Best Western Rewards isn’t the most generous loyalty program out there, and for that matter Best Western doesn’t have that many aspirational properties. However, the program does pretty consistently offer promotions. Best Western’s summer promotion ended on September 4, and the hotel group’s fall promotion has launched as of today.
Best Western Rewards fall 2022 promo
With a new promotion, Best Western Rewards members can earn double points on all eligible stays. The promotion is valid for stays between September 12 and November 21, 2022, at any Best Western branded property in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean.
There are some more things to be aware of:
- Registration is required prior to your first eligible stay (though it’s fine if you booked before registering)
- While this promotion is open to Best Western Rewards members regardless of where they live, hotel stays must take place in the United States, Canada, and/or the Caribbean, to be eligible for this offer
- Eligible stays include those booked directly with Best Western at non-special discounted rates
- It will take 7-10 business days for bonus points to post to eligible accounts
How rewarding is this Best Western promotion?
This promotion is in line with Best Western’s standard promotions. It’s probably not a reason to switch any stays to Best Western, but it’s better than nothing.
On the redemption side, Best Western requires anywhere from 8,000 to 36,000 points per night for a free night redemption, depending on the property. Personally I value Best Western points at somewhere around 0.5 cents each.
Best Western Rewards ordinarily offers 10x points per dollar spent, meaning that double points would get you an extra 10x points per dollar spent, which I value at an incremental 5% return (this doesn’t include the rewards you’d earn for credit card spending, plus any bonus rewards you’d earn if you have elite status with Best Western Rewards).
Best Western has just launched its fall 2022 promotion. Members can earn double points on all stays with no limits. By my valuation this promotion offers an incremental 5% return on Best Western spending — that’s better than nothing, but unlikely to influence many stays.
