UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
Radisson Rewards has brought back its Dream Deals sale for bookings across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the United States, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia Pacific.
Deals cover all brands – Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson Collection, Park Inn and Park Plaza are the core UK ones.
Full details of the sale are here.
Radisson Rewards members will receive a higher discount of either 20% or 25% depending on country, and will also receive 2,500 bonus Radisson Rewards points with each booking.
Sale deals are available for booking until 14th July. For hotels in Europe, you can stay between 10th June and 31st August.
ALL ROOMS CAN BE CANCELLED IF NECESSARY. The deadline to cancel is eight days before arrival.
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.
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.
