say, Hilton Venice?

        • TGLoyalty says:

          Considering you could spend it at a hotel costing c50-80k a night the effective rate on the 15k spend is pretty good c4-6points per £1.

          Is the 2nd night at 20k total or further 20k ie 35k total?

          • Rob says:

            I see it as £20k in total. This a country with an average salary of £27k …..

    • Alan says:

      Interesting – a recurring free night option for hitting spend (a la IHG) would definitely be interesting.

    • Crafty says:

      Interesting read of the survey. I had the same survey and had a strongly negative read, my reason being that Silver status (offered as base) is worthless, and the only worthwhile benefits (Gold status and a free night) both required very significant annual spend.

      I was at pains to tell them that I, and many others, had engendered a loyalty to Hilton off the back of their previous, generous, card; and that a less generous card would feel like a kick in the teeth and likely engender the opposite!

      • Rob says:

        Eh? The old card was the SAME as the first proposed version now – no annual fee, Gold for £10k spend, Silver for everyone, 2 points per £1, no long-term spend bonus.

        In fact, the proposed 5 points per £1 on Hilton spending makes the new card even better than the existing one.

        • Commenter says:

          I believe Crafty is commenting on the spend requirement to obtain a free night – very far from being the same

  • Barry says:

    I used Marriott points (shared 45k with a colleague) and went and saw Quincy Jones at the O2 at the end of June. We arrived early, canapes were served in the private box. hot food was brought out just before the show. Open bar. the music was spectacular. lots of special guests in support of a true legend of music. it was a great night. the box holds about 20 people, but there were only 10 of us. great service from the hosts of the night. will be doing it again.
