Choice Privileges members earn points that are redeemable for free hotel nights, airline miles and other rewards. The Choice Hotels website saves a member's personal preferences so he can make hotel reservations quickly. During a hotel stay, members receive extended check-out, express reservations and check-in, and free high-speed Internet access. In addition, members receive complimentary newspapers during their hotel visits.
Membership in the Choice Privileges program is free. A member earns points for up to four rooms for each night of a qualifying hotel stay at Choice Privileges locations throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Canada and the Carribean. Choice Privileges locations are also in Mexico and Central America, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea.

Members also earn 10 points for every dollar spent at Comfort Inns and Comfort Suites. Members earn five points for each dollar spent at MainStay Suites, Suburban Hotels, Rodeway Inns and Econo Lodges.
In addition to earning points by staying at hotels, Choice Privileges members can also earn points by making purchases with the program's travel and shopping partners. In addition, members can earn points for making purchases on their Choice Privileges Visa cards.
