(EXPIRED) $5 rooms at Radisson Blue Mall of America (book on 6/14, very limited)

The Radisson Blu Mall of America is running a 5th Birthday Promotion that looks pretty cool: at 3pm Central Time on June 14th, they will offer a flash sale with $5 and $99 gift certificates valid for a single night in a Superior Room. I’m sure that getting a $5 certificate will be akin to winning the lottery, but the good news is that the certificates will be valid until June 14th, 2019.

The Deal

  • Radisson Blu Mall of America will offer gift certificates for $5 and $99 – either will be valid for a one-night stay in a Superior Room through June 14, 2019
  • Deal goes live at 3pm Central Time on June 14, 2018; at that time, call the Radisson Blu Mall of America Contest Line at 952.851.4036

Key Terms

  • Callers will be assisted on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last
  • Blackout dates apply
  • Gift certificate cannot be combined with any other discount, promotion or offer
  • Limited to one per person
  • Goes live at 3pm Central Time on June 14, 2018

Quick Thoughts

This deal will likely be somewhat like winning the lottery, though when the Conrad Chicago ran a similar promotion last year I was able to reserve rooms at the higher promotional rate after continuously calling for a while. I wouldn’t count on success, but it’s worth a phone call if you’re around the phone at 3pm Central on June 14th.

I actually stayed at the Radisson Blu Mall of America last February and had a terrific stay. The hotel is clean and comfortable and a nice little respite from the hustle and bustle of the mall below. I imagine it is especially useful to have access to a room for a nap, shower, and relaxation if you have a partner who shops ’till you drop. I’d definitely stay there again.

Keep in mind that if you are lucky enough to get through before they run out, you can only buy one certificate per person and there will be blackout dates. My assumption is that availability for the certificate will match award availability. While the terms state that the gift certificate cannot be combined with any other discount, promotion, or offer, I would think you could stack it with some award nights before or after or certificates earned from spend on the Radisson Rewards Visa cards.

There are also a number of other promotions going on including Blu Velvet Birthday Cake available in the hotel restaurant and a “Celebrate your Unibirthday with Blu” package that includes a room, a couple of slices of Blu Velvet cake, a pinata, and party hats for $209. Find more information on that package here.

I’ll go into this deal with low expectations, but I set a reminder on my phone to call on June 14th because I’ve got nothing to lose but a few percent of my phone battery hitting redial.

Very confusing, “… they will offer a flash sale with $5 and $99 gift certificates valid for a single night in a Superior Room.” I’m sorry, but what does this mean?

“3pm CST on June 14th” So is it really Central Standard Time, or is it CDT, Central Daylight Time, which is what we are on now?

It’s unfortunate that we don’t know how many $5 rooms there are, as that would be useful in assessing our chances of getting one.

[…] $5 rooms at Radisson Blue Mall of America (book on 6/14, very limited) by Frequent Miler. Personally I don’t think this is even worth trying for, but as FM says if you have some free time and could use a cheap room then why not go for it. […]

according to the twin cities biz mag, there were only 30 certificates for $5.

Tried calling right at 3pm, busy tone for the next 5 minutes of calling. decided after that that its not worth it
