Seems that every hotel chain seem to love their own version of promo (that they have run for years). This Choice Privileges one is good but they should up the number of points awarded because the “free night” is only good with fewer and fewer properties each year.
Here are the frequently asked questions questions by Choice:
1. How do I get my “free night”? I’ve made my two separate qualifying stays.
Redeem your bonus points for your future free night through your online profile or by calling the Choice Privileges Service Center.
Check in between August 31, 2017 and November 11, 2017 to earn.
Current Choice Privileges members can register here before their first stay.

- Referring a Friend*
*The Refer-a-Friend option awards points to your account when a friend enrolls in the Choice Privileges Rewards Program and completes a point-eligible stay. The point forfeiture date will be based on the date the points post to your account, not on the date of the referral.
Advance Purchase Rate (“Pay Now and Save”) means that the reservation must be made on ChoiceHotels.com using your Choice Privileges number and must be made at least 7, 14, 21 or 30 days in advance, which will vary based on the hotel for which a reservation is being made.
