Radisson Rewards has launched a one week flash sale, running to 18th January.
It’s a simple deal – ALL redemptions for the brands listed below are reduced by 15%, as long as you stay by 31st December 2022.
Participating hotels are all Radisson Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson, Radisson RED, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, and Country Inn & Suites by Radisson hotels in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Even better, there is a parallel offer of a 25% bonus when you buy Radisson Rewards points. If you have a Radisson hotel booked for cash, you may want to look at rebooking it as a reward – even if you need to buy the points.
Remember that American Express Membership Rewards transfers to Radisson Rewards are at the generous rate of 1:3. However, the last Radisson transfer I did from Amex took seven days to complete which would have been a disaster if this offer was running at that point.
You can see the ‘points per category’ pricing with the 15% discount on the Radisson website here.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (May 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.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 180,000 Radisson Rewards points, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
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 two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 60,000 Membership Rewards points (SPECIAL OFFER) converts into 180,000 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.
