Best Western is running a promotion on the sale of its gift cards which sees customers being offered a $20/ £20/ €20 bonus gift card for every $100/ £100/ €100 gift card that they purchase. For some, this will be a very good deal while for others a key condition of this sale will be an issue.

Key Terms

  • Best Western Travel Cards may be used at any Best Western®branded hotel worldwide and can be purchased in a variety of denominations in either USD, CAD, GBP, or EUR.
  • Purchased Travel Cards have no expiry date and can only be purchased with a credit or debit card on the website to earn the bonus card (BWR point purchases or on property purchases for Travel Cards will not be awarded a bonus card).
  • The $20/ £20/ €20 bonus gift cards expire on 30 June 2021.
  • A maximum of $100 of bonus travel cards can be earned.
  • Guests must have the plastic, electronic or digital printable format of the Travel Card in their possession to receive the value of the card.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the sale page.

Quick Thoughts

The biggest issue here is the fact that the bonus travel cards will expire on 30 June 2021 so that doesn’t leave very much time to use them.

Another issue is that Best Western gift cards cannot be used on pre-paid rates so unless you were going to buy a non-prepaid rate anyway, the extra cost of paying a slightly higher rate will offset at least some of the bonus that’s on offer.

The good news is that the regular travel cards don’t have an expiry date so if you’re planning to stay with Best Western before the end of June, you could use the bonus travel cards first and then use the regular travel cards as and when you need them going forward.

Note: It’s worth keeping in mind that thanks to another current Best Western promotion, it’s actually possible to generate more free gift cards from the gift cards purchased in this sale (albeit these will be gift cards with a short shelf life too) – Through 9 May 2021, Best Western is offering customers a $25 Best Western gift card for every night stayed (up to a maximum of 4 bonus gift cards which will expire on 31 August 2021) 

Bottom Line

For anyone who’s looking to book a stay with Best Western in the coming few months this promotion could offer a nice way to save some cash but with prepaid rates not being bookable with gift cards and with the bonus gift cards expiring at the end of June, this is a niche deal that will probably only be of genuine use to serious Best Western fans.
