“SHAKE IT UP” THIS SUMMER WITH BEST WESTERN:
FREE ROOM NIGHTS, DISNEY SWEEPS AND MORE
Stay three separate times this summer and earn a free room night voucher valid at any Best Western-branded hotel in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean
PHOENIX (June 20, 2011) – Best Western, THE WORLD’S BIGGEST HOTEL FAMILYSM, is giving U.S. travelers three great reasons to hit the road this summer: free room nights, up to 13,000 bonus Best Western Rewards® points and a chance to win a trip to Hollywood to attend the finals of Disney Channel’s “Make Your Mark, The Ultimate Dance Off” – Shake It Up Edition.
“Best Western wants to be families’ summer vacation headquarters. Our summer hotel promotion has something for everyone – for parents, it’s the value of a free room night; for kids, it’s our partnership with Disney Channel,” said Dorothy Dowling, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Best Western International. “And everyone loves our hotels’ swimming pools, free high-speed internet access and free breakfast at most of our properties.”
Between now and August 14, Best Western Rewards members who stay three separate times at any Best Western hotel will earn a free-night voucher, which can be redeemed at any of the 2,200 BEST WESTERN, BEST WESTERN PLUS or BEST WESTERN PREMIER hotels in the United States, Canada, the Bahamas or U.S. Virgin Islands. Vouchers are limited to one per person and must be redeemed before January 31, 2012. Register for the promotion at www.bestwestern.com/summer.
Elite members of Best Western Rewards can earn even more. To help celebrate Best Western’s 65th birthday, those who qualify for the promotion and complete two of their stays at at least two separate descriptor hotels (BEST WESTERN, BEST WESTERN PLUS and BEST WESTERN PREMIER) will earn 6,500 bonus points.
An additional 6,500 bonus Best Western Rewards points can be earned by paying for all three qualified stays with the Best Western Rewards MasterCard®.
For the fourth straight year, Best Western is partnering with Disney Media Sales and Marketing on a once-in-a-lifetime summer sweepstakes. One lucky fan of Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up” and three guests will win a trip to Hollywood to attend a taping of the “Make Your Mark, the Ultimate Dance Off” – Shake It Up Edition and meet some of the show’s stars. The trip includes round-trip transportation and hotel accommodations. One hundred first-prize winners will receive a $50 Best Western Travel Card®, redeemable like cash at any Best Western-branded hotel.
Fans can enter the sweepstakes between June 20 and August 14 by texting the word “SHAKE” to DISNEY (347639) or by registering as a member on the www.Disney.com/ShakeIt website and following the “how to enter” instructions. Fans may enter once per day.
