New Benefits from Best Western Rewards

What are the new benefits for Best Western Rewards® Members?

1. Free nights redeemed now count towards achieving Elite Status, just as other qualified nights.

2. Gold Members are now eligible for Room Upgrades (see terms and conditions) and the Welcome Gift at check-in, which may be either additional bonus points or a beverage and snacks.  Previously just Platinum, Diamond, and Diamond Select were eligible for this.

3.  Platinum, Diamond, and Diamond Select members now get 10% off free night redemptions.  This will come in the form of a rebate back to their account for 10% of the required redemption amount. The rebate will be posted to member accounts within 10 business days of the property requesting re-imbursement from BWR for the free night award.

4.  Diamond and Diamond Select members are guaranteed to have free night availability at the time of reservation, as long as there are available rooms. To be eligible, the member must contact BWR Elite Customer Service at (800)-444-7646 to reserve in advance and clearly state they are redeeming for a free night when making the reservation.  Reservations for free nights made through other channels are subject to available normal free-night inventory controls as designated by that hotel, and are not guaranteed to be available at time of reservation.
