Best Western Rewards AAdvantage or Aeroplan bonus miles or $10 BW Travel Card per stay

Best Western Rewards has three promotions happening for stays over the next two to three months. There is a $10 Best Western Travel Card per stay offer from February 12 through April 30. This promotion offer has been repeated now for more than one year.

There are two miles offers for triple AAdvantage miles (750 miles/stay) or double Aeroplan miles (500 miles/stay).

Best Western Rewards members can sign up for all three bonus offers. Your earning preference for points or miles at time your stay posts determines what you earn for that hotel stay.

Best Western Gift Card Redemption Warning:

The main drawback of this deal is the e-mail coupon code is only valid for 120 days. I earned several of these gift cards last year and failed to redeem any of them before they expired.

Also, the fine print of the $10 gift card states you must present your discount code at hotel check-in. This fine print is not mentioned in the promotion T&C for the BWR $10 card.(See T&C at end of post)

Last year I attempted to use my credits for a hotel stay in Lithuania and was refused at check-out. The manager stated the hotel needed time to verify with Arizona HQ the validity of the gift cards and it was 2am in Arizona when I was checking out my hotel in Kaunas, Lithuania.

  1. That’s because (most) economy class fares on Cathay Pacific don’t earn AAdvantage mileage or elite status accrual. Premium Economy however earns nearly the same amount of elite qualifying activity and number of AAdvantage miles as you’d earn when flying in business class.
