Just received an email offering up to 60,000 Best Western Rewards points for applying Best Western Rewards Mastercard credit card. Looks pretty good deal for a no fee card. Details are as follows:

https://apply.mbna.ca/applicationform/g ... cale=en_CA

Get Up To 7 Free Nights!

Take advantage of this special limited-time offer for new cardholders and earn up to 60,000 Best Western Rewards® points.†† Apply for the Best Western Rewards Mastercard® credit card and if approved:

• Get 20,000 bonus points†† after your first eligible purchase--that's already enough points for at least ONE FREE NIGHT**
• Spend $1,000 or more within the first 90 days of account opening and get an additional 20,000 bonus points†† OR
• Spend $2,000 or more within the first 90 days of account opening and get a total of 60,000 bonus points††

With 60,000 points, you could get up to 7 free nights (a whole week!) at some Best Western hotels or up to $225 in gift cards.**

But hurry--this offer expires on August 31, 2017.

**All redemptions of Best Western Rewards points are completed through the Best Western Rewards program. Free nights range from 8,000 to 36,000 points, depending on the property type and location.

The Toronto-Dominion Bank has no responsibility or liability for any aspect of this promotion.

††To qualify for this offer, an applicant must be approved for the specific credit card account described in the offer and the account must be used within the first 90 days of account opening for at least one or more transactions that are not subsequently rescinded, the subject of a charge back request or otherwise disputed. 20,000 BWR bonus points will be awarded if eligible transactions total less than CDN$1,000; 40,000 BWR bonus points will be awarded if eligible transactions total between CDN$1,000-$1,999.99; and 60,000 BWR bonus points will be awarded if eligible transactions total CDN$2,000 or more.

Does anyone have a link to the hotel category redemption? Assume different hotels require different rates?
this site is like a drug. Its forum is the drug dealer.

There are 3 ways to get this card:

1) Through the 60K points link described in this thread, which requires $2K spending in 90 days;
2) Through the 40K points link here: https://apply.mbna.ca/applicationform/g ... cale=en_CA
3) Through GCR which gives 20K points + $60.

You should opt for the 60K points link if you do not have a problem with the $2K spending. The other offers are awarded on your first use of the card.
I have done all three offers at some point and prefer the 40K point option.

Anybody know how long you have to wait, after the last 60k (or other) promo, before you're eligible for the bonus 60k total?

You can search for hotels on their site and choose 'Best Western Reward Points' on the rates section. https://www.bestwestern.com/en_US.html

Yes, different hotels have different rates and it will display on your search results. I got into this last year for 60K bonus points and used that on our trip to Tokyo. The hotel was pretty nice and clean and close to the subway, groceries, restaurants, shops, etc. Would highly recommend getting in on this deal.

My experience was totally the opposite in West Palm Beach BW Plus. Wouldn't even consider it a hotel, more like a glorified motel, small rooms, old. Only saving grace was the breakfast. Fortunately we were there for only around 36 hours.
It was so much of a turn off that I will never consider BW again and use the left over points for a GC.
It has a spend amount of $2000 compared to other free points cards, to get the full 60000 points but yes the card is free after the first year too.

Darn. Last week I applied using the regular link of 20k promo. I wonder if I can get in on this deal. Haven't received my card yet.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with BW hotel. I totally agree with you that some of them are just motels. We also have a BW hotel near us and it looks old and worn down. But the one we stayed at in Tokyo is really nice and clean and the staffs are exceptional. We also had it for 12K points per night and was able to get 5 free nights. That's a lot of savings for us right there.

For those who have the card, how do you get the gold status? It says 4-6 weeks after 1st purchase but still nothing in my account after 2 months.
