Earn 8,000 Points (Enough for a Free Night) After 2 Stays With Choice Hotels

There’s an easy way to earn lots of points with Choice Hotels this spring.

Until April 22, 2015, you’ll earn 8,000 points when you stay twice at Choice Hotels with their “Choose Choice Twice, Get a Night at No Price” promotion.
