Choice Privileges has had similar flash sales. Although I wouldn’t use this sale to buy points unless I was close to redeeming and needed a few more, it offers good value if you have some stays in mind and the cost of the hotel is more than the redemption amount.

Terms & Conditions:

Choice Privileges points purchased on October 28, 2014, during the 8 hour promotional period between 9:00 a.m. EST and 5:00 p.m. EST on will earn bonus points equal to 50% of the points purchased (i.e., 500 points for each 1,000 points purchased). Price includes all applicable fees. Purchased points are not refundable and are applicable to all Choice Privileges rewards. Points purchased using this option will post within 24 hours. Purchased points do not count towards status upgrades. All standard Choice Privileges program rules and conditions apply.
