Thank you Choice Hotels for sponsoring this conversation. All thoughts are my own.
I love to get away. We travel a lot. But my wallet sometimes puts the brakes on my getaway plan. That is why I look for ways to get away more often that doesn’t break my budget. What is my secret? The Choice Hotels rewards program called Choice Privileges.
Over 25 million people have joined the Choice Privileges program and are taking advantage of the new rewards and faster way to earn free nights. There are many ways that the Choice Privileges program helps you be able to get more from your traveling budget:
There are to 2,000 hotels that offer free nights at a discounted points value for week days and weekends. When travelers check in during a weekday, they can earn special rewards. Just a little extra to say thank you. These are things that you get right when you check in. US members have 5 options from Fuel Rewards® savings at participating Shell locations to Amazon.com credit. International members have 2 options: 500 bonus points or 100 airline miles from participating airline carriers.
Using the Choice Privileges app, Choice Privileges members can get new digital gift cards immediately. And points add up quickly. All 5,500 Choice Hotels now earn 10 points per dollar spent, including economy and extended stay hotels, such as MainStay Suites, Suburban, EconoLodge and Rodeway Inn. Members no longer need to stay two consecutive nights at economy brands in order to earn points.
Unlike some other rewards programs, you do not have to worry about losing your points. Members stay active as long as there is one qualifying activity once every 18 months, which means they keep the points.
With so many ways to get free nights quicker, that means I can get out more often. I can stay a little longer on my vacation or just do an overnight getaway when I am feeling a little stressed.
