I got an email from Radisson Rewards (formerly Club Carlson) recently, offering a 30% rebate when redeeming Points at a large range of hotels.
According to the terms, the offer seems to be targeted and only available to members who received an email about it, so have a quick look in your spam folder etc to check if you got one.
Stays need to be booked by July 10, 2018, and must take place between July 3 and September 30, 2018,
To be eligible for the Promotion, you must:
- “Be a Radisson Rewards member
- Have received a private email invitation to participate in the promotion (“Eligible Member”)
- Redeem points for an Award Night(s) stay within the booking and consumption window referenced above within any one of the “participating properties”. Both the check-in and checkout date of the Award Night stay(s) must occur within the Promotion Period in order for to be eligible for the Promotion.”
There are over 60 participating properties, mostly in Europe, but with a couple in the Middle East and South Africa too. The participating hotels in the UK are listed below with the standard number of Points required per night listed on the right:
As you can see, getting 30% of the Points back could result in some very good value redemptions, like the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt in London (Kensington) for 35,000 Points per night.
Details to be aware of…
The terms appear contradictory as to when exactly you’ll receive the Points rebate, but what is clear is that it will certainly be after the stay has taken place (and possibly after the end of the promotion). You don’t get the Points back instantly after redeeming.
The Rebate only applies to “Award Night (hotel room) stays and does not apply to other reward option redemptions” – Points + Cash redemptions are not eligible for the rebate, and I wouldn’t recommend booking anything other than standard rooms.
Members may book multiple stays within the Promotion Period of the Promotion.
This is an interesting promotion from Radisson Rewards – and hopefully marks the start of more innovation from them in future, as it’s a difficult programme to get excited about at the moment.
