Best use of Choice points
There are definitely value to be had with Choice points. As I wrote in a post earlier this week, the four best uses of Choice points include:
- Stay at low category Choice hotels for 6,000, 8,000 or 10,000 points a night;
- Use points for expensive weekend or summer destinations, such as Napa Valley or Ocean City Maryland, for 20,000 or 30,000 points a night, instead of paying $300 or more.
- Use points for luxury stay at Preferred Hotels & Resorts around the world, ranging from 25,000 points to 55,000 points a night, or 10,000 points plus a cash co-payment;
- For 30,000 a night, stay at Comfort Suites Paradise Island with free access to water park at Atlantis resort, instead of paying $445 cash.
In previous years, these Choice packages were very popular and always sold out within the first few minutes. Most people purchased the packages and transferred the points to Southwest Airlines for the Companion Pass. But the loophole was closed on March 31 this year. Whether these packages are as popular as prior years, we will find out on today. In any case, if you plan to make a purchase, I suggest you to get ready few minutes prior to 1PM EST today, and hopefully your internet is faster than others!
