As fall hotel bonuses go, Best Western’s is about middle of the pack, and will require some strategic planning to make the most of.
Between September 23 and November 18, Best Western Rewards members will earn double points for the second stay at any Best Western hotel, and triple points if they book their reservations through bestwestern.com.
Non-elite members may earn the bonus twice, for the second and fourth qualifying stays. Elite members may earn the bonus up to four times, for the second, fourth, sixth, and eighth stays.
In addition, members who use their Best Western Rewards MasterCard to pay for their first two stays will earn an additional 1,000 bonus points.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
The typical multi-stay promotion would award bonus points for the second and all subsequent stays. Example: Wyndham’s current offer of quadruple points or airline miles for the second, third, fourth, and fifth stays.
This promotion, by contrast, only awards bonus points for the second and fourth stays. Not for the first. Not for the third. And not for the fifth or subsequent stays.
That not only makes the offer less valuable, it also makes it harder to get good value for the stays that do qualify. If, for example, your more expensive stay happens to be the first or third rather than the second or fourth qualifying stay, your bonus will suffer accordingly.
Triple points is a decent if unspectacular bonus. Before pursuing it, however, try mapping out your trips to ensure your stays earn the most points possible under Best Western’s rather stingy scheme.
