Choice Hotels Enables Point Transfers with Radisson Rewards Americas
Choice Hotels International is providing more redemption options for Choice Privileges and Radisson Rewards Americas members. Beginning today, travelers can now exchange points between the two loyalty programs.
To transfer points, guests need to be members of both Choice Privileges and Radisson Rewards Americas, which are free to join. Members can log into their account on either ChoiceHotels.com or RadissonHotelsAmericas.com and follow the prompts to transfer points between accounts.
Point transfers are already live. The transfer ratio is two Radisson Rewards Americas points per one Choice Privileges point. After you link your accounts, you can transfer 500 to 250,000 Choice points or 1,000 to 500,000 Radisson points per transaction. Point transfers are normally instant, but may take up to 24 hours in some cases. There’s a limit of 12 exchanges in total each calendar year.
For Choice Privileges members, this creates the opportunity to redeem points at more than 600 Radisson Hotels Americas properties, including resorts in the sought-after vacation destinations of Aruba, Punta Cana, or Miami, and top cities like Toronto. In addition to the thousands of Choice Privileges participating properties that Radisson Rewards Americas members can redeem points at, they can continue redeeming at Radisson Hotels in United States, Canada, Caribbean, and Latin America.
Travelers can reap the benefits of both loyalty programs even more easily, including:
- Redeeming points at more than 7,500 properties across a diverse set of 22 brands in 46 countries and territories. Award nights start at 6,000 Choice Privileges Points or 12,000 Radisson Rewards Americas points.
- Access to lower, member-only rates when booking directly with Choice Privileges or Radisson Rewards Americas. Other membership benefits may include room upgrades, early check-in, late check-out and more.
- Ability to redeem points for gift cards at top gas, restaurant and retail brands.
- Ability to redeem points for stays at Bluegreen Vacations, PENN Entertainment casino resorts and hotels and now at the iconic Las Vegas hotel Circus Circus Hotel & Casino.
- Ability to redeem points for exclusive college sports experiences through Choice Privileges Experiences, including access to the court, game tunnel, meet-and-greets and more— with redemptions starting at 40,000 Choice Privileges Points.
Choice Hotels also offers status matching with Radisson Hotels Americas following the company’s acquisition of Radisson Hotels Americas last summer.
