The latest Choice Privileges promotion will leave you with enough points to earn a $50 gift card after completing 2 stays.
Here’s a look at the details of the promotion.
Stay Twice and Earn a $50 Choice Privileges Gift Card
After registering for the promotion, you must complete 2 separate qualifying stays between now and August 1, 2022. After completing the stays, you’ll be rewarded with enough points to exchange for a $50 gift card from several merchants including Lowe’s, Amazon, Visa, Bass Pro Shops, and Shell.
Make sure you read the full terms and conditions of this promotion, though, as some stays — including rooms booked at rates below $40 per night, award stays, and complimentary rooms — aren’t eligible.
What’s interesting about this promotion is that — in theory — you could just pocket the points and not purchase a gift card at all. Members who register for the promotion will receive between 5,000 and 8,000 bonus points after their second qualifying stay. With 8,000 points, you could book a free night at many of Choice’s cheapest properties. Most of the chain’s premium properties cost up to 35,000 points per night.
This promotion is similar to the last Choice promotion, through which travelers could earn 8,000 points after completing 2 separate qualifying stays. At Upgraded Points, we value Choice Privileges points at 0.6 cents apiece, meaning 8,000 bonus points is equal to roughly $48 towards a future Choice stay.
Choice has over a dozen brands under its umbrella, including some you’re likely familiar with, such as Cambria, Clarion, and Comfort. If you want to earn Choice Privileges points directly, the Choice Privileges® Visa Signature® Card earns 2x points per dollar on everyday purchases. You can also earn American Express Membership Rewards points on cards like The Platinum Card® from American Express which can then be transferred to the Choice Privileges program almost instantly.

This deal isn’t jaw-dropping by any measure, but for those who often stay in Choice hotels anyway, and were planning to do so before August 1, 2022, this is an excellent way to squeeze some more value out of those stays — or, if you’re so inclined — pick up a gift card at some popular merchants.
