Best Western’s end of the year promo is out, which offers a $10 Best Western Travel Card with every stay between November 28, 2016 and January 29, 2017.
Earlier this year Best Western had a similar promo where you could earn a $25 Card but it took two stays to earn. True, the amount of the Travel Card you earn with this promo is less after two stays ($20 vs $25). Those that have just one stay planned or those that tend to have single night stays will benefit from this promotion.
The offer is open to all Best Western Rewards members, so if you don’t yet have an account you can sign up for one by following this link.
Note that Best Western Rewards members that reside in North America can stay at any Best Western branded property worldwide to participate in this promo. However, those residing outside of North America can only earn the Travel Cards at Best Western branded properties in North America.
You must register for the promotion before staying, and once you have qualified for the Travel Card it will be sent to your email within 1-2 weeks. No plastic cards will be mailed this time, so members are encouraged to check their spam filters in case the email goes missing and more than 3 weeks have passed.
You can earn unlimited Best Western Travel Cards during the promotion. Typically Best Western Travel Cards do not have expiration dates, but these Travel Cards must be used within 120 days.
I think this is a good promotion, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to book travel just to get the Travel Card. I’d also prefer to have a plastic card so if I didn’t want to use the credit I could give it easily to someone else. For those who already have some stays planned at Best Western properties though, this might be a great way to rack up some credit for future stays.
