Choice Hotels is back again with another generous ‘stay twice, get a free night’ promotion.
Note that registration is required here, and that you must stay between 12th September 2018 and 9th November 2018.
The way the promotion works is that after every second qualifying stay (one night stays are fine, so long as the nightly rate is more than $40.00) your account will be topped up with a minimum of 5,000 and a maximum of 8,000 bonus points (depending on how many base points were earned from your stays) to ensure that you always earn at least 8,000 points in total from every 2 stays.
8,000 points is enough for a free night at over 1,000 Choice hotels, and some of the 8,000 points ones are actually pretty good!
There is no limit to the number of times you can earn the bonus points.
In case you’re not familiar with Choice Hotels, it is actually one of the largest hotel groups in the world with 6,400+ hotels (mostly in North America) divided into the following brands: Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria hotels & suites, MainStay Suites, Suburban, Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Ascend Hotel Collection.
Choice Hotels doesn’t often get a lot of attention in the points/miles world, but these promotions are quite ‘travel hackable’ – pay cash at cheap hotels (Choice has lots of those) and redeem points at expensive hotels (particularly in Scandinavia, where Choice has a strong presence).
Registration required at ChoiceHotels.com/freenight before check-out. Promotion is only available to members of the Choice Privileges® Rewards Program who make two separate qualifying stays with arrival between 09/12/2018 and 11/09/2018. Only bookings made at qualifying rates and at participating hotels are eligible. For details on what constitutes a qualifying stay, visit https://www.choicehotels.com/choice-privileges/rules-regulations. After the second qualifying stay, registered members will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 and maximum of 8,000 bonus points. The number of bonus points awarded will depend on the number of base points earned from the two (2) separate qualifying stays, which vary by hotel. The total base points plus bonus points awarded will be at least 8,000 points. You can redeem for a future free night with 8,000 points at over 1,000 hotels worldwide; see “Free Nights” below for details. A stay is defined as any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check- ins or check-outs. Members must book stays via ChoiceHotels.com, the Choice Hotels mobile app, or 800.4CHOICE at qualifying rates. Corporate travelers may book through their online booking tool, GDS, or with a travel agent. Choice Privileges member number must be provided upon check-in at both qualifying stays. Stays at vacation rental property locations do not qualify for this promotion. 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 in members’ online accounts will remain in effect after the promotion has ended. Allow 72 hours from check-out for points to post. Requests 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; requests thereafter will be denied. You must maintain an address in the U.S. (including U.S. territories) or Canada to be eligible for this promotion. Choice Hotels reserves the right to amend these terms or terminate this promotion at any time.
