Looking to stay at a Choice hotel soon? Check your account to see if you are targeted for a 30% bonus when you purchase points!

Here’s a look at everything you should know.

Buy Choice Points Details

Choice Privileges frequently offers a discount or bonus on purchased points, though the amount often varies.

This time, we are seeing a bonus of 30% on purchased points. If maximized, this promotion will drop the cost of buying points to 0.72 cents each.

  • Buy 1,000 to 5,000 points and get no bonus (1.28 cents each)
  • Buy 6,000 to 11,000 points and get a 20% bonus (0.95 cents each)
  • Buy 12,000 to 17,000 points and get a 25% bonus (0.82 cents each)
  • Buy 18,000+ points and get a 30% bonus (0.79 cents each)

Your specific offer may vary as this is technically a targeted offer. This promotion is valid through June 21, 2024, and you can buy up to 180,000 points.

Hot Tip:

Choice Privileges points are sold through Points.com, so they won’t code as a travel or hotel purchase. To get the best return when purchasing Choice Privileges points, use an everyday card like the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card or the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card to earn 2x miles or the Chase Freedom Unlimited® to earn 1.5% cash-back

Is It Worth It?

Though there isn’t a ton of buzz around Choice Privileges points, there are absolutely some cases in which buying these can make sense. Choice Hotels has thousands of properties across the world. While many of these aren’t ultra-high-end, you can score some good value.

There are a few things to know about Choice points in general:

  • You can only book reward rooms within 100 days of travel
  • Choice doesn’t charge more for additional guests (up to the capacity limit)
  • Suites cost the same as standard rooms in points

At Upgraded Points, we value Choice Privileges points at 0.6 cents per point, so this 30% bonus promotion allows you to purchase points close to that value. That said, it’s certainly possible to get more than 0.6 cents per point in value depending on how you redeem Choice Privileges points.

Other Ways To Earn Choice Privileges Points

Besides purchasing points, there are a few other ways to earn Choice Privileges points.

Citi ThankYou Rewards Points and Wells Fargo Rewards points transfer to Choice Privileges at a 1:2 ratio. You can also transfer your Amex Membership Rewards points and Capital One miles at a 1:1 ratio, though this is arguably an inferior use of points compared to Citi and Wells Fargo.

Final Thoughts

Choice Privileges has launched another targeted points sale offering an impressive 30% bonus on purchased points.

If you’d like to take advantage of the latest sale, do so sooner rather than later — it ends on June 21.
