Choice Privileges has quietly launched an offer for a maximum of 8,000 or a minimum of 5,000 bonus points for two stays through May 2, 2021.
The number of bonus points depends on the base points you earn (you get a minimum of 8,000 points total after two stays).
You can access this offer on Choice Privileges website here.
Note that this offer was sent to members in Canada, and it is unclear if it is valid for members worldwide.
There is also a separate offer with a longer duration and higher bonus opportunity around:
Interestingly, Choice Privileges has two overlapping bonus offers simultaneously (you are unlikely able to register for both). This is the traditional one, while the other one is something that Choice hasn’t previously offered.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Registration required at www.choicehotels.com/free-night before the first qualifying check-out. The promotion is only available to members of the Choice Privileges® Rewards Program who register for this promotion, and then make two separate qualifying stays at participating hotels (WoodSpring Suites® hotels, Ascend Hotel Collection® all-inclusive resorts, Ascend Hotel Collection® casino hotel and resort destinations , among others, are not participating) with arrival between April 6, 2021 and May 2, 2021. 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. You must maintain an address in Canada to be eligible.
Registered members will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 to a maximum of 8,000 bonus points after the second qualifying stay. The number of bonus points awarded depends on the number of base points earned from the two separate qualifying stays, with points varying by hotel. The total of base points plus bonus points awarded, however, will be at least 8,000 points, which is the number of points required for a future free night at over 1,000 Choice® hotels worldwide (see Free Nights, below).
Some provinces 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 on any hotel guest restrictions.
Qualifying Channel: Members must book stays via ChoiceHotels.com, the Choice Hotels mobile app, or 800.4CHOICE. Stays directly booked through Book by Google are also eligible, if the member adds his/her Choice Privileges number to the reservation prior to check-in. Corporate travelers may book through their online booking tool, GDS, or with a travel agent; however, reservations booked through Egencia’s Preferred Rate Program do not qualify for promotional bonus points. Choice Privileges member number must be provided upon check-in. To be eligible to earn bonus points, 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, unless the member changes it. Allow 72 hours from check-out for points to post. Request for bonus points made by members who did not register for the promotion will only be considered up to 60 days after the promotion ends; request thereafter will be automatically denied.
Free Nights: There are no blackout dates, but rooms are subject to availability. Restrictions, taxes, and fees apply. There are over 1,000 Choice hotels with reward nights available at 8,000 points or less. A free night at most Choice locations requires more than 8,000 points; reward nights at locations worldwide are available from 6,000 to 30,000 points (excluding Asia-Pac, where reward nights require up to 75,000 points). Point requirements may vary based on time of year.
