Choice Privileges just expanded its latest round of Choice Sweet Spot Rewards. This relatively new promotion offers heavily discounted award night stays with up to 40% off at select locations. During this promotion, reward nights will set you back 8,000–25,000 points per night at participating properties. The offer is valid for stays through November 30, 2023. Here's how you can nab these deals for half the number of points.
Choice Sweet Spot Rewards Promotion Key Terms
- The promotion offers discounted awards at 34 Choice Hotel properties in the U.S. (30 properties), Canada (2), and Europe (2 — France & Czechia).
- The promotion is valid for stays through November 30, 2023.
- Award prices vary between 8,000 and 25,000 points per night.
- The discount on offer ranges from 17% to 40%.
- Rooms available at the promotion point levels are limited.
Sweet Spot Rewards Participating Hotels
Similar to previous versions of this promotion, only a limited number of Choice properties are taking part — 34 to be precise. This time around, a couple of European properties are available, in addition to the ones in North America. Participating properties span seven different Choice Hotel brands, ranging from high-end properties to midscale and economy properties.
Choice Privileges acquired Radisson Americas on July 18, 2023. Since then, it updated its sweet spot awards list to add five Radisson properties.

Boosting Your Choice Privileges Points Balance
If you are a few points short of a redemption, you can boost your Choice Privileges points balance by transferring points from three flexible credit card point currencies to Choice Privileges. You can transfer all of the following points to Choice Privileges:
While it is good you can transfer Amex Membership Rewards and Capital One miles, they are not your best option. Without a doubt, the standout transfer is from Citi ThankYou Points. The ratio of 1:2 is outstanding and can lead to some substantial savings and value.
- 60,000 point signup bonus worth $800 towards airfare through the ThankYou Travel Center, or potentially much more when transferred to airline partners
- 3X points per $1 on airfare and hotels and at gas stations, restaurants, and supermarkets
- Annual Hotel Benefit: Save $100 off a single hotel stay of $500 or more (excluding taxes and fees) when you book through ThankYou.com
- No foreign transaction fees
- $95 annual fee
- 3X points per $1 spent on airfare, hotels, and at gas stations
- 3X points per $1 spent on dining at restaurants, including cafes, bars and lounges
- 3X points per $1 spent at supermarkets
- 1X points per $1 spent on all other purchases
You also can boost your balance with welcome offers and everyday spending on two Choice Privileges credit cards, issued by Wells Fargo in the U.S.
Maximizing the Promotion
If you are strategic with your planning, there is some awesome value to be had with this promotion. Take, for instance, the Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago. A two-night weekend stay in August will set you back 24,000 Choice Privileges points or 12,000 Citi ThankYou Points. That's just 6k points per night.
The same booking would cost you a whopping $519.98 or $259.99 per night.
If you have a healthy balance of Choice Privileges points, redeeming 24,000 points for a $519.98 stay provides outstanding value and works out to 2.17 per point. That is more than three and a half times the 0.6¢ value that AwardWallet members typically get from their Choice Privileges points.
The latest Choice Privileges Sweet Spot Rewards release is as good — if not better — as the previous one! Not only are there some international destinations included, but the discounts are substantial across the board. Of the 34 properties on the list, 27 are discounted by over 30%, with many discounted by 40%. Maximizing the promotion, you can save a bundle this fall, especially on properties featuring heavier discounts!
