Radisson just announced a new promotion where you will receive one free night after one paid stay. When I first saw this I was hoping for another 50,000 free point promotion where points can be redeemed anywhere (like they’ve had twice in the past 12 months), but no luck. While not as good as the last promotion, this is still a great promotion for those that want to stay at a Radisson or Radisson Blu property in the US, Canada, or the Caribbean.
Promotion terms: Book a stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blu hotel in the US, Canada, or Caribbean by October 31 for travel through December 31, 2012. You must first register for the promotion and book your stay at radisson.com. Unfortunately, per the terms of the promotion, only stays booked starting today, October 1 will qualify. If you have an existing stay during this time frame and the rate has not increased, I’d suggest canceling and rebooking. The good thing is though, is that almost all rates qualify – that includes AAA, prepaid rates, corporate rates, etc. Rates that do not qualify are those that do not earn Club Carlson points, such as employee rates, friends and family rates, rates booked through a third party booking site, travel agent rates, etc.
After your qualifying stay, you will then receive a free night certificate (within 14 days) which will be valid for reservations at any Radisson Blu or Radisson hotel in the US, Canada, or the Caribbean through December 31, 2013. The free night certificate will be linked to your account and will allow you to book your reservation online. This is limited to one free night per account.
My thoughts: I am personally not a huge fan of Radisson properties in the US, and with the last two promotions my goal is to redeem those points at international properties. If I partake in this promotion, it will be to redeem my free nights either in Chicago (at the new Radisson Blu location), in New York City (for my family since rates are so expensive), or one of the two Caribbean resorts (in Aruba or St. Martin). You can look at all the US, Canada, and Caribbean destinations on this interactive map. Make sure to just search for Radisson and Radisson Blu properties.
You can also take advantage of their Fall promotion which is offering:
- 2,000 bonus points per night when you stay one to five nights
- 4,000 bonus points per night when you stay six to nine nights
- 6,000 bonus points per night when you stay 10 to 20 nights
Thanks to Will Run for Miles for sharing this promotion!
