Radisson has recently announced that it will be changing the number of points that 140 of its hotels charge for an award night from 1 March 2019. This means that there's a little over 3 weeks left in which to lock the lower rates at the 84 properties which will be going up in price and a little over 3 weeks before 56 properties will become a better deal.
We've recently seen what IHG has to offer for 1Q 2019, Hilton has had its 1Q promotion running for a couple of weeks and now we have a new promotion from Radisson Rewards...so it's just Marriott and Hyatt that are sitting on the sidelines.
Radisson Rewards has launched a promotion offering members double elite qualifying nights and double redeemable points though the end of the year. The offer is available on "premium" rooms only so guess will not be able to book the very cheapest rates if they want to accelerate their progress to elite status.
Radisson has launched a new promotion in which Radisson rewards members can earn double points on all stays of 2 nights of more taken over the next 7 weeks. The offer is not targeted and appears to be open to all regions so the restrictions on this promotion are limited.
Radisson Rewards is running a sale through 18 July 2018 in which members are being offered a bonus of 50% on all points purchases. A 50% bonus may sound like a reasonable deal but it's important to work out the math and look into the details of the promotion before you decide whether to buy or pass.
Radisson Rewards is running a flash sale through Sunday 22 April in which members are being offered a bonus of 75% on all points purchases. Unlike many points promotions we see this promotion offers the same high bonus whether you buy the minimum or maximum number of points allowed...and that makes it interesting.
Radisson Hotel Group is the new name for what was once Carlson-Rezidor and Radisson Rewards is the new name for the Club Carlson loyalty program. Not too much has changed with the hotel group (except for the name and a reshuffling of premium properties) while the transition from Club Carlson to Radisson Rewards has seen the loyalty program tweak its rules here and there to make them both a little better and a little worse.

Club Carlson has launched what it's calling a "Dream Deals" promotion in which members can save up to 30% on Carlson properties around the world and top up their accounts with membership points too.
Club Carlson has followed IHG's lead and announced a series of category changes for 124 hotels in its portfolio. Where Club Carlson differs from IHG is that the category changes are almost evenly split between the number of properties moving up a category and the number moving down and the results of the changes aren't actually all that bad.
