Best Western Reward MBNA MC - 60K bonus is back?

Deal Link:
Expiry:
August 31, 2017
Retailer:
MBNA
I just got an email from them offering 60K (if approved, after spending $2K in 90 days). I got that bonus last year with the card and just canceled it earlier this year. I just got Marriott (2nd time) in May, and Scotia Amex last week, not sure if it's good idea to apply this card now (3 cards in less than 2 months)

It says 150 days before getting the points. Anyone who signed up last years offer got the points earlier? Thanks

It takes forever to get the points ... and if you don't provide your BWR # to MBNA over the phone before first month you may never get them until many more phone calls to try to fix it :)
POLL: How frequent is your RRSP-matching?
Plastiq: Pay any bill with credit card for 0-2.5% fee (help meet min spending and keep old cards active!)
Rewards program transfer times (e.g. SPG->Aeroplan, Marriott->SPG, Amex MR->SPG...)

I made the mistake of not providing a BW account, long story short, mbna says it issued points to BW, BW says they didn't receive them, back and forth, finally got mbna to reissue points after 6 or 7 months. I basically called mbna each month.

Yeah, they had problem with my initial points too. I got 40,000 pretty quickly, but not the first 20,000. MBNA said they sent, but BW didn't see it. I too made several phone calls to both and they resent the points. Then somehow those missing points miraculously showed up couple of months later, so I ended up with 80,000 :)

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://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/cl ... LSNSUBSITE

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. Best Western Rewards members must have the necessary number of points to redeem for a free night based on the hotel's individual point tier level. Should you not have the required amount of points for the stay upon arrival, you will be required to pay the prevailing rate. 20,000 BWR points is enough for 1 free night at a level 4 Best Western branded hotel. 60,000 BWR points is enough for 7 free nights at a level 1 Best Western branded hotel, or up to $225 in gift cards. 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. In each case, all eligible transactions must occur within 90 days of account opening. Please allow 150 days from the account opening date for the BWR bonus points to be posted to your points account. Limit one-time bonus point offer (no cash value) per new account. This promotion is offered by MBNA and Best Western and may be amended or cancelled at any time without notice.

There is no annual fee. Very nice.
Rule No.1 here: Buy first, Think afterwards.

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.

Agreed. Only thing is I already have 2 credit cards. Don't know if I want a third one. My wallet's getting too busy... :D

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?
