Members of Choice Privileges can now choose triple points or triple airline miles starting with their second stay between Feb. 1 and April 30. Eleven airlines are partners in the Choice Privileges program where members can earn miles or points when staying at any Comfort Suites, Quality Inn, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or MainStay Suites hotels in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean or Mexico.
How rich is this offer? The Comfort Inn Manhattan offers a free nights’ stay at 20,000 points. Rooms can be booked at the same hotel for around $200 a night — that would translate to 6,000 points per night when getting triple points. A free night at this hotel could be claimed after as few as four nights, depending on the amount you spend per night. Choice Privileges members get 10 points for each U.S. dollar paid in room revenue at qualifying rates, excluding taxes, restaurant or other incidental charges. Don’t forget though, the triple miles offer comes into effect after your second stay. If members choose to earn miles instead of points, most airlines offer 250 miles per stay, so at 750 miles per stay, you would get that much closer to your next free flight.
