Analysis of the Internet Only rates revealed to me in five hotel searches that the AAA rate was lower in 4 of 5 searches and the Internet Only rate at one hotel was the same rate as the AAA rate. The Oregon beach town Best Western with similar rates had an Internet Only rate cancellation policy 7 days before arrival compared to day of arrival booking AAA rate.

Compare the Internet Only rate carefully to other rates and the cancellation policy for different rates prior to booking to find the best deal.

The 1,000 or 1,500 (elite members) bonus points for booking hotel stays is earned on any qualified rate.

  1. Thanks Rick. Again timely. I am going to try my new Diamond status at a BW tomorrow. Earlier, I had booked a night for the 18th and just registered for the promotion today. According to the terms, it would appear that I’ll get the bonus points, right?
