8K Choice points after every 2 stays

Choice Hotels is out with a new bonus offer good for 8,000 points after every 2 stays. While Choice bills this as a “Stay twice, get a free night”, the truth is that it’s an offer for 8,000 points, which is enough for a free night at some Choice properties.

Hacking Avios

Earlier this week I posted “Searching for business class sweet-spots in Iberia’s OneWorld award chart.”  In that post I showed that it was possible to make Iberia OneWorld business class awards cheaper by tacking on economy segments.  Iberia OneWorld awards are awards using Iberia Avios where at least one segment includes an Iberia OneWorld partner that is not part of the Avios loyalty ecosystem (e.g. it applies when flying American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, etc., but…
