Choice Privileges Has Some Sweet Spots

Choice, are we really talking about Choice Hotels?  You bet! With Wyndham nerfing their award chart Choice and Radisson have somewhat replaced them as the sneaky good (okay decent) random 3rd wheel option.  Choice in the United Stats is no beuno for sure, but their points come alive overseas.  You can snag hotels in Venice for 10K a night.  Skip the high prices of Atlantis, or maybe the hotel all together, but take advantage of the property and pools for 25,000 points a night.  You can check out Tokyo for only 8,000 points a night, that means you get 6 nights with this welcome offer.

The main draw back of Choice Privileges, for me at least, is that you can only book awards 100 days out.  This is an improvement of what it used to be I believe, but it is still annoying compared to other programs.  If you can get around that you can find value.

Final Thoughts

I am actually considering grabbing one for some specific trips I have in mind.  They also have a really cool hotel downtown Detroit I have been meaning to check out.  My main issue is that Barclays pretty much hates me and I haven’t been able to snag an approval from them in years.  Hopefully I sprinkled the right pixie dust this time before I hit the submit button!

Update: I was approved! Color me surprised 🙂

  1. Hmmm that looks interesting, as you rightly say, the points are worth more in Europe where I tend to travel these days.
    Only caveat for me is, I had the Barclay American Air Aviator M/Card w/60k mileage signup bonus.
    I used lightly and cancelled @ 1st anniversary 6 months ago.

  2. Congrats on approval, Choice is underrated. Could you give your /24 status? Or a range of that’s more comfortable, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20, LOL…?
