Best Western has launched their winter promotion for 15% off stays between November 23, 2015 and February 7, 2016. Members will also get 500 bonus points per stay during the promotion period if they register first.

There is no limit to the number of bonus points that can be earned during this promotion.

Click here to register.

The promotional 15% off rate is found by choosing the Limited Time Offer (OI) rate on Best Western’s website. It is not a requirement of the promotion to use the Limited Time Offer rates in order to receive the 500 bonus points. The 500 bonus points can be earned during the promotion period even if another qualifying rate is chosen.

After registering, I went to Best Western’s website to book a sample stay (since reservations needs to be made on bestwestern.com to receive the bonus points).

Choosing a random date of January 20, 2016 at a property in Coronado, CA the flexible rate of $190 was shown followed by the promotional rate of $161.50 (indicated as Limited Time Offer), and then the AAA rate of $171.

While the Limited Time Offer rate would charge a deposit immediately upon booking, it would still be cancelable and refundable until January 17, 3 days prior to arrival. The AAA booking would only require a credit card guarantee with no deposit, and would be cancelable and refundable until January 19, 1 day prior to arrival.

Both rates would qualify for the 500 bonus points.

Last year’s winter promotion offered 20% off, but the reservations were nonrefundable and non cancelable which was a huge drawback. This year’s promotion only offers 15% off, but reservations can be changed and cancelled until a few days prior to arrival since the rates are flexible. This makes this year’s promotion much, much better in my eyes.

Here are the full Terms & Conditions.
