Skye Class

Staff Writer

Skye joined the AwardWallet team in 2019. After leaving his full-time job in 2014 to travel the world, he’s created his own website SkyeTravels.com to make traveling a reality for everyone, no matter their financial means. He’s a big fan of reward program for anyone with a credit card, and has used several of the programs himself.
 
Skye can most often be found working diligently in a cafe somewhere in the world. So far he’s been to 50 countries and counting. He travels the world with his partner and puppy in a van, never content to stay in the same place for long (unless it’s at the top of a mountain overlooking a beautiful sea).

Buy Choice Privileges Points for 0.71 Cents Each

Choice Privileges is offering a 40% bonus when purchasing points, allowing you to buy them at 0.71 cents each.

Earn a Free Night After 2 Stays with the Choice Q4 2019 Promo

Choice Hotels is out with its fourth-quarter promotion, and it’s very similar to what we’ve seen in the past. Once again, earn up to 8,000 points from two stays, enough for a free stay at more than 1,000 of their properties. This deal is interesting because the total points you earn with two stays are the same whether you pay $40 per night or $280 per night. Let the search for cheap Choice Hotel rates begin!
