Radisson is a hotel group that doesn’t get much love these days. While the value of their points is among the lowest of hotel loyalty programs, the actually offer some decent credit cards, if you use the chain from time to time. More awkwardly, Radisson recently split into two different programs: Radisson Hotels Americas and Radisson Hotels. You can freely transfer points between the programs, but this change is annoying.

If you are a fan of earning and redeeming Radisson points within the United States, Radisson Hotels Americas is offering an excellent promotion through December 31, 2021.

Radisson One-Two-Free Promotion

Between September 8 and December 31, 2021, you can earn a free night after redeeming points for a two-night stay at a Radisson Hotels America property of your choice. Given that you’re earning a free night while using points for a free night, this is a pretty amazing offer. Radisson used to have a last night free perk, but this has long died. The current promotion is the closest you may get to it.

Some key details to the Radisson Hotels One Two Free promotion:

  • The promotion is valid at all Radisson Americas properties (hotels in the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean)
  • Two-night (or more) award stays must be completed between September 8 and December 31, 2021.
  • Registration is required. Use this link.
  • Two-night (or more) award stays redeemed at Category 1-3 hotels will earn a certificate good at a Category 1-3 property.
  • Two-night (or more) award stays redeemed at Category 4-5 hotels will earn a certificate good at a Category 4-5 property.
  • You can earn a maximum of five (5) free night certificates through this promotion.
  • The free night certificates are good for stays between January 17 and May 23, 2022.

Remember that there are five hotel categories under the newly-launched Radisson Hotels Americas. Rather than the strange price levels of the old program, the five levels are in increments of 15,000 points, with 15,000 as Category 1 and 75,000 as Category 5.

My Thoughts

The coolest thing about this promotion is that you can spend just 30,000 Radisson points for two nights at a Category 1 hotel and walk away with a certificate worth up to 45,000 points. It’s like Radisson is paying you to stay!

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to take advantage of this promotion. I have a single night planned at a Radisson property in the coming months, and it is using a free night certificate that I earned from their credit card. Rather than earning more free nights, I’m in the process of burning everything I have.

Will you be able to take advantage of the Radisson One Two Free promotion?
