I did BRG for the first one as well and then points/cash for the others. You should have better rate options that way. Radissions were $66 with tax that way in SLC.

Check her email, she should have gotten a confirmation email immediately after registration.

Just reregister with the account number. If that works, she never was registered. If she is already registered, it'll tell you

Says already registered no need to register again!!

Going to do a cash and points reservation for tomorrow $66 + 5000 cc points for the 44,000 points and then she is done.

THANKS!

Radisson

Me- 2,000 booking online, 2,925 normal earning, 50,000 bonus (54,925 for $0.00 as my employer covered my rate on a work trip)

Wife- 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 50,000 bonus, -5,000 C+P rate (47,300 for $72.00)

Grandpa- 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 50,000 bonus, -5,000 C+P rate (47,300 for $72.00)

Grandma- 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 50,000 bonus, -5,000 C+P rate (47,300 for $72.00)

Mother-in-Law: 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 50,000 bonus, -5,000 C+P rate (47,300 for $72.00)

Park Inn

Me, 2,000 booking online, 1,625 normal earning, 44,000 bonus (47,625 for $0.00 as we were never charged on a BRG claim)

Wife- 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 44,000 bonus (46,300 for $0.00 as we were never charged on a BRG claim)

Country Inn

Me: 2,000 booking online, 2,550 normal earning, 44,000 bonus (48,550 for $0.00 as my employer covered my rate on a work trip)

Wife- 1,000 booking online, 1,300 normal earning, 44,000 bonus, -5,000 for a C+P rate (41,300 for $78.00)

Total points earned from promo transfered to my account: 427,900
Total cost to obtain: $366.00

-200,000 points were converted to 36,000 AA miles; 44,000 existing miles were added for 2 roundtrip tickets in coach to/from London
-132,000 points were converted to 3 nights at the Radisson Blu Berlin
-95,900 points + 54,100 existing points from the last promo were converted to 3 nights at the London May Fair

We will use our Hyatt credit card nights for 2 nights at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome. ($85.00 annual fee) We will also use $200.00 worth of Best Western travel cards to book 2 nights in Herford, Germany to visit family. (Garnered through BRG claims for 2 work trips to Tulsa, OK)

Not bad at all!

That's under $40 ai per night for 9 stays. You must have done some impressive BRG.

I can see the ability to transfer points going away or being greatly tightened very soon based on recent posts!

4 out of 9 stays cost me nothing. C+P rates brought things down the rest of the way

The registration for Radisson 50K CC bonus points is full up; so if you did not register in time, the bonus is now only 15k points. To qualify for the 50K bonus, you need to have checked out of a Radisson hotel by 15th July.

I don't know the conditions for the Country Inn or Park Inn bonus point giveaways.

There is a Park Plaza 50K bonus points giveaway requiring registration and a stay at a Park Plaza hotel by 28 August.

Sorry: didn't see that this question had been answered already.

You are correct:

I, too, have waited over a week now - and the points have yet to post.

There are among us those who need to brag, in great detail. Bragging is fun. But not in such detail in FlyerTalk. It does not help the collective good, especially with a very young program. But it is done.
