Radisson’s super generous “1 for 1” promotion

Radisson is running an extremely generous promotion for the first 50,000 Club Carlson members that register. To earn one free night at any Radisson or Radisson Blu in the US, Canada, or the Caribbean, simply book a qualifying stay at radisson.com or clubcarlson.com at any Radisson Blu or Radisson hotel in the US, Canada or Caribbean between October 1 and October 31, 2012. The qualifying stay has to be between October 1 and December 31, 2012.

The free night can be redeemed online through December 31, 2013.

The shift in hotel promotions we’ve seen lately is quite interesting. In the past we could count on Hyatt and Starwood for the exciting promotions, while now we’re seeing them with Club Carlson and similar brands. Too bad Hyatt and Starwood don’t seem to view them as their direct competition, or else mattress running would be as lucrative as ever!

It goes without saying this is an awesome promotion if you can plan a stay at a cheap Radisson hotel, and redeem at one of their more expensive ones. For example, I just entered random dates and found a stay at the Radisson Resort Orlando for $89 per night.

And then that free night could be redeemed next summer at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago, where rates are $379+ per night.


  1. For the Radisson Resort Orlando Celebartion -> Points and Cash option amounts to 5000 points + $55 (which I just booked) and is a valid rate for this promotion

  2. (a different nick) Be careful with the Radisson at Celebration. While still a good deal, it has a $13 resort fee. My choice is going to be Ocala:

    Room Cost
    Room 1 Points Redeemed
    5,000 points
    Room 1 Cost
    $47.40 USD

    Subtotal $47.40 USD
    Estimated Taxes $3.79 USD
    Estimated Additional Fees $0.00 USD
    5,000 points
    $51.19 USD

    What a deal! True – it’s Ocala – but at least there’s a Hooters in Ocala as well. 🙂

  3. Anything in the rules about not opening up another Club Carlson account to enjoy this promotion more than once?

  4. Thanks for the heads up on this one… I’m Hyatt diamond and IHG platinum so I’ve been working on Diamond Hilton – I’m pretty close so I just registered for this one and booked something for next week… This will go well with my free 1 night IHG and 2 nights Hyatt… I’ll need to plan a vacation just around using these 4 certificates.

  5. The Bed and Breakfast package currently offered by Radisson is a qualifying rate for this promotion. What makes this a great deal is that triple bonus points and an additional bonus 2000 points booking bonus are offered. Therefore, these bonus points turn the “Buy One, Get One” offer into, essentially, “Buy One, Get One then receive enough bonus points to get yet another one” Details:

  6. So for the last Radisson promo (the same one last year) I took part in they just gave me 50K points, I guess this is going to be different it will be a cert which is limited to North America & Caribbean?

  7. I registered for the promotion, but is there any proof of registration in my online Club Carlson profile. I just don’t want to be told later I didn’t register for this promotion…
