Promotion is valid from 27 April to 31 May 2014, both dates inclusive.

Is "both dates inclusive" needed?

Thanks.

    ... American English: Promotion is valid 27 April through 31 May, 2014.
    Correct as regards the use of "through," but we also usually reverse the order of the month and the date:

    American English: Promotion is valid April 27 through May 31, 2014. (Some would also change the numerals to ordinals: April 27th, May 31st. That's a matter of style.)
