From Best Western: One Free Night After Three Paid Nights
Among the hotels late in launching their winter promotions are Best Western and Hyatt.
Best Western's is reviewed here. Look for a write-up on Hyatt's next week.
Between February 6 and April 8, Best Western Rewards members will earn a free-night voucher after three qualifying Best Western stays.
Vouchers may be redeemed at any Best Western hotel, subject to availability, but must be used by June 30, 2012.
If the three qualifying stays are charged to a Best Western Rewards MasterCard, the member will earn 1,000 Rewards bonus points as well.
Registration is required, but the registration link won't be live until February 6.
Deal or No Deal
There are three noteworthy negatives to this offer.
First is the promotion period: just over two months, versus three months for a number of competing promotions.
Second, and of less practical consequence to most, is the limit of one free night after three stays.
And the third is the June 30 deadline for completing the free night stay. It would have been nice to give Rewards members at least through the summer to take the free stay.
Nevertheless, a free night after three one-night stays is a solid value proposition—among the best of the current hotel promotions, in fact.
