Another Radisson Points Sale – Is it Worth Considering?

Radisson Rewards Americas’ best Black Friday offer is to sell points with a 100% bonus. The offer will run until December 1, 2021.

You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 points per year. Once the bonus is applied, you will receive 160,000 points. This will cost you $640 – or 0.35 cents per point.

Does it Make Sense to Buy Points?

A Fun Travel Hack

I have previously written about a fun Radisson Rewards Americas promotion where you can turn a 2-night award stay costing 30,000 points into a free night certificate worth 45,000 points. Click here to re-read that article.

That promotion is running until December 31, 2021. So now might be your last chance to buy enough points to participate fully…

Standard Award Nights

The annual maximum of 160,000 points (80k x 2) doesn’t stretch very far when you are trying to stay at one of Radisson’s best hotels costing 75,000 points per night.

Regardless, buying points for 0.35 cents each can result in some serious bargains, since you won’t have any additional taxes to pay on “free” award nights…

  1. Category 1 – $52.50
  2. Category 2 – $105
  3. Category 3 – $157.50
  4. Category 4 – $210
  5. Category 5 – $262.50

The Bottom Line

Although the annual cap could be higher, these 100% bonuses are a great way to pick up some Radisson points. Sometimes you never quite know when a Radisson hotel will be your best option in a certain location. So having a stash of Radisson points can be useful, even if you tend to prefer the larger hotel chains…

And as a travel hacker, you could theoretically get three hotel nights for little more than $100 of investment. What’s not to like about that…
