Radisson Rewards Offering 15% Off Award Nights

Radisson Rewards Offering 15% Off Award Nights

10

Radisson Rewards has just launched a sale on award redemptions. While it’s not the biggest or most useful award sale we’ve ever seen, I imagine some people will still be able to take advantage of this.

15% off free night award redemptions

Radisson Rewards has just launched a promotion offering 15% off when you redeem for free nights:

  • Reservations must be made between January 12 and 18, 2022
  • Valid for stays between January 12 and December 31, 2022
  • This doesn’t apply to Points + Cash room night redemptions
  • There’s no registration required, and you should automatically see the lower price reflected during the booking process

Here’s Radisson Rewards’ award chart reflecting the award discount:

As you can see, with this promotion you’d end up paying anywhere from 12,750 points per night for a Category 1 hotel, to 63,750 points per night for a Category 6 hotel.

Personally I value Radisson Rewards points at ~0.3 cents each, making it one of the less valuable points currencies out there, on a per-point basis. If you are going to redeem points, you might as well do so when there’s a redemption discount, especially given that you can stay through the end of the year.

This doesn’t apply to Radisson Rewards Americas

There’s one other important thing to note, which is that this promotion only applies to the global Radisson Rewards program, and not the Radisson Rewards Americas program, which launched in the summer of 2021:

  • Radisson had to split its loyalty program into two, since Radisson is essentially owned by the Chinese government, and the US government requires that the Chinese government no longer has access to member data
  • The good news is that you can move points freely between the two Radisson Rewards programs, so you can take advantage of this even if you’re based in the Americas
  • The important thing to understand is that properties in the Americas can only be booked through Radisson Rewards Americas, so this promotion only works for properties outside that region
  • Unfortunately when this program was introduced we saw a huge award chart devaluation, in the name of “a simplified award night experience”
Radisson Rewards has a separate loyalty program for the Americas

Bottom line

At the moment the global Radisson Rewards program is incentivizing redemptions. You can get 15% off awards that are booked by January 18, for travel all the way through December 31, 2022. If you have Radisson Rewards points, this could be a great time to redeem them.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Radisson Rewards points redemption opportunity?

    Is there a minimum or maximum number of points I can transfer between the two accounts? Is there a limit to the number of transfers I can make in a certain timeframe?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Ed -- While the process of making a transfer isn't necessarily seamless, I don't think there are any limits on the amount of points you can transfer. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    If you are buying these to use at the Radisson Blu Maldives, be forewarned that there is currently no award availability for the entirety 2022 and I haven't seen any availability at this property for the past 2 months .

    If you are buying these to use at the Radisson Blu Maldives, be forewarned that there is currently no award availability for the entirety 2022 and I haven't seen any availability at this property for the past 2 months . It appears they are no longer providing any redemption opportunities whatsoever. I've contacted Radisson and they denied this is the case but couldn't give me a reason for the lack of award availability. It would be nice if Lucky or another blogger could reach out and find out why they aren't providing any award nights for this property.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Capri -- Yeah, it is pretty disappointing how there doesn't seem to me availability there, as it's just about the most aspirational property in the system.

    Made a booking at Radisson Gran Canaria. It got me 6,5 cents (us dollar) point value.

  4. Andy Guest

    Well I cancelled an existing award reservation this AM after reading this to save 9,000 point. Its been hours, and the points are still not back in my account. Yikes. I wonder if they are hold points until after promo.

    1. rsa127 Guest

      I had the same issue. I called Radisson member services and they reinstated points manually.

    2. Andy Guest

      What number did you call? I’m not fining any American based number to call.

    3. Kevin Guest

      same thing happened to me. Wondering which number to call or should I just wait...

  5. Donny Guest

    Woohoo! I was hoping one of these would come in Q1!
