Choice Privileges Armed Services Offer – Complimentary Gold Elite Status

Choice Privileges Armed Services Offer – Complimentary Gold Elite Status

You deserve a break today.  And if you are active military, retired military, U.S. Coast Guard, National Guard, or a spouse or dependent with a military ID card, then Choice Privileges is giving away Gold.

Gold Elite status normally requires 10 hotel nights within the Choice Hotels brands, which include 10 hotel brands:

·         Comfort Inn

·         Comfort Suites

·         Quality Inn

·         Sleep Inn

·         Clarion

·         Cambria Suites

·         MainStay Suites

·         Suburban

·         EconoLodge

·         Rodeway Inn 

Choice Privileges is the hotel loyalty program for these ten hotel brands.  While being oriented primarily to the budget traveler market segment with EconoLodge, Rodeway Inn, and Suburban motels, there are also many fine properties in the Comfort Inn, Quality, and Clarion hotel brands.  Cambria Suites is the newest brand and is Choice Privileges entry into an upper midscale market.

Gold elite membership rewards the frequent guest with an additional 10% bonus on points earned for hotel stays, dedicated reservations line, and special offers.  Choice Privileges has over 5,000 hotel members and makes this hotel loyalty program an ideal choice for military families repositioning around the USA.

My father, a retired Army enlisted man, had to move our family, on average, every 13 months for the first 15 years of my life as we moved from Army base to Army base around the USA and Germany.  Actually, I think my mother probably did most of the family moving which is why military spouses deserve this Armed Services opportunity too.

  1. Just made a reservation in Corpus Christi and tried to join the Choice Privileges Armed Services program from the reserevation comfirmation page and link seems to be broken. Also tried from “Loyality Traveler” page with same result. Any suggestions?
    Thank You,
    DA DAvolt

  2. Hi David – I found the same issue with the Choice Privileges Armed Services link not loading any page on their website today.

    This is probably a temporary broken link.

    Try the Choice Privileges customer service line at 888-770-6800 to enroll by phone.

  3. Choice Privileges Armes Services Program is NOT A PROGRAM AT ALL. IT IS FAKE. IT DOES NOT EXIST. I’ve been a member since 2006. I got one edition of the newsletter ‘Top Brass.’ I’ve called several times to the Choice Privileges service center. They usually don’t know what it is, they transfer me to someone else who says he knows what it is, but cannot enroll me, and cannot tell me anything about the program or the program’s newsletter called ‘Top Brass.’ It’s a program in name only. SHAME ON CHOICE HOTELS FOR FALSE ADVERTISEMENTS TO MILITARY PEOPLE.

  4. I’ve never gotten ‘gold’ status for being an ‘armed services program member.’ Choice Privilege’s rules say “10% bonus on stays”. And you can’t get that. Choice privileges will not honor it’s own rules.
