Radisson Rewards has brought back its popular Dream Deals sale for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
This offers a double bonus for members, who not only get a 20% discount on their room but will also receive 2,500 bonus Radisson Rewards points with each booking.
Dream Deals are available for booking until 31st December. You must be a Radisson Rewards member to get the full 20% sale discount. Stays must be completed by 29th February.
Deals cover all brands – Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson Collection, Park Inn and Park Plaza are the core UK ones.
I value a Radisson Rewards point at 0.33p, so you’re getting an extra £8 of value per booking from the 2,500 bonus points. For a cheap Park Inn stay this makes a substantial difference.
I need a hotel at Stansted for early February, so I am very tempted to try the Radisson Stansted Airport – which we’ve never reviewed on Head for Points – and pick up the extra points. Remember that Radisson Rewards Gold status (benefits here) is available to you for free if you have an American Express Platinum card.
Full details of the Dream Deals sale are on the Radisson 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 – 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.
