This offer is valid for Choice Privileges members that have their account address in the United States including territories and Canada, but the stays can be at Choice hotels worldwide.
Note that you can get triple points for Friday and Saturday nights IF your stay includes any of the weeknights.
Here’s how to calculate the number of points that you earn:
This promotion rewards those members that use Choice hotels for their business stays midweek. Here is likely another offer for Choice members who have their account address set elsewhere.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Corporate travelers may book through a travel agent or corporate online booking system. Choice Privileges member number must be provided upon check-in. Between 12/29/14 and 2/18/15, members will be awarded triple bonus points for every qualifying stay that includes a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night, up to 30,000 bonus points. A stay includes all consecutive nights at the same hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. Trips at vacation rental property locations do not qualify for promotional bonus points.

Here are the frequently asked questions by Choice:
1. How does the promotion work? What if I’m staying on a Friday or Saturday night?
If your stay includes a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night, you will receive triple points for your stay, with a maximum of 30,000 points. This means, if your stay includes one of the earning nights in addition to a Friday or Saturday night, you will receive triple points for your entire stay.
Friday night + Saturday night + Sunday night = Triple points for the entire stay
