Well, I'm giving you the datapoints from last year's 60K promo. If you want to read through the posts, here's the link to that thread:
http://forums.redflagdeals.com/best-wes ... e-1978927/

Too bad the mods didn't lock that thread, as now there are people posting there for answers, when they should be posting here. Or merge the two threads.

Anyways, only the initial 20K after first purchase will appear after the first statement closing date. The next 2x 20K won't post till the third statement, if the same pattern repeats this year. But, we won't know yet for sure till some people from this year's promo see their second statement. Anyone there yet, and can offer some feedback?

Edit: just wanted to add, the first time a 60K promo was in play (2013?) I spent $2K shortly after my first statement. Got the next 40K on my second statement, but I was in the minority. Most had to wait till the third statement.
Thanks for the link. I'll post here once I start getting the points but as I just got it it'll be awhile.

I'll post my experience once everything is said and done. Applied in mid July, got the card near the end of July, my statement closing date was Aug. 4. I spent $2000+ by Aug. 2 (so before the first statement closed). Right now I see a bonus of 20,000 plus the 1 point for every dollar spent.

I'll follow up when I see any sign of the other 40,000, but everyone interested will probably already know Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I don't see anything about 60,000 points when I follow the link... Does it work anyways?

Thanks

Same here. Applied for the card July 9, first purchase made July 21, first statement closing date Aug 8. I hadn't spent 1K by the closing date, but am over 1K as of today. Right now I see a bonus of 20K plus the 1 point for every dollar spent under the "Earning Activity" Rewards page on mbna.ca, and 20K plus my closing balance under the "Transfer Activity" Rewards page. Will also follow up next month. Hopefully bizee-bee is right about the other 40K pts, or this will have all been a waste and I'll cancel it.

If my maths is right I'm $126 away from 2K. I haven't got my 2nd statement yet but I will post if I get anything.

When I called MBNA I was told the first 20K was offered by MBNA but the other 40K was offered by Best Western as a bonus. If this is true, will the 40K ever show up in the rewards section of the MBNA account? or will it be triggered after the base 2K points hit your BW rewards account and then added to the BW account? just wondering.

I'm over $2K already, with a little buffer, just in case. At the MBNA Rewards page I saw neither the 20K when exceeding $1K, nor the next 20K when reaching $2K total spend. My 2nd statement will cycle next week.

Last year's 60K promo, I saw 40K posted online at MBNA Rewards page a few days before my 3rd statement cycled. Then saw them on my statement. Then saw them at BWR account shortly after. I don't know why they say it's offered by Best Western (said the same thing to people, as reported in last year's thread), but the points DID show up for me at the MBNA Rewards page, both the initial 20K and final lump sum 40K.

I applied, decision pending. Also it did not ask for BWR number. Is that account auto created when card is approved ?

MBNA took away the field entry for the BWR and Alaska Air membership account numbers a couple of years ago. The Mileage Plan field is back now on the Alaska Air MC application page, but for whatever reason they've continued to omit it from the Best Western MC application - maybe they want to shoo-away the existing BWR members?

Anyways, sign up on your own at BestWestern.com, if you don't already have a BWR account. Then when you get your new card activated, call and have them link in your BWR #. You can call before you get the card, but it's 50/50 that you'll get a high-level rep that can accomplish this. There's no rush, just do the association before the first statement cycles. Look back a few pages, you'll see conversations about this very topic. Avoid the potential hassles of waiting for MBNA/Best Western to create an account for you. They can do it, but most datapoints tend to be of frustrations if you don't link an existing self-created number.
