I booked five nights at Best Western Plus Beach Resort in Fort Myers. Regular price $309 USD/night.
I used the points from the 60k bonus for the BW mastercard from this summer which required a $2000 cdn spend.
So for $2000 spend I get $1972.22 cdn ($1545 usd) worth of hotel for free and I still have 10k points left over.
I almost feel like I am scamming them somehow.Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Doh..forgot to spend the 2k requirement before 90days.

Much regret, but I got 20,000 points though...

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.
"10k points" would be concise

It's not clear if the Elite benefit of getting 10% of the points back would apply to this 10k promotion. As a Diamond member, for recent stays I did also get 10% of the points back, as well as 500 points instead of welcome bag, and 250 points for survey.

Please report back after your stay, if you did get 10% of the 10k points, i.e. 1000 points back.

I think, in my case for Niagara Hotel it might work.. Like 10% percent point discount because std rate is also 10k when I booked ..

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.
Also wondering. Put my pts under a family members rewards acct to get to the higher status
I am happy to answer questions about my experience with Fido and Tangerine.

I currently have 20K points from Sept 2. Can I reserve 6 nights (60K points) for mid-December? Will they charge my credit card when I reserve to buy the missing points or on the day of my stay? I think 40K points will come at beginning of December. Thanks.

BW doesn't deduct points until the actual stay. But I just tried to book for more rooms while I don't have enough points, it does not allow saying I don't have enough points.

You can book 2 nights with points, and the other 4 nights with paying rate. When your points come in, cancel the paying rates and re-book with points.

None of the Best Westerns in North America are that great, unfortunately. The chain does have some strong properties in Europe.

Perhaps one of the BW Premier Collection properties?

Stayed at the sooke bc location on Vancouver island. About 20 to 30 minutes from downtown Victoria and lots to see and do between the two. Well worth 10k a night just to get away from winter cold but flights are $$$. Better off to fly down south to the USA.
