Is this a Good Deal?
You definitely don't want to get pulled into this deal without a game plan based on the scarcity (only 835 packages!) Best Western award nights range from 8,000 for (exceedingly rare) category 1 properties to 36,000 for category 8 properties. After a quick search of options for an upcoming trip to Miami, I found nothing on my dates that would offer significant savings. With the Atlantic Beach Resort shown below, I'd much rather pay $173 than go through the hassle of buying points for $165 to book the same room.
On the other hand, I could book a suite with a kitchen at this property in Los Angeles for 36,000 points. Buying 4 packages of points for $220 would still save me $119 on the nightly rate, and I'd have 4,000 points left over for a future trip.
As with all points purchase promotions, we never recommend purchasing points speculatively, even if you can see yourself using your points in a year or two. You may lose a lot of value if the company announces a sudden devaluation before you use your points. However, if you are a Best Western regular, then picking up points for 0.55 cents apiece is a deal worth considering.
