Deal for April 3, 2015 –Save on Choice Hotel Points
Link: Daily Getaways Calendar
You can purchase up to 8 sets of discounted Choice hotel points from 0.4 cents per point to 0.45 cents per point:
- 20,000 Choice Hotel points for $90 (0.45 cents per point)
- 32,000 Choice Hotel points for $132 (0.41 cents per point)
- 36,000 Choice Hotel points for $155 (0.43 cents per point)
- 40,000 Choice Hotel points for $160 (0.4 cents per point)
This is an excellent deal because Choice normally sells points for 1.1 cents each! But this deal will NOT last! And you’ll need a Choice account to buy these points. So if you don’t have 1, create 1 now!
Each offer is listed as a 2 or 3 night stay at certain Choice hotels, but you’re really buying Choice points which are redeemable at any Choice hotel worldwide.
Choice hotels include:
- Ascend Hotel Collection
- Cambria Suites
- Comfort Inn
- Comfort Suites
- Econo Lodge
- MainStay Suites
- Quality Inn
- Sleep Inn
- Suburban Hotels
- Rodeway Inn
You can save a lot of money buying Choice hotel points through Daily Getaways and using them for award stays, especially at expensive European hotels. But you should check hotel prices first!
You could buy 76,000 Choice hotel points for $315 ($155 for 36,000 Choice hotel points + $160 for 40,000 Choice hotel points) and use 75,000 Choice hotel points for 3 nights at the Comfort Inn & Suites Kings Cross St. Pancras in June.
If you paid cash, 3 nights would cost ~429 British pounds (~$638). So you’d save ~$323 buying 2 sets of points through this deal.
Great Deal for the Southwest Companion Pass
You can transfer Choice hotel points to earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets someone fly with you almost free for up to 2 years on paid and award tickets!
Every 6,000 Choice hotel points gets 1,800 Southwest points. So you could buy 20,000 Choice hotel points for $90.
And after transferring 18,000 Choice hotel points to Southwest, you’d have 5,400 Southwest Companion Pass qualifying points.
This is 1 of several ways to get extra points towards the Southwest Companion Pass!
You can buy discounted Choice hotel points through Daily Getaways at 1:00 pm Eastern Time. These points are transferable to Southwest and could help you earn the Southwest Companion Pass.
This is a great deal because you can purchase up to 8 sets of Choice hotel points for 0.4 cents to 0.45 cents per point – a ~59% to ~64% savings over the normal purchase price of 1.1 cents each. So this deal will go FAST!
Buying points could save you money on award stays in European cities. But you should check hotel prices before you buy this deal.
