Choice Privileges 8,000 points after 2 stays Sep 4-Nov 8

Choice Privileges today once again launches their standard promotion for 8,000 points after 2 stays from Sep 4 to Nov 8, 2019.

Basic idea is stay two times and the difference between what your base points earned for spend at 10 points per $1 and 8,000 points are added to your account as a bonus. Choice Hotels earn 10 points per $1, so if you have $100 in eligible spend on a stay (tax does not count), then you earn 1,000 points. Spend $100 on second stay and you earn another 1,000 points. This promotion will add 6,000 bonus points to your 2,000 base points for a total 8,000 points after two stays.

There is a minimum earning of 5,000 bonus points in case you spend more than $300 on your two stays. For example, spend $400 and you earn 4,000 base points + earn 5,000 bonus points for a total 9,000 points after two stays.

You can earn this bonus multiple times during the promotion.

One thing to watch out for is a room rate under $40 does not qualify. I have earned this promotion bonus in years past using under $40 per night rates. I actually came across a $38 rate at a Choice Hotel in New York or Pennsylvania in a search last week when I was planning a potential fall road trip.

One difference I see in the wording of this promotion is “you can earn enough points to redeem for a future free night at more than 1,000 hotels worldwide.” This used to read 1,500 hotels worldwide, which was about 20 to 25% of hotels. Looks like reward rate creep has hit Choice Privileges too.

Still, there are some good Choice Privileges hotel reward deals at 8,000 points. I stayed 8 nights at Clarion Prague Old Town this year for 8,000 points per night.
