Radisson Rewards has launched a promotion called Dream Deals which is offering up to 30% on stays, along with 5,000 bonus points per stay. It doesn’t look like the promotion is necessarily working in the way advertised though, so keep an eye on the terms before making any reservations.

Quick Thoughts

A 30% discount and 5,000 bonus points per stay has the potential to be a generous offer, but all is not as it seems. For starters, the promotion period for properties in the US and Canada is different from those in the rest of the world. Even when it comes to the rest of the world, properties in Denmark, Norway and Sweden have a different promotion period to other countries.

Even more importantly though, the discount might not be as high as 30%, while you might not receive as many as 5,000 bonus points.

When doing a search for properties in Green Bay WI, the properties I looked at only displayed a 15% discount. That’s somewhat understandable as the terms of the Dream Deals promotion state that you’ll get up to a 30% discount rather than a guaranteed 30% off.

Country Inn & Suites Green Bay North

Clicking on Rate Details displays the terms of the offer. In there, it says that only 2,500 bonus points will be awarded, rather than the 5,000 promised by the promotion.

Thinking that this might be a one-off, I did a search in Williamsburg VA. Looking at the Country Inn & Suites Williamsburg East, there were the same issues. A discount of only 15% (with rates actually higher than the Advance Purchase rate)…

Country Inn & Suites Williamsburg East

…and again only 2,500 bonus points.

I’ve reached out to Radisson Rewards to seek clarification on why 5,000 bonus points is being advertised yet doesn’t seem to be offered on bookings.

Something else important to be aware of is that Dream Deals rates are non-refundable, so the higher discount is only worth it if your plans aren’t likely to change.

This had the potential to be a good promotion, but it’s been let down by discounts lower than those touted, half the bonus points that are supposed to be awarded and three completely different sets of promotion dates which vary based on which country you’re booking a stay in. That latter point seems needlessly confusing compared to offering the same worldwide promotion period.
