Limited Time: Stay Twice at Choice Hotels, Earn Free Future Night
At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

If you’re looking for a remedy to that travel bug, there’s a limited-time promotion from Choice Hotels that you may be interested in. The Choice Privileges loyalty program is offering a promotion — Book. Stay. Repeat. — that can get you traveling now and earning stays toward your next vacation.

Through May 25, 2018, two separate stays at a Choice Hotels property could earn you bonus points that could get you a free future night at one of more than 1,000 Choice Hotels properties. Choice Hotels operates brands like Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Mainstay Suites, EconoLodge and others.

Here’s how you can qualify for a free future night:

  • Join the Choice Privileges loyalty program for free
  • Register for the promotion online
  • Book travel through, the mobile app or by phone at 800.4.Choice
  • Complete two separate stays at qualifying Choice Hotels properties (Choice Hotels defines a “stay” as any number of consecutive nights spent at one hotel.)

Members of the Choice Privileges loyalty program already earn base points for their stays (10 points for every $1 spent on stays at Choice Hotels). Under the promotion, after two qualifying separate stays, members can also earn 5,000 to 8,000 additional bonus points; the amount will depend on the number of base points earned from the two qualifying stays.

The 8,000-point threshold is the amount at which members qualify for a free future night from among 1,000 Choice Hotels — most of which are in the United States, according to Jamie Russo, vice president of customer and loyalty engagement at Choice Hotels International.

As an example: If you were to earn 2,000 base points for the first stay and 1,500 base points for the second stay, you would also earn a minimum of 5,000 bonus points. That would bump you to a total of 8,500 points, making you eligible to redeem points for a free future night. 

Points also can be redeemed for stays at higher-tier properties, gift cards and other options in the Choice Hotels redemption catalog.

There is no limit to how many free future nights you can earn during this promotion.
