Choice Hotels has released their fall promotion. Stay twice between September 4 and November 12, 2014 and get one free night at any participating property. You must register before staying, and the free night will be awarded as 8,000 points which is enough for a one night redemption.
Here’s a link to register.
Here is a link to the participating properties you can redeem at.
Diamond and Platinum members will receive 250 additional Choice Privileges Bonus Points per stay when registering for the promotion and booking online.
Note that you’ll need to set your earning preference to Choice Privileges points instead of miles in order to receive the bonus miles.
I think this is a good and simple promotion. Also, since Choice Hotel’s Preferred Partner hotels start at 30,000 a night to redeem, this would be a good way to boost an account up to that level. I’ve registered even though I don’t have any stayed planned yet, because I’d rather register and not stay than forget to register before staying.
Here are the Terms & Conditions:
*Free night is based on an 8,000 point Choice Privileges reward night level. Registration required at ChoiceHotels.com before arrival. Members must book trips via ChoiceHotels.com, the Choice Hotels mobile app, or 800.4CHOICE at qualifying rates. Choice Privileges Diamond and Platinum members receive 250 Choice Privileges bonus points with every qualifying trip booked on ChoiceHotels.com and the Choice Hotels mobile app ONLY; these members may book directly with a hotel but will not receive the 250 bonus points. Corporate travelers may book through a travel agent or corporate online booking system. Choice Privileges member number must be provided upon check-in. After a second qualifying trip with arrival between 9/4/14 and 11/12/14, members will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 and maximum of 8,000 bonus points, depending on the number of base points earned from the two (2) separate qualifying trips. These bonus points will allow redemption for a free night at the 8,000 reward night level at over 1,500 hotels. A free night at most Choice Privileges locations requires more than 8,000 points. For Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Hotel Collection hotels, a trip is defined as a stay that is any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. For Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, or MainStay Suites hotels, a trip is defined as a stay that is two (2) or more consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. Trips at vacation rental property locations do not qualify for promotional bonus points. To be eligible to earn the bonus, 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. Allow 72 hours from check-out for points to post. You must maintain an address in the U.S. (including U.S. territories) or Canada to be eligible for this promotion.
