However, Choice is also advertising on their website that as long as you book through their website you get 1000 bonus points per stay
I know the website says "every stay", and I made the same mistake as you, but the promo is only for the properties not in the 3/16K promo:
"MainStay Suites®, Suburban Extended Stay®, Econo Lodge® and Rodeway Inn® hotels in the U.S."
Programs: UA 2MM, DL 500k, CC Gold, HH Gold, Miracle Fruit-su Club, GP 1M
Can I begin a stay on August 14, and get in under the line? The release said , "...arrival between June 1 an August 14". The CSR I asked said, "That's the way I read it". Just looking for an experience-based read. Thank you.
Programs: PC Platinum, National Executive, CP Gold, Dividend Miles, Midwest Miles, OnePass
The way I read it checkins on 8/14 count.
I do not normally go for the gift cards because 16,000 points are better used on a $100+ hotel room than a $50 gas card, but CP and PC have already covered all the lodging for my vacation, so I ordered up a gas card last Monday and received it yesterday (the following Wednesday). I had figured on 4-6 weeks at least so I was pleasantly surprised. It got here in plenty of time to use on my vacation.
