If you are into hotels in Europe, you will want to take a look at this new 120,000 point offer for the Radisson Rewards card. But, just remember that this card will not be for everyone, even with the highest ever offer!
Highest Ever: New 120,000 Point Offer on the Radisson Rewards Card
Before it became the Radisson Rewards program, it was the Club Carlson program and it had a great, loyal following. A huge part of that was the amazing credit card perk that let you get the last night of an award stay for free, even on just a two night stay!
That was a great way to encourage people to stay at a hotel for more than one night but, of course, it was too good to last. They ended that perk, as well as the free night certificate for any hotel in the world. Now, you can only get hotels in the US and, to be honest, there aren’t that many that are very impressive!
But, with all that out of the way, this offer is still at its highest ever so you may want to look at it, especially for places where hotels typically cost quite a bit of cash. This can include places like northern Europe, especially Iceland.

Radisson Rewards Premier Credit Card Details
So, here are the details on this increased credit card offer:
- Receive 120,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 in the first 90 days
- Receive 40,000 renewal points each year when you renew the card
- Receive Gold status when you activate and use the card (if you already have Gold, you will receive 15 qualifying nights towards Platinum status)
- Earn 1 free night e-cert for every $10,000 you spend in a year (for redemption at US hotels)
- Earn 10 points per $1 at Radisson hotels
- Earn 5 points per $1 on purchases anywhere else
- Annual Fee: $75 (not waived the first year)
This card is issued by US Bank, which can be a difficult bank to get qualified for a card with. That being said, if you don’t have the US Bank Altitude Reserve card, you may want to consider that one first. Even though it has a higher annual fee (much higher!), it has more travel-friendly perks and bonuses. But, if you want to concentrate on European hotels, this Radisson card is a good offer to consider.
One more thing – at times, Aeroplan (the awards program of Air Canada) has a transfer bonus where you will get 100% bonus on transferred hotel points. During such a transfer bonus, you could transfer 120,000 Radisson Reward points to Aeroplan for 24,000 miles. That isn’t a great deal but does get you closer to a business class award to Europe, if that is something you would want.
