Choice Hotels are offering members the chance to get a free night after just two stays. The promotion runs from 1 September through to 13 November 2020.
While it sounds fairly simple, as always the devil is in the detail. In fact, under the offer you don’t get a free night – you get enough points to be able to redeem an award night.
- Promotion: Stay 2 nights and earn points for a free night
- Stay Dates: 1 September – 13 November 2020
- Registration: Required at this link
As mentioned, this may or may not be as generous as it first looks.
Firstly, the number of bonus points you are awarded varies depending on the number of points you earn on your two stays. Choice Hotels say that between the points you earn for the stay, and the bonus points you will gain at least 8,000 points in total. So, think of the bonus as a top-up to 8,000 points.
Having said that, Choice has said the minimum bonus will be 5,000 points. As such, between the two stays and the bonus, you could end up with more than 8,000 points.
Secondly, there is the issue of just what you can get for 8,000 points. Choice rightly points out that you can get an award night at over 1,000 hotels worldwide for 8,000 points. However, at most Choice properties you would need more than 8,000 points. In fact, in Asia Pacific, you could need a whopping 75,000 points.
An interesting promotion, and one that might be a benefit to those that stay at Choice Hotels. Just be aware that it may not get you a free night anywhere in the network.
