Buying miles & points strategically can often represent a good value. Along those lines, the Radisson Rewards Americas program has just launched its latest promotion on purchased points, and for some people this might be worth considering.

Promotion on purchases Radisson Rewards points

Through Wednesday, December 1, 2021, Radisson Rewards Americas is offering a 100% bonus on purchased points. You can unlock the 100% bonus as long as you purchase at least 3,000 points in one transaction.

How much does it cost to buy Radisson Rewards points?

Ordinarily you can buy Radisson Rewards Americas points for 0.7 cents each, before any discounts or bonuses. If you maxed out this promotion and purchased 80,000 Radisson Rewards points, you’d receive a total of 160,000 points at a cost of $560, which is a rate of 0.35 cents per Radisson Rewards point.

Radisson Rewards Americas doesn’t sell points very often, at least compared to other programs, and a 100% bonus is as good as it gets.

How many Radisson Rewards points can you buy?

Radisson Rewards Americas lets you buy up to 80,000 points per account per calendar year, before any bonuses. If you maxed out this bonus you’d also be at your yearly limit of how many points you can buy.

Which credit card should you buy Radisson points with?

Radisson Rewards points purchases are processed by points.com, meaning they don’t count as a hotel purchase for the purposes of credit card spending.

I’d recommend using a card with which you’re trying to reach a minimum spending requirement, or a credit card that maximizes your return on everyday spending, like the Chase Freedom Unlimited® (review), Citi® Double Cash Card (review), or Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card (review).

When in doubt, review which credit cards are best for buying points and miles.

Is buying Radisson Rewards points worth it?

The new Radisson Rewards Americas program was launched in June 2021, and with this, Radisson essentially split up its loyalty program into two. You can earn and redeem points in the Americas region with one program, and earn and redeem points in the rest of the world with the other program. Fortunately you can transfer points between the two programs at no cost, but still, it’s not a very seamless experience.

For context, here’s the Radisson Rewards Americas award chart:

As you can see, the cheapest properties go for 15,000 points per night, while the most expensive properties go for 75,000 points per night. Generally speaking there probably aren’t many properties where purchasing points for a redemption represents a good value. Still, there will be situations where the math works out.

Do Radisson Rewards points expire?

Radisson Rewards Americas points expire after 24 months of inactivity. As long as you have some activity that involves earning or redeeming points once every 24 months, your points won’t expire.

How much are Radisson Rewards points worth?

Everyone will value points differently, but personally I value Radisson Rewards points at ~0.3 cents each, and I tend to value points pretty conservatively. So the purchase price is only a bit higher than what I value the points, though like I said, there are ways to get much more value.

Does Radisson Rewards have blackout dates?

Radisson Rewards Americas doesn’t have blackout dates for standard room redemptions, so the program has one of the better policies when it comes to points availability.

Bottom line

Radisson Rewards Americas has just introduced a 100% bonus on purchased points. This is as good as promotions from Radisson get, as the program historically doesn’t often sell points. If you’re into the Radisson Rewards program and could use more points, this is a promotion to consider.

Do you plan on buying Radisson Rewards points with a 100% bonus?

    I have a Radisson credit card , mostly because its from US Bank so not wasting my card count elsewhere.

    As for actually staying at their hotels, unless you want to stay at a Country Inn and Suites, there just aren't that many Radisson full service hotels in the continental US.

    And they keep closing, even pre-pandemic, and worse now. Radisson LAX, gone, Radisson Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco, gone, Manhattan, gone and...

    And they keep closing, even pre-pandemic, and worse now. Radisson LAX, gone, Radisson Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco, gone, Manhattan, gone and so forth. None of those were aspirational, Fisherman's Wharf was a dump but with excellent staff.

    If I Was traveling internationally a lot, sure, its a viable chain. I like some of their UK, Paris and the Berlin hotel with the giant fish tank in the middle.

    I haven't tried moving between the new US vs world program but seems doable.

    No thanks on buying any points.
