Last year, Best Western ran what may have been the absolute best hotel award promotion I’ve ever seen and somehow, it seemed like nobody was talking about it.

(SEE ALSO: I’m confused: Why aren’t more people talking about this deal?)

It was half-buried as a footnote to some other dumb hotel promotion like “double points on every stay”, but the net of it was that EVERY BEST WESTERN HOTEL in the US and Canada was bookable for only 10,000 points. It’s like the IHG Point Breaks list on steroids!

This year, they’re doing it again!

Best Western every hotel 10K promo details

This Best Western promo is good for stays between November 15, 2018 and January 15, 2019. The promo page talks a lot about “free night vouchers” and things like that, but it actually works exactly as you expect it would – when you make a reservation for a night in that time period, it just costs 10,000 points, even for hotels that normally cost 36,000 points or a ton of cash.  Compare these rates for Key West in December

Compare that with the cash rates on the same night

2.4 cents per point for a BEST WESTERN point?!!? That’s insane value – probably 3 times what a point is typically worth.  And actually it’s worth even more since that $242.10 rate doesn’t include taxes.

This promo is only good on Best Western hotels in the US, Canada and the Caribbean.

Best Western every hotel 10K fine print

Unfortunately, they must have learned a thing or two from last year’s promotion, as there is a bit of fine print that makes this year’s iteration not QUITE as lucrative
