Choice has launched an offer for Australia and New Zealand members by offering a bonus for points to miles conversions.
Qantas and Virgin Australia can earn a 100% bonus for points to miles conversions through March 31, 2021.
You can access this offer on the Choice’s website here.
Note that the terms state that this bonus is only available for members in Australia and New Zealand.
Here’s the conversion table:
When my Choice Privileges points were about to expire at the end of 2020 (Choice decided not to extend), I ended up converting to Alaska’s program.
Moving them to Qantas or Virgin Australia can make sense for those living in Australia.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
The Double Airline Points transfer offer is available from 1 March 2021 to 31 March 2021. During this offer, when you redeem Choice Privileges points for these Frequent Flyer programs, you will receive twice as many Frequent Flyer Points as normal; for 2,000 Choice Privilege points, for example, you’ll receive either 1,600 Qantas Points or 1,600 Velocity Frequent Flyer Points. The minimum number of Choice Privileges points that can be redeemed under this offer is 2,000, and Choice Privilege Points must be redeemed in 1,000 point increments. To take advantage of this offer, login into the Choice Privileges member portal and select rewards exchange (https://www.choicehotels.com/choice-privileges/rewards-exchange-partners), alternatively contact the Choice Privileges Customer Service number and provide your Choice Privileges and your Airline Frequent Flyer numbers.
Australia: 1800 806 644
New Zealand: 0800 443 101
This offer is only available to Choice Privileges Members in Australia and New Zealand and members must also be a member of their nominated Frequent Flyer program. Allow 2-6 weeks for points to be credited. This offer may be amended or terminated at any time.
