    Hi Ric, is there any update on the points + cash for Choice hotels?
    It looks like there was a technical issue for these type of bookings back in June but it is now August and still not fixed?

  • Ric Garrido August 15, 2017

    I know nothing more about Points Plus Cash rewards missing since May. Choice Hotels representative told me in May it was a temporary glitch, but Points Plus Cash booking option still not been seen for three months.

  • Ron August 15, 2017

    Ric: Hi. Have you ever visited Geneva and stayed at any of these properties?

    Also, curious as to why you did not note the points/night redemption at the Comfort Hotel in France.

  • Boris Minevich August 15, 2017

    Rick, there is separate Wyndham promotion for 10,000 points for 1 paid night, you got to check under ” My promotions” in your Wyndham online account and you got to activate it. I am not sure if you knew about that targeted promo.

  • Ric Garrido August 15, 2017

    @Ron – I could not find a date with reward night availability at Comfort Hotel Annemasse-Geneve.

    Here are reward rates as posted on Choice Hotels Canada website:

    Points required for Choice Privileges reward night redemption:
    August 13, 2017 – September 15, 2017:
    Sun – Thu 8,000/room
    Fri – Sat 6,000/room

    September 16, 2017 – November 30, 2017:
    Sun – Thu 8,000/room
    Fri – Sat 8,000/room

    @Boris – As someone who has had paid stays at Wyndham hotels this year, my offer was only double points and not a “come back, we miss you” 10,000 points offer.
