Quick Thoughts

This could be a nice deal if you have some Radisson points to burn and travel plans coming up that could include Radisson. Here’s a look at the award chart for standard and premium room awards. Keep in mind that category 1 hotels are excluded.

Hotel Category Standard room Standard room after 25% back Premium room Premium room after 25% back
Category 1 9K N/A 13,500 N/A
Category 2 15K 11,250 22,500 16,875
Category 3 28K 21K 42K 31.5K
Category 4 38K 28.5K 57K 42,750
Category 5 44K 33K 66K 49.5K
Category 6 50K 37.5K 75K 56,250
Category 7 70K 52.5K 105K 78,750

 

How exciting you find the rebate just depends on your travel plans. Note that you will need the full amount of points initially and will only receive the rebate after completing your stay.

On the gift card end, the redemptions are terrible. Even after the 15% rebate, the values appear to all be 0.16 or 0.17c per point — less than two tenths of a cent per point. I wouldn’t bother with any of those unless you have orphaned points you’re looking to drain (and even then, since you could transfer to another member I’d probably recommend giving them away to a friend over redeeming this way).

Overall, this is a lukewarm promo in terms of the booking and travel window, though it certainly may come in handy on a road trip. Remember that you must register prior to check out.
