Conclusion

Nice bonus offer from Choice Privileges without any earning caps, although the duration is somewhat short. I have started to prefer promotions that reward longer stays.

Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:

Registration required at https://www.choicehotels.com/deals/holiday-promotion before check-out. The promotion is only available to members of the Choice PrivilegesTM Rewards Program who register for this promotion, and then make a qualifying stay at participating hotels (WoodSpring SuitesTM hotels and Ascend Hotel CollectionTM all-inclusive resorts, among others, are not participating) with arrival between November 23, 2020 and December 31, 2020. A “stay” is any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. A “qualifying stay” is a stay that is during this promotion at a participating hotel through a qualifying channel (see Qualifying Channel, below) that is eligible to earn Choice Privileges points. Most stays are eligible to earn Choice Privileges points EXCEPT: rooms booked at rates below $40 USD per night, certain hotel initiated promotions, reward night stays, complimentary rooms, rooms paid for as part of a convention or meeting, rooms booked through a travel agent or third party online retailer including online travel agencies, wholesale packages, group tours, and stays booked using the employee discount or the friends and family discount. Stays at Choice HotelsTM properties in the following countries are excluded from this promotion: Japan, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. You must maintain an address in the U.S. (includes U.S. territories), Canada, Mexico, participating countries in Central America and the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, or Singapore to be eligible.

Registered members with a qualifying stay of 2 nights will be awarded 2,000 bonus points. Registered members with a qualifying stay of a minimum of 3 nights or more will be awarded 5,000 bonus points. The maximum number of bonus points awarded per stay will not exceed 5,000 points. There is no limit on the number of qualifying stays in which members are eligible to earn bonus points during the promotion period. Bonus points require a minimum stay of consecutive nights at one hotel. Bonus points will not apply if guests check out early, which then results in a stay of less than the required nights. Offer is not applicable to groups and cannot be combined with any other discounts, special offers or promotions.

Some states and local jurisdictions are imposing restrictions on hotels accepting guests due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which are subject to change at the discretion of state and local authorities. Please check with your destination hotel prior to departing for the hotel to confirm the status of any hotel guest restrictions.
