Radisson is the latest of the major hotel chains to announce its end of year promotion and this time around the hotelier is offering double points and double elite night credits on all qualifying stays through 29 December 2019...but there's a catch.
There was a time, not all that long ago, when the Las Vegas strip was pretty much devoid of any properties at which the mainstream points currencies could be “earned and burned”. There was a Westin just off the strip (opposite Harrah’s) and then Marriott built its “Grand Chateau” timeshare property on Harman but, other than that, there weren’t really any other options.
Radisson Rewards is back with a new points sale in which it’s offering a bonus of up to 50% to anyone willing to buy its currency on or before 28 July 2019. The hotelier has also increased the maximum number of points Radisson Rewards members can buy in a year and, for some this may make this sale more interesting than it would otherwise be.
Radisson's latest points promotion is now live and, as points promotions go, this one shows potential. Between now and 31 August 2019 Radisson Rewards members can earn 3,000 points per night at all Radisson Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson, Radisson RED, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inn & Suites properties worldwide.
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.
