Card Benefits

  • 15 points per $1 spent at eligible Choice Privileges locations with your Choice Privileges® Visa® Signature Card and Choice Privileges membership.
  • 5 points per $1 spent on the eligible purchase of Choice Privileges points or Choice Hotel gift cards.
  • 2 points per $1 spent on purchases anywhere else.
  • Enjoy the perks of Elite Gold Status and get a 10% point bonus every time you purchase a stay with Choice Hotels.
  • No annual fee.

Analysis

This is the highest ever bonus on this card. But, even at 40,000 points, it might not be worth much to most people. In the US you can get 5 free nights in their low-end properties which are not the best around. If you’re aiming for luxury, you’ll probably get just one night. Redemption start at 6,000 a night and you can also use Points Plus Cash for reward nights starting at just 6,000 points plus cash.

You can definitely do better abroad. You can find hotels in lots of major cities in Europe for example for just 8,000 points a night, which makes this bonus worthwhile.

Conclusion

This is a decent bonus for a no-fee card that only requires $1,000 in spending. Best use of points is abroad. In the US you’ll have to settle for a few nights in some shady hotels.
