Radisson Rewards has launched a new promotion, and I’m delighted to say that it is already our clear winner for ‘simplest hotel promotion of the year’.

You will receive 5,000 bonus Radisson Rewards points on every stay before 31st December 2020.

That’s it!

It covers stays at all hotels in the following brands:

  • Radisson Collection
  • Radisson Blu
  • Radisson
  • Radisson RED
  • Park Plaza
  • Park Inn by Radisson
  • Country Inn & Suites by Radisson

Here’s what Radisson isn’t doing:

  • they are NOT excluding your first stay after registration
  • they are NOT excluding any countries or brands
  • they are NOT closing registration early
  • they are NOT excluding existing bookings
  • they are NOT restricting it to cash stays – reward nights count too!
  • they are NOT making it a one-off bonus – you can earn it 30 times!

The one and only thing you need to do to ensure you get your 5,000 bonus points per stay is to register via this link and book direct.  Once registered, you’re good for the rest of 2020.

Radisson Rewards 5000 points promo

What are 5,000 Radisson Rewards points worth?

I value a Radisson point at 0.33p.

Their top redemption price for a standard room is 70,000 points, which would convert to £233 under this valuation.  That’s fair for a 5-stay in a top global city.  The valuation also tends to hold at midscale and budget properties.

This means that your 5,000 bonus points per stay are worth £16.66.  This is an EXCELLENT return, especially at cheaper hotels and on one-night stays.

You also receive your base points, of course.  Radisson Rewards has arguably the most generous base earning rate in the business, at 20 points per $1.  If you have status (and Amex Platinum cardholders get free Radisson Rewards Gold membership) you earn even more.

Let’s look at a £75 stay at a UK Park Inn hotel.  £75 less VAT is £62.50 ($80).  You would earn ($80 x 20 + 5000) 6,600 points from the stay, which I’d value at £21.75.  That’s a 29% rebate on your spending.  If you can reclaim the VAT – admittedly most of you can’t – the rebate jumps to 35%!

Do I really get 5,000 bonus points on reward stays too?

Yes.  It is clearly stated on the registration website.  It also applies to ‘points and money’ stays.

This means you’re effectively getting a 5,000 point discount on each reward stay.

Don’t forget to register for the 5,000 bonus points offer via this link.

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.

    One click registration for the promo is available in the app which is impressive!

    The flash sale is for stays up until end of September only as far as I can see.

  2. ChrisC says:

    Very easy to register using either your Radisson rewards number or registered email address for your rewards account.

    I see no Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam – must have filled that one from the previous offer!

    Did check the Vondelpark and superior queen rooms there for the offer price when I checked just now.

    Radisson are also currently running the Dream Deals promo with 2500 bonus points per stay. Book by 14 July and stay by 31 August. It combines with the 5k bonus and members also earn the usual points per USD including tier bonuses.

  4. Just to clarify, this is a double negative, so reads that they are excluding first stay etc…

    Here’s what Radisson ISN’T doing:…. they are NOT excluding your first stay after registration etc

    Assume these are positive features so Here’s what Radisson ARE doing:…..?

    5-stay … should be 5 star?

    Result. Booked the Radisson Palace Southend for £70 via dream deals.

    Assuming the points stack this works out to ~12k points (1700 points spend, 3k points for app booking, 5k promo, 2.5k dream deals) or a 57% discount at Rob’s valuation.

    The fish chips and beer could well be more expensive…

  7. Make sure your Park Inn isn’t filled with asylum seekers!

  8. Anybody know how you can find out your membership number?

    They appear to the best promotion but worst sign in experience!

    • ChrisC says:

      It’s on the ‘your account’ page.

      You can sign up using the email you use for your Radisson account.

      This must be one of the simplest offers to register for!

  9. Park Inn by Radisson Birmingham Walsall at £38 would earn 1000 points spend + 2500 dream deal + 5000 promo? I wonder if the dream deal stacks. But I’m not sure I could enjoy 30 nights there (150,000 cap on the promo).

  10. FLASH code still seems to be working (just booked Amsterdam)
