UPDATE – JANUARY 2023: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
On Monday we covered the launch of the Radisson Hotels, owner of the Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Park Inn and Park Plaza brands, Autumn sale.
What we didn’t know when we wrote that article is that Radisson Rewards members will receive 3,000 bonus points when booking a sale rate.
I would value 3,000 Radisson Rewards points at £9+ so this makes a substantial difference, especially if you are booking at cheaper Park Inn hotels.
The sale discount is also increased to 25% for Radisson Rewards members.
This covers hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. You must book by 31st October and stays must be taken between 1st November 2019 and 29th February 2020.
You can find full details, and book, on this special sale page of the Radisson website.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (January 2023)
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 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 60,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with four 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 10,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 30,000 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 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.
