UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.  We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above. 

Click here for our article on Radisson’s current ‘5,000 bonus points per stay’ promotion which runs until 31st December 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

If you are planning an upcoming stay at a Radisson Blu, Radisson RED or Park Inn, you can earn double Radisson Rewards points AND double status credits until 28th December.

This is especially interesting if you are close to earning or retaining your status.

The snag is that it only applies to ‘premium’ rooms.  These are defined as Studio Suite, 1 Bedroom Suite, Premium Room, Superior Room, Executive Suite or Junior Suite.  As a Superior Room is often just one level higher than a standard room, this might not be as much of a problem as you think.

You can find details on the Radisson Rewards website here.

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.
