Will my points expire?
As long as you are an active Choice Privileges member, your points will not expire. You must have at least one qualifying activity every 18 months to maintain an active status and retain your accumulated points. Choice Privileges points will be forfeited in accounts with no qualifying activity during the previous 18 consecutive calendar months.
What does being an active Choice Privileges member mean? What is a qualifying activity?
To remain active in the program and retain your points, you must have at least one of the following activities every 18 consecutive calendar months:
*The Refer-a-Friend option awards points to your account when a friend enrolls in the Choice Privileges Rewards Program and completes a point-eligible stay. The point forfeiture date will be based on the date the points post to your account, not on the date of the referral.
What are examples of activities that do not qualify?
Examples of non-qualifying activities include stays that are not point-eligible, registering for a promotion, and gifting points (this only counts as a qualifying activity for the member who receives the points, not the member who gifts the points).
What if I check-in to a hotel before the date my points are set to forfeit but do not check out until after?
You must check out prior to the date your points are set to forfeit in order to retain those points.
When does this change go into effect?
From 1 February 2016 you will have 18 months to have a qualifying activity to keep your points active for an 18 additional months. Starting 1 August 2017, and continuing on the first day of each month thereafter, your points will be forfeited in accounts with no qualifying activity during the previous 18 months. No points will forfeit before 31 July 2017.
When do points forfeit?
Qualifying activity keeps your points active for 18 additional months, from the first day of the month after your activity is completed through the 18th month of inactivity, at 12:00 am PST. A qualifying activity is based on when points post or are removed from your account.
