Choice Hotels Privileges is the next major hotel chain to release their summer systemwide promo and guess what? It’s the same promo they run almost all the time!! They word the promotions differently in terms of get a free night, get a $50 gift card etc. however the gist of the promos are the same, they will ward you enough bonus points after you complete 2 separate stays to have 8,000 points after those stays. In this case it is the $50 Gift Card offer in that you can use those 8,000 points to redeem fir one by Sep 30. Your better option is to use those points towards a future award night or even conversion to an airline program to top off an account for an award ticket.
