It’s easy for Wisconsin Farm Bureau members to save 20% at almost 5,000 Choice Hotels worldwide or 20% off the Best Available Rate at more than 8,000 participating Wyndham Hotels and Resorts worldwide.
Langlade County Farm Bureau member Tony Koss benefited from the 20% savings while he enjoyed the fall colors in Upper Michigan.
“After selling the cows about two years ago, I thought last fall would be a good time to travel around Upper Michigan,” said Tony. “Using the Farm Bureau member benefit for Choice Hotels, the savings was about $18 to $19 dollars a night and I stayed in Newberry, Houghton and Ironwood.”
Tony explained that using the Choice Hotel member benefit is easy to use.
“I called the number that is on the Farm Bureau website and provided the dates and the Farm Bureau identification number and within five to 10 minutes, my reservation was completed,” explained Tony.
Farm Bureau members can save even more if they sign up for the Choice Privileges rewards program to start earning points towards free nights or flights in addition to the 20% discount.
Tony was a third-generation dairy farmer, milking about 45 Holstein cows. He now assists other farmers in the area. Tony’s family has been long-time Farm Bureau members.
“By sharing my experience I hope to inspire others to use the Farm Bureau member benefits,” added Tony. “In the past, I also have used a member benefit to purchase a vehicle.”
Tony serves on the Langlade County Farm Bureau board of directors and town board and previously served on the county board. He also volunteers for his church.
