a. Earning Points:
i. At Participating Properties: Radisson Rewards members may earn 20 points per U.S. dollar spent on Room Charges and Eligible Food and Beverages at Participating Properties. Discount does not apply to tax or tip, alcoholic beverages, room service or in-room dining, catering or banquets, or group or parties of six or more. You must provide your Radisson Rewards member number when the reservation is made or at check-in. No points will be earned and no Eligible Nights/Stay for earning Elite Status will be credited if a property ceases to be a Participating Property after a reservation is made but before an Eligible Stay.
Points are considered earned once the stay has been completed, all charges have been fully paid, and the points have been added to your account. Points are not available for redemption before an Eligible Stay has been completed, fully paid and added to your account. Points may be earned by only one Radisson Rewards member per Eligible Stay, and that member must appear on the reservation and be the registered guest.
Points may be earned on up to three rooms booked under the same reservation, but credit for multiple rooms must be requested at or before the time of check-in and the member must appear on the reservation for at least one of the booked rooms and be a registered guest for the duration of the Eligible Stay. Points may not be earned for any other reservations that do not include the Radisson Rewards member’s name on the reservation and for which the member is not the registered guest.
ii. Through Partners: Radisson Rewards members may earn points with our Partners. These opportunities may vary based on the Radisson Rewards member’s country of residence, may not be available to all members, are subject to change at any time without notice, are governed by these Program Terms, and are subject to additional terms and conditions as required by an individual Partner. Partners are independent entities and we are not responsible for the nature or quality of products or services provided by any Partners, nor for any solicitation or marketing efforts by any Partners. You are responsible for complying with Partners terms and conditions, and privacy and usage policies. We are not responsible for and assume no liability for the terms, changes or discontinuances of Partners’ terms, conditions, privacy and usage policies, products or services.
Radisson Rewards members may not earn points and Partner benefits for the same activity. By providing your Radisson Rewards member number to a Participating Property, you indicate your preference to earn points.
iii. Purchasing Points: We may offer Radisson Rewards members, from time to time and in our sole discretion, the option to purchase points. We currently offer members the option to purchase points through Points.com. Additional terms and conditions apply, and may be found at www.radissonhotelsamericas.com/en-us/rewards/redeem/points. Points that are purchased are subject to these Program Terms. Any other sale, purchase, barter, auction, gift, transfer or assignment of points, except as may be specifically allowed in these Program Terms, is prohibited and will not be honored. Members redeeming points for miles with Lufthansa’s Miles & More program will not be allowed to complete the transaction if they have ever purchased points or been gifted points in their Radisson Rewards account for the lifetime of the account.

Points for Event Purchases may not be earned where prohibited by applicable law, rule or regulation. You must request to earn points for Event Purchases at the time the meeting, event or convention is booked by including your name and Radisson Rewards membership number on the contract with the Participating Property.

You do not have to attend the meeting or event to be eligible to earn points for Event Purchases. Some services and amenities may not be provided directly by the Participating Property, and these and other charges, including charges for cancellation, attrition and other payments, may not be eligible as Event Purchases. Nights or stays associated with a meeting or event do not count towards your Elite Status.
Disclosure and Consent: You are responsible for disclosing to and receiving consent from your employer, principal and/or client that you will earn points and other incentives received from Radisson Rewards for Business, and must comply with any applicable gift and incentive policies.
2. Earning Points for Booking Hotel Stays: Small + Medium Enterprise (SME) Members may earn 10 points per dollar spent for completed Room charges at Participating Properties when booking travel for others. Application for Radisson Rewards for Business is open to individual persons who have acknowledged and agreed to the Program’s terms and conditions and who are: (i) invited and approved by Radisson Rewards, in its sole discretion; (ii) located in eligible countries, as determined in our sole discretion; (iii) who are of majority of age in their place of residence; (iv) responsible for the reservation of hotel rooms on behalf of their employer’s or organization; (v) employed by an organization that Radisson Rewards has approved in its sole discretion; and (vi) not a professional travel agent who books for individuals outside his/her employer and/or organization.

