It’s been a while since we’ve had a giveaway here on the blog, so I’m delighted to announce that Angelina Travels and the Radisson Rewards™ Premier Visa Signature® Card have teamed up offer a pretty neat “Radisson Rewards” giveaway awarding two of my readers with 100,000 Radisson Rewards points that are redeemable worldwide.
This spring, I had the opportunity to join Radisson Hotel Group™ at their first Americas Business Conference that took place in April, shortly after the recent rebrand and program improvements were announced.
As of now, the Radisson Hotel Group is made up of 1400 hotels across 8 distinctive hotel brands in 114 countries. The Radisson brand is undergoing a complete refresh, and the perhaps one of the most exciting takeaways was learning that there are plans for a significant expansion of the Radisson Blu properties in America (I absolutely love the Radisson Blu Aqua in Chicago).
This news is particularly alluring because it will hopefully provide fantastic redemption opportunities with the free-night certificates that can be earned with the Radisson Rewards co-branded credit cards.
If you’re not already familiar, the new Radisson Rewards™ Premier Visa Signature® Card comes with a sign-up bonus of 85,000 points, and cardmembers can earn a free night certificate that can be used at any Radisson Hotel Group property in the United States for each $10,000 charged annually, up to a maximum of three award nights for $30,000 charged to the card.
On top of that, cardmembers can earn 40,000 points (that can be used globally) each anniversary just for being a cardmember and paying the $75 annual fee.
As many people are now saying goodbye to the IHG Credit Card, the US Bank-issued Radisson cobranded cards are back on my radar as the Radisson Blu footprint expands in the United States.
Full card offer details are as follows:
- Automatically get upgraded to Radisson Rewards Gold status with the Radisson Rewards Visa Card.
- Earn up to 3 free nights! Earn one free e-cert for each $10,000 spent (up to $30,000)
- 40,000 renewal bonus points each year when you renew your card by paying the Annual fee
- 10 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases at the Radisson Family of Hotels (not including prizeotel), 5 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases everywhere else
- Up to 85,000 Bonus Points – receive 50,000 points after your first purchase plus 35,000 points once you spend $2,500 on your card within the first 90 days
- If you are interested in signing up for the card and learning more visit here.
As mentioned above, there will be two winners of 100,000 Radisson Rewards points that will be drawn at random.
The first winner will be selected from the comments section of this post, and the second winner will be drawn from the Instagram entries.
Enter by 11:59 pm ET on July 1, 2018, and I’ll select two winners and announce them on July 2, 2018. Winners will need to be Radisson Rewards members to receive the prize.
There are Two Ways to Enter
Aside from the Radisson refresh and Radisson Blu US expansion, there are many aspirational properties in the pipeline too! I’ve heard rumors of a Radisson Blu Maldives, Radisson Blu St. Kitts, and Radisson Blu Papagayo in Costa Rica in the near future too.
With that being said…
