Radisson is having a big giveaway on May 15th.
Here’s the details updated May 15
THE FIRST 100,000 PEOPLE TO REGISTER FOR THE
RADISSON BIG NIGHT GIVEAWAY WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE
50,000 BONUS GOLD POINTS® – THAT’S ENOUGH FOR
A NIGHT AT ANY RADISSON OR RADISSON BLU HOTEL WORLDWIDE.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
- Register for the Promotion by clicking on the “Register Now” button below. You’ll need to be a Club CarlsonSM member to register. Not a member? No problem, just follow the “Join and Register” link after the video.
- Watch a short video showcasing Club Carlson and complete the short online form.
- Complete a qualifying stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blu hotel around the world between May 15 and July 15, 2012.
- The 50,000 bonus Gold Points® will be deposited into your Club Carlson account within 6 – 8 weeks of completing your qualifying stay. That’s enough points for a night at any Radisson or Radisson Blu hotel around the world.
AND, the 50,000 bonus Gold Points® are in addition to the number of standard Gold Points® awarded for your stay. PLUS, if you book your stay on radisson.com you will earn at least an additional 1,000 bonus Gold Points® with our online booking bonus.
The web site does not provide any details, but the blogosphere is suspecting the first 100K people to register and then stay at a Radisson or Radisson Blu property will get 50K points, then 15K for the later registrants.
With 50K points, you can stay free at their highest tier hotel, or you can get a few nights at their lower tier hotels, which are 9K or 15K points a night. They also have a nice points + cash option, see here for the redemption details.
On Twitter @Radisson indicates going live at May 15 at 12:01 a.m. CDT which is 13 hours behind Hong Kong, so be ready to register at 13:00 May 15th HKT.
The timer countdown on the web page is incorrect. I wondered why Radisson use HKT? With Carlson based in the US I would’ve thought the program to be timed to a US time zone. I did try adjusting the clock on my computer and the web site changes the countdown time, so it’s not programmed correctly. (Radisson, get better web programmers!, but I digress.)
Radisson doesn’t have too many properties in Asia, but here’s a map indication their locations.
