Enter my “Rad” Giveaway – 4 Free Nights At Any Radisson Blu or Radisson in North America

This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.

In honor of Radisson’s 50th anniversary, the chain has been giving away one free night at any Radisson Hotel once a day for 50 days in its “50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Rooms” campaign – and today, I’m giving away that free room right here on The Points Guy.

Except, it’s not just one free night in any Radisson or Radisson Blu Hotel in North America – I was also offered three additional free nights give away to my readers as well!  So I am giving away a total of four individual free night vouchers to four lucky TPG readers.

Each voucher is valid for a free night in a standard room at double occupancy in the North American Radisson Blu or Radisson of your choice. The vouchers will expire one year after their issue date and the full terms will be located on the vouchers themselves.

To find out more about the contest you can “like” Radisson’s Facebook page, where you can also learn fun facts like how Carlson acquired its first Radisson hotel in downtown Minneapolis in 1962 and has now grown to over 400 properties globally with plans for a total of 600 by 2015.

Since my site is all about loyalty programs, I want you to tell me something you like about Club Carlson – whether it’s a specific redemption, an aspect of the overall program, something about their new line of credit cards, or any lesser known benefits that people might not be aware of that you really like. That way, we can all learn something new from each other.

There are four different ways you can enter, and you can enter once via each method. All you need to do is tell me what you like about the Club Carlson program (even if it is just your favorite property and how many points it takes to redeem there).

Just be sure that when you comment, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram that there is a way the TPG team can get in touch with you to notify you that you have won.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, so enter now, and good luck!
