If you’re looking to top up your Radisson Rewards account, you can do so with an up to 50% bonus on purchased points now through October 10, 2023. Be careful, though, as Radisson Rewards is a fully dynamic award system that is entirely revenue-based, and your points won’t go as far as other programs.
Radisson Rewards Loyalty Program
Before reviewing the details of the sale, there are a few points worth mentioning:
- Radisson Rewards covers Radisson Hotels properties in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. Any Radisson Hotels properties in the Americas are part of Choice Hotels and are under the Choice Privileges umbrella.
- Radisson Rewards’ points bookings are entirely revenue-based, so the cost of a room in cash equates to a specific amount of points you’ll need to spend.
While this sale may offer Radisson Rewards points at a discount, you’ll want to be mindful of the expense and valuation because the points are essentially just going towards a cash rate.
Up to 50% Bonus Points on Sale
Under this sale, you can buy the following points amounts:
- Purchase 1,000 to 4,000 points: 0% bonus points
- Purchase 5,000 to 14,000 points: 20% bonus points
- Purchase 15,000 to 29,000 points: 30% bonus points
- Purchase 30,000 to 49,000 points: 40% bonus points
- Purchase 50,000 to 250,000 points: 50% bonus points
A maximum of 250,000 points can be purchased over the course of a year, and if you were to purchase that amount, you’d spend $1,475 and receive a bonus of 125,000 points for a total of 375,000 points (0.39 cents per point).
You can access the sale through Radisson’s dedicated buy and share points website.
On the low end, you can purchase 5,000 points for $29.50 and receive a bonus of 1,000 points (0.49 cents per point). In general, purchasing through this sale really is only practical if you’re very close to a redemption with points you already have. Buying points simply to spend on a new redemption likely doesn’t make sense in most circumstances.Hot Tip:
Since buying points is like buying cash, you’ll want to check all of the cash rates at the property you’re seeking, including eligible corporate rates, government rates, or AAA/AARP. These discounts can often be much more discounted than what buying points would get you.
We recommend that you don’t buy a lot of points through this promotion since the points are essentially a cash equivalent. Be sure to check all rates you may be eligible for and see if buying points puts you ahead with the cost of the reservation. If it doesn’t, purchasing a normal cash rate is likely best.
