Choice Privileges credit card is a co-branded card of Choice Hotels that gives you 15 points per $1 spent at eligible Choice hotels, 5 points per $1 spent on the purchase of Choice Privileges® points or Choice Hotels gift card purchases, and 2 points per $1 spent on all other purchases. There is also a sign-up bonus of 50,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days, enough for up to 6 free nights at select Choice hotels. You can redeem your points for free nights at Choice Hotels or gift cards from over 80 restaurants and retailors. You’ll hardly be able to use this points anywhere else. That’s why we recommend you apply for a general rewards credit card instead. A good card to get is the Discover it® Miles credit card. It gives you unlimited 1.5 miles on all purchases, matches all of your earned miles at the end of the first year (if you are a new cardmember) and you can redeem rewards for any travel expenses, including Choice hotel stays, flights, popular cruises and other travel expenses. What is more, this card comes with no annual fee and no foreign transaction fee – use your card with no additional costs.
