Looking to book a summer vacation rental? If so, you may be able to pick up some Choice points along with your rental through Choice’s latest promotion. During this promotion, you can get 25,000 Choice points — which TPG’s latest valuation values at $150 — when you book a vacation rental reservation of three nights or more. You need to book by May 31, use the promo code SPRING25K and stay by Aug. 31.

This promotion applies to all properties on that are booked when you are logged in to your Choice Privileges account and that are eligible to earn Choice Privileges points. Examples of stays that wouldn’t earn Choice points, and hence also aren’t eligible for this promotion, are properties below $40 per night, stays booked through third party online retailers and complimentary rooms. The terms and conditions note that you won’t be eligible for other Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels bonus point offers during the time period of this promotion — so make sure this offer is the one you want to earn points through before booking.

The points you earn through this promotion will be deposited into your Choice Privileges account within four weeks of your stay. The promotion’s terms and conditions note that the offer is only available for Choice Privileges members who received the offer by email, so check for an email with “YOU Deserve a Vacation AND 25,000 Bonus Points” in the title before booking to ensure you are eligible. You must be a US or Canadian resident in order to earn points through this promotion.

There are Choice Vacation Rentals all across the country, and oftentimes rates are comparable with Airbnb properties. But, since the taxes and fees can be high, be sure to check all the way through to see the final price before deciding whether booking a Choice Vacation Rental is a good deal — even with the 25,000 Choice bonus points.

Plus, remember that Choice Vacation rentals are also bookable with Choice points, which can be transferred from American Express Membership Rewards points, bought during frequent sales and earned during promotions. But, generally you won’t get a good value for your points and will do better booking with cash.
