Details: Best Western Rewards Summer 2022 Promo

4

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, and the latest such offer has just been revealed, valid for stays this summer.

Earn a free night award and then double points

With a new promotion, Best Western Rewards members can earn a free night certificate after staying two nights, and then subsequently earn double points on stays. The promotion is valid for stays between June 6 and September 4, 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
  • You earn a free night certificate after staying two eligible nights
  • The free night can be redeemed for stays Sunday through Thursday nights; it can’t be redeemed Friday or Saturday night
  • The free night can be redeemed for stays between September 5, 2022, and February 16, 2023
  • The free night can be redeemed at any Best Western branded property in the United States, Canada, or Caribbean
  • Each member can only earn one reward night during the promotion period

It’s noted that upon qualifying for the free night award, you can expect an email offer inviting members to register for a double points promotion valid for the rest of summer stays. You must be opted in to email commutations to receive this invitation. Unfortunately we don’t know the terms of the promotion beyond that.

How rewarding is this Best Western promotion?

This is a pretty awesome promotion from Best Western. We frequently see the program offer a double points promotion, though earning a free night after the first two nights really sets this offer apart.

First 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. Furthermore, personally I value Best Western points at somewhere around 0.5 cents each.

With that in mind:

  • Earning a free night award after just two nights is exceptionally rewarding, especially since you could stay at the cheapest property for two nights, and then redeem at the most expensive property
  • As far as double points go, 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)

Bottom line

Best Western has just revealed the details of its summer 2022 promotion. Members can earn a free night after staying two nights, and can then earn double points on subsequent stays. This promotion is awesome, since it’s even better than the typical double points promotion offered by the program.

Do you plan on taking advantage of Best Western’s new promotion?

    I think the days of BW topping out at 36000 points are over. I’ve seen rates up to 70,000 points per night for standard rooms in the U.S. this summer.

      Yep, it's been ~70k for a while.
