Daily Getaways Offer #1 Thursday May 3

32,000 Choice Privileges points – Comfort Suites Stay 2 Nights for $134.

  • 465 sets available
  • 50 sets available in pre-sale 12 noon Eastern Thursday May 3
  • $134 without American Express credit card
  • $120.60 with American Express credit card

The item is 32,000 points and the Comfort Suites is just brand advertising. There are 11 brands shown in the Choice Hotels chain and the points you buy can be used for any standard Choice Privileges redemption at any of the Choice Hotels brands or partner hotels like Barcelo Resorts and Preferred Hotels Group or exchanged into airline miles. Choice Privileges has a better hotel-points-to-airline-miles exchange rate with Southwest Airlines than most hotel loyalty programs.

Here is a link to Loyalty Traveler articles discussing Choice Privileges. In March 2012 I wrote an article showing the high value of 8,000 Choice Privileges points at Choice hotels in Europe where a city center Paris Choice Hotel for 8,000 points can save over $250 per night.

These are all good Daily Getaways deals for Choice Privileges points in my opinion. With over 6,000 hotels you will always find a Choice Hotel around the USA and many other places too.

Mommy Points and Million Mile Secrets both have good analysis on the value of this Choice Privileges points deal. Travel by Points has a table showing the cost of each Choice Hotel reward night category using points with this deal.
