Up to 8,000 Points After Every Two Stays With Choice Hotels
S tarting today, you are limited only by the duration of this promotion in terms of the number of free nights you can potentially receive with this promotion by Choice Hotels, as you can earn up to 8,000 Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points — enough to redeem for a free night at greater than 1,500 participating hotel properties; although many require more for a free night — after each second qualifying stay through Wednesday, November 12, 2014.
However, you must sign up and register for this promotion before arrival and book your stay at a qualifying rate; and registration is now open — but only to you if you maintain an address in the United States and its territories and Canada.
Realize that after a second qualifying trip, you will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 and maximum of 8,000 bonus Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points, depending on the number of base points earned from the two separate qualifying trips.
While a qualifying stay could mean a minimum of one night per stay at Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Collection hotel properties, each stay at Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties must be a minimum of two consecutive nights per stay to qualify for this promotion. Regardless of how many times you check in or check out of a hotel property, it is still considered as only one stay. You must provide your member number when you check in at the hotel property; and you must set your earning preference to Choice Privileges points in your account.
Elite Diamond and Elite Platinum members can book directly with a hotel property; but if you book through the official Internet web site of Choice Hotels or use its mobile application software, you will receive 250 additional Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points with every qualifying stay as an incentive.
If you book early, you can save up to 20 percent on room rates — with a minimum discount of at least 15 percent — but the reservation must be booked through the official Internet web site of Choice Hotels using your Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program account number and must be made at least 7, 14, 21 or 30 days in advance, which will vary based on the hotel property for which the reservation is being made. Be aware that you cannot change or cancel your reservation once it is booked, and the discounted rate is not refundable. Your credit card will be charged for the total reservation amount within 48 hours of booking your reservation. Rooms at this discount are limited; and this offer is not available to groups nor can it be combined with any other discount.
Other terms and conditions may apply.
As I advised during a similar promotion, you may want to avoid staying at Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties because they require a minimum of two consecutive nights per stay to qualify for this promotion. More often than not, staying at Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Collection hotel properties would be a better value for taking advantage of this promotion — unless the room rate at any of those hotel properties is at least double the room rate of the Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties.
In my opinion, this tepid promotion was a little sweeter when you could spend 8,000 points on gift cards worth $50.00 instead of the current redemption requirement of 16,000 points…
