Choice Hotels sent me an email today for 15% off the flexible rate for a hotel booking made by December 21 for a stay completed by January 31, 2019. The offer is good at Choice Hotels worldwide and offers flexible cancellation terms.
This is a targeted promotion applicable only for one booking by the email recipient.
The email subject line reads: Flash Sale: 15% off Hotels!
I received my email at 7:36am Pacific time Monday Dec 17.
Terms state this is limited to USA residents. I don’t know if this offer went to all Choice Privileges members or only elites or even a more select subset of members.
Hotels in London I checked offered the lowest rates I have seen for several hotels at places I have been tracking for the past two months. The promotional flexible cancellation rate with this offer was even lower than advance purchase rates for most of the hotels.
A second location I checked offered slightly lower advance purchase rates than this promotional rate.
If you need a hotel stay by January 31, 2019, this is a promotion to consider for booking by December 21 with the option to cancel later if you want.
Terms and conditions with key points I placed in bold print.
