Choice Privileges is running a promotion offering up to 8,000 bonus points for completing two stays. The promotion is valid for stays where the room rate is at least $40 per night through April 26, 2019.

Key Terms

  • You need to register prior to your first stay
  • The promotion is valid for stays through April 26, 2019
  • Earn up to 8,000 bonus points for two separate stays
  • The promotion excludes rooms booked at a rate below $40 per night
  • Bonus points should post within 72 hours of completing your second stay

Our Take

One thing to keep in mind is that the points being advertised with this deal are the total points you'll earn for the two stays. In other words, if you earn 2,000 base points for your two stays, you'll get 6,000 extra points after your second stay. The wording is actually way more confusing than it needs to be.

As I understand it, if you start with zero points, two stays later, you'll have 8,000 points. Choice advertises that 8,000 points will get you a free night at more than 1,000 properties worldwide, so this deal is probably worth somewhere in the $60-80 range.

If you have a couple of one-night stays coming up, then this promotion could work out nicely. The major drawback is that there is limited time to complete your stays—six weeks may not be enough time to fit this into your plans. Like many hotel programs, Choice Privileges allows you to choose to earn other types of points instead of Choice Hotel points. For example, you can earn United, Alaska, or Southwest frequent flyer points. If you are planning on taking advantage of this promotion make sure to update your earning preferences to earn Choice points (you won't earn bonus airline miles with this promo) and remember to book a room costing more than $40 per night.

  • I don’t use the Choice Hotels program very often, but sometimes it can be useful when staying at small locations where there are no other chain hotel such as when I am doing military duty. Thanks for the heads up on this offer.

  • Choice will certainly never be at the top of any aspirational loyalty, but there are some decent options out there for staying the night before a flight, etc.

  • Thanks for the heads up! I was just looking into Choice Hotels promotions, as I have an upcoming stay.

  • Great offer. I may just be able to fit this in! Thank you.

    • Congrats. Always great to be introduced to an offer via AW that you can immediately take advantage of… perhaps the greatest benefit of AW!

  • Tim Cathcart says:

    Nice Deal!!! Where can anyone find one of these rooms a for $40 ish ?

    • The_Bouncer says:

      Pretty much anywhere out of the way in the USA. Promos like this are perfect for one night stays at highway-side motels on road trips.

  • Farid Kassam says:

    2 one night stays should be good to get 8k.

  • 8,000 Choice points is really quite valuable!

  • Obviously Choice isn’t known for its high-end properties, but it still seems rather odd that the promotion doesn’t provide any incentive for staying in a more expensive hotel. $41 or $141… still 8000 total points after two stays…

  • Thank you – interesting promo for brief cheap stays.

  • I have one Choice Hotels stay coming up.
    Should I make another booking for the bonus points? lol

  • Great deal but I just wish they would extend the offer a little longer. But in all, a great deal. Good atricle

  • Very rare imo to see a Choice Priviledge offer

  • Havent stayed in a choice hotel since college, just no point in going after those points

  • Good offer. I might use this for my upcoming trip. Thanks for sharing.

  • I have never looked into Choice Privileges due to the more high end aspect, but one day I might have this option, good to know these deals run occasionally.

  • Nice offer, with two one-night stays you can get an extra night free of charge.
    Moreover, you can add some points to upgrade in a better hotel.

  • Bill from Maine says:

    Every person that collects points and miles needs to keep a stash of these points in their portfolio. They have properties everywhere and come in handy when traveling in remote areas that aren’t served by the Hilton, Marriott’s etc. If you are going to do the stays anyway, there’s nothing wrong with getting a few more thousand points. They usually offer a 64K credit card bonus at least once a year and have offered this for the last couple of years with only a $2000.00 spending requirement.
    Choice has improved many of the hotels over the last 5 years and I prefer them to some of the big brands. Properties in Bangor ME, North Conway NH and Berlin OH come to mind as being above average, clean and super customer friiendly.

  • Not sure we’ll be able to fit in 2 stays but may consider doing so if we throw in a last minute trip. Thanks for the notice.

  • We enjoyed astay at a perfect little Choice hotel in Tromso, Norway. It was an adorable hotel with breakfast and food at night and the hotel looked like a ship inside… And it even had a polar bear!!

  • Has anyone already planned a bonus point run?

  • Julia Young says:

    I don’t normally stay with Choice Hotels but this bonus might make me reconsider for Spring Break.

  • Ill have to take a look where these hotels are… interesting promotion as I have some bookings to make soon. Thanks

  • Great offer. I’m going to fit this in. Thanks,

  • The_Bouncer says:

    This is a nice promo. One night stays at Choice are often quite lucrative.

  • Extending AAdvantage. Thanks

  • Sometimes Choice hotels work out for stays and this would be a nice bonus. Thanks!

  • I have heard that Choice I good to have when you want to have a hotel room in a smaller city. I’ve been thinking about checking them out. This would be a great to start an account.

  • brian gallagher says:

    been a long time since I was gathering Choice points… maybe worth reconsidering.

  • A reminder that because they adjust your point total to 8,000 points after two stays is to not choose the bonus points for “your extras” and go with the Amazon credits or whatnot.
