Good afternoon everyone. A few weeks ago, I wrote Reminiscing About and my Plan for my US Bank Radisson Rewards Premier & Business Credit Cards. In that post, I covered the history of events from Club Carlton to Radisson Rewards to Radisson Hotels Americas and all the major changes in between. I also covered the upcoming credit card changes and ultimately decided to keep my current credit cards as is and let the product changes occur (to get the prorated annual fee refunds). But the next big question to answer is: What should I do with my stash of 200K Radisson Hotels Americas Points? I don’t have an exact answer, but I will share some of the best options that are currently available.
First off, I have both a personal and business Radisson Hotels Americas account with a combined point balance of around 200K points. Remember, you can easily move points between accounts, just call the customer service number (888-288-8889).
The easiest option would be to redeem your points for an award stay within the Americas. Here is the award chart for all hotels in the Americas. Most of the best properties in the Americas are in the 60K – 75K range per night, so I should be able to get about 3 nights in a nice Radisson Blu property. If you are not interested in an award stay in the Americas, keep reading to find out what other options are available.
