Choice Privileges is currently having their “Members Only Madness” week. A couple of days ago I wrote about how Choice is offering up to a 40% bonus on purchased points, which is potentially a great deal.

Well, today they’ve unveiled the last part of that promotion, which is quite generous. If you register and book by midnight on Friday, November 22, 2019, you can earn 10,000 bonus points. You simply have to complete your stay by December 31, 2019.

I value Choice Privileges points at ~0.75 cents each. So getting a reward of 10,000 bonus points for one stay is like a $75 bonus, which is pretty incredible.

Bonus points will be added to eligible accounts within four to eight weeks of November 22, 2019. Furthermore, eligible rates exclude Vacation Rental property locations, and rooms booked below certain rates, complimentary rooms, rooms paid for as part of a convention or meeting, rooms booked through a travel agent or third party online retailer as part of pre-paid wholesale rates, wholesale packages or senior tours.

Bottom Line

While Choice’s global fall promotion is over, this is an excellent promotion for a one night stay. Earning 10,000 bonus points for a one night stay will allow some members to earn more value in points than you’re spending.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Choice 10K points promo?

  1. Lucky, does it count if you book with points? Or does it have to be paid with cash to earn with this promotion?

  2. What is the “below certain rates” qualification? I tried to read the terms online, but haven’t found what the limitation is. If I can buy an EconoLodge stay for $50 and get the 10K points, this is really quite good.

  3. You need at least a $40 rate to earn points per the program t’s & c’s. I assume the same applies to these bonus points.

  4. @Lucky, how good does a hotel deal, outside of one of your preferred chains that you have status with, have to be in order for you to take advantage of it? I assume from this post, for example, that you are not taking this deal.

  5. @ Tahsin – Reward stays with Choice Hotels do not count as a qualifying stay.
    @ Wonderdata – Previous promotions stated minimum rates set at $40 b4 taxes etc.

    Choice Hotels group is really impressing me with their marketing lately. There is only so much you can do to convince people to stay at the Roadway Inn.

  6. So, if I search for hotels in [metro area] using the promo, there is no availability under $125 a night (at only one property). But if I search for hotels not using the promo, there is availability at numerous properties all the way down to $60. The technical word for this is “shady.”

  7. @Wanderdata

    Choice (and Wyndham) make nearly all of their money off of franchise fees. All the chains franchise out hotels, but percentage-wise, Hilton/Marriott/Hyatt/IHG have more corporately managed hotels than chains like Choice. Franchisees usually get the option to opt-out of promotions like this, and close out rate codes.

    On one side, it’s shady with the marketing. But think of it like this, the general public who pay and stay in hotels are not Choice’s customers. Hotel owners who pay franchise fees are Choice’s customers. Choice really doesn’t care much about the general public, their main goal is to keep franchisees happy.
