Have a stay at a Best Western hotel in mind? On April 7, 2016, at 1:00 pm Eastern Time, you can buy 10,000 Best Western points for $55 through Daily Getaways. And use them to save on award stays!
Daily Getaways starts selling discounted travel deals for 5 weeks beginning next week. But, many of these packages sell out fast!
I’ll explain the details!
Get 10,000 Best Western Points for $55
Link: Daily Getaways
Starting next week, Daily Getaways will have a new deal every weekday from April 4, 2016, through May 6, 2016.
On April 7, 2016, at 1:00 pm Eastern Time, you can buy 10,000 Best Western points for $55, or 0.55 cents each. And you can buy up to 5 sets of points (50,000 points total).
Normally, Best Western sells points for 1 cent each, so this is effectively a 45% discount. Then, you can use the points to get an award stay worth much more, depending on how you redeem them!
There are ~4,000 Best Western hotels worldwide, and over half of those are in the US. So if you travel domestically, it’s easy to find a Best Western hotel. And some of their hotels make good options for family vacations.
Be the Hare, Not the Tortoise
You have to be fast to get in on these deals because in past years, they’ve sold out within minutes! There are only 835 Best Western packages available this year. I expect they’ll sell out very quickly – take note of the start time!
This year, the limit is 5 of these packages per loyalty account number. You’ll get the points in your account within 10 to 15 business days.
Should You Buy This Deal?
It can make sense if you have a specific use in mind.
Be sure to run the numbers, because paid rooms at Best Western are often very cheap! It might not be worth it to use points in some cases, even at a discount.
That said, you can find great deals!
With the Daily Getaways Best Western deal, you can buy 20,000 Best Western points for $110, which covers your stay here. That’s like saving ~$59 on your room, or getting a 35% discount!
Use Your Points!
Best Western points never expire. So you can redeem them whenever you want.
Award prices can change at any time, so I only recommend buying points if you think you’ll spend them relatively soon.
Best Western does NOT publish an award chart. But you can use AwardMapper to find out how many points you’ll need at any Best Western hotel.
Other Daily Getaways Deals to Consider
There are lots of deals to choose from this year, including:
- Save 50% (or More!) at Choice Hotels With Daily Getaways Travel Deals
- Get Half Off Busch Gardens and SeaWorld Theme Park Admission With Daily Getaways
- Save 50% on IHG Points With Daily Getaways for Cheap Award Stays
I’ll let you know which deals are worth it!
At 1:00 pm Eastern Time on April 7, 2016, you can purchase 10,000 Best Western points for $55 through Daily Getaways.
That’s a 45% discount off the normal price!
There are only 835 of these packages for sale this year. And I expect they’ll sell quickly. In past years, they’ve sold out within the 1st few minutes – set a reminder if you’re interested!
This offer can make sense for more expensive hotels near popular tourist destinations. As always, do the math before you book to be sure you’re getting a good deal.
