Earn a $50.00 Gift Card When You Stay Two Times at Best Western Hotels — Again

S tay two separate times at participating hotel and resort properties in the United States, Canada, or the Caribbean Islands branded as Best Western now through Sunday, August 28, 2016 and receive a Best Western gift card worth $50.00 — but you must first register for this promotion prior to your first qualified stay; and you can earn 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points for stays completed during the promotion period when you book your reservation through an official channel of Best Western.

Earn a $50.00 Gift Card When You Stay Two Times at Best Western Hotels — Again

Although during the promotion period you can only earn a maximum limit of three promotional $50.00 Best Western gift cards for six eligible stays if you are a base status member and a maximum limit of five of the gift cards for ten eligible stays if you are an elite status level member — certainly better than the limit of one gift card of half the value in the most recent promotion — there is no limit on the number of bonus points which you may earn through this summer promotion.

Unlike the version of this promotion back in September of 2015 during which the gift card had a specific expiration date, the gift card expires on the date printed on it — typically 120 days after fulfillment or by Tuesday, November 15, 2016, whichever date occurs first — with no extensions, substitutions or replacements to be available; and it must be used at a Best Western branded hotel a minimum of 120 days after fulfillment from Best Western International. This promotion is not valid with any other offer, promotion, or discount; and is subject to cancellation or change without notice.

Terms and Conditions

A valid e-mail address must be provided in your account profile in order for your promotional gift cards to be sent electronically to your valid e-mail address within two to three weeks from satisfying the requirements of the promotion to earn a gift card. There will not be an option for a physical card to be mailed to the address provided in your account profile.

A qualified stay for the purpose of this promotion is defined as one or more consecutive nights at the same hotel property branded as Best Western at a rate eligible for earning points or earning airline or partner rewards through the Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program. You are permitted to check in and check out of the hotel property only once per qualified stay — meaning that two consecutive nights at a hotel property will not constitute two consecutive stays. Qualified stays which take place during the promotion period where the date of when you check in or check out of the hotel property overlaps the beginning or ending of the promotion period will be counted towards the promotion.

Members of the Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program residing within a participating country may stay at any Best Western branded hotel or resort property worldwide; while members residing outside of a participating country must stay within a participating country to qualify.

Other terms and conditions apply.

Summary

This mediocre promotion is better than the most recent one in terms of earning a gift card which has twice the value plus 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points; but participating hotel and resort properties are only in the United States, Canada, or the Caribbean Islands instead of worldwide.

Another variation of this promotion last year was similar; but hotel and resort properties worldwide participated in it — and 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points were not offered.

None of these promotions are all that spectacular — it is not as though people are exactly “chomping at the bit” awaiting the next variation of a stale promotion which is little more exciting than staring at a weed and watching it grow…

…so instead of taking what is essentially the same promotion and varying it, why not just consistently offer unlimited amounts of Best Western gift cards worth $50.00 — which expire six months after they are earned, with the expiration date printed on the gift cards — within the promotion period; plus 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points when staying two separate times at participating hotel and resort properties worldwide?
