This new campaign builds on Best Western’s 2013 efforts to offer promotions that are easier to redeem and increase the value to more frequent guests. The winter savings are immediate, and bonus points are earned on top of base points for each stay. While other hotel brands have seen 2013 as an opportunity to devalue their programs, Best Western remains committed to providing more value to its loyalty program members.

It has the lowest redemption thresholds for awards, and is one of few loyalty programs that is truly international. With more than 4,000* locations in more than 100* countries, Best Western makes it easy for members to earn points that can be redeemed for global free room nights with no blackout dates, the Best Western Travel Card®, dining, shopping and entertainment gift cards, gas cards, airline/partner rewards and more.
