Best Western AAA earn $20 travel card per night May 22-Sep 4, 2017

Despite registering for Best Western $10 travel card per night promotion two days ago and the 1,000 AAdvantage miles per stay promotion in the past month, I was able to change my Best Western Rewards offer once again to Best Western Rewards AAA member $20 travel card per night promotion for hotel stays May 22 to Sep 4, 2017.

Best Western AAA $20-night

Best Western Rewards $20 per night looks like a better deal for me than Le Club Accor Hotels 120 EUR for 6 nights

I spent much of the past week planning Accor Hotels stays in Poland and Czech Republic for my summer travel to earn 120 EUR in hotel credit with three 2-night stays.

Le Club Accorhotels €120 summer promotion, book by May 23

Le Club Accorhotels had a great promotion for 6,000 bonus points worth 120 EUR for stays this summer. There were all kinds of Accor Hotels rate deals in places I would be this summer. My booking reluctance was the May 23 deadline for booking Accor Hotel stays eligible to earn 6,000 bonus points.

Then, Best Western’s promotion caught my eye for $10 per night Travel Card with every Best Western hotel stay from May 22-Sep 4.

Loyalty Traveler – Best Western $10-$20 Travel Card per night May 22-Sep 4, 2017

I did not see the AAA $20 per night promotion offer when I originally published my article on Best Western Rewards $10 per night promotion two days ago. A reader pointed out the better AAA $20 per night offer.

Terms for both promotions are basically the same.

BW offers

Best Western offers only showed me a corporate $20 offer. Once a reader provided the link, I was able to unregister for the $10 per night offer and register for AAA $20 per night offer.

Promotion Value view through Cheap Poland Hotels

My hotel needs this summer where Best Western Hotels are one of the best deals are Poland and Prague.

Here are sample Best Western rates in Warsaw, Poland in July.

Best Western Hotel Portos, Warsaw, Poland

$38.93 all-in per night July 18-22, 2017

BW Warsaw Hotel Portos rate

4 nights = $155.72 on advance purchase prepaid rate.

This $156 Warsaw, Poland stay should earn $80 in Best Western travel card credit.

Warning: Travel card credit can be earned on an advance purchase rate, however, travel card credit earned from stays cannot be redeemed on advance purchase prepaid stays. You will need a flexible cancellation hotel rate, like AAA rate, when you redeem $80 BW Travel Cards.

Net value for this 4-night Best Western Warsaw stay is $156 paid now and $80 hotel credit on a future Best Western hotel stay within 120 days of card issuance, a date generally 7 to 14 days after your eligible hotel stay.

The quick expiration of Travel Card value is the main limitation to this BWR promotion offer. However, this deal is more favorable to me than the Accor Hotels 120 EUR offer for 6 nights this summer. My summer travel in places I will be visiting in Poland and Czech Republic have great hotel deals with low rates in both Accor Hotels and Best Western. The deadline to book Accor Hotels for 6,000 bonus points yesterday happened to be a date before I finalized my plans. Best Western AAA $20 per night looks like the best deal for me now.
