Choice Hotels has just launched a revolutionary new dining rewards program that will change the face of Michelin-starred fine dining as we know it! (Okay, maybe not quite that dramatic…)
Introducing the Choice Privileges Eat & Earn program – because who needs to actually pay attention to what they’re eating when you can earn bonus points while shoving food in your mouth? Here’s everything you need to know about this groundbreaking dining revolution:
How to earn points with the Choice Eat & Earn dining program
Step 1: Register and link a credit or debit card – but don’t worry, any regular ol’ card will do. You don’t need some fancy cobranded credit card – unless you want one, of course.
Step 2: Choose from an extensive list of participating restaurants (how many is “extensive,” you ask? No idea. We didn’t actually count). Whenever you use your linked card at any eligible restaurant, whether for dine-in or ordering online through their site, you’ll automatically rack up those bonus points!
Step 3: Enjoy stuffing your face without feeling guilty about all those calories knowing that for every dollar spent on gluttony, you’ll be earning five precious bonus Choice Privileges points! But wait… there’s more!
Occasionally earning additional bonus points through promotions is also possible. And if tipping isn’t enough satisfying generosity for you and Uncle Sam gets involved with taxes (fun!), these are also eligible expenditures for winning big time rewards with every bite.
But wait.. there’s even more
Hold tight now folks – especially those grumbling stomachs – because there’s still something deliciously rewarding left in store…

Should I use the Choice Eat & Earn dining program?
Well, let’s see – what do you have against earning free stuff? Okay, okay, we get it. You may actually be looking to strategically maximize benefits and rewards programs. So who offers more bang for your buck when it comes down to American Airlines AAdvantage Dining awards versus frequent flyer points offered by IHG One Rewards Dine & Earn?
If numbers confuse or bore you then ignore this and carry on being dazzled by our witty infomercial style chatter…otherwise:
American Airlines AAdvantage Dining Awards gives three miles per dollar spent if alerts are received via email (hello inbox spam), however kick things off nicely with 11 purchases within one calendar year using their VIP status which heaves five miles per dollar spun into view. The Points Guy reckons his airline currency evaluation values total roughly 1.77 cents each making eligible dining earnings super generous offering returns estimated somewhere between 5/3% (*swoon*) all the way up towards elite statuses Americans loyalty point tiers.. Phewf (we need a nap).
On similar ground is Hilton Honors Dining paying out usually twenty-five Hilton Honours bonus points per dollar spent eating at their numerous participating locations around America! Plus more optionsSponsored Product that vary by location in most instances but also boost earning potential towards an incredible cut of the holiday cost.
So, essentially devouring free food to earn more points with Choice Privileges Eat& Earn is just as glorious as it sounds. The total rewards translate into a generous 3% cashback (TPG values) for your spending, which may seem like only pennies – until you think about all those potentially free vacations tho…
So get linkin’ and chewin’- the rewards are calling!
If you’re stressed trying to maximize every possible penny from multiple programs in an effort to curb upcoming summer costs or splurging on post-pandemic indulgences instead: Fear no more, because with numerous participating restaurants near each locality you won’t have to lift a finger very far before these extra offers start rolling in.
Although do keep in mind while reveling in this effortless way of raking up bonus loyalty points still requires some thought process behind it where credit cards are concerned; since no matter how much we love stuffing our faces we shouldn’t forget certain rules even when scoring prizes – alas!
