Not content with mere Hyatt Diamond, I am now a Best Western Diamond Select.
The published benefits include a 50% bonus points per stay.
Where Best Western really shines is the unpublished benefits. Diamond Select get executive lounge access at all Best Westerns worldwide*.
You have a shot at joining me in this envied status.
Second, you have today 11/18 and next Friday, 11/25 to spin for an instant prize in Best Western’s 70th anniversary Smilebration. short take is each Friday in November you can have a spin at an instant prize, enter here.
My 11/11 yielded a status tier upgrade. I was not matched to Diamond until a few hours later. That was not an issue: on Thursday I was bumped up to Diamond Select.
Today I won another status tier upgrade, so I expect to head to unpublished super status next week.
My wife has twice won a supposedly better prize, 700 points. Next week is her last spin to join me.
Why pursue Best Western Diamond Select? You never know who will match it. I may need another Hilton Diamond boost next year.
*I confess, that bit about lounges is a little joke. Not too many with executive lounges, I reckon. There are some 5-star Best Westerns, maybe they do have some executive lounges.
