Choice Privileges members now have six new hotels in Hawaii where you can earn 10 points per dollar spent and spend your points for award stays. Five of the Clarion Collection hotels are in Honolulu and one is in Kailua Kona. You can enjoy beautiful beaches, children’s activity programs and casual family dining among other amenities. Award nights at the properties can be redeemed up to 60 days out with no blackout dates. The redemption rate for these hotels range from 25,000 to 35,000, with most available for 30,000 points per night.
And for something completely different, spend your points on Unique Experience Rewards Gift Cards. Choose from experiences such as concert tickets, sports events, hot air balloon rides, shark diving, and more relaxing endeavors such as a Spanish tapas wine party, spa beauty makeover, perfume workshop, yoga or what you know you really, really want — an ultimate rock star fantasy. The cost ranges from 16,000 points for a $50 Gift Card to 64,000 points for a $200 Gift Card that can be spent on your choice of more than 7,500 unique experiences throughout the U.S. and around the world. And if you’re looking for a different kind of gift for a recent graduate, one of these Gift Cards might be just what you’ve been looking for.
