Radisson Rewards has just announced the details of their next global promotion. While it’s valid for stays over a few months, the booking window is extremely limited.
Radisson Rewards Offering Double Points & Double Nights
Radisson Rewards is offering double points and double elite nights/stays for stays this fall. In order to be eligible you need to:
- Register and book between September 16 and September 26, 2019; previously booked reservations don’t qualify
- Stay between September 26 and December 29, 2019
This offer is available at all Radisson Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson, Radisson RED, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, and Country Inn & Suites by Radisson hotels worldwide.
Crunching The Numbers On This Promotion
Radisson Rewards members ordinarily earn 20 base points per dollar spent, meaning that with this promotion they can earn an additional 20 points per dollar spent. Then on top of that they can earn elite bonuses, which are as follows:
- Silver members earn 2 bonus points per dollar spent
- Gold members earn 5 bonus points per dollar spent
- Platinum members earn 15 bonus points per dollar spent
So in total members are looking at earning 40-55 points per dollar spent. Personally I value Radisson Rewards points at ~0.3 cents each, so if you’re earning 40 points per dollar spent, that’s like the equivalent of a 12% return, by my valuation. The return gets better once you factor in the value you get out of credit card spending, and also if you have status in the Radisson Rewards program.
For reference, here’s Radisson Rewards’ award chart, when it comes time to redeem points:
On top of that you’re earning double elite nights and elite stays. Ordinarily the following thresholds are required for status:
- Silver requires 9 nights or 6 stays
- Gold requires 30 nights or 20 stays
- Platinum requires 60 nights or 30 stays
This potentially creates a pathway for earning status much faster than usual, as you could earn Silver after three stays, Platinum after 15 stays, etc.
Radisson Rewards Promo Summary
Radisson is offering double points and double elite nights/stays this fall, which is a solid promotion. That’s especially true when you consider that properties worldwide are included, and the promotion kicks in with your first stay.
The big catch is that there’s only a very short window during which you can book in order to take advantage of this.
