Best Western’s 70th anniversary Smilebration just came to my attention.
The short take is each Friday in November you can have a spin at an instant prize, enter here. I missed the first. There is still time for 11/11 at time of my posting and then 11/18 and 11/25 are coming up. If you want to wade through the details, The Gate has a detailed write-up. I just let ‘er rip. I got a status tier upgrade and my wife got 700 points.
Best Western Status Match
I had been procrastinating on a Best Western status match. Many programs match to Best Western Diamond. You can see reports on Status Matcher. My Hyatt Diamond should be good for Best Western Diamond. I sent off my match and hope that is processed before the status tier upgrade I won is processed so can get Diamond Select.
But I don’t stay at Best Western, why match? Well, other hotels may match from there. I have even heard mixed reports of Hilton matching to their Diamond. Also, heard reports that Best Western status is sticky, not necessarily expiring at end of year.
