Choice Privileges launched in early June its Summer 2020 promotion (read more here) for a minimum of 8,000 points after every two stays through September 7, 2020.
There is a twist to this offer if your two stays take place at Cambria-brand. Then you will earn a minimum of 5,000 and a maximum of 20,000 points for the stays.
Note that Choice will bonus the base points that you earn from your two Cambria stays to 20,000, which is enough for a free night at more than 50 Cambria hotels.
Choice has been offering status matches, fast tracks, and bonus points for stays at their Cambria-brand. I guess that they try to poach business from competing brands.
Promotion registration required at www.choicehotels.com/deals/free-night before the first qualifying check-out. The promotion is only available to members of the Choice Privileges® Rewards Program who register for this promotion, and then make two separate qualifying stays at participating hotels (WoodSpring Suites® hotels and Ascend Hotel Collection® all-inclusive resorts, among others, are not participating) with arrival between June 10th, 2020 or later and both stays completed by September 7th, 2020. A “stay” is any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. A “qualifying stay” is a stay that is during this promotion at a participating hotel through a qualifying channel (see Qualifying Channel, below) that is eligible to earn Choice Privileges points. Most stays are eligible to earn Choice Privileges points EXCEPT: rooms booked at rates below $40 USD per night, certain hotel initiated promotions, reward night stays, complimentary rooms, rooms paid for as part of a convention or meeting, rooms booked through a travel agent or third party online retailer including online travel agencies, wholesale packages, group tours, and stays booked using the employee discount or the friends and family discount. Stays at vacation rental property locations and Choice Hotels® properties in the following countries are excluded from this promotion: Japan, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. You must maintain an address in the U.S. (includes U.S. territories) to be eligible.
Registered members will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 to a maximum of 8,000 bonus points after the second qualifying stay. The number of bonus points awarded depends on the number of base points earned from the two separate qualifying stays, with points varying by hotel. The total of base points plus bonus points awarded, however, will be at least 8,000 points, which is the number of points required for a future free night at over 1,000 Choice®; hotels worldwide (see Free Nights, below).
Registered members with two qualifying stays at Cambria® Hotels will be awarded a minimum of 5,000 to a maximum of 20,000 bonus points after the second qualifying stay.

The total of base points plus bonus points awarded, however, will be at least 20,000 points, which will allow redemption for a future free night at 50+ at Cambria® Hotels (subject to Cambria Free Nights section, below).
Some states and local jurisdictions are imposing restrictions on hotels accepting guests due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which are subject to change at the discretion of state and local authorities. Please check with your destination hotel prior to departing for the hotel to confirm the status of any hotel guest restrictions.
Qualifying Channel: Members must book stays via ChoiceHotels.com, the Choice Hotels mobile app, or 800.4CHOICE.

Any change made to earning preference will remain in effect after the promotion has ended, unless the member changes it. Allow 72 hours from check-out for points to post. Request for bonus points made by members who did not register for the promotion will only be considered up to 60 days after the promotion ends; request thereafter will be automatically denied.
