How To Book
You can book Choice Privileges Experiences by redeeming Choice Privileges points through this dedicated website.
You’ll need a Choice Privileges account (it’s free to sign up) with enough points to redeem for an experience. If you’re in need of more points, you can purchase points through points.com. Or, you could transfer points from the Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One Miles, or Citi ThankYou Rewards programs.Hot Tip:
Redeeming Choice Privileges points just got more interesting with the ability to redeem points for college sporting events. This is a great way to redeem loyalty points for experiences you may not otherwise have or that may otherwise be out of reach financially.
