Choice Hotels is running a promotion where you can purchase points for up to 30% discount. You need to purchase a minimum of 5,000 points to get a discount and at least 40,000 to get the highest discount level of 30%! As with any points buying situation, you should take a look at the cost of the reservation that you want to book and compare the cost to purchase points to see which one is more cost effective.
Choice Points Up To 30% Discount
1,000 – 4,000 points = No offer
5,000 – 14,000 points = 10% discount
15,000 – 29,000 points = 15% discount
30,000 – 39,000 points = 25% discount
40,000 – 50,000 points = 30% discount
At the 30% discount level, you can score points for approximately 0.77 cents per point.
