If you’re planning a road trip, family reunion, or prefer budget-friendly hotels, there’s a great new promotion for summer travel from Best Western!
Via Frequent Flyer Bonuses, you’ll earn a $10 Best Western travel card for each eligible night you stay at Best Western hotels from May 22, 2017, to September 4, 2017.
And the deal is even sweeter for folks with a AAA or CAA membership. They’ll earn a $20 Best Western travel card for each eligible night they stay in the same timeframe.
This is an excellent deal, because previous promotions would award a bonus based on stays, not nights. But you must register before you stay to earn a travel card.
Best Western Hotels Are Ideal for Families, Road-Trippers, and Folks on a Budget, Because Everyone Gets Free Breakfast!
I’ll explain the details and help you decide if it’s worth switching paid stays to Best Western!

Via One Mile at a Time, you can convert hotel points from 9 hotel programs to American Airlines and receive a 25% bonus through June 15, 2017.
I usually do NOT recommend transferring hotel points to airlines, because you’ll get much less value per point. But there are some situations where it makes sense!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Kris, commented:
My hotel points expire in April 2017. If I use them to book an award stay for February 2018, can I cancel the stay in January 2018 and get the points back?
Points in most hotel loyalty programs expire after 12 to 24 months of no earning or redemption activity. Although there are a few exceptions.
But reader Kris suggested a way to keep hotel points from expiring that works with some hotel chains. But I’d caution folks to read the cancellation policy before using this trick. Because you don’t want to risk losing your points!
The Best Way to Keep Points From Expiring Is by Booking Award Stays at Hotels Like the Hyatt Centric Chicago!
I’ll explain which chains work to use the book and cancel trick. And remind y’all some easy ways you can generate activity in your hotel loyalty account to keep points alive!
