Various hotel chains have taken to discounting their redemption prices as a way to engage with their members and encourage them to take a trip so that hotels can be occupied again. After Marriott’s Bonvoy programme and World of Hyatt offered redemption discounts, it is now the turn of Radisson Rewards.
Radisson Rewards has launched a promotion which offers you 25% of your points back on redeeming for free nights at a group hotel. You get 25% points back when you register and book an Award Night stay at participating hotels now through October 25, 2020, for stays from October 12 – December 20, 2020. You need to depart by December 20, 2020, for this promotional price to apply. Registration must be completed before check-out of the Eligible Stay. Register here.
The 25% points back Award Night Offer only applies to redemption night (hotel room) stays, excluding Category 1 hotels within the Promotion Period and does not apply to other reward options such as Points + Cash room night redemptions. In this case, members need to have the full amount of points in their account at the time of the redemption. Subsequently, you will receive a rebate of 25% of the points redeemed within 10 business days after completing the stay (For example, if you redeem 28,000 points, you will receive a refund of 7,000 points to your account after checkout).
With this promotion, you would end up paying 11,250 points per night for a Category 2 hotel, to 52,500 points per night for a Category 7 hotel. These gorgeous hotels in Goa could be yours for just 31,500 points per night.
You can also get 15% points back when you redeem points for gift cards and prepaid cards now through October 25, 2020. If you need some points to top off for a redemption, you can buy Radisson Rewards points with a 100% bonus, which is a cost of US 0.35 Cent per point (INR 0.26).
Radisson Rewards current promotion is a good idea in the current times if you would like to benefit from a cheaper redemption to travel in the next couple of months. However, stay away from the gift card redemptions; in my opinion, they are just a distraction.
Do you plan on using this Radisson Rewards points redemption promotion for any bookings?
