1. Get a Free Night

Here's how much Quality Inn stands behind its online rates. If a traveler finds a cheaper price elsewhere, they'll match the rate, plus give him or her an extra free night at any hotel in the Choice Hotels chain.

2. Get Plastic

The Choice Privileges Visa Signature Card has no annual fee, but is packed with benefits, including 8,000 points for making the first purchase, plus an extra 24,000 points for the first stay at Choice Hotels - that's enough for nearly four free nights. Plus, every dollar spent at a Choice Hotel is good for 15 points.

3. Rewards

The Choice Privileges Rewards Program is free to join and comes with access to exclusive promotions, express check-in and the chance to earn free stays.
