Stay Tuned for Another Radisson Big Night Giveaway!

It looks like Mommy Points’ speculation was correct as the landing page for another Radisson Big Night Giveaway is live! While the page does not give us much information, the T&C are listed in the html coding and gives us all the information we need – thanks reader Bob for pointing this out! It is exactly the same promotion as this past winter (see more on this prior promotion here), where after one stay you will earn 50,000 bonus points!! This is a one time promotion, so only one stay will count per account. Additionally, this promotion is limited to the first 100,000 people who register (not the first 100,000 people who stay at a hotel) – that is an important component to remember. And lastly, to get the bonus points you must stay at a Radisson or Radisson Blu property, other Club Carlson properties will not count.

Although the page says “STAY ONE NIGHT GET ONE NIGHT WITH RADISSON® AND RADISSON BLU!” it really is 50,000 bonus points which can be redeemed for a free night at ANY Radisson or Radisson Blu hotel, along with any other Club Carlson hotel. The bonus points are deposited to your account to use as you’d like – so based on the hotel category you actually could get more than one stay out of these free nights. Hotels range from 9,000 to 50,000 points and there are also Cash & Point redemption options.

Registration for this promotion will start at midnight CDT on May 15th. Last year they stated that it was limited to the first 50,000 people who register, but I believe those who registered late in the game still got the 50,000 bonus points also – please let me know your experience. I personally stayed up late last time to register the second the promotion went live, however, it was completely unnecessary. For days after, people were able to register, so I would not worry about the need to stay up late. However, knowing my craziness I probably will!

To be eligible for this promotion you must stay between May 15 and July 15. Check in/out must be within the specified timeframe as well. For example, a one week stay with check-in May 14 but check out within the promotion timeframe of May 17 will not count.

Both myself and my husband took advantage of this promotion last time where he was able to score at $70ish hotel room at LAX and I was able to get a spur of the moment room at the Radisson on Lexington in NYC for about $85 (which is an amazing rate for NYC although the hotel was nothing special – review of the hotel here)! So for about $150ish we earned a combined 100,000 points which can easily be redeemed for two free nights in Paris (for example) – not a bad ROI in my opinion! I still haven’t figured out where I will redeem these points, but my assumption is in Europe. I’ve actually been eyeing the Radisson in Iceland as I’ve been dying to go.

While earlier today I was keeping my fingers crossed for the 50,000 bonus points again, it looks like this has been confirmed by the T&C – wahoo! If you are not already a Club Carlson member, with this promotion you can register for a new account and get an additional 4,500 bonus points. To qualify for this promotion, you must register for a new account by May 31, 2012.

Anyone else able to take advantage the first time around? Who else is excited for another 50,000 bonus point opportunity?! I know I will absolutely be taking advantage of this one.

  1. If you go to the landing page, right click on the page and then click on “View Page Source” and scroll down, you will see what probably are the terms and conditions.

    So, it looks like 50,000 points again. This time it appears the promo is valid worldwide:

    “The Big Night Giveaway Promotion (“Promotion”) is available only to Club CarlsonSM members. To be eligible for the Promotion, members must register online for the Promotion at http://www.radissonbignightgiveaway.com (“Promotion Registration”), provide their Club Carlson member number at the time of reservation or check-in of the Qualifying Stay, and then complete one Qualifying Stay at any Radisson® or Radisson Blu hotel worldwide (“Participating Hotels”). Guest must check in for the Qualifying Stay on or after May 15, 2012 and check out must be completed no later than July 15, 2012 (“Promotion Period”). A “Qualifying Stay” is defined as a stay of one or more consecutive nights in the same room at a Participating Hotel regardless of the number of check-ins or check-outs on a rate for which Gold Points are awarded in accordance with the Club Carlson Program Terms and Conditions. Guest must be present at the Participating Hotel at both the time of check-in and check-out, enrolled in Club Carlson at or before the time of check-in, and registered in the Promotion no later than the time of check-out (to enroll in Club Carlson, visit http://www.clubcarlson.com). The first 100,000 guests who complete the Promotion Registration will receive 50,000 Bonus Gold Points after the completion of their Qualifying Stay. After the first 100,000 Promotion Registrations, every guest who completes the Promotion Registration will receive 15,000 Bonus Gold Points after the completion of his/her Qualifying Stay. These Bonus Gold Points are in addition to the standard Gold Points awarded for a stay. Only one Club Carlson account per Qualifying Stay will be credited with the Bonus Gold Points. Maximum of one Bonus Gold Point award will be credited to a member with a Qualifying Stay under the Promotion regardless of the number of Qualifying Stays completed by the member during the Promotion Period. Allow 6-8 weeks for the Bonus Gold Points to post to the member’s account. The Promotion and Gold Points are subject to all Club Carlson Program Terms and Conditions. Rates for each night of a Qualifying Stay may vary. Promotion is not valid on existing reservations and is subject to availability. Promotion void where prohibited by law.

  2. this was rumored on FT several days ago. shouldn’t credit go to jbvideo instead of another blogger?

    • @mrredskin – While I read the speculation on another blog, I absolutely appreciate all the speculation and information that is posted on FlyerTalk – so thank you jbvideo for finding this out as well.! For the actual website being active, I got that from Radisson’s social media channels.

  3. Got 50kx2 the last time. Enjoyed 2 stays at Radissons in NJ for under $100 each. Holding them “in the bank”. Will probably be up at midnight — just as ocd as most fters.

    • @Joel & n8 – Will I cannot say for sure, I believe that reservations can be made at anytime. At least, this was the case with the prior promotion. Typically with Radisson and the other hotel chains it only matters when you check-in/check-out, not when the reservation was made.

  4. Excited! I do remember too it didn’t fill up for awhile last year. I think it’ll be the same this year but I’ll be signing up early!
