- September 1, 2017
- Choice Hotels
I wanted to contribute a little something to help fellow RFDers who like to travel a little and save some cash. For visibility, I decided to make a Hot Deal out of this technique to show you possibilites. I'll start with the deal for those who want to skip the blabla and explain it afterwards.
DEAL: $112USD per night instead of 199/249.
Checkin: September 1st to September 3rd (purposely chose the long weekend for anyone looking to go out!)
Hotel: CLARION HOTEL PARK AVENUE (this can vary a lot but for this deal, it's them).
Distance: About a 10 min walk from the heart of Times Square

How to pay: Using Choice Hotel Points (12,000 right now instead of the normal 30,000)
Ok now the explanation for those who aren't familiar with choice hotel points:
Like you can imagine, you earn points when you stay at their hotels BUT anyone can apply for a choice points card and PURCHASE points. Every card member can buy upto 50,000 points per year.
Here are the rates for buying points (which has a promotion as we speak if you buy in bulk):
1,000 - 4,000 points = No offer
5,000 - 14,000 points = 10% discount
15,000 - 29,000 points = 15% discount
30,000 - 39,000 points = 25% discount
40,000 - 50,000 points = 30% discount
1000 points = $11 USD
24,000 points (this room for 2 nights on a WEEKEND!!!): $224.40USD (due to promotion)
This makes this deal $112 per night instead of the going rate of 199/249.
Sure there's a little bit of hassle if you are new to setup your account but I have been traveling this way for years. A few months ago, I stayed at the CAMBRIA HOTEL & SUITES NEW YORK - TIMES SQUARE for 8.000 points per night ($80) instead of their going rates of $349.
Alright hopefully it's ok I posted it in this forum as there is a deal here.
I'll check back if anyone has any questions.
