Stay Twice and Earn a Free Night at Choice Hotels Properties

You can earn an unlimited amount of free nights with this promotion by Choice Hotels, as you earn 8,000 Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points — enough for a free night at greater than 1,500 hotel properties — after each second qualifying stay between February 28, 2013 and May 15, 2013.

However, you must register for this promotion before arrival and book your stay at a qualifying rate.

While a qualifying stay could mean a minimum of one night per stay at Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Collection hotel properties, each stay at Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties must be a minimum of two consecutive nights per stay to qualify for this promotion.

Elite Diamond and Elite Platinum members can book directly with a hotel property; however, if you book through the official Internet web site of Choice Hotels, you will receive 100 additional Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points with every qualifying stay.

If you book early, you can save up to 20 percent on room rates — but the reservation must be booked through the official Internet web site of Choice Hotels using your Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program account number and must be made at least 7, 14, 21 or 30 days in advance, which will vary based on the hotel property for which the reservation is being made. Be aware that you cannot change or cancel your reservation once it is booked, and the discounted rate is not refundable. Your credit card will be charged for the total reservation amount within 48 hours of booking your reservation.

Other terms and conditions may apply.

As I advised during a similar promotion last year, you may want to avoid staying at Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties because they require a minimum of two consecutive nights per stay to qualify for this promotion. More often than not, staying at Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Collection hotel properties would be a better value for taking advantage of this promotion — unless the room rate at any of those hotel properties is at least double the room rate of the Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel or MainStay Suites hotel properties.

If you want to redeem your Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points for a gift card of your choice worth $50.00, you may do so — but it will cost you double the Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program points compared to the similar promotion last year.

Now that is a devaluation for an otherwise decent promotion…