b. Redeeming Points:
i. Generally: Radisson Rewards members may redeem points at Participating Properties or through our Partners. Points may be redeemed for the benefit of the Radisson Rewards member or for another individual as a gift. Except for transfers of points expressly allowed in these Program Terms or with Radisson Hotels Americas’ written consent, points may not otherwise be sold, exchanged, bartered, brokered, transferred, purchased, auctioned or given away. Redemption options are subject to change from time to time without notice in our sole discretion. Members redeeming points for miles with Lufthansa’s Miles & More program will not be allowed to complete the transaction if they have ever purchased points or been gifted points in their Radisson Rewards account for the lifetime of the account.
When redeeming points, you will be required to verify your Radisson Rewards account information. The corresponding number of points will be subtracted from your Radisson Rewards account at the time the transaction is initiated, and there must be a sufficient number of points in your Radisson Rewards account at that time for the transaction. Points in two or more different accounts may not be combined for redemption. Redemption transactions may be approved or revoked in the sole discretion of Radisson Hotels Americas.
ii. At Participating Properties:
1. Award Nights: Radisson Rewards members may redeem points for Award Nights at Participating Properties, subject to availability. Award Night reservations must be made in advance, and must be made through the Radisson Rewards website, a Radisson Hotels Americas brand website, a Radisson Hotels Americas mobile website, or through Radisson Hotels Americas’ telephone reservation center. Award Nights may not be combined with other certificates, discounts, packages or promotional offers and are not commissionable, including without limitation commissions to travel agents. Award Nights apply to a standard room with standard occupancy. Additional occupants are subject to the Participating Property’s standard extra person charges. Award Nights are subject to each Participating Property’s cancellation, guarantee and deposit policies. Points equal to one night of an Award Night reservation will be deducted from your account if your reservation is not canceled in accordance with the Participating Property’s cancellation policy. Any incidental charges in connection with an Award Night are the sole responsibility of the member.
If a hotel ceases to be a Participating Property after an Award Night reservation is made, but before the actual stay, Radisson Hotels Americas will use reasonable efforts to have the hotel honor the Award Night reservation, but cannot and does not guarantee that any such Award Night reservations will be honored. In addition, at the discretion of Radisson Hotels Americas, Award Nights may not be available for reservation at a hotel once it is determined that such hotel will be leaving the Radisson Hotels Americas system or otherwise will cease to be a hotel in the Radisson Hotels Americas system regardless of the length of time before such hotel actually leaves the system.
2. Express Awards: Radisson Rewards members may redeem points for Express Awards. Express Awards, redemption requirements, and any additional terms and conditions are determined by each Participating Property in its sole discretion.
iii. Through Partners: Radisson Rewards members may redeem points with our Partners. Redemption opportunities and requirements with each Partner vary, are not available where prohibited by law, are subject to change at any time, are governed by these Program Terms, and are subject to additional terms and conditions as required by an individual Partner. Partners are independent entities and we are not responsible for the nature or quality of products or services provided by any Partners, nor for any solicitation or marketing efforts by any Partners. You are responsible for directly checking and complying with a Partners’ terms, conditions, and privacy and usage policies. We are not responsible for and assume no liability for the terms, changes or discontinuances of Partners’ terms, conditions, privacy and usage policies, products or services.
iv. Donating Points: Radisson Rewards members may donate points to certain nonprofit organizations, as determined by us from time to time in our sole discretion. Any other donation, transfer or gift of points is prohibited and will not be honored. Donated points are not tax deductible.
c. Elite Status: Radisson Rewards members may qualify for Elite Status. Benefits, awards, redemption opportunities and requirements for Elite Status are determined by us from time to time in our sole discretion. Members are eligible for Elite Status depending on the number of Eligible Nights or Eligible Stays at Participating Properties in a calendar year as follows:
i. Silver Elite Status: Radisson Rewards members may earn Silver Elite Status with at least 9 Eligible Nights or 6 Eligible Stays in one calendar year.
ii. Gold Elite Status: Radisson Rewards members may earn Gold Elite Status with at least 30 Eligible Nights or 20 Eligible Stays in one calendar year.
iii. Platinum Elite Status: Radisson Rewards members may earn Platinum Elite Status with at least 60 Eligible Nights or 30 Eligible Stays in one calendar year.
Once you qualify for Elite Status, you will maintain that status for the remainder of the then-current calendar year and through the following Program year, which runs from March 1 to February 28/29. We may from time to time grant discretionary Elite Status or offer promotion(s) that modify the criteria necessary to earn Elite Status. Unless provided by the terms of a promotion, a discretionary or promotional upgrade to an Elite Status does not waive the full number of Eligible Nights or Eligible Stays required for the next Elite Status or modify the length of time the Elite Status will remain in effect.
i. Online Account: Once you are enrolled in Radisson Rewards, you must activate your online account. Radisson Hotels Americas will endeavor to credit your account with points on a timely basis. You are responsible for verifying that points are properly credited to your Radisson Rewards account. Any claim for points not properly credited must be received by Radisson Hotels Americas with supporting documentation within six (6) months of the date of the claimed accrual of such points.
ii. Transfers: Except as expressly allowed in these Program Terms or with Radisson Hotels Americas’ written consent, Radisson Rewards membership, points, Award Nights, Express Awards, Elite Status and other Program benefits may not be sold, exchanged, bartered, brokered, transferred, purchased, auctioned or given away, including without limitation as part of a domestic relations matter, divorce, inheritance, or otherwise by operation of law.
1. Transfers by Members with Elite Status: Radisson Rewards members with Elite Status may transfer points from that member’s account to another Radisson Rewards account upon request.
2. Transfers within a Household: Radisson Rewards members may transfer points to another Radisson Rewards member who resides in the same household, provided both individuals have been Radisson Rewards members for at least one year and the addresses for both accounts involved in the transfer have not been updated within thirty (30) days prior to the transfer request. Radisson Hotels Americas reserves the right to require proof of eligibility or residency and, in its sole discretion, deny any request to transfer points.
3. Transfers upon Death: Points belonging to a Radisson Rewards member who is deceased may be transferred to the Radisson Rewards account of the deceased member’s beneficiary(ies) in our sole discretion. The deceased member’s membership in Radisson Rewards must have been in good standing at the time of death. The transfer request must include documentation showing proof of death, such as a death certificate, and proof of authority to make the request, such as court documents or the decedent’s will. Requests must be made within one (1) year of the date of death or the deceased member’s account will be closed and all points forfeited.
iii. No Cash Value: Except where required by law, points have no cash value and do not constitute member property. Accumulation of points does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to any awards or the Program. As a Radisson Rewards member, the only right you acquire in points is the opportunity to surrender them for redemption in accordance with these Program Terms.
b. Subject to Applicable Law: Membership and participation in Radisson Rewards, and the collection and redemption of points, is subject to and may be void where prohibited or restricted by applicable law, rule or regulation, or employer’s or customer’s policies or requirements.
