I searched several of the 27 destinations listed for this sale and I did not find this flash sale rate offer at several hotels I checked. Where I did find this promotional rate, the offer had mixed results for savings compared to AAA.
- Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn, Durango, Colorado = Flash Sale rate is same as AAA discount rate
- Best Western White Mountain Inn Franconia, New Hampshire = Flash Sale rate is $5.00 per night less than AAA rate.
- Best Western Plus Rama Inn, Sisters, Oregon = Flash Sale rate is $13 to $15 less than AAA rate.
- AAA rate is 10% discount on BAR at each of these three hotels.
In all cases the AAA rate had a flexible rate cancellation policy compared to the advance purchase, nonrefundable Flash Sale rate.
