Choice All Inclusive Promo: 50,000 Points, 2 Free Nights, Resort Credits & So Much More
Choice has been on our mind here at Miles to Memories quite a bit lately. I recently signed up for their increased credit card offer and Benjy broke down the program in complete detail. He even shared some partnerships Choice has with some pretty aspirational properties, something I don’t think many people know about. Now pretty amazing Choice all inclusive promo. It is so good, that if you play it right, you could essentially go on a free vacation.
Update: Offer Extended To November 10th. Thanks to reader Kevin for the update!

Breaking Down The Value For The Choice All Inclusive Promo
Whoa, that is a lot of value to unpack. They are throwing points, free nights, spa credits, kids stay free, welcome amenities and room upgrades at you. I wanna break down the value and see what we can get out of this deal. I am not going to put a value on the room upgrade or welcome amenity since they don’t hold much value to me.
50,000 Choice Points
Up first is the 50,000 Choice Privileges points. These are often valued at around $0.005-$0.007 cents a piece. You can get more value than that at the 8,000-10,000 point properties, especially in Europe. But we will calculate the value at the lower end of the spectrum. I would peg the 50,000 points at around $300 in value.
Free Night At The Resort
This value will depend on where you book and how much the rooms are. They probably have an increased cost already baked into the promo price too. Having said that I think $100 is a reasonable expectation when taking all things into consideration. How many nights it takes to earn the free night depends on where you go and where you live.
Future Free Night
The future free night offer is pretty restrictive. It requires you to jump through quite a few hoops so I am not going to put a value on this. But it could be an additional $100+ to anyone that can take advantage of it. Here are the terms:
Guests who book the Free Free Free + 1 Promotion will receive a complimentary free night when booking a return stay of 5 nights or more at AMResorts in the Americas/7 nights or more at AMResorts Europe any room category at any participating AMResorts property, in any destination. A certificate will be issued to the guest at time of checkout for any reservation booked under the Free Free Free + 1 promotion for 3 nights or longer. Guests will have 60 days from time of receipt to book their return stay in order to redeem the certificate for a free night. Return stay can be booked for travel between now and December 22, 2022. Certificate must be presented at time of check-in. Return stay does not have to be booked at the same hotel of the guest original stay. Return stay based on availability at time of booking.
$200 Resort Credit
This one is also a little gimmicky. They break the credit down into sections so that the credit can only be used for specific things. Here are the terms:
$200 resort coupons include four coupons worth $10 each, two coupons worth $20 each, and three coupons worth $40 each. Of these coupons, $100 can be used for spa treatment, $60 for romantic dining, and $40 for wine purchases.
- Spa treatment coupons are broken down into one coupon worth $20 and two coupons worth $40.
- Resort coupons for spa treatments are not combinable or valid for spa products at the Spa Boutique or 25-minute massages and treatments.
- Only one coupon can be redeemed per spa treatment.
- Romantic dining coupons are broken down into one coupon worth $20 and one coupon worth $40.
- Coupons for romantic dining are combinable up to $60 per romantic dining experience, but not valid for bottles of wine.
- Coupons for wine purchases are broken down into four $10 coupons.
- $10 coupons for wine can be used at any of the restaurant on property.
- They are not combinable – only one $10 coupon can be applied toward one bottle of wine.
Resort coupons cannot be applied toward the following items: beauty salon services, spa product purchases, telephone charges, dolphin experiences, gift shop purchases, boutique purchases, internet service (if applicable), marina services, dive shop, medical services, car rentals and travel agency services. They are not applicable for tips, taxes, private functions and/or special events such as Christmas and New Year’s Gala dinners.
It is tough for me to value this because it is all over the place. I could see people easily using the wine coupons at dinner, if they enjoy wine. The spa treatment could be decent if the prices are not outrageous. Getting $40 off two spa services is a decent value if the prices are in line. I am going to say most people should get $50 worth of value out of this. Be sure to add in your own valuation here, you may get a lot more out of it or nothing at all.
Kids Stay Free
A lot of all inclusive places will allow kids to stay free, except Hyatt on points bookings 😣😥, so this may be more theater than real value. But it is still nice to see since extra adults seems to add around $50 or so a night when I did a dummy booking. If you have 2-3 kids the free food does add up. I will give this a value of $150 since that is what you would probably save on groceries at home.
Choice All Inclusive Promo – Final Thoughts
The Choice all inclusive promo is one of the better offers like this I have seen. Some of the offers are gimmicky but you should be able to get $500+ in value out of it. If you are able to find a booking at the low end of the spectrum it could be like getting a free vacation.
This reminds me of the timeshare offers you see but it doesn’t require a presentation. I know quite a few people are considering Mexico or the Caribbean in the fall so this deal is perfect timing. Let me know if you end up booking anything.
Hat Tip to reader Kevin – thanks for the great find!
