*Eligibility Requirements: You must be an active duty, reserve, retired member or spouse of the US Armed Services, including the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard, or the National Guard, with appropriate military identification, and be over the age of 18, to qualify for Military Benefits under the Choice Privileges rewards program. Choice Hotels reserves the right to disqualify anyone or refuse to honor a benefit for any person who does not fulfill the membership requirements at any time, in Choice Hotels’ sole discretion.
Benefits under the program are only available for members of Choice Privileges® rewards program, and only in those markets where the Choice Privileges rewards program is available. To become a Choice Privileges member, please visit www.choicehotels.com/CPMilitary to join. Once an eligible member enrolls in the Choice Privileges rewards program and updates their military status in their account, the member will receive Lifetime Gold Elite Status. Additionally, after completing their next qualifying stay, the military member will be awarded 2500 Choice Privileges bonus points. Members must book direct at ChoiceHotels.com or through the Choice Hotels mobile app to receive bonus points and members can only receive the bonus through this program once. The bonus points will be added to the member's account within 8 weeks following a qualifying stay. A stay includes all consecutive nights at the same hotel regardless of check-ins or checkouts. A “qualifying stay” is a stay at a participating hotel, booked direct through ChoiceHotels.com or the Choice Hotels mobile app, that is eligible to earn Choice Privileges points. Most stays are eligible to earn Choice Privileges points EXCEPT: rooms booked below certain rates, stays made in connection with certain hotel initiated promotions, reward night stays, complimentary rooms, rooms paid for as part of a convention or meeting, rooms booked through a travel agent or third-party online retailer including online travel agencies, wholesale packages, group tours, and stays booked using the employee discount or the friends and family discount.
While eligible military members will be awarded Lifetime Gold Elite Status, please note that in order to maintain an active status in the Choice Privileges Rewards Program and retain accumulated Choice Privileges points, you must engage in qualifying activity beginning with the first day of the month after your activity is completed through the 18th consecutive month of inactivity, such as completing a qualified point-eligible stay, earning points, airline miles, redeeming Choice Privileges points, earning points from a purchase using a Choice co-branded credit card, earning points with one of our partner programs, purchasing points, and referring a friend. Choice Privileges points will be forfeited in accounts with no qualifying activity during the previous 18 consecutive calendar months.
Choice Hotels reserves the right to change or discontinue this offer at any time. All Choice Hotels properties are independently owned and operated.
