While I realize this promotion started awhile ago, there is still ample time to register and take advantage if you desire!
Choice Privileges is offering a great promotion starting next week with every two stays you will earn 5,000 bonus points. While this promotion is advertised as “Stay twice, earn a free night”, it is sort of false advertising as the free night is at their lowest end hotel category. This bonus plus the regular points you earn from your two stays will earn you a minimum of 8,000 points in total – it depends on the room rate. A free night at a Choice property runs anywhere between 6,000 and 35,000 points a night. This promotion runs February 27 through May 14, 2014. You must register for this promotion PRIOR to checking in to the hotel.
Choice hotels include:
- Comfort Inn
- Comfort Suites
- Sleep Inn
- Cambria Suites
- Ascend Hotel Collection
- Econo Lodge (minimum two night stay required)
- Rodeway Inn (minimum two night stay required)
- Suburban Extended Stay Hotel (minimum two night stay required)
- MainStay Suites (minimum two night stay required)
With Choice hotels, you also can only redeem your points only 30 days in advance for hotels in the US or Canada and 60 days in advance for hotels outside of the US and Canada. For Gold Elite members you can book 50 days out (60 days for hotels outside of the US and Canada), Platinum Elite members can book 75 days out, and Diamond Elite members 100 days out. This time restriction is a big disadvantage to their program.
