In a blog back in January, I opined that the promotion just launched by Best Western was limited in two respects. First, in contrast to a host of other hotel promotions, which extended into April and beyond, Best Western's offer lasted just over a month, ending on February 14. And second, there was a limit to the number of bonus points Best Western Rewards members could earn.
What I didn't know then was that Best Western had a new promotion set to begin on February 15, the day after the current offer expires. And it's an improvement on both counts.
The new offer applies to stays between February 15 and April 5, or just under two months. When it comes to bonus offers, longer promotion periods are always better.
And the offer itself—double points or airline miles for the second and subsequent stays—is not capped. In other words, there's no limit to the number of bonus points or miles that can be earned.
In addition to the double points, members who book their qualifying stays at BestWestern.com will earn 250 bonus points, up to a maximum of 500 bonus points for two bookings.
And lastly, all program members who register for the promotion will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes. Grand prize: one million Best Western Rewards points.
