Why it’s not worth earning (most) hotel points

There are 17 hotel credit cards found on our best offers page. After completing the minimum spending requirements to earn the welcome offer, there is little reason to spend a dime on the vast majority of them.

Bonus airline miles for Choice hotel stays through 9/30

Choice Privileges is offering bonus airline miles with a couple of mileage programs for stays through September 30, 2019.

The Deal Get 1,000 United Airlines miles per stay or 1,600 AeroMexico ClubPremier points or per stay at Choice…

I’m writing this post in the hopes that it helps those looking to visit Napa Valley save a bunch of points/money while also more broadly helping even those…

(EXPIRED) Free night (8K points) after 2 stays w/ Choice Hotels

Choice Privileges is out with its latest promotion: complete 2 stays, get 1 free night. That’s not quite as good as it sounds yet at the same time may be better than it sounds depending on your perspective and use for Choice points since you’ll actually get 8,000 points rather than a free night certificate. Still, if you have upcoming Choice stays, it’s definitely worth registering. See our Current hotel promotions page for details on current promos…
