New Radisson hotel cashback deal launched with American Express

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Radisson Blu and Radisson Blu Edwardian have launched what I think is their first ever cashback deal with American Express.

This offer will be showing on the offers tab on the online statement page of many, one or none of your American Express cards.

You will receive a £30 statement credit with a spend of just £100.

The offer is valid until 14th October and is valid at participating hotels in the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.  Check the detailed hotel list on the Amex website in the offer terms before you book.

Of hotels we’ve reviewed, it includes:

Radisson Blu Hamburg Airport, pictured above and reviewed here

The May Fair Hotel in London, reviewed here  

Radisson Blu SkyCity, Stockholm Airport, reviewed here 

Whilst not reviewed for the site, I also stayed at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester last year and was impressed.

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.
