  • 40,000 renewal points each year when you renew your card

    • 5 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases everywhere else

Our Verdict

We saw this card offer a bonus of 100,000 points late last year, but this new 120,000 point bonus is the highest we’ve ever seen. This card used to be extremely popular when it was the Club Carlson card and offered the last night free benefit, but unfortunately that’s no longer the case. Standard bonus is 85,000 points. The major problem with this card is that it’s issued by U.S. Bank and getting approved is difficult, most people will want to apply for the U.S. Bank Altitude reserve if they haven’t already but that will depend on your travel goals.

Personally I think Radisson properties in the US are mostly underwhelming where as properties in Europe seem to be much better value. Check out these Things to Know about US Bank Credit Cards before applying. I’m unsure if this will be added to the best credit card bonus page, although I suspect it will be due to the fact it’s so much larger than the standard bonus and a good option for those who have already gotten the other good U.S. bank cards. Update: I will add it there, it can be great value for some readers.

Hoping someone sees this: I applied for this card when the bonus was 125K points, but somehow, I received the reduced offer of 50K points after first purchase plus 35K points after spending $2,500 within the first 90 days. I submitted a request to U.S. Bank, and they are asking for proof of the offer.

Does anyone have a printout or screenshot of the 125K point offer? I’d really appreciate if you could send it to me. Reply to this comment and I will give you my email address.

Edit – never mind, I used archive.org to get a snapshot from around the time I applied.

How did this work out for you? I never received any bonus at all. I called them and they told me to email them a copy of this page. Just did it today, don’t know how long it will take to get a response.

I messaged them today asking about an update, they replied that I should allow 6-8 weeks for the points to be added to my account. No statement on how many points…I guess I have to wait and see.

I received a letter today saying they would honor the original offer! This will make up the full difference (85K to 125K). My latest statement from yesterday showed an additional 40K points and they have posted to my Radisson Rewards account.

I opened a support ticket over the phone and referenced it when emailing them.

They never answered me for the case I have opened and kept telling me to reach out to US Bank, and repetitive hang up on me. It is soo annoying, any chance I can sue these people?

Do you have a case number I might be able to refer?

I called over the phone to open my initial case. The request for more information came through physical mail and asked for a response through physical mail. I cleaned up a printout of the offer splash page from archive.org around when I applied to submit as evidence. I don’t have any of the paperwork mailed to me, although I would have immediately noticed if I received any documentation in the mail saying that the offer was not for 125K points.

You should be contacting U.S. Bank from the start, not Radisson.

No. Read my other posts where I explicitly say I contacted U.S. Bank.

I picked up the card last month under the 120K promotion. I thought about asking for the extra 5K, but no need to have any eyes peeking at my account.

Does US Bank allow multiple accounts of the same product? Already have an altitude reserve and radisson rewards visa card.

If I apply again, would I be auto declined or would they actually consider it?

Declined, too many new accounts in past 12 months. Called recon, they weren’t able to do anything. According to customer service you can have multiple cards of the same product. Oh well, LOL/24.

I signed up for the 120k offer and they wouldn’t give the extra 5k.

Please note the free night certificate only comes after paying next years annual fee .

“When you spend $10,000 in eligible Net Purchases, and renew your card by paying the annual fee, you can earn one Radisson Rewards Visa® Reward Card Free Night e-Certificate (“e-Cert”).”

Does approval for the card mean approval for the SUB, as Chase does? or do they do similar to Amex where they will approve you for the card but may deny you for the SUB? Does having a business card open render you ineligible for the SUB on the personal card?
