The benefits of Best Western Rewards far outweigh its cons (or is there really one?). Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ loyalty program, Best Western Rewards (BWR), has earned the nod in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hotel Rewards Programs list. This marks the seventh consecutive year that BWR has received this coveted recognition, honouring the tremendous value it brings to the program’s members.

If you haven’t signed up yet, here are some of the benefits of Best Western Rewards:

Exclusive member rates

The primary benefit of being a member is to avail of hotel rates offered only for members depending on the status. Enjoy exclusive perks such as attractive discounts, free nights, early check-in and late check-out, no blackout dates, and earn points at every stay.

Members earn triple points on every eligible stay from September 12 to November 21, 2022. Stay in any Best Western hotel in Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Pakistan. Members must register for the offer through the website prior to the completion of their first eligible stay during the campaign period.

Pay with points

One of the benefits of Best Western Rewards is members can reserve their next hotel stay using accumulated loyalty points to pay for part of their booking, allowing for added flexibility when planning their next hotel stay. By using Pay with Points, BWR members no longer have to wait to reach the free room night threshold and can tap into their points right away to redeem discounted room rates at hotels.

To redeem Pay with Points, a minimum of 5,000 points is required, which translates to a USD 25 saving on a hotel booking. BWR members will also earn 10 points for every dollar spent on the paid portion of the Pay with Points reservation.

Rich rewards & incentives

One of the benefits of Best Western Rewards is earning points that can be redeemed as gift cards, free nights, and one-of-a-kind adventures.

BWR’s tagline – “Because We Care About Rewarding You” – underscores how the program’s perks are driven by BWHR’s foundational commitment to caring for guests. In 2020, BWHR was the first in the industry to extend Elite status to its BWR members at the start of the pandemic. In 2021, the company cut its Elite Status eligibility qualifications in half to make it easier for travellers to earn loyalty status and further extended loyalty status through March 31, 2023, without needing to fulfil the necessary qualifications.
