Best Western Rewards is the latest hotel loyalty program to offer a free night promotion for summer travel. This offer is for one free night at any Best Western hotel after two stays in any Best Western hotel worldwide between June 20 and August 15, 2010. While the promotion allows a free night credit to be earned at any Best Western globally, the free night reward is valid only for redemption at Best Western hotels in USA and Canada.
Registration is required for this promotion and the offer is only for residents of the USA, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands.
General members of Best Western Rewards are limited to one free night per member/household earned for this promotion. Best Western Rewards elite members may earn two free nights per member/household during the promotion period. Free night vouchers expire December 25, 2010.
Members who book stays online at Bestwestern.com and complete two stays during the promotional period earn an additional 250 bonus points. Pay with a Best Western cobranded MasterCard and you will earn an additional 1,000 points bonus. There is a maximum of one online booking bonus and one credit card bonus for this offer.
One piece of advice is to get your elite status match request to Best Western Rewards if you have not taken advantage of the elite “Status Match – No Catch” offer from Best Western’s loyalty program yet.
The terms and conditions “household” restriction sounds like there may be a limit of free night vouchers per household rather than just per member. This term is unclear to me. If I am elite and earn two free night vouchers, then is my wife who lives at the same address excluded from earning her own voucher?
Hotel night rewards from Best Western range from 8,000 points for a free night up to 36,000 points. Best Western Beach Resort in Monterey is a 36,000 points property. This property is actually located right on the sandy beach at the northern boundary of the city of Monterey. The story goes that Governor Jerry Brown in the 1970s seeing the hotel location directly on the beach of Monterey led to the coastal commission zoning act to require extensive review of development on the waterfront in California and maintain public access to the beach for any new development. For tourists the location of the Best Western hotel on the beach of Monterey is a great spot for children and tourists desiring an up close view of the sea and the city of Monterey across the water.
This is a great offer from Best Western Rewards. Two stays for as little as $50 or $60 per night and a free night or two in a $200 per night hotel makes this another great reason to plan on booking a hotel this summer. With over 4,000 Best Westerns to choose from there is hardly any trouble to take advantage of this summer offer.
