Best Western rewards - 4800 pts for $25 Amazon GC

to all those RFD members with Best Western points, BW is now offering 25.00 virtual GC to Amazon for 4800 points. This is excellent when you compare:

Shell GC 25.00 = 6300 points
Walmart GC 25.00 = 6500 points

Of course, it's better to use your points for stays at BW, but it is so restrictive on which days they will accept points that it's not work my research anymore.

Thanks for the info.

BTW, don't really understand your last bit about redeeming Points for Stays at BW... Cause that certainly has not been our experience.

And besides, you can always get a similar Points for Cash GC if you wanted to (4500 Points = $ 25 Cdn BW Card), and those are usuable anytime against your bill... Just like Cash.

Thanks for the tip. Will look into that as we may be away for a night or two in November.

UPDATE
OFFER:

Must be a BW Rewards Member, and must Register for this promotion.

BW Rewards Members will earn double rewards points on every stay between September 18, 2017 and November 30, 2017.

Exclusive Offer: 10,000 points for a FREE Night between November 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018 at any Best Western® branded hotel in North America!
Then there is a whole bunch of fine print... None of which truly seems to lay out / explain how the 10,000 Points Exclusive Offer portion works.

But guessing it overall means, you earn double points on every stay (Sept 18 - Nov 30), and that you can cash in at all North American Hotels between November 1st and January 31st for a FREE Night for just 10,000 Points. Good Offer, but clearly NOT THE SAME as earning 10,000 Points for each stay in the Promo Period. Double points are good, but it still might take a few nights to rack up 10,000 Points for a FREE Night.

Reward Nights for 10,000 Points a night nothing to scoff at. Especially for those of us that currently have points in the bank, assuming that the offer would apply to already earned points as well.
