Earn a Gift Card Worth Ten Dollars Every Time You Stay at Best Western Hotels

Y ou can earn a gift card worth ten dollars every time you stay at Best Western hotels through Sunday, January 29, 2017 — but you must first register for this promotion and be a member of the Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program prior to your first qualified stay.

Earn a Gift Card Worth Ten Dollars Every Time You Stay at Best Western Hotels

The only limit to the number of gift cards which you can earn is the duration of the promotion period.

The gift card expires on the date printed on it — typically 120 days after fulfillment — 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.

You can also register for this promotion in person — for example, at the front desk of any hotel property branded as Best Western in the United States, Canada, or the Caribbean Islands.

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 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.

Eligible stays completed prior to registration for this promotion and enrollment for membership in the Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program will not count towards satisfying the requirements of this promotion.

An eligible 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. Exceptions of a stay include reservations booked through an Internet travel agency; a tour operator; and at a special discounted rate. 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. Eligible 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 who reside within North America may stay at any Best Western branded hotel or resort property worldwide; while members residing outside of North America must complete their stays at any Best Western branded hotel or resort property in North America.

Other terms and conditions apply.

Summary

This promotion may seem more mediocre than the one earlier this year where you could have earned a gift card worth $50.00 for every two stays; but with that promotion, you could 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 — but unlike the current promotion, you could have also earned an unlimited amount of bonus points during the promotion period.

Another similar promotion earlier this year gave you the opportunity of earning a gift card worth $25.00 for every two stays plus 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points.

Another variation of this promotion last year was similar where you could have earned a gift card worth $50.00 for every two stays; but 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points were not offered.

As I have written in an article in the past, 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?

Better yet, why not simply offer unlimited amounts of Best Western gift cards worth 15 or 20 dollars for each stay within the promotion period; plus either 500 or 1,000 Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points per stay at participating hotel and resort properties worldwide?

Even better is to pepper these promotions once in a while with an incentive which would be difficult for members to refuse — such as get a free stay with a minimum number of paid stays; or offer a certain multiple of Best Western Rewards points for every stay during a specific period?

The trend with some frequent guest loyalty programs has been to simplify promotions while ensuring that they are reasonably rewarding enough to maintain interest from members and customers. Best Western Rewards is on the right track; but if the variations with each promotion — such as geographic locations where the promotion is valid, which is minor but significant enough to potentially be irritating — were simplified and the earnings improved to be more rewarding, the frequent guest loyalty program could potentially have a more loyal membership with an increase in members.
