Is there a way to tell that you have reached the 10K threshold? Adding up what I have spent so far this year, I think I have made it, but would feel stupid if I fell a few dollars short. With the Hilton Amex cards, there is a tracker on your online dashboard; I wish US Bank would do the same.

Can a (US) Radisson Rewards hotel apply blackout dates and limit use of e-certs (or points redemption)?

I thought if a standard room was available for booking a cash rate, it was supposed to be available for e-cert (or points) booking. However Radisson Rewards member service phone rep seem to say individual properties can block these redemptions.

I think they can limit supply and thus apply blackout dates for the e-certs. It is my understanding that the e-certs are not pulled from the same inventory as the award rooms but I might be mistaken. I am basing this on comments I have read in the past where people could book a points award room for a certain day but they could NOT use the e-certs for the same day.

Not sure if posting your question in a credit card promo spend thread is going to get the most comments since it is kind of off topic.

Do they post promotions like this fairly often? Was trying to calculate what my point accumulation per year would be. If something like this is usually offered yearly I might as well chalk up another 20k!

I have seen occasional targeted promos listed on Doctor of Credit for the Radisson card. I got the card in January 2019. I was not targeted for this promo (spend $500/mo x3 mo, get 10K), but for the months of November/December last year I was targeted for a different promo--double points on up to the next $2000 spent. So that worked out to 10x points per dollar spent on everyday purchases. For me, this was enough to get me to use the card. You also have to consider if putting the extra spend on the card makes it then worth going for the free night certificate. For example, since I maxed this out, I would only need to spend another $8K more to get a free night cert.

Since these are targeted, there is no guarantee. It does seem like a fair number of people with the card get targeted for some promotion, at least.

Of note, the points post very slowly. I completed the promo by mid November, with the promo lasting until the end of the December. It was 10-11 weeks after that (last week) that the bonus points actually posted.

I just got another targeted offer, but it was really weak. For June & July, 2 extra points per dollar at grocery stores and drug stores (up to $1K spend). Given the grocery bonuses on other cards, this is almost laughable.

I’ve had the card for a number of years. Targeted promos come around every so often but the one referenced above (which I was targeted for anD took advantage of as noted above) was one of the best I can remember. Most of the other targeted promos have had Max earning rates at much lower levels.
