Choice Hotels has now changed it's Best Rate Guarantee (one which affects ONLY residents living in the United States). For these folks, instead of receiving your first night free, your compensation is now a price match (matching the lower rate found on a competing site) plus a $50 Reward Card -- a gift sent to you within 6 weeks of your completed stay. You may spend this card anywhere in the U.S. or District of Columbia where VISA Debit cards are accepted.
Limit: One $50 Reward Card will be provided per name on the booking and/or household for any thirty-day period between booking check-in dates.

Just like you, I'll be acquainting myself with these new T&Cs today! More info to come, if needed. I also hope to be getting some fresh deals up before too long -- I've had a very busy past month, but I am still alive!
