We are all feeling the pain at the pump and Choice Privileges is offering $50 worth of relief from rising gas prices. When you stay three times at any Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion or Cambria Suites property in the U.S., Canada, Mexico or Caribbean at qualifying rates between June 1 and Aug. 14, 2008, you can redeem your points for a $50 gas card. After your third qualifying stay, Choice Privileges will add enough points to your account to reach the 16,000-point level, which can be redeemed for a gas gift card. At the normal 10 points per dollar spent earning rate, it would take 16 nights to earn a $50 gas card with an average nightly cost of $100. While a gas card is helpful, you could keep the points or redeem them for anything you wish, including free night awards, which start at 5,000 points. So you could potentially stay three nights and earn three nights at the 5,000-point level with this promotion. Only stays that are booked through 800-4CHOICE or http://www.choicehotels.com qualify for the point bonus.
Choice Privileges members who stay at MainStay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay, Econo Lodge or Rodeway Inn hotels in the U.S. between now and Aug. 14, 2008 will earn 1,000 bonus points for each stay. You must book through choicehotels.com to get the bonus points.
