Choice Privileges promo: Double points on stays


Choice Privileges has just unveiled the details of its next big promotion, which will launch in the coming days. While this is probably not a reason to spend stays at Choice, it is worth taking advantage of if you are already planning such a stay.

Until the end of the year, Choice Privileges is offering double points on stays at most brands.

Here are the basic terms to know:

  • This promotion is valid for stays between November 29 and December 31, 2021
  • Registration is required before the departure of your first stay
  • Only bookings made directly with Choice (through the app, website or phone) are eligible
  • An eligible stay is a stay eligible to earn Choice Privileges points, with the exception of stays booked at rates below $ 40 per night, reward nights, stays with employee rates, etc.
  • Stays at WoodSpring Suites and Ascend Hotel Collection all-inclusive resorts are not eligible
  • You must set your Choice Privileges points earning preference in order to qualify
  • Points must be posted within 72 hours of an eligible departure
  • Premium properties in the following countries are excluded from this promotion: Japan, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia
  • To be eligible, you must have a Choice Privileges account registered in one of the following regions: United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, participating countries in Central America and the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand or Singapore
  • You can earn an unlimited number of bonus points with this promotion, there is no minimum stay requirement and the bonus starts on your first stay

For context, Choice Privileges members typically earn 10 times more points per dollar spent, regardless of elite bonuses (10-50%) or credit card rewards. This means that with this promotion, you will earn an additional 10 points for every eligible dollar spent at a hotel.

How much are Choice Points worth?

Everyone will rate points differently, although I personally cautiously rate Choice Privileges points at around 0.6 cents each. This means that this promotion offers a gradual return of approximately 6% on stays at Choice hotels. That’s a nice added reward, but not necessarily a reason to move all that number of stays to Choice.

Choice Privileges does not have an official rewards table, but in general rewards prices range from 6,000 to 35,000 points per night. In Asia-Pacific, some properties cost up to 75,000 points per night. In addition to this, Choice Privileges has a partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, which is a group of more than 500 independent luxury properties around the world.

You can redeem Choice Privileges points for stays here, and hotels cost between 25,000 and 55,000 points per night. You can find participating hotels and award prices here, but note that you must call Choice Privileges to redeem points this way. There are some participating hotels where you can get significant value by redeeming this way.

At the end of the line

Choice Privileges has revealed details of its latest major promotion of 2021, offering double points on stays at most brands. This gives Choice Privileges members 10 times more points per dollar spent, which I personally rate at an incremental return of 6%.

It’s a solid promotion, but at the same time I’m not sure that’s a reason to stay at Choice.
