Radisson Rewards is running a sale at the moment with an interesting twist.
As well as saving up to 30% on standard rates, you will receive 3,000 bonus Radisson Rewards points with every booking.
I value a Radisson Rewards point at around 0.35p, based on using 70,000 points for a five star room which I’d value at £250. This means that the bonus is worth £10.50 of extra points, which you earn on top of your existing points. This could be a very attractive rebate on cheap stays.
This is how the sale works:
Valid for hotels in Europe, Africa and Middle East
Book by 7th April
Stay between 8th April and 12th May (30th May in the Middle East)
You can find out more about the sale on the Radisson Blu site here.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (January 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 include:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 60,000 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.
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.
