Best Western Selling Gift Cards With 20% Bonus

Filed Under: Best Western, Great Deals

We’re increasingly seeing travel brands get creative when it comes to generating revenue during these tough times. In particular, we’ve seen hotel brands sell discounted gift cards for future stays, and we’ve now seen these promotions from Anantara, Belmond, Marriott, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and more.

We can now add another hotel group to the list…

Best Western selling gift cards with 20% bonus

Best Western is selling e-gift cards with a 20% bonus through September 30, 2020:

  • With each $100 Best Western gift card you get a $20 bonus card
  • Each person can purchase up to $500 worth of Best Western gift cards through this offer (for a total of a $100 bonus)
  • While the main gift cards purchased don’t have an expiration date, the bonus gift cards expire on December 31, 2020
  • You can purchase gift cards in USD or CAD, and then they can be used worldwide
  • Best Western gift cards are transferable
  • Gift cards can’t be used as a form of reservation guarantee, and you also can’t use them for pre-paid rates
  • This promotion is valid exclusively for residents of the US, Canada, and the Caribbean

Bottom line

If you stay at Best Western properties with any frequency then this promotion could make a lot of sense. The main gift cards you purchase don’t expire, but just remember that you have to use the bonus gift cards by the end of the year.

Given that these cards are transferable, there’s quite a bit of flexibility here.

Anyone plan to take advantage of this Best Western gift card promo?

  1. A relatively weak offer from Best Western given the limited validity of the bonus value and the limitations on using these cards for prepaid rates.

    The fact that the cards are transferable seems like the bare minimum for a gift card so not sure how that offers “quite a bit of flexibility”.

  2. I agree with SeeSharp. Marriott just did a similar promo with no expiration date even on the bonus section.

    How likely is travel by the end of the year? And a 100 dollar maximum bonus is pretty lackluster.
