Would You Rather Earn 2,000 Points Per Stay or a $10 Gift Card?

I reported on a promotion by Best Western three days ago that you can earn a gift card worth ten dollars every time you stay at Best Western hotels from tomorrow, Monday, February 12, 2018 through Sunday, April 29, 2018…

Would You Rather Earn 2,000 Points Per Stay or a $10 Gift Card?

…but another aspect to this promotion is that you can actually choose which you would rather earn per stay at a participating Best Western hotel or resort property: 2,000 Best Western Rewards points; or a gift card worth ten dollars — and once you have chosen your earning preference, you cannot change it.

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

Before you can take advantage of this promotion, choose which benefit you prefer; and then book your reservations here.

Select Terms and Conditions

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.

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.

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 — including those of the Best Western Rewards frequent guest loyalty program — apply.


I do not recall seeing a past version of this particular promotion with a choice of either 2,000 Best Western points per stay or a gift card worth ten dollars per stay — which I believe further improves it.
