Barclay Choice Visa, 32,000 Points Bonus

Earn 32,000 bonus points with a new Barclay Choice Privileges Visa Signature Card, when you spend at least $1,000 within the first 90 days. That’s enough for 4 free nights, since 8,000 points can be redeemed for a free night at over 1,500 Choice Privileges location.

You might not find anything decent at that rate stateside, but there’s some great properties overseas that surely are worth it. There’s actually some properties that can be booked at 6,000 a night.

Bonus Points will be awarded at the close of the billing statement after the qualifying transaction(s) have posted. This is much better than the previous offer that required a paid stay for most of the bonus.

Choice Privileges loyalty program is a bit different from other programs and a bit confusing. There’s no rewards chart as far as I know but you can still check the rate for any hotel at their website. Just select your destination and preferred dates and select “Choice Privileges Reward Night” in the drop down menu.

The worst part is availability. Mainly because you can’t book more than 30 days prior to planned arrival. With this card you have Elite Gold Status, so that gives you 50 days, but it’s still not a lot of time when you’re planning a vacation.

In the US there’s not many properties that will make you salivate. But you can find great properties for 8,000 points in Paris, Rome, Stockholm, Prague, Japan etc. You can even find properties at 6,000 a night as I mentioned above, such as this one in Honduras. Let me know of any other great redemption for Choice points.
