Best Western Free Status Match
Status Match…No Catch® offer (“Offer”) is open to new and existing Best Western Rewards® members (“Members”) who reside in a participating country, territory, or region and wish to upgrade their new or existing Best Western Rewards Elite Status Membership level to a level equal to, but not higher than, their current elite tier/status level in any other competing hotel chain’s loyalty program (“Competitor Loyalty Program”). To complete the Offer, Members must complete the Offer form available at www.bestwestern.com and send it to Best Western International, Inc. via one of the methods discussed therein. As stated in the Offer form, Members must provide proof of their current Competitor Loyalty Program elite tier/status level in one of the following forms: (i) a copy of their current Competitor Loyalty Program elite tier/status statement or (ii) a copy of their current Competitor Loyalty Program elite tier/status card. If Members have questions concerning the Offer, they should contact Best Western International, Inc.’s customer care department via telephone at 800-444-7646 or email at StatusMatch@bestwestern.com.
Best Western International, Inc. will determine the equivalent Best Western Rewards Elite Status Membership level that matches the Member’s current Competitor Loyalty Program elite tier/status level, based upon a review of the number of nights, stays, and/or points required to meet the comparable elite tier/status level. Best Western Rewards Elite Status Membership levels are Gold Elite Status (awarded after ten (10) nights, seven (7) eligible stays**, or 10,000 Best Western Rewards Points*** in one (1) calendar year), Platinum Elite Status (awarded after fifteen (15) nights, ten (10) eligible stays, or 15,000 Best Western Rewards Points in one (1) calendar year), Diamond Elite Status (awarded after thirty (30) nights, twenty (20) eligible stays, or 30,000 Best Western Rewards Points in one (1) calendar year), and Diamond Select Elite Status (awarded after fifty (50) nights, forty (40) eligible stays, or 50,000 Best Western Rewards Points in one (1) calendar year). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, an upgrade to Diamond Select Elite Status is not available through this Offer. A new Elite Status Best Western Rewards card will be shipped to the mailing address provided in the Member’s account profile within 4 to 6 weeks following the upgrade. Only elite tier/status level will be matched (competing hotel chain’s point levels will not be matched). All Best Western Rewards program rules apply. See www.bestwesternrewards.com for complete program terms and conditions and to learn more about the various Best Western Rewards Elite Status Membership levels. Offer may not be valid with any other offer, promotion, or discount. Offer is subject to cancellation or change without notice. Best Western International, Inc.’s decisions are final on all matters relating to this Offer.
**An “eligible stay” for the purposes of this Offer is defined as any stay (i.e., one or more consecutive nights at the same Best Western branded hotel) with the exception of a stay booked through an online travel agency, a stay booked through a tour operator, and a stay booked at a special discounted rate (see Best Western Rewards program rules for further information on eligibility criteria). Only one (1) check-in/check-out permitted per eligible stay.
***“Best Western Rewards Points” for the purposes of this Offer is defined as Points that result from eligible stays only but excluding Bonus Points or promotional points (see Best Western Rewards program rules for further information on definitions for these capitalized terms).
If you have any stays coming up with Best Western, this is likely worth doing to get a free status match if you have status with another hotel chain.
