Targeted Or Not
The promotion’s terms and conditions seem to indicate that it is targeted:
(ii) have received a private email invitation to participate in the promotion (“Eligible Member”);
However, even though I did not receive the targeted email, when I tried to register with my Radisson membership number, the Radisson website indicated that I was successful. A few minutes later I received an email confirming that I had registered for the promotion; the same happened for 6 other accounts we tried. While Radisson indicates that the promotion is targeted, it may not be the case, since it seems to be open to everyone.
6,000 Free Points
One of the quirks of the promotion is Radisson allowing stays paid for by points or points + cash to count for the promotion. Staying one night in a category 1 Radisson property will set you back 9,000 points, and you would receive 15,000 points for your stay. This effectively will give you a net 6,000 Radisson points for zero expenditure! One thing about Radisson Rewards that we love is that you can transfer points for free. If your account address matches with someone you can transfer to them without issue; if your address differs you must have elite status for the transfer to go through. Think about the possibility of a family of 5 and some points earning/consolidation here.
This is the kind of promotion you should consider; 15,000 points is a healthy return and is enough for a free night at a category 2 property. With plenty of time to take advantage of the promotion, you may want to switch one of your upcoming one-night stays (and the same for a significant other) to a participating Radisson property, to maximize the promotion.
