Current Choice Privileges promotions: Earn bonus points and more


There are so many hotel loyalty programs from which to choose. But one worth keeping an eye on, especially after Radisson Rewards Americas became part of it in July 2023, is the Choice Privileges program.

One aspect many travelers love about Choice Privileges is its excellent hotel promotions, which allow you to rack up points quickly. Here’s a summary of the current promotions available to U.S.-based travelers.

Earn a $50 gift card after 2 hotel stays

One of the best Choice Privileges promotions is back. For up to eight stays between June 3 and Aug. 5, you’ll earn at least 8,000 Choice points for every two hotel stays.

According to TPG’s June 2024 valuations, Choice points are worth 0.6 cents each, meaning 8,000 Choice points are worth about $48. But through Oct. 5, you can redeem Choice points earned through this promotion for select gift cards at a rate of 8,000 points per $50 gift card.

Before checking out from your first qualifying stay, register for the promotion here. You must book a qualifying rate through a qualifying method (such as the Choice website, mobile app or phone booking center) to earn points. Most rates that typically earn Choice Privileges points are qualifying rates.

Your Extras

Your Extras provides extra perks on points-eligible stays that include a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night. The perks vary depending on where you reside. U.S.-based travelers can currently choose one of the following perks for each weeknight stay:

  • 400 Choice Privileges points
  • 100 airline miles
  • $2.50 Amazon credit
  • $5 Starbucks card
  • $3 Uber trip discount

To get a perk on eligible weeknight stays, select the Your Extras benefit you want in your online Choice Privileges account. Once you’ve chosen it, this choice will apply to all future stays. However, you can change your preferences anytime using your online account.

Choice credit cards

Hotel credit cards can unlock extra benefits and bonus earnings on stays with your favorite hotel brands. Choice Privileges loyalists have the following two cards and their welcome bonuses to consider:

Both cards offer more than 1 point per dollar spent on stays at participating Choice hotels and qualifying purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, home improvement stores and phone plan services.

I particularly like the Choice Privileges Select Mastercard, as it offers cardholders 30,000 bonus points every account anniversary. According to TPG’s June 2024 valuation of Choice points, 30,000 bonus points are worth $180 — more than enough to justify the $95 annual fee.

Choice Privileges Eat & Earn

Choice Privileges offers a dining rewards program called Choice Privileges Eat & Earn. To use the Eat & Earn program, sign up and link at least one card to your account. You’ll earn 5 Choice points per dollar when you use the enrolled card to pay at participating restaurants.

Diamond elite status jump

Choice Privileges’ top-tier Diamond status doesn’t provide many elite perks. However, it provides a 50% point bonus on paid stays and complimentary breakfast for you and one registered guest at participating Radisson upscale brands.

So, if you stay with Choice frequently, it may be worth boosting your status with Cambria’s Diamond elite status jump. You must complete a qualifying stay at a Cambria hotel to utilize this elite status jump. Then, send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your Choice Privileges number
  • Screenshot or copy of your Cambria hotel guest folio/receipt from a recent stay
  • Proof of elite status in another hotel program

Choice may offer Diamond status for the current year if your qualifying stay or request is between January and June. If your qualifying stay and request are between July and December, Choice may offer you Diamond status through the end of the following year.
