Redeem For Free Nights
The best value of Radisson Rewards Points will be when you use them for free nights at Radisson brand hotels. This will typically give you an average value of around 0.4 cents per point, but it's possible to get more or less depending on the hotel. Let's take a look at some examples. Let's check out the first few Radisson hotels that pop up near Dallas, Texas and compare the cost of the hotel in cash, points and cash + points.
Let's look at the overall value of the redemptions for these three hotels.
|Hotel Name||Points Value||Cash+Points Value|
|Radisson Hotel Dallas North-Addison||0.34 Cents||0.61 Cents|
|Country Inn & Suites, DFW Airport S.||0.56 Cents||0.53 Cents|
|Country Inn & Suites, Grand Prairie-DFW-Arlington||0.52 Cents||0.49 Cents|
With the exception of the all points redemption for the Radisson Hotel Dallas North-Addison, the rest of the redemptions are quite nice. They offer more than the average value I peg them at and all would suitable options for booking on rewards points.
Searching other cities such as Detroit, Atlanta, and Denver produced the same results with point values between 0.3 and 0.6 cents. Same goes for overseas in which London, United Kingdom's Radisson Blu properties gave me values of 0.3 to 0.5 cents (USD). It's safe to say that the average for Radisson Rewards Points hovers slight about 0.4 cents per point.
Outside of free nights at Radisson Hotels, you can also redeem your points for in-room charges, gift cards, a credit to cover the TSA PreCheck application fee, and Priority Pass membership. Points also be donated to charity.
In-Hotel Express Awards
You can use Radisson Rewards Points towards purchases made at the hotel which includes:
- In-Hotel Food & Beverage
- In-Room Movie
- Room Upgrade
- Meetings & Events
The value you get out of these will vary and hotels may offer different awards based on location. You'll want to check with the front desk to see which Express Awards are available when visiting a hotel.
Redeeming your Radisson Rewards Points for gift cards will give you a value of 0.138 to 0.147 depending on the denomination. For whatever reason, the $25 gift card gives the lowest value, even lower than that of the $10 gift card. The table below shows the costs for these redemptions and the value you'll receive out of each..

|$10 Gift Cards||7,000 Points||0.142 Cents|

|$50 Gift Cards||34,000 Points||0.147 Cents|

Prepaid Visa Cards
Radisson Rewards Points can be redeemed for Radisson Prepaid Visa Cards which are accepted anywhere VISA is accepted. You can pick up these Prepaid cards in denominations of $25, $50, and $100 each for 20,000 points, 35,000 points, and 67,000 points respectively. The $100 prepaid Visa will give you the most value of 0.149 cents per point whereas the $25 gift card will give you the lowest value of 0.125 cents per point.
Radisson Rewards Points can be redeemed for a Priority Pass invitation code for 125,000 points. The cost of standard membership is $249, so you're looking at a point value of 0.199 cents per point. Priority Pass grants you access to more than 1,000 airport lounges across the world. It's a useful benefit that is featured on many credit cards.
You can donate your Radisson Rewards Points to several charities and foundations. Those charities are:
- SOS Children's Villages
- American Red Cross
- First Climate
The starting redemption value varies, but they all offer the same point value of 0.16 cents per point.
Transfer Radisson Points To Partners
Radisson Rewards Points can be transferred to over 20 airline partners at a 10:1 ratio. This means that every 1,000 Radisson Rewards Points will equal 100 airline miles. This can be an okay option if you really need to top off one of your frequent flyer accounts, but the ratio is quite low. If you frequent Radisson properties, I recommend sticking to using points for free nights as they will generally offer you more value.
You can use the Radisson Transfer Partners Calculator to calculate the transfer of points to airline miles with Radisson's partners.
Radisson Rewards Points can be redeemed for some solid value when you consider how many you can earn at once. Even with the 0.4 cents per point average, you earn 20 base points per $1 spent which is two times as much when compared to many other hotel loyalty programs such as Marriott, Hilton, and IHG.
