50,000 RADISSON POINTS
DEAL OF THE DAY
Hello Readers! Usually, I would not post this kind of offer because it kind of goes against my policy that all tips much only be for non-travel related miles/points
offers. I have sat on this deal for a several days contemplating posting it. Today, I decide to post because with the holidays some of you may actually be traveling and may be able to stay a night at a Radisson along the way and grab this great bonus offer from Radisson.
The details are pretty simple. Radisson is offering 50,000 points
when you complete one stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blue Hotel in the U.S, Canada, or Caribbean between now and December 31, 2011. Simply register here
and make your reservation to stay. You must make your reservation directly with Radisson and not through any other 3rd party (i.e. Expedia, Hotwire, Hotels.com, etc.). You can not stay at any other Carlson Club brand only Radisson or Radisson Blue Hotel within the U.S., Canada, or Caribbean. This offer is limited to the first 50,000 to register
. Since it has been live for several days it might be gone soon. So if you are interested, I would register NOW
Now, what can you do with 50,000 Radisson points
. This is really the million dollar question. Radisson says you can stay 1 night at any Radisson hotel in the world. I say you MAXIMIZE these points
and get a few more nights. Here is there category rewards chart
So how about 5 nights at a Category 1 or 4 nights at a Category 2, or 3 nights at a Category 3. Some incredible locations around the world at Category 1 or 2.
Check them out: Category 1 Category 2
You can also do many other things with these points

There is also a great thread on Flyertalk. Read it here. Like I mentioned earlier, this would typically not be a deal I’d post about since it requires actual travel but I am going to be traveling in December and I’m change my hotel selection and location to Radisson and pick up 100,000 points. One night under my name and the other night under the hubby. Don’t forget to register your spouse and any family memb
ers over 18. Could be a sweet deal if you have several nights you need to stay and can book them separately in family members names. Just a thought!
