For the next week, Radisson is offering a 100% bonus on purchasing points as part of their Black Friday promotion. This is definitely a great offer for those looking to increased their Radisson balance although I absolutely would not purchase points speculatively. If you have an upcoming stay at a Radisson property, or any other property under their umbrella, do the math and see if purchasing points is in fact less expensive then paying the lowest available rate.
With this offer, you can purchase up to 80,000 points (40,000 max points per year + 40,000 bonus points). If you were to go all in that would cost you a total of $280. This is pretty much on par with how I value my Radisson points, which is why I suggest not speculatively buying points. Years ago when Radisson had their awesome 2-for-1 benefit with their credit card, I was absolutely a buyer at this price, but when they got rid of the benefit, purchasing points were not nearly as valuable. With that being said, the opportunity to purchase points does not come around too often, so you might not see another promotion like this for awhile.
What is your favorite Radisson property?
