    How do these offers compare with the historically best offers – especially Radisson? Can we still transfer Radisson Americas to Radisson Hotels (international)?

      Hi Rick, yes, you can transfer between Radisson Americas and Radisson Hotels (International). I think you need both accounts to have the same name and email address. Read this post for more info: https://travelwithgrant.boardingarea.com/2022/08/11/radisson-hotels-americas-officially-joins-choice-hotels-family-my-plan-for-my-points/

      Historically, the best offers I’ve seen are for up to 100% bonus with Radisson Americas. The last offer expired May 9 and the previous one expired on December 1, 2021.
