So apparently you can't get a refund through TCB if you used a BRG claim as well. Didn't see it discussed but figured I'd throw it out there as a data point.
Yes, the same happened to our BRG reservations. Also, reservations made through TCB for Park Inn never showed up.

Not true. I booked via the radisson web site, searched and paid for the lowest listed price for the room (no coupon, promo code, etc). Checked TCB today, they rejected cashback. So it has nothing to do with BRG. They just refused to pay, period.

TCB = TopCashBack ( http://www.topcashback.com )

BRG = Best Rate Guarantee

I'll add another note that 2 different stays at Country Inn and Suites where I submitted a BRG but was rejected are now showing that the vendor rejected it on TCB. I have submitted claims on both as I did pay the full rate at which I booked. We'll see what happens.

Also I have had around 165k points post from this promo so far with another 92k or so on the way!

Data point - I was successful in getting TCB to pay. I originally booked a country inn through TCB, and it tracked. Then submitted a BRG claim, got the lower rate, and it automatically showed up as a separate line item on TCB. The BRG rate just displayed as payable a day or two ago, and the original rate I had booked at showed rejected - which is correct. So YMMV. Lucky me, I guess

I have TCB in mine and my wife's account. I notice the one for my BRG was pulled back, then I noticed a new line showing the BRG rate I paid but it is in pending state. I have o Idea what is going to happen. Maybe I should grab the $$ available now so they don't get pulled. My wife has one that is a regular rate and it was recorded and appears to have been rejected.

I hate having to chase down things to get people to do what the promise to do UUGGHH.

There's an entire thread on using TCB for Radisson where this is being discussed. So as not to take over this generic big night giveaway thread.

Radisson just keeps on giving! Besides the 4500 e-rewards sign up bonus, I got 2k for the welcome promo, plus 2k online booking and on top of that the hotel's welcome gift for gold was a choice of items, I chose 3K. After the 20X points per $, and Gold Bonus 50%, I got the 50K. Largest payout ever!!!

Sorry for any confusion...I meant that I'll end up in a city with one on the last day so can still pick up that bonus. Downsides to living in the Caribbean, not much hotel choice for these kinds of things!

18,000 points for booking online
18,000 points for normal earnings (Average of $80.00 per room per night x 25 points per dollar)
414,000 bonus points
4,500 bonus points for signing my grandfather up through e-rewards

Total Cost: $720.00
Total points earned: 454,500

Converting 200,000 points for 36,000 AA miles and using 250,000 points for 5 nights at The May Fair London. I'll use 44,000 existing AA miles to polish off 2 Award tickets to London this fall with the Mrs.

That will do.

Where do the 414k Bonus points come from? Is there another promo?

And how do you get 25pts/$ instead of 20? Due to status?

I think it's...

9 rooms in total: 3 rooms booked by each of 3 people
So 50k + 44k + 44k = 138k for each of 3 people

If I make a reservation with the cash and points and then cancel a reservation before the penalty date , will the points be deposited back in my account right away?

Absolutely.
I did it twice today, switching around some stays at
a Radisson and Park Inn in Dallas.

The points were back in before I could
scroll to the top and see the balance !
