IIRC, I got 60k points by getting an MBNA BW card. Time machines don't exist I know, but just letting people know how high it can go to.
They don't exist, but these stuff can repeat. This is the 2nd year I got my 60k. I know someone from this forum who did it 5 times. Hopefully next year too!

Sone BW hotels are 10000 points to book year-round but with this promo even the higher tier hotels are available for 10000 points. The benefit is in booking the better ones.
Perhaps, but I booked the nicest BW in San Diego and LA, and they were and still are 10k points.....Just Sayin`

I did put the word "redemption", and no "$" so it shouldn't be confused with $10k. Are you saying you want the words "10k BW points" to be clear? It'd make the title longer.

It wont let me book a Premier using 10K.
I found many properties won't let you book with 4 persons, but if putting in 2 persons for the search, they show up (i.e. available). Try searching with 2 persons, and select using points. If it still is not available, then perhaps that hotel is not participating?

From FAQ

I am having trouble booking a free night with more than 2 guests, who should I call?
Free night reservations will accommodate up to two adults and two children. Additional fee’s may apply for additional adults and are up to the discretion of the hotel. For additional help contact Best Western Rewards customer service at 800-237-8483.

Just a heads up that for the 60k promotion (and so potentially for the current 40k promo), the first 20k points show up fairly quickly but the other 40k points (or 20k in this case) can take some time to arrive. For me, my first 20k points came at July 20th and the other 40k points came Oct 20th.

Can you share what those nice properties are. We'll be going to S Cal, and didn't find too many properties in LA for low amount of points. Went to NY and Grand Circle area, the lowest was 20k (which happened to be the nicest BW hotel we ever stayed in, Bryce Canyon Ruby Inn), and the others were all higher, some >30k

I booked both of these for 10k a night... in October....maybe they had an unadvertised deal.

Best Western Plus Sunset Plaza Hotel - West Hollywood
Best Western Plus Bayside Inn - San Diego

Does anyone know whether or not you need to be present at the hotel to redeem? I was thinking about booking a room for my wife's girls weekend and she isn't on my account.

I just tried April/18. The Sunset Plaza in LA is showing 36k points. The San Diego Bayside is showing 28k points.

You must have booked in Oct., for the promotion dates (Nov/17 - Jan/18). Outside of those times, the higher rate applies.

So you made use of the current deal, 10k points.
