Choice Privileges 50K offer

Barclays has increased the offer on the Choice Privileges Visa Signature Card. Choice Privileges points can be very useful in some markets, particularly in Scandinavia. While this offer won’t appeal to everyone, it can certainly be quite valuable to those taking advantage of Choice sweet spots.

Quick Thoughts

We have previously highlighted the value of Nordic Choice properties in our sweet spot spotlight series. See the following post for more info on how to use points to terrific value in Scandinavia:

Outside of Scandinavia, there are also niche opportunities for good value from Choice. For example, Greg found a pretty cool Cambria suites a couple of years ago. In some European cities, there are quite nice Ascend collection properties.

On the other hand, this offer isn’t particularly useful in many places where Choice properties are quite cheap — often points prices do not correlate favorably to cash rates in the US.

While this offer probably isn’t the best fit for most readers, it is quite a bit better than the standard offer of 32K (though not quite as good as last year’s 64K offer, which required more spend). It’ll make sense in the right circumstances, but it’s a niche offer for sure.
