With Mothers Day coming up, I find that now is the perfect time to get mom those gifts she is sure to love. As a mom, when I think of gifts I enjoy, I think that the gift of a spa day or a vacation can always be a great way to go. I am also one who, even when it comes to gifts, likes to find ways to make those gifts last or get the most out of them, like with earning cash back and points for rewards programs. So when I was introduced to the Choice Privileges rewards program through the Choice Hotels group, I was curious to see how they worked and also how I could earn points while treating mom this year.
See, when thinking of those gifts to get mom, I find that giving mom a vacation package for her to enjoy is something that is sure to put a smile on her face. And with the fact that those summer plans are being made now, gifting mom a vacation using the Choice Hotels as the hotel chain to go with while she is on vacation, helps to give mom the gift she is sure to appreciate and enjoy, as well as points that can be used towards this years summer vacation plans!
In fact, when I think of the amazing offers I can take advantage of just for being a member of the Choice Privileges program, I like that now I can earn free nights and more with some of the new benefits that are offered!
The program enhancements are being implemented to bring greater and faster value to the over 25 million members of Choice Privileges. Some of the new benefits include:
Your Extras. Weekday travelers can earn a special reward — a little something 'extra' — right when they check in. For each qualifying stay that includes at least 1 weekday night (any night Sun. through Thurs.), the member can earn a special reward of their choice. U.S members have 5 options, varying from Fuel Rewards® savings at participating Shell locations to Amazon.com credit. International members have 2 options: 500 bonus points or 100 airline miles from participating airline carriers.
FlexRewards. Get to a free night faster— Members can redeem points for free nights at discounted point levels at participating hotels, varying by season. There will be up to 2,000 hotels reduced during either the weekdays or weekend at any time.
Digital Gift Cards. The first hotel company to offer immediate in-app gift card downloads, Choice Privileges members can receive instant gratification with new digital gift cards.
Keep Your Points. As long as members stay active by completing a qualifying activity at least once every 18 months, they get to keep their points.
10 Points per Dollar. All 5,500 Choice Hotels now earn 10 points per dollar spent – including economy and extended stay hotels, such as MainStay Suites, Suburban, EconoLodge and Rodeway Inn. And, during our award winning promotions, it is now easier than ever to qualify since members no longer need to stay two consecutive nights at economy brands.
Then when it comes to putting together that vacation package for mom and or setting up those epic summer vacations this year, I like that with the Choice Hotels, they make it easy to find hotels, make the reservations, as well as earn and use those rewards! They make it simple because you get several options when it comes to booking your stays, by calling guest services, making a reservation through their website, or by even downloading the Choice Hotels Mobile App on iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon! Making the choice to go with the Choice Hotels when you are wanting to make plans to get away or give a vacation gift to mom so she can get away this Mothers Day, a great one to go with and one that can keep on giving when you sign up for the Choice Privileges!
