Our Verdict

Last year we saw an offer for 64,000 points. Free nights start at 6,000 points per night and up to a maximum of 35,000 points per night (except in Australasia where it’s up to 75,000 points) and there isn’t any award chart (prices are flexible and somewhat tied to cash rate).

Because we saw a bigger offer so recently and how difficult it is to get approved for Barclays credit cards now I wouldn’t recommend this offer and won’t be adding it to our list of the best credit card bonuses.  If you have any questions about Barclays and before you apply for this card, I’d strongly recommend you read our post: 25 Things You Should Know About Barclays Credit Cards.

The elite bonus points per stay are listed twice and inconsistent: is Clarion hotels 200 or 250 bonus?

I thought this was Australia after a few IPAs but apparently it’s a thing.

Correction: It’s *15* points per eligible $1 spent at over 5,500 Choice Privileges locations, not 5.
