Radisson Rewards members get a 100% bonus when they buy Radisson points now through March 18, 2021. By maximizing this promotion, you can buy enough miles to book an overwater villa in the Maldives for just $245. Here's how.

You can buy Radisson Rewards points at just 0.35 cents per point with a minimum purchase of just 1,000 Radisson Rewards points. That's the best purchase rate that we've ever seen Radisson Rewards sell points, and it unlocks some incredible opportunities.

Buy Radisson Points Key Terms

If you buy the maximum number of points, you'll get a total of 160,000 points (80,000 purchased plus 80,000 bonus) for a total cost of $840. This works out to exactly 0.35 cents per point.

However, you can get this same 0.35 cents per point purchase rate at any purchase level. You can buy as few as 1,000 points and get 2,000 total points for just $7. That makes this promotion excellent for topping off your account with only the number of points you need for a redemption.

Buy Radisson Points to Book a Maldives Overwater Villa for $245

How good is this 0.35 cents per point purchase rate? Well, you can book an overwater villa in the Maldives for just $245 per night by buying Radisson points at this rate.

The new Radisson Blue Resort Maldives resort only costs 70,000 points per night.

And that doesn't just get you any room. You can book an overwater villa with a private pool at this redemption rate. Even better, the rewards redemption includes breakfast.

During this buy Radisson points promotion, you can buy exactly 70,000 points for just $245.

However, it critically doesn't include a transfer to and from the resort. And that $450 per person seaplane transfer fee can really add up!

Due to the purchase limit, each member can only buy enough Radisson points for two rewards nights at the Radisson Blu Resort Maldives. But, you can team up with a significant other to buy enough points to cover four nights. However, availability is currently tough to find.

Which Credit Card to Use

Radisson Rewards does not process the purchase of points directly. Instead, the purchase is processed by Points.com. This means you won't be able to get any travel bonus on the purchase of Radisson points. If you decide to take advantage of this promotion, your best option is to use a credit card optimized for everyday spending.

Final Thoughts

We at AwardWallet never recommend buying points or miles speculatively. However, the example of buying Radisson Rewards points to get an overwater villa in the Maldives for just $245 per night is a perfect example of how buy points promotions can make a lot of sense.

While this is an extreme example, there are plenty of other ways to maximize this buy points promotion. If you are looking to boost your balance for a specific redemption, this promotion is a good opportunity.

    That is an amazing deal. I wish I saw this before the deadline though. Currently the price is $492/night which still does not seem bad for what you are getting. Hopefully the points buying offer for this hotel happens again. I’ll be watching out for it.

  • Avatar

    This place sure does look amazing. while I’m not traveling for pleasure yet, I have this on my bucket list. this is an interesting way to achieve this, someday.

  • Avatar

    We are still under travel restrictions at the moment. How flexible are these bookings? Especially if we need to cancel because of the pandemic?

    • Avatar

      In the example I highlighted in the post, there’s free cancellation more than 2 weeks in advance. That’s not great, but at least you have some flexibility. The bigger “issue” is that you’ll only get refunded in points. So, you’ll still be out the cash you paid for the points.

  • Avatar

    Interesting deal….Radisson has some solid properties in Europe as well that may make this worth a speculative purchase if you’re planning on heading back to the Continent once all the travel restrictions ease.

    Would a Marriott Gold member receive complimentary breakfast here?

    Por ese precio si que es una buena opción a tener en cuenta el alquilar un villa de lujo como estas en las Maldivas. Gran oferta

    How far out can you get the 70,000 point bonus? I would love to take a trip here once the pandemic is over. I’m a bit hesitant to purchase points if there is a chance the trip would get cancelled, though.

  • Avatar

    This does look like an incredible deal! I had somehow totally missed the fact there are Radisson properties in Maldives! Some good use for all those points some day in the future 🙂

    Great option for travel to the Maldives! This place is usually very expensive. In this opportunity we can travel for an acceptable price. Whit this pandemic restricts the food service is permitted as usually?

    • Avatar

      The recent reviews of the property make it seem that food service is still available and even flexible. But, it can’t hurt to reach out to the property to confirm before you book.

  • Avatar

    “However, availability is currently tough to find.” Hmm, are they restricting availability or are lots of people traveling to the Maldives in this environment to get away from it all?

  • Avatar

    Does anyone know how good the property is ? How does it compare to the Hilton and Marriott properties ?

  • Avatar

    For $245 I would consider this when I normally never stay at hotels!

  • Avatar

    Very good offer.
    Especially for the resort mentioned in the article.
    Maybe there are other good opportunites in other places.

  • Avatar

    I’ve always dreamed of bringing my wife to an over-the-water bungalow like this, whether it be in the Maldives, Bali, Tahiti, or anywhere. Travel restrictions have made that even further down the line.

  • Avatar

    Wow, this looks like an amazing deal! Do similar offers/promos occur often? I’m hesitant to travel during the pandemic but hope to be able to jump on a deal like this in the future.

  • Avatar

    Even though, I still think this isn’t a good time to travel, I believe this is a great opportunity. I was reviewing the Resort and it’s just amazing. It’s worth the risk. A change of environment is very beneficial to temporary scape from this madness

  • Avatar

    What’s the best way to check availability for these rooms? I can’t find a way other than trying different combinations of specific check in and check out dates. I’m hoping there’s a more efficient way to do this….

    Thx, Matt

    • Avatar

      Unfortunately, that’s what Radisson is making us resort to in order to find availability. It’s not very user friendly!

  • Avatar

    Any deals on Bali? I am really wanting to go there.

  • Avatar

    This is a n outsized reward for points. However all hotels in Maldives are very expensive and the meals you take there are also expensive.

    Such a pity the deadline has now passed, it was such a great promotion!

    This is a great deal. I hope I can go there once in my life.

    Compared to how much overwater bungalows normally cost this is amazing – my wife and I wish we could have done this for our honeymoon!

  • Avatar

    Beautiful venue + attractive deal…if I weren’t refraining from non-essential travel during the pandemic.

  • Avatar

    Thanks for sharing. It’s a solid offer no doubt. I agree they should extend the expiration beyond December 20,

  • Avatar

    Wow, the Radisson Group even has properties in exotic destinations!

    • Avatar

      @Charles – Yes, Radisson does have a handful of true aspirational properties. When visiting the Maldives, I dearly love the Conrad, but this new Radisson is definitely on my list to visit very soon.

  • Avatar

    I really want to go there…

  • Avatar

    I would love to go to the Maldives. However I will not be buying any Radisson points at this time. Staying close to home until there’s a vaccine for COVID-19.

  • Avatar

    How nice to know there is a Radisson with overwater villas in the Maldives! I have a new contract which a Radisson will be a convenient hotel so I won’t be buying any points at this time, but hopefully they will have more promotions like this for the future.

    Great tips! Wish I could do all in on this but not looking to travel but this is tempting.

    This is a great deal but buying points in hopes of doing this makes me nervous…will have to think about this deal though because it is awesome…

    One of the better, lesser known programs. Have had some great redemptions in Europe.
