Gift Vouchers

In the US you can exchange your points for a $50 Gift Card from the following stores:

  • iTunes
  • Appleby’s
  • com
  • Lowe’s
  • Chilli’s
  • Best Buy
  • BP

In Canada you can exchange your points for gift cards from the following stores:

  • Hudson’s Bay

Our Take

Exchanging your points for a $50 voucher represents a return of 0.625 cents per point, which could be a good redemption if you don't have another use. It is not clear whether if you register for the promotion and have a stock of Choice Hotel points you can exchange them for the Gift Cards. With Choice hotels redemptions starting at 8,000 points to 35,000 points, taking advantage of this promotion may be a good way to extract some more value from your points.

  • It’s not our top-tier brand so the deal doesn’t appeal

  • Sebastian says:

    Thats not a bad Promo – i might take advantage of it, if there’s a Choice Hotel nearby next time!

  • Not going out of my way, but if I was traveling on the interstate, I would consider it.

  • At least something new from Choice Hotels! Usually their promos are confined to up to 8 000 points for two stays or something and zero imagination whatsoever.

  • Not a bad promo 50 bucks is 50 bucks and that type of perk makes your stay just that much better

  • If one already has 8000 points from prior stays, can you still redeem for a $50 gift card even if no points earned from this new promotion? Thanks.

    • It looks like you can. However, I cannot verify this as I don’t have any Choice points.

    • No, you cannot, the system keeps track of the earning of two stays during the promotion. You will only see the cost for a $50 card as 8000 points if you registered, and had stays during the promotion. after that, they will show as 16,000 point cost.

  • The_Bouncer says:

    Choice looks like an interesting program. I’m looking for a new home at the moment, due to IHG’s incessant devaluations. With the number of one and two night stays I do on road trips, I reckon I could pick up some nice bonuses.

  • I’m curious too. Try it and let us know!!!

  • Registered! Thanks for the heads up 🙂

  • If you have any chance of travelling to Scandinavia save your Choice points for there where you can get a whole lot more value than a $50 gift card.

  • It’s a good promotion. It would have been even better if the dates were more in the future so to book cheaper rooms.

  • Is it required to redeem these points for gift cards?

  • definitely will be using this, thanks for the info

  • Appears this deal is dead as their website no longer lists ANY $50 gift cards for 8,000 points. I should know as Ive already redeemed enough for X4 $50 cards previously the past 2 weeks.

    this was a bad idea ->**You may receive 5 bonus AAdvantage miles for leaving a comment

  • Be careful! Choice hotels didn’t honor the promotion. They didn’t send out the gift card. After many phone calls and emails for several months, they just give some points which worthless.

  • Jim Billingsley says:

    Choice Hotel gift cards are worthless, and are not accepted at Choice Hotels. I purchased some $50 Choice Hotel gift cards issued by SVM and have yet to find any Choice Hotel that accepts them, despite having tried a dozen times over the last year in several different states. I am a Choice Privileges member and have been extremely disappointed that these gift cards cannot be used to book a reservation online at the Choice Hotel website, and they also cannot be used to book a room directly at any Choice Hotel front desk. I believe they are purposefully operating a scam – to collect money upfront for the gift cards, and then refusing to honor the cards so the individual card holders are screwed out of hundreds of dollars. I highly advise anyone considering obtaining Choice Hotel gift cards to NOT do it.
