Choice Privileges has launched their Spring 2016 promotion that is a free night (5,000 to 8,000 bonus points) for two stays between March 3 – May 4, 2016.
The offer is actually for minimum of 5,000 and maximum of 8,000 bonus points for those that is then enough to redeem at more than 1,500 hotels requiring 8,000 points per night.
You can access and register for this offer here.
Note that now one night stays at even at the economy brands qualify under this offer (previously they required minimum of two nights for these free night offers).
Choice Hotels made some changes to its Choice Privileges program that I will cover more into detail tomorrow.
It is good that Choice Privileges continues with these free night offers, although they are essentially offering maximum of 8,000 points for two stays.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Free night is based on an 8,000 point Choice Privileges reward night level. Registration required at ChoiceHotels.com/earnafreenight before check-out. Members must book trips via ChoiceHotels.com, the Choice Hotels mobile app, or 800.4CHOICE at qualifying rates. Corporate travelers may book through a corporate online booking system. Choice Privileges member number must be provided upon check-in. After a second qualifying trip with arrival between 3/3/16 and 5/5/16, members will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 and maximum of 8,000 bonus points, depending on the number of base points earned from the two (2) separate qualifying trips. These bonus points will allow redemption for a free night at the 8,000 reward night level at over 1,500 hotels. A free night at most Choice Privileges locations requires more than 8,000 points. A trip is defined as a stay that is any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. Trips at vacation rental property locations and stays booked with the SEGEN rate code do not qualify for promotional bonus points. To be eligible to earn the bonus, members must set their earning preference to Choice Privileges points in their online account. Any change made to earning preference will remain in effect after the promotion has ended. Allow 72 hours from check-out for points to post. You must maintain an address in the U.S. (including U.S. territories) or Canada to be eligible for this promotion.
