There was a time, a few years back, when Radisson Rewards were all the rage.

The program often ran excellent promotions and building your points balance was relatively easy. That’s changed in recent years, so there is no longer a fever pitch to earn Radisson Rewards. However, the program still runs great promotions on occasion that make your Radisson Rewards points more valuable.

The new One.Two.Free. promotion is a great example. And, if you have some Radisson Rewards points lying fallow in your account anyway, this is a good time to spend them.

Before we start, remember that Radisson recently created a new program for members based in the Americas. This promotion is offered to all Radisson Rewards Americas members and is not available to members of the international Radisson Rewards program at the time of writing.

Now back to the promotion. Right now, if you redeem Radisson Rewards points for a two-night stay at participating Radisson Hotels Americas properties between Sept. 8–Dec. 31, 2021, you’ll receive a free night e-Cert to use between Jan. 17–May 23, 2022. The bonus e-Cert makes it easy to plan a short trip by the end of the year and have another trip to look forward to early next year.

As a refresher, Radisson Rewards has five hotel categories and the lowest tier costs just 15,000 points per night.

Before booking your reward stay, you must register for this promotion.

You can earn up to five free night e-Certs: one for each award night stay of two nights or more.

If you redeem your points to stay at a Category 1–3 hotel, you’ll receive an e-Cert by email for any Radisson property in those category tiers. Redemptions for award night stays at a Category 4 or 5 hotel will receive an e-Cert by email that can be used at any of Radisson’s 600+ hotels in the Americas.
