Choice Privileges Fall 2013 Promotion: Earn 8,000 Points For Every Two Stays

7 Comments

Choice Privileges fall 2013 promotion is 8,000 points for every two stays between September 5 and November 13, 2013. You will be awarded at minimum 5,000 bonus points depending on the number of base points that you have earned from your qualifying stay.

So, if you have earned less than 3,000 base points from your two stays, Choice Privileges will give you total of 8,000 points for those two stays. If you have earned more than 3,000 base points from your two stays, Choice Privileges will give you 5,000 bonus points instead. Bit confusing, isn’t it?

Note that a stay means two or more nights at the Choice’s most budget brands; Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay or MainStay Suites Hotels. In all other Choice brands the stay can be one night.

You can earn this bonus unlimited number of times during the promotional period but you need to register for it before your stay. You can access Choice’s website and register for this promotion here. This offer is only valid for Choice Privileges members whose account address is in the United States (including territories) or Canada.

    Thanks John for catching the CONFUSING fine print on this promotion. I had thought too it was simply 8,000 points for two stays at qualifying brands. But what’s this minimum 5,000 points, “depending on how many base points were earned from your two (2)
    separate qualified stays.”

    How does one know how many base points you’ll earn from each stay? Where is THAT devil specified?

    • You do earn total minimum of 8,000 points for two stays. If your stays are longer and expensive, they give you 5,000 bonus instead (your total then is more than 8,000 for two stays). Yes. Very confusing.

  • vv

    shall I choose choicePoints as my earning preference? or I can choose airline earning? For Aug month promotion, I didn’t get the bonus points when I pick airline-miles.

    • You need to choose points to earn these bonuses

  • Did you click the link on the text above that takes you directly to the Choice’s web page for this promotion?

      I did that on the 3rd and couldn’t find it anywhere. When I went to look last night, it was there and I got registered. However, if it was available, while wouldn’t customer service give me dates of an ACTIVE PROMOTION! Kind of strange!

      • Sometimes these chains wants to be “secretive”. Doesn’t make too much sense.
