My husband used to travel for weeks at a time to different states to set up computer networking systems. Thankfully he rarely does this now. But at the time I had signed him up for several hotel rewards programs. But NONE of them can remotely compair themselves to Choice Privileges!
My co-worker is currently attending college about 5 hours from our home. Every Thursday she drives up to Winston Salem and stays in the same Comfort Inn (classes start early Friday morning and go until 4 p.m.). I'm not sure how she first heard of this program, but like I said it is fabulous!
For every dollar spent at Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality Hotel, Sleep Inn, or Clarion you earn 10 points! For every dollar spent on stays at MainStay Suites, EconoLodge, Rodeway Inn, or Suburban you earn 5 points.
Now for the GREAT part, the more you stay there, the higher your Choice Privilege standing...you become an elite member. GOLD....If you stay 10 nights a year you get 10% more points. PLATINUM....If you stay 25 nights a year you get 25% more points. DIAMOND....If you stay 40 nights per year, you earn 40% more points!
You can trade your points in for a FREE night at just about any Choice hotel for as little as 5000 points and up to 35000 points. My co-worker earns a FREE night once a month! Not bad huh?
