Buying points can sometimes be a good way to book discounted hotel rooms. So it’s worth taking a look whenever points are sold at a discount. The latest offer comes from Radisson Rewards and is available until 22 April, 2018.
Club Carlson has a very low annual limit when selling points – 40,000 per year – so this bonus makes that 70,000 points. You will pay $280 (£195-200).
Although Club Carlson is definitely not my favourite hotel chain, a standard room at a top end hotel costs 70,000 points per night. When you make a comparison with the cash cost of a night at a hotel such as the May Fair, you could spend £200 buying 70,000 Club Carlson points, or you could spend a whole lot more…
And, at the lower end, if you should happen to require an award Category 1 property, buying those 9,000 points will only cost you £25 or so. A Category 2 hotel would cost you £40.
