Today is Day 4 of the US Travel Association’s Daily Getaways.

For those not familiar with Daily Getaways, over the next four weeks, travel deals and packages will be available on a first-come first-served each weekday from April 4, 2016 through May 6, 2016. For a look at the calendar with week 1 or week 2’s offers, click here.

The deal today is for Best Western Rewards points –

10,000 Best Western Rewards Points for $55
(835 packages available). Cost per point = .55 cents

The package goes on sale at 1pm EST today.

To purchase the deal today, click the individual link above or follow this link to the calendar for the week of April 4, 2016 and select the package you are interested in. You can purchase a maximum of 5 sets of points, so you’d max out at 50,000 Best Western Rewards points for $275.

Best Western Rewards points are typically sold through Best Western to their members in increments of 1,000 for $10 (with a maximum of 20,000 points per transaction) so if you purchase a Daily Getaways 10,000 points package you’ll be getting almost double the points you would ordinarily.

Best Western Rewards® points never expire, and there are over 4,000 properties worldwide. Many properties have inexpensive rates so it doesn’t always make sense to pay with points, but some offer decent value like the Best Western Plus Anaheim Inn by Disneyland in CA, that goes for around $170 a night or 28,000 points. If redeeming points purchased through Daily Getaways at .55 cents per point that comes out to $154 a night, a slight savings over the $170.

Another example is the Best Western The Plaza hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii which had a rate of $209 a night or 32,000 points when I checked random dates. If using points that were purchased at .55 cents per point, you’d essentially be paying $176 a night. The Best Western The Plaza in Hawaii may not be situated right on the beach, but it is ideal for a layover at Honolulu Airport with free shuttle service and a pool.

Ordinarily, Best Western properties might not be your first choice but if you already have some points saved up perhaps from a bunch of work stays, you may find today’s points sale to be a good option to top up your account for an upcoming stay at one of their higher-end properties.

Will you be purchasing the Best Western Points packages today?

    Yes! I landed 5x, not the feeding frenzy of other locations.

    I like BW points for roadtrips. I can make last minute bookings on weekends nights, where rates have gone up and win.

    Last Christmas, they had a discounted deal for turning points in TravelCards. 3,000 points equals $25 TravelCard, limit 10. So I got $250 of BW credit, for 30K points. I used this recently for a last minute stay at the BW Monterey Victorian Inn, which is Cat7 and 32K points a night but had no award rooms left on a Saturday night. But I was able to get a room and pay for it with multiple TravelCards no problem.

      Yay, you got in! That was a smart way to stay at the Monterey Victorian Inn property, Vicente. Since the TravelCards were treated as cash you had the upper hand on other hopefuls wanting a room for points!

      For weekend road trips I find that Best Western properties often shine in rural areas and in places where there just aren’t a lot of properties to choose from. The Best Western Rewards program has some sweet spots, and it looks like you are maximizing them.
