Best Western Rewards launched a targeted email promo where when you complete one qualifying stay at a Best Western-branded hotel between February 11-April 14, 2013, you get a voucher for a free night to be used on or before June 30, 2013, at Best Westerns-branded hotels in the US, Canada or the Caribbean.

The promo was targeted to email recipients, but might as well try registering.

You can register here with your Best Western Rewards Membership number or your email address. The promo says it is for members who have been pre-selected to participate in the promo and received an email from Best Western Rewards, but you might as well try registering and seeing if it works since a free night is nothing to shrug off.

Per the terms and conditions, a “qualified stay” is defined as one or more consecutive nights at the same Best Western-branded hotel at a rate eligible for earning points or airline/partner rewards. Only one check-in/check-out is permitted per qualified stay.

“Free night voucher redemption subject to hotel availability. Free night voucher redemption reservation must be completed by calling 18005674009. If a valid email address has been provided in the Member’s account profile, the free night voucher may be sent electronically to the valid email address 23 weeks from completion of the qualified stay. Otherwise, a paper voucher will be mailed to the address provided (on the Member’s account profile) 46 weeks from the completion of the qualified stay.”

Use your free night voucher at a higher-end property for a better return on your dollar.

While this isn’t like the Hyatt Faster Free nights or even 50,000+ Carlson bonanzas of yesteryear, it’s something decent in a sea of bland hotel promos.

Stay Three, Stay Free
Best Western also launched a non-targeted promotion called Stay Three, Stay Free.

If you aren’t able to get in on the targeted deal, Best Western also launched its “Stay Three, Stay Free” promotion today lasting until April 14, 2013. During this time period if you are a Best Western Rewards member, you register for this promotion and you stay with the chain three separate times, you will earn a voucher for a free night at any Best Western hotel in the U.S., Canada, or the Caribbean to  be redeemed any time before June 30, 2013.
